Looks much better than I expected! Nice!





I was half expecting sheet metal fenders like this! This also happens to be the truck Rabies was referring to.

when you get to the point you don't care about aesthetics anymore its very freeing.
however. the tank truck could have been lowered 1 more foot with much wider tires

I clearanced the inner fender area on all 4 corners. No rubbing lock to lock on metal. Because of the camber/caster curve on these trucks I need a little more negative camber to keep from pushing out the flares under full lock and full compression so I'll be buying the Beebani UCA soon. Possibly doing coilovers as well but it will be a while because of other things I need to get done first.

Hitch is a class 3 and model specific for the truck. You cut the ends square, get rid of the brackets and slide it up inside the frame then weld/gusset it in place. Raises the receiver about 6" from where the brackets place it. Works great and does a good job of stiffening the rear of the frame.
