    I purchased my truck in 2006 when I was 19yrs old. It had not performance parts just a custom bumper,4.5" glassworks fenders, and SAW 2.0 coilvoers, Deaver 7pack

    Right after I got the truck I started doing little things. intake, catback, throttlebody spacer, tint, stereo.

    Little over a year later I decided to Long Travel the front.

    There were minor things I didnt like about the front end. So I changed those
    P1010206_1a579b5100888b6f4a1a5e3966f614de733a7b48.jpg

    I wanted the rear end done but knew I needed fiberglass.

    Then I wanted to go faster and I got laid off from work so I decided to long travel the back of my truck.

    First shock mount setup was a total fail on my part since I had no clue on what I was doing. A buddy of mine helped me out. Best he could since I was on a budget.

    I hated the way the truck looked in primer black. SO I painted it.0204001716-1_ef3727482d157d3586cf9edd59a768c225f1abee.jpg

    With not being happy with out things turned out in the rearend I am slowly finishing/changing things.

    That is how she sits as of now. With the lack of money. I have some really big plans brewing in my head. Just need to get some things under control first.

    Originally its 4 bolts and 2 nuts that have a coming down from the bed into the frame. You will have to disconnect the gas filler cause its somewhat attached to the bed. other then that. then 2 or 3 people just lift it off

    Thanks.

    When I bought the truck it had 4.5" glassworks. I upgraded to 6.5" up front about a year ago. The 3years I had them on no issues. My Passenger side bedside is a different story. Its got spider cracks like CRAZY. But I cant complain knowing what the bedside when though before I installed it. It was on a buddies race truck that rolled at high speeds it was the only fender on his truck that didnt have a ton of damage. he sold it to me super cheap and then ordered me a new driver side bedside. I dont know how long he had it on his truck for im guessing a few years before I put it on my truck.

    Thanks, Paint looked pretty good figuring it was done in the garage. But i used cheap paint and it didnt hold up for crap. Pretty much faded and lost its shine already. Iv waxed and polished it a couple of times still didnt help.

    Plan right now is to get it caged then paint. I don't see the point in painting then cutting up the body to run tubes though it. Then have to come back and touch up or repaint. So for now I plan to just leave it.
