I like the looks of the low sitting trucks. If you raise it any just do it about an inch just for a little more ground clearance. Other than that, leave it alone lol

isn't it a little short for a 2 wheel puller, I watch NTPA and they tend to look alot longer than that. maybe it is just cause the all seem to chop the tops for that lowrider look

The are useing the midsize bodies and my hood is 6" longer than a 2007 truck the bed is 80" it just looks short because of cab is so big. All the trucks are the same lenght 15' ft from the center of the rear axle to the front of the frame you are alow 10" of fiberglass casmedicks like a bumper as long it is fiberglass and molded to the body.

Looks good Dale. So what kind of paint job are you gonna go with, or are you going to go with one of those wild multi graphics vinyl wraps?

Looking good Dale! The garage is fairly deep, I think the angle of the picture is slightly misleading- look how long the front fender appears. It's about 2' longer than my ride.
