I'm sure there is something else that I missed. So on to the pictures. If you would like to see a more detailed picture or have questions about something above, feel free to ask.

As it sits today.











A couple days after I bought it.

Rims, tires, spacers, and grillcraft.



Elite front, 4" lights, LF 240's, and winch.

I got my rear lights installed today and my headlights came in also. I'm just waiting on the TRS group buy list to fill up so I can order my projectors.

Awesome looking truck! If you had gotten wheels with 4" backspacing would you have needed the spacers? Any rubbing so far?

Thanks. Honestly, I don't really know. I've heard that this style rim hits the brake caliper. And as far as tire rub, I get a lot at full flex. In this pic, the front and rear tires were stuffed so hard that the truck didn't want to move, but I just powered through and luckily didn't tear anything up/off lol.

I just ordered CBI bolt-on sliders. Hopefully they will be in before our next wheeling trip. Also, I added new pics to the OP.

I got a couple of small things in the mail today and I also placed my order for the retrofits.

My neoprene cover for my hi-lift.



And deflators. No more messing around with valve stems. It took a little while to get them set just right but it will make it so much easier out on the trail. Now I need to start collecting parts for my OBA. As far as compressors, I think I'm just going to get either a pair of superflow mv50's or one mv90. I haven't made up my mind yet.

So it has been pouring rain here for the last day or two and since hunting season is finally over I figured I would take this opportunity to have a little fun. I took a ride on the powerlines behind my house and almost buried my truck in a hole I had to winch out of once before. But this time I wasn't going to let it get the best of me so I put the hammer down and worked my way out. Here is the pictures of the aftermath.

My retrofit's should be here tomorrow, so I decided to go ahead and pull apart my housings. I can't wait to get them installed.



I think I'm going to paint the housings and shrouds black. Like the one pictured below. This picture is from sander1036's thread.

I ordered them from theretrofitsource.com through a group buy.

Mine came in today and I got a little done on them. I painted the housings yesterday. I painted the shrouds and installed the projectors today. Tomorrow I'm going to try to get the projectors adjusted straight, get the lens' back on the housings and maybe get them installed on the truck. Here are a couple pics of them so far.
