so what's the plan?

Plan is to clos'm up with some sheet metal. Build some sliders with some
tubes to protect the rear qrtr's and tail lights. Sliders will be fab'd from 6" sch.40 pipe cut in half lengthwise capped with 1/4" plate should be plenty stout. 1 1/2"
sch.40 legs weld to the frame, 1 1/2 tube bent for qrtr. panel protection I got it all in my head. More pics to come.

Now... DOVING it... YES!

By a little, I mean to the rear tires and YES that would serve a purpose :)

Making Progress I work on it when I can and slowly at that. Finished welds, grinding, flap disk Slider Bodies. Shade Tree body work. Next step will be a little body filler on the quarter panels, little sanding and prepping for bed-liner on the lower contour of the truck.:beer:

Potential line for bed liner. Any recommendations on which brand to use?

I used Herculiner on mine and it worked fine on the sides. It will fade over time if its in a lot of sunlight every day. It was pretty cheap compared to a lot of other options

Kinda pricey but I'm leaning towards "Monstaliner" I like the finish and how the texture looks.
