That overhang makes the wheelbase managable, and with the rise in the back probably not a issue. Although you loose storage space.
I can not understand why anyone would want SS lower panels when the whole thing is not SS. The trim around the back wheels is black, and the tank covers on the truck are black. It just does not look right. That rig would look 100% better if they got rid of the SS
