    thank you ;) i love the tall skinnys but ive been many places where our long wheel bases have been my down fall and an extra inch or 2 in clearence would make all the difference...and im under geared with 33's and all the extra weight from armor and gear the truck dont like big hills and when i build my trailer it wont be happy at all....so im gonna go 4.56's with 35's and the gearing will be alittle taller then stock and ill have the extra height im looking for....dont get me wrong i "love" my tall skinnys :D

    Fair enough ha sounds good to me. If I actually wheeled as much as I wish I did I would go all out, money is no object kind of thing, but it's a practicality thing that holds me back, not the dough. I got the bug early on and had all these plans then reason sat in and I pouted as I realized I have absolutely no need for it all :(.

    As far as wheel base goes I just found this 08 reg cab 5 speed for sale and I have to say, even with my new truck, I am very very tempted. Smaller pay off and less gas cost means more mods/trips, yes?
    Also funny because I just mentioned above that if that white reg cab was an access cab it'd be perfect for me and now I'm debating on this truck. . .

    The weather cooperated with me today and I got some pics. Takes about 10 minutes to setup or take down. I still need to do a thorough cleanup of the canvas and shell.

    I definitely like that you can stand up in the bed of the truck AND have a place to sleep up and out of the way. Way better than being cramped in a tiny little thing. That's awesome man^
