Talking SoftShellTaco's 1st Gen build thread!!!!!(pics inside)

My intro thread has a bunch of these pics but I figured I'd start a no ish build thread being I am building this truck more than I had planned......lol So far I have just installed a Fabtech 3" front spindle lift with 1.5" strut spacer and 2" rear shackle lift with black 15x8" 0mm offset Pacer Soft 8's and 30x9.50" BFG KOs and other small things here and there that you will notice in the pictures.

The day I bought it

after the mods





Decided to black out the truck a lil bit and sold my old camper shell to purchase this one....yes it will be painted white to match the truck. I will also be building a grid type bed storage/box spring setup so I can put in a mattress and have storage.....I will post pictures of the progress once I start building it. How it currently sits.




Did the running/turn signal DIY upgrade. This is how the lights look at night.




Got some weld-in beadlocks


Topper was paint matched.


DIY Satoshi Grille Mod


All-Pro front bumper installed......so badass!!!!


Added some 6" PIAA halogens today....I will run HIDs in them later.



And that is pretty much how she sits as of now, definitely a change from her humble beginnings.
