cab skirts by doors metal added, forward cab mount channels replaced.  bed wheeled over and measurements taken.  wheel base is some where around 136" once I bang back the bow in the front bulkhead of the bed.  3/4 ton Van wheel base is 135" so should work out mint.

box fit up and down a few times.

ended up cheating the rear axle back 1.5" with some new leaf spring perch center bolt holes to fit the wheel wells better.  looking mint

needs box mount, side steps mountedm rear bumper and hitch, interior bits, doors on, glasss.

exhaust sounds mint.  lot drives.

4 tires soaped and leaky valve stems replaced, so 3.5 flat tires should be a think of past now.

stared at a bed mount plan and rear bumper.  just need to execute.
