Very nice truck Rob!<br><br> I bet somebody here could probably help you bolt that bed down so it wouldn't keep popping up like that ;D

Re:DTR's Truck of the Month June 03

Thanks for the nice comments guys!<br><br><br>Jamie, I used a ball-n-socket type fittings, only one conection under the bed, the stacks are T'd off inside the bed, and both do work. When I get fuel, or am at the car wash, I have to raise the bed, and as one would expect, most people think they are &quot;fake&quot;, but when I leave, they know they are not. LOL<br><br><br>Later, Rob

Rob....Real Nice truck...It shows what a guy can do that Mopar can't!! I have a question, for you , I see you have a lift and you post a 3&quot;?? I have a 2&quot; leveling kit in the front, and barely have I mean 1/32&quot; of clearance running 315/75/16's on after-market 16x8 rims, because of the off-set in the rims...I need , 3&quot;'s like you for clearance. Was that lift an aftermarket, if so pls let me know, or, did you increase the spacer on the 2&quot; leveling kit, and same in the back??? I am jealious you know of your truck, and need advise.. :'( :'(<br><br>Thanks, Steve
