Grant Kustoms Smooth Square Body Roll Pan

One of the most popular full-size trucks to build these days is the 1973-87 Chevy C-10. They look great planted on the ground and rolling on big inch wheels and rubber. However, if you are aiming to build one with a bevy of body modifications, one of the first areas to look at is the back of the truck. These trucks have a bumper relief under the taillight that allows room for the rear bumper to hug the body and wrap around to the bedside. When you remove the bumper and add a roll pan this factory body pocket sticks out like a sore thumb.

The metal pros at Grant Kustoms came up with a solution for this factory metal void with its three-piece 18-gauge steel constructed roll pan complete with corner fillers to eliminate the factory body line dip. In our quest for optimum smoothness and killer looks we picked up one of the Grant Kustoms pans and got to work. This install requires welding, grinding and bodywork, so if you are not skilled in these areas, we recommend that a professional fabricator or body man handle the job for you. Check out this smooth C-10 body option from Grant Kustoms.
