I applied rock it bed liner on bottom of bed in black. I guess I didn’t take photos before taping off.
Painted white on bed and gray rock-it liner in bed.

Found a stock roll bar just 20 miles away by calling a ad in trader it just said roll bar $85 when I went to look at it someone cut center out and widened to fit a ford so I gave him $65 for it and made a new center section!

The seats are out of 97 or so Chevy full size suburban with no seat belts in back they have inside arm rests and center seat out of pickup.the driver seat almost bolted right in the passenger I had to cut the front left corner of seat base and add a plate to line up with the bolt on hump.they fit in real nice but sit little high but I like that cause makes it feel like your in a higher truck! I reupholstered in grey and black leather. Will have photos soon. Got them at local wrecking yard for $90 bucks
