Wow, that body is great!! The inside and outside detail looks good!
How tall is the driver?

You must have some acreage to run on with those sized rigs!

Awesome looking truck! One question though, what's the plan for stability? Looks like it might tip over in a stiff breeze! Lol

the front is higher than the back in the pics. so it will be the same as the back when done.

its quite wide, so i dont think it will just fall over

i can just add alot of weight to the wheels if needed.
