WHOA! Too much red! Just looking at it is making me angry!

Coming along nicely. Looking great!

You definitely need a bender. I bet that hoop behind the cab took forever. Looks good though.

mine will do 3/8 pretty good still have some clean up to do on the stuff. but i'm still learning with the thing. it was about 1600.00. i love it. make things much faster and less of a mess in the shop with that being said most of the stuff that i have built you could do with a chop saw, grinder and cut off wheel.

****nit Kieth! You are doing all this fantastic work to your truck and your going to keep a basic square tube bumper on the rear?! You should put some design into that thing. By the way you look goofy as hell in that last picture! LOL!

I have lost focus on my rig for the time being but once I get back from hunting this weekend I will be back on it. I got my rotors last night. I will have to do some re drilling.
Tomorrow I am having a BBQ. Come on over around 6-7pm. I went and bought a bunch of steaks and some salads. Grab a side dish.

and now for some cool stuff. this is just about max flex. was starting to lift the rear tires of the skid steer but the rear tires of the ranger were still both on the ground. will have to limit it some to save the frount driveline though

I don't think I can even imagine what that thing would do with the rear linked.
You need to post a good side shot of the entire truck with the new bed. You don't have one in the entire thread yet.

Thumbs up Re: suburban/ranger what i have done and what i am doing

effffin sweet keith. you might look into protecting those hyd hoses for your steering so they dont get ripped off or screwed up if you drove into a pile of anything. looks awesome tho. i wish my truck flexed that well.
