    Just curious as to why you'd want to go to a lot of trouble to make your truck have less headroom and cargo space, and lower its resale value.

    When he said "chopped", I thought he meant like a '49 Merc with the roof lowered 8".

    Not A 60.

    Not a 60.... I WISH but an Idea of how a chop can be done. and Done WELL

    My Truck.
    Outside

    Inside
    [​IMG]

    Random Action Shot (Haven't finished the rear tube bumper yet)
    [​IMG]

    The Checker plate channel is so strong that I can JUMP on it (Im 210Lbs) I thought at first I'd need a roll Bar, But when it was finsihed NOPE.

    The Checker Plate was done in 3 pieces, Sides (Inside, Ouutside) and Top, everything was traced out on cardboard first, transfered to Steel and welded together. than tacked to the body.

    complete details on my site. www.mudrunner.ca

    Just wanted to show that chop jobs can look very professional when done

    Also I had a custom Soft top made for the Winter and Rain
