    That was the white one, right? I read about it when I was researching pre-purchase.

    I don't believe that the seller of this truck ever posted it on a forum. They also hired a shop to do the swap years ago.

    I have one of those trailer tongue tool box bolted down on my bed. I’ve never seen any other truck with one so I’d say it’s pretty unique:cool:

    I built this wedge top camper on my truck. Pretty sure it’s the only one exactly like it. I don’t think there are a lot of 1st gen flat bed campers.

    I always imagine someone rear ending a truck with a hook like this, When they go to pull the 2 cars apart the car in the back would end up with its engine ripped out while the other would have a slightly dinged rear bumper lol.

    I like the black with the louvers. Looks great!
    Do you think they have a cooling effect?

    There's a bunch in my build thread. It's the "B" in Build Thread in my signature.

    Seemed to help with temps after I did it. If I were to do it again, I would have moved the louvers in about 1.5 inch. That would put the louvers at a spot that would be less covered by the hood support structure.

    Makes sense.
    I have a supercharger awaiting rebuild. As you may know heat is a big issue with those. Louvers might be a good idea. The SC is still a ways off...got plenty of time.

    Eventually I plan on doing an SC that's part of the reason I did the louvers.
