    Full sides or half sides???

    Should I put up full sides or half sides. The new bedsides hide nearly everything. Only the top 16 inches are seen from over the bed sides back to just past the fuel cap. But I also want to protect the area where the radiator goes from debris.

    If most of it is cover by the bedsides I would say half sides also.

    I like the look of the half sides, but function over form I think the full sides are better. They cover more for more protection, but I don't see much to protect after the half sides but the spare tire. What needs protection besides the radiator? Did find a location for your ice chest aka ac system?

    The cool seats are on the back burner for the moment. As for protection it's from mud and boulders. I can't tell you how many times I have gotten out of a car after a race and there is a pile of rocks about the size of a computer mouse in your lap and down the back of your nomex. I will problem enclose the underside of the rear cage. It's amazing how much crap flies in the air. There have been times you see a LARGE rock come down the hood, and you try to catch it or block it from smacking you in the chest.

    I think I found a place that can make the molds fairly cheep. They would use a chop gun to make it.

    Done...

    Sides are built and bolted, now they need to be finished. I did shorten them up by 10 inches off the back.
