Nice looking rigs. Thanks for the tips on wiring too. The dealer/shop I use install many FB's, have a good crew and have always done good jobs on other trucks I had in the past. Mine should be ready Monday, I just kept adding "must haves" to it. My only potential complaint is the narrow tool box's I am having to use vs the box's I had on dually's in the past. We will see how that works out. They were wiring up the load lights I had added in the headache rack and mounted in the bed on the rear and prepping for paint. Looks like they were doing it right with solder and heat shrink.

I built this bed before my daughter was born and she's almost 17 now. I should have kept that truck, but a buddy of mine still has it.

Here is a project I did for my oldest Son that went into the Army. While he was in boot camp we redid his truck. He laid it over after a long night of partying and 4 wheeling on a ranch prior to joining the Army. The cab was bent but with the help of a good friend, we got it straightened up and looking good. My youngest son and I pulled this old flatbed off a F250 I had and mounted it on his Dodge. We did not have access to lifts or FEL's at the time. Used old style camper jacks, cinder blocks and profanity :)

The Chevy was too cheap to pass up. Wheels are XD someting or others. Tires are Fierce Attitude, now made by Good Year. We get lot's of miles out of them, and plenty of our driving is on gravel. I'm not real big on the custom wheel bit, but I do prefer aluminum over steel, given our winters. I'll admit, it did make the truck look better. The boss is a little upset about tearing up another one that's clean and smells good, but I reckon she'll still love me once she gets over it. lol
