    Hey guys got the truck back from the body shop a few weeks back after having some work done. What do you guys think? There is a 8" xblade on her for this season.

    I got in a accident last winter while plowing, had the dent pulled out of the side. while they were at it they did new wheel wells on both sides, fixed the roof where a visor had rotted holes. they also fixed the rust on the bottoms of the doors, and painted the entire roof/bed. Just a little work!

    The rack is a protech. its meshed not lovered. louvers are for fags. and no lights in the rack. i have whelen hideaways at all four corners. The aluminum rack is the only way to go. screw back racks lol no rust ever. plus it just looks boss.

    Yup, my wheel wells are rotted. When you say new wheel wells, what does that mean. I have been looking for a "kit" that just has weel wells you cut and weld in. I hope for your sake they did not cut the rust out and just use bondo.

    im busting stones. i got mine for $200 on craigslist so i didnt have the option, the lights recessed in are definetly badass. The wheel wells were cut out then new steel was welded in. i was present to make sure thats how they were done. light light light skim coat just to feather the edge in.

    I certainly don't envy you east coasters with all of your rust. Out here, you couldn't get things to rust if you tried.

    Nice truck. They seemed to have done a nice job.
