So what did you do to get the rockers looking so good?

Did you ever find the problem with the steering not returning to center?

Still looks awesome!

Two points: Not sure if we went over this already but your tailgate hinges are upside down.

Also, your hood prop catch is sideways and should be rotated to the top. It's at the 3 o'clock position and should be at 12 o'clock. I would hate for that rod to slip out and damage something when the hood comes crashing down.

Guns don't kill people... Bad trail spotters do.
