Did you put your new hinges on? I have it on like I was told, but it still seems wrong

tailgate hinges or front door hinges? I have the rear tailgate hinges installed, the front doors will take longer as I am in the middle of moving my house and shop

With a diesel engine and lots of great parts, I wouldn't at all be embarrassed asking 20 or more for it.

Maiden Voyage!

After 3 days of scrambling to finish, I got it close enough to take out on the road.
It runs great, its much peppier, and sounds much meaner ( partially due to the fact that there is no muffler yet)
A lot of loose ends to tie up including the muffler.
Another giant bonus is that it fits in my garage. with 1" to spare.

Looks great. Almost too good. I don't like non NAS trucks to look this good.

I'm going to try it and see how I like it, and how many times I get caught in the rain.

Id suggest to take the roll bars off kinda looks akward, or just take the external cause it has no mounts on the top.
P.S. what's that hole in the crossmember, i've seen it on other ROW trucks whats it for?

The roll bars are connected.and I figure its a bit safer with them on.
If its the same hole I'm thinking its for a trailer plug.

Looks great Tom. Leave the cage on it, it doesn't look awkward, it just looks like a cage, and i'm sure rolling with it is better than rolling without it. Of course, rolling is not advised...

Looks great Tom. I like the white much better than the Rowan Brown. What did you do with your old brown doors ?

Looks Bad Ass. Tom. I have your rear door ready as well. Let me know when you want to stop over. I have to take some final pix of the S/W to post. Its all done except for some final touches on the custom built sliders...
