So this is going to be a very in depth build thread of my truck. I haven't done much yet because I just got the truck but and I am on a tight budget. I will be using this to track all my progress of the truck to make sure I don't forget anything.
Got the truck on 12/31/11. Good way to start the new year. New year new truck.

1/7/12 - While taking the picture (Above^^)of the truck with the new tires I decided that the mud flaps had to go. I may put the rear ones back on to preserve my paint and clear coat
The new Firestones looked a lot better than those old firestone Destinations drag slicks.
1/21/12- Then I did the grey wire mod. Love it already
1/28/12- Then I did the “Remove the topper” mod. Not really a fan unless I’m going camping.
Then I did the “Stop the dash from making noise” MOD
My Favorite Pic.
Took the taco out four wheeling and was suprised how well the taco performed. But then this happened.

But that didnt last long.
Replaced the battery with a hole in the side
