Me and my buddy decided to throw a snorkle on it with in a week of me having it so i could take it out swimming.

video my friend edited from that weekend, nothing to exciting but hey i wasnt filming
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNSlw0vqiy4

then about 2 weeks later i found out the carpet was still wet from that weekend so had to rip everything out and undercoated the floor of the cab.



moved up to Gainesville and found some stuff to play on



Picked up a tool box from Pepboys, couldnt beat the price and still works perfectly fine to this day


Joined the club!






Picked up some 31x10.50 wranglers after i found out that the tires on the truck were 7 years old



I hate people who take up 2 spots


The goodies have started to show up! All-Pro 3" leafs



Sway-a-Way 2.0s 650# coils


The collection is growing


Installed


EBC Front brake setup


Out with the old in with the new



Leafs and extended SS brake line

After the lift, still havent cranked up the C/Os yet

I forgot the name but it was the more expensive stuff from advanced auto. $13 a can. But I resprayed over everything with rustoliem pro grade because the bed rails were chipped real bad and the rockers were fading. I resprayed like 6 months ago and it's still black and nothing has chipped

I will have to check things out next time I'm in town. I sprayed flex seal on mine (oops) and it's made with tire rubber so it faded also, but I'd like to spray over it with a decent liner then I may paint over with Rustoleum. Thanks for the quick response.

It's not just the passengers side... They went all the way around over both tail lights across the tailgate and all the way up to the drivers door.

Thanks. I want to put the rings back on but when ever I go in the mud they get so clogged up with mud that I have to scrape them out just to drive home.
