I don't have the dies to bend the size toob I want. But when I do get them, it will look like that, but with bed sides

I like the way the box is, just add some kind of light bar to it.

Are the bed sides shorter than the frame? I think it would look better if the sides were longer.
...or just do the tube bed like the above pic which I love.

Yes and no.....it is pinched in the rear about 10" a side and makes it shorter. I am going to add tube back there for the light mounts, should help it out.

Drive shaft installed and tested. Binds at about 1" before full droop. Need some shorter limit straps, I have 18" now, need some 16" ones.

Also pulled the air shocks to add a little more nitro, it was sitting a bit low.

do you have a center limit strap or just outers? i dont think you will ever need to have it drooped on both sides...limit the center.

I have 3, left right center. But even with the center limited, I could stuff the passenger side and get full droop on the drivers. Knowing it will bind the drive shaft if I do droop all the way, I would rather be safe then sorry.
