It looks very professional but why so high as to block the window?

I'd say departure angle..
Nice build very similar to the one i'm building...
even down to the heims for hinge.
I had some spare 3/4-16 that I used
very good job

That makes sense. I forget that not everybody uses theirs as a daily. dvtrooper, Do you have some pics of the whole rig? I see we have the same paint scheme. I'd love to see what my LS looks like all built up.

can you open the left side door?
I had to move mine way to the outside of the bumper so door would open.

The carrier looks great!
Sort of off topic, but why did you do spring under instead on spring over on the SAS?

It was way to tall for my liking, and for me it just handles better on the road. Don

Looks great. Similar to my ideas for when i bob the bed on my truck. Are you going to cap the ends of the upper horizontal tube? Good looking rig by the way! :)

Is that something laying on top of your hood next to your right arm or did you cut some kind of vent there?

Yes there is a hood scoop to let out the heat for the 4.3 and i have a little vent to let more air in directed at the air cleaner. And thats my son in the picture.

Oh yah i love the square headlights. Don
