problem is ,, it destroys the OEM engineered crumple zones that saves lives

ever notice the the dents and waves molded into the hood and fender supports ,, not to mention other areas ,, all designed to fold upon impact and not go through the windshield and cut your head off

so thats Why OEM does not do it ,, but I like the idea ,, I think there is a kit out there

for best results ud have to leave a section of fender attached to the truck in front of the doors. when i did it to my dads 55 (as stated above) we fiber glassed in a skeleton of 1035 DOM just in case. prob not as safe as OEM but dang it your motor is cake to work on
