    I used a repop core support for my clip swap too and it fit well.

    Yeah, I assume it’ll need a little bit of adjustment here and there but should be alright. I am going to look for a good set of used OEM fenders, tho. I think I’m now committing myself to this swap before paint so that I can just paint the once and not have to do any repaint after a swap in the future lol

    Yeah, we’re back to 95% or better now thank goodness. I’ve not gotten back into the gym yet but hoping to get back to that this next week. It was pretty sucky there for a couple week or so!!

    It really impresses me that you always have that plate installed for pictures. That's dedication :)

    I run it 100% of the time. In Mo you don’t need a rear plate for 1 Ton trucks and bigger

    Didn’t actually do anything to the dually but I did have both squares out today and reorganized my round eye swap parts for the dually. Still need a hood and hinges and I should be ready to start planning on performing the swap :)
