here she is all stock...



first up was a k&n intake, this was really easy and fun to install and made a huge difference over stock! sounds so much louder.


3/3 revtek lift, blocks in rear and spacers up front. replaced all 4 shocks, front lower ball joints and tie rods while i was in there.
i debated on the lift but i am glad i did it. this is not my ideal lift, in time i will replace with coilovers and leafs.

285/75 bfg muds and pro comp circle windows,


i used the turtle wax product to get the faded flares and mirrors black again.


got clear corners and new headlights from ebay, i could have cleaned up the original headlights but at $40 why not!
painted the grill as well!





I am currently waiting for the apex plate bumper to be back in stock from all pro, as soon as i get that it will go on. also on the list for near future are line-x bed and fender flares, and either some master craft or corbeau seats and a sweet sound system!

what do you guys think??? any suggestions?

yeah i knew i would get shit for the lift, oh well! on a budget since i am doing so much at once on my truck, it looks great, and a pretty good deal if you paint it yourself i think.

ALL PRO apex plate bumper install!!!!

So I finally got the apex plate bumper from all pro!! the bumper just bare is $649 , plus a few hundred for the PIAA lights, I decided to paint it myself instead of the $200 for powder coat from all pro. after shipping and everything it was just barely over $1000.

Install was pretty easy, it says no modification at all on a 2001, yeah right, when I took the front end apart the support behind the bumper was smashed pretty flat on the passenger side, I was not aware of this damage so it was a bit of a surprise. anyways a few of the holes on the bumper did not align properly so I had to ream the wholes out so the bolts would line up. I guess it could be my truck but it could also be the bumper, it was only a few thousandths. Also had to chop off a small piece of frame horn thats in the instructions. PIAA were easy to install as well! No in progress pics sorry! it was late,





after paint, i used a generic automotive trim paint.





this thing is meaaaaan looking!!!


next up is a winch, led light bar, and some wheel spacers.

I think the stance is perfect. Do you have rubbing at full lock or when you stuff the tires?

YESS, I already cant stand the spacers. Soon, very soon, I like to take a lot of time deciding what I want to do exactly before I do it. What would be good for the rear? I want to stay the same height.
