    Looks like someone started to bed line it, and did not finish. Oh well, still protects paint....

    And, I had my mechanic put a cass III receiver on before I did any towing with the truck.

    Truck doesn't look to bad! Shame that its a little beat up on the bed. But otherwise a pretty good looker!

    Thanks! Maybe some day I will re do it and make it as nice as your F Superduty, but for now it does its job just fine.
    Thanks! Has the 5.8 under the hood, but I am not doing a plow since it 2wd, and I really only snow blow some 2 car driveways with a little 18" toro.

    If it is doable to snow plow with a 2wd, might have to look into something.

    But could I do it? Possibly move plow over to another truck at some point?

    Doubt I would though. Don't do much snow removal at all.

    I think it would not be worth it too.

    Plowing with a 2WD pickup…. bad idea IMO. Need some commercial tags on that truck! Illegal to operate it for commercial purposes without commercial tags, insurance, and registration fees ;)

    I should have checked to see if your truck was 4 x 4. Now look at all the BS you have to put up with:laughing:

    Anyone know where I can buy the Challenger Deflecta-Sheild Aluminum Products badge? Drivers side box is missing it, and it bothers me.

    Might have to call mfg?
