From the old truck, I was able to save the All-Pro Rear, spacer lift, bed-bar, and wheels/tires...

Replaced the temporary 3" Spacer Lift with Bilstein 5100's and 3" Eibach Springs...


Added some All-Pro Wheel Spacers and painted calipers...


Added black headlights and corners...


Tinted my tail lights and then replaced them with eBay lenses...


Added the "Raptor Mod" LED's...


Painted and Installed BAMF LCA skids...



Random pictures from various stages of mods...




I've fabricated a few Tire-Gate style tire carriers for some TW members...

No noticeable sound change, but i think it looks cleaner and it won't get hung up while off-road.

I'm looking into getting a magnaflow for my 2.7 soon, does anyone have experience w/ them?

I was just looking into exhaust stuff myself. Check out this thread CLICKY There's a magnaflow sound clip on the first page. I've used them on V6 stuff in the past and loved the tone, always got asked what muffler it was.

Got my truck back from Line-X last week, and had to remove my bed bar and bed extender for the install. They are now back in the truck and I will get some better pictures of the finished product later.

*updated OP

...also had an HID bulb go out on me today, so I had to switch back to stock in one side while I wait to order a replacement set from DDM. (figured it would take too long to send mine back in for warranty, so I'll prob just buy new ones.)

I'll get some detailed pictures up once I'm out of class.

Mine is the old version of the All-Pro rear wrap and is powder-coated in satin black. I don't like the new design as much...
