Not quite yet… I am changing up the back too… Putting a roll pan on and ditching the bumper.. and got another cherry tail gate… and I am not going t flip the handle this time.. although it looks awesome.. it sucks if you fill up the bed, and I can’t seem to keep it from cracking the mud!!!
Now… Roll pans are usually easy chessey to put on.. but not Mine… I think when the last pan was drug off… they just cut it off and went too wide… so first off, I had to make new bed inner and lower bed side….. and I angled it back a bunch more… and from the body drop, the bed is a little weird.. so I had to cut off the whole top lip and remake custom… it’s been quite a pain in the ass…. But I’m getting there!!! and having a great weekend working on my truck!!!BBWBParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 1:11 pmPost count: 748
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.John JonesKeymasterDecember 10, 2019 at 7:15 amPost count: 6124
small update…. My back has been kicking my ass!!! But I have made some baby steps.. I got my bed minus dually fenders painted blue again.. Roll Pan and tailgate all worked and primed and sanded and gonna Paint today! The biggest job left is the dually rear fenders.. it was nice pulling them off, Last time I had them off I fixed all the hardware and shit… BUT…. CHRIS didn’t do me any favors when I let him drive it… The drivers fender got the shit drug out of it at some point… and broke off the mounting hole and brace and shit….. 8-( fucker 😎 I’ll fix it…. 😎 almost there… 😎 Then on to the cab…. I’m doing it in pieces cause it’s just too big for me to tackle all at once… 😎John JonesKeymasterDecember 10, 2019 at 11:55 amPost count: 6124
more parts painted.., now onto the darn fiberglass…. Not my specialty… but still in my tool kit of skills… 😎 Fiberglass seems like it ALWAYS cracks always gets those tiny cracks.. I guess once the original gel coat is messed up.. Your screwed?
I can’t remember exactly why.. but I put some BIG OL tires on the front rims last time I replaced em… I must have thought they may make a smoother ride or something?? anyway… .. It’s larger than my rears!!! So I ordered some 255/25/24’s!!! 😎 😎 yeah thats right.. 25 series..wow… like a rubber band,., 😎 But I’m not worried about my rim getting damaged.. 😎
I bet that bumper lays flat on the fucking ground when I get them tires swapped out. 😎 😎John JonesKeymasterDecember 12, 2019 at 9:26 amPost count: 6124
working on fiberglass… I got one close.. and one about 1/4 the way there…. 😎John JonesKeymasterDecember 14, 2019 at 9:18 amPost count: 6124
Still working on these big bitches… 😎
Did I mention I ordered the smallest front tire I could… Just to see… I like it.. and now.. My bumper is ohh 1/4 from the ground.. Like I was hoping for.. 😎 and my hood isn’t trying to pop off from the tires pushing up.. My front cross member lays firmly on the ground now.. 😎
Got the tail gate and roll pan on .. like the rear view better now.. 😎WillyModeratorDecember 14, 2019 at 11:42 amPost count: 1007

Cmon! It’s just a rim mock-up shot!!! 😉 😉 🙂John JonesKeymasterDecember 15, 2019 at 9:10 amPost count: 6124
They are ridiculously small… 😎 I will go with some 30 series next time… I just wanted to do it… and see it 😎
Still not done with them rear dually fenders.. My back is kicking my ass like no other.. 8-( Somethings gotta give.. this shit hurts..
