Smile The Black Beast

Just a little about what keeps me happy. Its a 99 4700 crew cab with DT466E 6+1. Custom air ride cab and rear axle, lowered 5 " with custom built 10 foot bed. Tank and battries moved and custom running boards and stacks (6"). Running bullydog propane, Therminator, and custom built intake with dual 14" K&N filters with a custom boost controller. Full set of gauges to keep an eye on things and hopefully more to come. The interior is all leather and tweed with 3 captians chairs in the back.

Thanks everybody, I do have more pics just need to find them or take more. A good buddy of mine did the bed and he has the molds with a 6 inch higher side also. you can put the fenders any where for any wheelbase. 1/4 fiberglass outside 1/4 rolled steel bed inside. The rear fenders were molded from the front so they match and gives it a factory look. There are five other trucks in the US with the bed on them. Had to cover the cost of the molds some how. Ill see if i can find him and the molds.
