Hey guys, thanks for visiting.
Here's how it sits currently.
All of the design and metalwork I did myself. Thanks to the people that told me how to do it right.

Here's where it started. I bought it in Dec 2010. Here's a pic, stock as you can get, except the plasti-derped grill and bumpers.
Then, like any good boy, I put in a revtek spacer lift.
And built myself a rear plate bumper in the summer of 2011.
And I drove that around until I joined TW and saw some LT trucks on here.
May 2012 I made an order to Baja North Motorsports for some goodies.
And started tearing things down.
Right down to the frame.
Lots of rust in the rear C-channel.
So I sandblasted it and started welding. Gussets, crossmembers and then some gussets.
Cam tab gussets.
Rear outside plate.
Boxed rear frame and crossmembers.
Painted the frame.
My fuel tank was rusted to a flaky blob around the plates, and attempts to clean it resulted in chunks coming off.
So I decided a new stock tank was too expensive for just a stock tank, and used tanks in my area would have the same issues as mine.
So I ordered a 22 gal. Fuelsafe cell.
Meanwhile, things progressed on the truck. Got the engine and cab back on.
How much the wheel sticks out over stock.
Somewhere in here I did a projector retrofit.
My Giant shackles were hitting the leafs in a weird place.
So I built new beef ones.
Then I chopped up my bed and started fitting a bedcage.
Front and rear bumpers were next.
Attached the fiberglass and that's how it was until May.
Took a trip down to SoCal at the end of April 2013.
Got my rear hydro bumps installed and got a 50T leaf pack.
And thats how it sits
