Great build, Matt!

I was wondering how far your tires stick out pass your fender wells (if any) with your tire/wheel combo.

There pretty close to flush, the side wall of the tire is about the only part that is outside the fender flare.

Installed a motorcycle bed bar I had made. I'll get it powder coated and LED bed lights installed after I get back from Mexico.

Whats the thickness on that material? I load bikes up every weekend and although the stock cleats have yet to fail me, I hate the way they flex the whole rail and am pondering ideas to build something similar to yours.

Rolled down to San Felipe for the Baja 250.

5 bikes, 5 guys and all the gear. Truck handled like a dream, plenty of power. Gas MPG not so good, we averaged 12MPG but had a lot of weight.

Hi Garrett - Yes I saw you there too. If you want to go for a ride and check it out, I'll PM next time I bring the truck to work (SJ).

Truck looks great. I've been looking into HID retrofits lately and I really like how yours maintains the factory look

Installed a PLX boost gauge.

I took the gauge mounting bracket apart and attached it directly through the top of the steering column cover. Added a peice of felt behind it to keep it from rubbing when I raise and lower the steering wheel.
