Steve, Good looking truck...Where did you get the cut out fender flares? I've been looking all over and can't seem to find them for the double cab. Also, do you have more up close pics of how you did the satoshi? Thanks

Did you have to do any modifications for the cutouts to fit? or is there any cutting needed? And thanks for the quick response.

with the cut outs i had to cut about a 1" by 10" piece off of each side of the fender along with the pinch weld mod to make them fit, and you have to drill holes in the side of the fenders to put the bolts in. and i dont have any close ups on the grillcraft but i can definitely answer any questions it was pretty easy to do

OK cool I just looked at Bushwackers website for installation instructions and believe I will be order a set soon.

As far as the grill, how did you secure the mesh to the surround?

Yeah they are definitely nice... I had no choice with my tire combo I would've been pulled over right away if i didnt have them.

the mesh had tabs on it that you just sent a screw into the inner part of the grille surround

Nice truck! .. I was searching around for your build and I just found it. lol. Just curious.. why did you go with 15's instead of 16s? Are tires cheaper for 15's? Are you running wheel spacers?

Thanks Guys! I went with 15"s mostly because it was cheaper and I personally prefer more rubber than rim. And no im not running wheel spacers.

I just started school so not much else is going to be happening to the truck till next summer, but im looking to make my own sliders and hopefully get an arb compressor so i have some on board air. And im getting a plate bumper and winch within the next couple of weeks
