well considering that we are talking about the rear... its not relevant. also since my truck is picturered as an fx4,and there is only one engine for the fx4, im sure he can figure that out.

Nice. Still looks good. I remember your rig from a while back. Keep up the good work. I've always loved white-colored dune jumpers...

Well it was a hard, gut wrenching feeling tearing apart my PERFECT interior but it had to be done.






it was surprisingly hard to get the dash out





put back what was necessary to steer



tried to get my windsheild out in a civilized manner at first, ended with me kicking at it...still in there..any secrets?




I will be getting metal today. my goal is to have my cab solid mounted and the A-pillars done by about 3am tomorrow :icon_welder:
