Truck originally was a SW and previous owner converted to ST with drop down tailgate.

I have the hardtop pieces if I want to go back including a full swing away door.

The tire is in the tub taking up too much space and I want the extra protection of Matt's bumper.

Very nice, and although I only say it with hushed tones...I do miss my ST, nothing really quite like it!

I had to search past threads and remember you selling your ST and saw your incredibly sweet SW. You kept the right one but it must of been a hard decision!

The wait will be worth it for the bumper!

My SW is so much more than the St...but nothing beats driving down the highway at 1 am with the cool morning air...or anytime for that matter. I dont think I'll ever have an ST again but who knows. At least I had it for a little while. It was worth it.

Well I just spoke with Matt at Rockware and the rear swing away is off to be powder coated and I should have it in two weeks! Now I just have to get moving on replacing that cross member.

So tonight I recieved a call from Matt and the rear bumper will be on its way tomorrow! I'll finally be able to get that tire off my rear door!!!! Too bad it will get here while I'm out of town!

When we go to the National this summer I'm going go out the week prior and have him replace the front bumper and weld on the new cross member...

Bill when you get back I might know a couple of guys that would be willing to lend a hand.
