Well its time to make some changes to the Taco. I decided to rip off the Bed to get some ideas on what i want to do. Some off the ideas were to just flatdeck it, custom box the list goes on. Took a closer look at the box.... i decided to take the box apart & see if the centre composite section would work on its own & it does. So the plan now is too shorten the frame back to the leafs, shorten the box, ditch the Bumper thats there now & build a tube frame around the composite box. Here is some pics of how it looks now.

Cut the frame back to the shackle hangers and then make new mounts for the bumper and fix the bed to that and tube around, then front Exo,

Keep the taco look. Tube the back and use the sides and dovetail them in.
