    Got the bed mounted on the frame (somewhat mounted lol) and took my K20 out for a little drive. I never knew how peaceful and fun crawling was. Finally got my rear driveshaft installed. Had to shorten it, was an inch too long. Now I got 4wd. Performed great. Going to tinker with the suspension to try to get a little more flex up from but I'm happy with it. With the 35t motor it has a good balance of crawl and high speed. Just have to get use to my pistol grip controller. Never used one before. Oh and isn't my rigs new neck chain stylish? Lol[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    After taking my K20 for a drive the other day, I spent the last couple days doing something no one told me about. Cleaning! I have know idea why I decided to take it through the mud knowing I haven't put any inner fenders in it. Well lesson learned. Now the fenders are in.[​IMG]

    You could put a camper shell on the back of the truck and have the sound kit in the camper shell
