This is the beginning of my build. Just bought the truck February 7th after shopping for months. Stay tuned, this will grow over the next couple of months (or as the bonuses roll in).

It will be a hybrid build - family to fun outdoor events and daily driver. Plan is to go with white body, black accessories and few red highlights. So look cool, be functional off-road and get decent mpg.
