Marc's 01 ext cab

Bought the Taco when I moved to Kentucky. Here is the panty dropper near stock... OME 881 and toytec AAL



Got a job at Good Year shortly after putting the lift on. Used my employee discount to buy some wrangler duratracs in 285X75.



Picked up a pretty decent 110v Lincoln mig/flux core welder. First project was a bed bar.




Started getting back into wheeling so I decided to start getting some armor together. Bought a trail gear low pro bumper and put a stinger on it along with 2 IPF offroad lights.





To bring you all up to the present, I really wanted bolt on sliders in case i ever decided to sell the truck or wanted to take the sliders off for some reason. I couldn't stomach the $400+ for a set of bolt-ons though. Long story short: CBI bolt on slider brackets + trail gear weld together sliders = $240 dollar bolt-ons...

Looks great.

I too love reading other builds considering I'm mechanically retarded

As for bolt on sliders, my buddy who is a welder says bolt on is the way to go, because no matter how good your welds are, they all eventually tend to crack a little.

And before anyone starts ripping on his work, he did all the fabrication for Mike Shannahan's house in Denver. He's a top notch welder.

I have also heard that bolt-on is as good or better than weld on because the load produced by a hit is spread over a greater surface area of the frame than on weld-on sliders

Add this truck to the list of "TW members trucks I've been in"

Both you and Brandon, your trucks have changed so much much in a few months, they look awesome.
