“My truck is bodied 2¼ inches, has a 4Runner conversion with billet inserts, has been converted to RHD, and the interior is almost done and ready to debut next year in April, at Lay’d Out At The Park. The bed has been smoothed and tubbed with a custom bridge that’s color matched. Just thought I’d write in and share since I’ve always loved MT! I hope to have a truck worthy of gracing the pages one day!”

“Hey guys, just wanted to show you my truck. It’s bodydropped on 18x7-inch Neeper Haaz wheels, the interior is all fiberglass, blue and dark gray tweed with leather and suede blue and dark gray seats. There’s a custom sheetmetal bed covering the air-ride, mud flaps girls for taillights. The doors are shaved with poppers, the gas door has been shaved, and there’s a gas cap on top of the sheetmetal bed, which has been smoothed and radiused.”

“My Ranger lays out on 22’s. I’m running 2600s all around with a two-link in the rear and modified DJM arms up front with a 3-inch Z. Shaved items include the door handles, handles, antenna, third brake light, badges, roll pan. It’s fully tubbed and bedlined black on the inside of the bed along with stock stake downs replaced by bottle openers (my favorite part of the truck, lol) and painted tangerine pearl on the exterior. Up front it has an ’03 Edge hood and bumper with billet inserts on the bumper and grille.”
