got the bed sides built .. OBVIOUSLY .. it's just "sitting there" just to get an "idea"







The rim/tire size is way to big .. to much offset .. so I need to at least throw on the OE stockers , to continue
and I'm thinkin a "bob" cuz it just seems to long ?

finally some work on my 2wd
after sweeping an inch of dust off .. got a plan in mind .
I need to get the body positioned in order to work on the flip front , as well as the rest . So off came the "fatties" and got a few "hangers" in place to hold the body where I need it to be .

as well as figuring out the correct back spacing for the wheels ..











cool thing is , it's still on the dollies , so it's still movable Smile

so , popped the fatties off of the wheels to make sure they were going to fit
this is what it looks like with the tires stuffed into the fenders








inners are real close , but they fit
