my "build" thread

OK so my truck is already "built" but after deciding to keep it and fix it now that I got a pretty good paying job. I thought I would make this to show the progress over the next year. starting tomorrow.

the laundry list:
-fix all electrical and mechanical issues
-front/rear armor
-shell
-roof rack
-35inch tires
-new rims
-new/better sound system
-better amps
-some minor interior changes
-drop the lift to the 6 inch fabtech
-maybe retro fit (haven't decided yet)


^thats most of it. tomorrow I'm taking it to a shop to get the speedometer and all the small electrical issues fixed because I got tired of wasting hours upon hours trying to figure it out myself and coming up short.

Looks like a beast with those 38's, but 35's and a new lift should be more practical

I bet it's a beast in 4x4 Lo with all that ground clearance. You should take it to Uwharrie sometime.
