    Looks good Kyle . But I see what you mean about the bar in the lights. That is weird since it is built just like mine and mine dose not do that and the Claps dosent either.

    Thanks fellas...

    Steve, ya i dont know what happened but its about an inch and half short. I had already got it powdercoated before i put it up on the truck. Whatever though, no big deal, still serves its purpose.

    And for whatever reason my sig was wrong, i have 33's. 285/75/r16

    Oh ya, and the light bar is just a dual rotator. I saw them for about $130-$150 but i found out if you spend 5g's and beg you can sometimes get them for free :dizzy:

    i just sold my 92 chevy one ton. I dont know what they did, must have undercoated it when it was new. Not a spec of rust on the damn thing, frame or body, and as far as i know its been in ohio its whole life.

    The stroker is horrible. everything underneath is rusty. Not to the point of holes or anything like that just really sh*tty and rusty. The bed is a different story though. Bubbling and one or two small holes starting to come through on the wheel wells. I saw this when i bought it but knew my uncle had a bed for it so wasnt all that concerned. Just was crazy when you would compare it to the chevy.

    Im like most guys, probably worse. I can't stand a dirty truck, inside or out. Twice a year, fall and spring, i take my trucks to a buddys company i've dealt with for alot of years to get them fully detailed. I'm probably gonna end up spending alot this spring cause of the EXCESSIVE amount of tar all over the stroker. Went on a riding trip this fall and had to cross a road that was freshly paved, in freshly i mean hours old. Tar everywhere, running boards, inner fender wells, fenders, bed side, doors, a $75 dollar stainless steel exhuast tip installed the previous night was turned solid black..... I was trilled :realmad:

    did you have any problems or trouble with mounting your toolbox to the backrack? my buddy was thinking of make the bottom square into flat steel so that the toolbox wouldn't be sitting up off the bed. I think it looks kind of neat that way

    I didnt have any problems. Actually just set everything in place and drilled all the way through. from the toolbox to the bed. 3 bolts a side and mounted the whole setup that way. I'm 5'10'' and can reach about a foot and a half in on either side. Have to jump in the bed to to get to the middle of the box though

    Oh ok, I have the same size tire, I think I'll get 305's next time though!
