Agreed, I am a big fan of custom work as well.

Good ideas for the air dam. I'll keep that in mind when the time comes.

Careful of water inflation at bed cap joint /stake pockets at speed .
I'll be able to comment about the square dual step at the edge of the bed soon. As I think that it causes turbulence on my cap. Maybe router the corners down to an angle or at least radi. them.maby even convex.
Thanks. What do you mean by water inflation? I am planning on smoothing out the square steps on the bed rails. It doesn't seem like they would cause too much trouble though as they are parallel with the air flow.
