I don't know if I like the chrome grill or not, mine is "all" black.
The only chrome is the wheels and pipes.
I have been thinking about a set of side pipes but not sure how
they would look.
Your running boards look good, did you make them?
Your exhaust look different as in sharp, what did you do about
the holes in the rear where the pipes use to be.
That baby has a shine!!!!!!!!!!
Did you ulta-fine it and re clear coat?
Fine looking "R" Truck
Hi Ken, I have my paint and body work done at:Ken Thurm said:I want to thank all of you for the nice comments. I know some of these changes are not for everyone, but thats what makes it fun to do. Maybe it will give you a new idea for your car. I would be willing to bet that there are very few completely stock SSR'S out there. If you have a local street rod shop that doese sheet metal fabrication they can make you a grille, it just has to be good quality wokmanship, you can't skip on the quality if you expect it to come out good.
Some of this stuff is just luck in who you know. One of my long time friends is the owner of So. Cal. Speed Shop Pete Chapporis I made the lowering kits for both of there cars for the S.E.M.A. show. he had a extra set of running boards and rear bumper, so he gave them to me. There are only 3 sets of them that I know of.
The side exhaust I made because I just didn't want it to come out of the rear of the car/truck.
I am going to do two more pretty radical things to her, then I think I will be done unless Lloger shares his painter with me!
Thanks again to all that like her,

Yeah, I saw this truck at the Irwindale event. He has the roll pan in back and the fat pipes jutting out from underneath.crazyrtr53 said::agree Saw Ken's baby in person yesterday on our ride, this truck is awesome :thumbs
