I really like the TG bumper. Im planning on getting one myself and this gives me an idea what it will look like. Are you planning on getting the light hoop?

BAMFTACO 05-27-2012 10:14 PM

Nice truck lookin sweet

Bamahoyt 05-28-2012 08:01 AM

I would like to get the light hoop but its low on the priority list right now since I just found out both my CV boots are completely destroyer.

austinramsay 06-21-2012 11:32 PM

any updates?

Bamahoyt 06-22-2012 09:25 PM

Yup, I got new CV's in and installed them and the realized they gave me the CV's for manual hubs so I had to take them back out but the correct ones will be in tomorrow so I will take some pictures and post them up. Also had a window motor go out on me so I am trying to track one down since advanced wants $80 for one

Bamahoyt 06-22-2012 09:44 PM

Yeah I think they look a little better with the hoop but yours still looks real good. How hard was it to bolt on?

Alex, it came on my truck but I did remove it so I could bend and straighten the bracket cause he had hit something with it and I was able to bolt it up by myself but I was absolutely exhausted after about an hour trying. Would be real easy with 2 people. Here are pictures of my CV axle swap. They were in super bad shape but it is done now and got a lifetime warranty on them from NAPA so time to test them out.

Here is the pass. side and then finished pictures

buzzard1992 06-23-2012 03:03 PM

Oh okay. I apologize man. I thought you bought it and put it on. But yeah I'd probably get a second or third set of hands to help me bolt it up

Paint looks awesome, What did you pay to have the truck painted if you dont mind me asking?

I am having one painted now but was planning on going flat black, now that I have a price worked out with the guy I am wondering if its a good deal

Bamahoyt 11-07-2012 05:43 AM

My paint cost me about $950. Let me know if I can help in any other way
