    My first build was my 03 single cab ram widebody
    Bagged body droped
    The second was my brothers 05 f150 crew cab wide body on 30s
    His style was a bit on the "donk" side but that's wat
    U get when u play with those size wheels.

    I like the body work, especially the exhaust exit (got anymore pics of the exhaust work). but I'm not feeling the huge wheels, to big for my taste.

    Bad ass!You'll get alot of hate on the wheels here,man.Don't sweat it. I like the look,it may not be as functional as 18's or 19's and not for everyone who likes their stock 14's or 15's,but car sits perfect, I was going for similar look on my 69 Firebird, but got a deal on a set of BBS 18x13 and 18x14.5,so I will be doing a crazy widebody

    I'm VERY interested to see how you widened the 1/4 panels/wheel well openings, as I'm working on a '70 Buick GS, trying to figure out the same thing, of what the best contour will be for this type of body.

    Is that sidepipes exit built in to the rockers, just ahead of the rear wheels?

    Gsx
    Slicin' n dicin'
    I'll post up some pics of how we cut the panel off and re-routed some body lines.
    We opened the wheel well from front n rear
    Yes those are side openings for the exhaust
    Gsx your panels are very similar to mine the only
    Difference is that crease similar to what
    I have to deal with on my 71 camaro rs I just got

    I guess I'd like to know what the purpose of the car is before I can comment. If you are trying to win the "bigger is better" contest, then you have succeeded. If you have other, more performance oriented goals, I can't say that you've hit the mark.

    Im building this car for my pops
    As soon as I'm done I'm goin yo hand over the keys to him.
    He doesn't exactly know what is being done to it
    Other that it Is missing from our barn.
    Its just a car that I want my pops to feel "Chingon" (bad ass)
    When he's givin moms a ride down the PCH or to Santa Barbra
    A cruiser you'd say
    The complete opposite I will do with my 71 rs
