I sepent (6) months working on it, my son and I did 90% of the work, we subbed out the frame / rocker / "B" pillar / and driver side door alignment.

Pics of the finished product;


It went back on the road in 2008, it is my daily driver and will pull our 34RL Work & Play to the races. In the (4) years I have been driving it I have become very familiar with the LB7 Dmax. I did replace the injectors (1) time, other than the occasional wheel bearing, it is a bullet proof truck.
It has over 300,000 miles on it now, and I have no plans to replace it.
You guys did a great job!

Nice combo for sure.

Thanks. I haven't changed anything on the truck. It was sold to me as a 2007 and to be honest, I haven't looked at the documentation since buying it last year. I'm not home right now but I'll take a good look when we are back. It is a Canadian truck but I'm guessing it was still built in the US. All I really know is that it towed the 8315BSS and you wouldn't have known it was attached. Having hauled the CC back last weekend from the dealer, I again couldn't tell there was anything hitched up until I looked in the mirrors - which is something I do frequently. It towed the CC at 100kph (~60mph) effortlessly and with no noticeable increase in gas (diesel) mileage.

We are planning on heading to WA, ID and MT this summer for a couple of trips and we are really looking forward to using the trailer.
