i used to work at a truck acc. shop and when i was there i got a display for a trucksedo(sp) roll up bed cover. its in the pic siting on the rear frame so i am making a box to put the cover on. it will fit perfect from the back of the cab to the back of the frame.

roll cage will go from front to back. 6 point cage in the cab tied to the frame and through the back window to the frame with a x. through the firewall to the frame in the front and a hoop for the rad.

the doors i want to make some hinges like a jeep so i can take them off and on. i seen a grand chrokee with a set of fabed 1/2 doors it looked cool so i think i will try that with a set

and last of all i am lifting it 4" more to get my frame out of the way

heads up on some chromed stacks from a semi nitrous nut. I am not sure how serious you are about making this a real project redneck, but NOTHING says redneck like chromed stacks. Gitter doen i like it so far.

You need to go steal your boss's mufflers off of his Kenworth and add then to your project.
