That is looking good. I always wonder what makes someone cut into a ride like that, but it usually turns out decent and always here about improved performance from the weight savings. I should work on that for me. Razz

i have seriously lost 300+ pounds. the carpet,headliner,interior trim and all sound deadener is gone. and the lack of some metal really helps. it is actually higher in the back now by about 2".

Pulling off a tailgate and toolbox will set you apart from most chops.
