Haven't had any complaints yet, two people have actually complimented it, and my one neighbor is a retired driver, so he's quite fond of it, haha.

Here's the first interior pictures since I had the upholstery done! Still some work to do in here, a couple small things for a mechanic to do, and get my headache rack mounted and some fog lights in the holes in the bumper is about all that's left on this project!

Original upholstery in the sleeper. Gonna put speakers in the holes in the ceiling and get a mattress.

Gonna put a stereo where a mechanic put this diamond plate that used to have a gauge in it, also gonna move that toggle switch to a better spot.

I have the panel that goes under the dash, just not sure how it goes in, haha.

I have square bezels to put on the two new gauges.

A slick looking rig there, the headache rack and fog lights are nice touches, stuff like that really sets a truck apart. 8)

Well, we got another sponsor's choice award at the Salt Lake show and I even got to do an interview with BigRigVideos! Chris posted it on the Facebook page, but wasn't on his Youtube channel last time I looked. Had a great time!



Got another show this coming weekend to go to, looking forward to it.
