Re: New thread for a new bed!

I thought that the Racerunner shocks were for the Willy's. If they were always for the crew cab that means that you have been thinking this thing up for a long while.

Re: New thread for a new bed!

Hey Willy, do you still have your tailgate? The truck slipped off the highlift in the snow the other day. The top of the jack took out the handle and bezel thingy on my tail gate. I can see that you no longer have use for a tail gate any more so I thought that I'd ask.
