Pre runner fenders being fitted up. You can notice the 4" of flare pretty easily
Side view of Pre runner fenders here you can notice the 2" of rise from this angle.

All the doors have been cut open and gutted
The floor board, firewall, and rear of cab have been gutted
Cleaning up the interior were the floor was removed and filling any holes.
The Dodge quad cab body fits on better then anticipated
Notice the Detail that Dan puts into even the smallest items, such as the gussets to support the plastic valance the craftsmanship is great.
With the pre runner fenders and Ram Air hood, BBD II is coming back with some attitude : )
BBD II is getting a new wieght box as well
We got four pieces off of the bed, the two side skins
The tailgate skin, and the top of the front panel.
Here is what's left of the bed.
Since this a quad cab the bed has to be shortened by 5" to match up with wheel base
The front lip of the bed skins being tig welded back on the shortened skin.
