Well I don't want to be a wet blanket, but why are you going the chop route? A chop only looks right on a very select number of cars, and for mine (my opinion, this is!) the EK ute ain't one of them. There's so few of them on the road a stock bodied EK is going to stand out in the crowd on its own merits. Purely my thoughts, and not any sort of poop-slinging on your plans. More power to you!

Cheers, Matt

Yeah i know what you mean, i had a mate that had a chopped ek ute many years ago, and did a great job and looked tough, was only looking to take a few inches out of it. Now youve got me questioning myself. See what the new year brings.

You could always RAISE the roof. That would look different.
