Re: closing in the cab

It's looking good. Those who don't know any different are going to think it's an extreme shortbed Ranger.

Re: closing in the cab

Custom, different, cool he he cool! I want a set-up like a lemo. It would be nice to push a button, roll it up, and lock the kids in the back.

Re: closing in the cab

that and i modified the window rail so that its a 1/8 inch longer so nwo you can take the rear window out by apply a little elbow grease and bedning the seal back. And when tis out it looks like a chop top bronco, untill youg et in close enough to actual see the lwoer part of the cab in the bed.

Re: closing in the cab

That thing is coming along great!
It looks like you used the old gate off the back of the truck to close it in?

Re: closing in the cab

McDerry. You are awsome. You reused the original rear section to attatch to the cab up front. I like your idea. Your hard work is paying off. So do you plan on bobbing the back at all? lol. NORM

Re: closing in the cab

Im not sure if ill bob it even MORE, but its tempting, would be just some quick cutting and re-welding to shorten it a good 6 inches, the main thing that is gutting that thought up is the rear leaf shackles are right at the end of the frame.

Thank you guys for the complements. wasted a few cans of expanding foam to fill the gaps between the sheetmetal quarters and the hatch today. If I could do it differently, i would have taken the c pilla rand the hatch not jsut the hatch and welded it onto the b pillar so i could have the hatch back a few mroe inches to keep the stock seat sin it and be able to flip up the gate and swing up the seats.
