For those interested, here is a look at the New Boss. Shortened bed, beefed up frame and some resin 4x4 parts...

Wheels found on ebay. And thought I would do something about that ugly windshield height!

The wheels neede to measure .750 ti fit. I was having trouble finding any that size, then stumbled across these. Fit is perfect.

This is awesome! I want to do this with the Moebius '69 F-100 when it comes out. I love the look. Are those 48" tires?

Nicely done, James. That's a HUGE improvement.

 

How does the top edge of the windshield "glass" look now with a little bit more exposed?
