I usually don't hold too strong an opinion one way or another but on this build the width of the "bed" really detracts from the flow of the body. If the rear was wide enough to cover the rear tires and was more aligned with the cab then the truck wouldn't be quite so ugly. If you are going to put a box on the back like a RPU then do it, but don't put a body section that is designed with rear fenders and then squeeze it down between the tires.

If you are referring to the op I totally agree . But in my mind a small motorcycle style rear fender widened to fit the tire and contoured to fit the body side would keep with the overall direction of the truck without distracting from the work already done . Just me waking up at 3am with my mind working ..lol

Fab work? Yank off the fenders and inner fenders, take a sawzall to the grille and cut the headlights off, and there you go.

If you know how to sawzall that suspension into place, I will eat my own socks.
