Not familiar with the folks you asked about. There is an outfit here in Tx that has a good reputation with HDT. 2L Custom Trucks in Poolville, Tx. I do not work for them nor do I have any other affiliation with them.

Thanks for the information. Jack Mayer has told me the same thing! I have since decided to get in contact with 2L when I'm ready to dive in to the HDT world.............

The "aces" of HDT renovation & rebuild... check Jack's project on the SKP forum for HDT.

Larry Herrin (also, in TX) does outstanding bed & DROM work -- he's SE of Dallas, opposite side from 2L's shop. IF you can locate Phil Carpenter (and view his rig, that's the way I'd go); not taking away from Wayland, his shop is more of a turn-key (spell that with $$$), and there are many satisfied customers here (and on SKP forum). Phil has nearby contacts for the HDT renovation/preparation work you'd want to do before adding the bed (ie, single-out, replace shocks, bags, airlines before covering them over with a bed).

Greg Shields (in OP) at RV Haulers in Canada does amazing work, did the reno. work for Jack; he's probably gonna start doing some smart beds (like the "big yellow truck"?)... which will make him more like a one-stop-shop.
