    Can I ask why? It looked good before you even started ripping it apart! Seems like a waste of money and time JMO

    yea, the bed was rusting out on the wheel wells, the rear bumper was just black and rusted, front was chrome but hated it , the left door was dented and rotted same with left side cab corner. so i figured it would be smart to fix it... oh well

    True and if you could do most of it yourself it most likely didn't cost as much! Looks nice
