Freakin thing looks awsome.The FLT bed makes it "one of a kind"...till someone decides to copy it..



Badger,although it looks awsome with its flt blk paint job.dont you think it looks to flat?..I mean,once all together,the bed wont stand out as much

How about adding some color to the cab and matching the Bead rings? maybe a nice flt red or orange?

if your gonna try that you might as well rainbow stripe it.

Keep it flat black.

When are we going to see this finished???? That bed looks absolutely stunning, fantastic work.

I think if you go black on the frame and axles you may want to brighten up the shell - how about primer grey instead??

I'm With Harley On This One. It Looks Bada$$ Flat Black. Besides The Diamond Plate Will Definately Make The Bed Stand Out.

yeah if people dont notice it with the diamond plate, they're legally blind in both eyes. I'd say stick with the flat black.

Well it's finally completed. I still want to add some scale touches like a gas can, cb antenna, high lift...

I did not take any pictures of it before I took it out on the rocks. SlinkySam got a couple poser shots before hit the rocks with his nice camera though.

It performed awsome on the rocks as usuall.











Here's a flex shot.

Thanks dude. My personal touches were the easy part though. The true craftsmanship is the work you did.

Here are some shots before it was beat on the rocks. Thanks to SlinkySam for taking these! I loved the clean look of the flat black!

I was thinking about mounting the bumper dumper on the front, that way when GI Joe has a turtle head popin' out he can dukes of hazard it across the hood and onto the bumper dumper.
