Grande's Build Thread

So I figured its time I made one, still have a long way to travel b4 i can call it done, if its even possible to ever feel like its really "done".
Oh and most all of my pics and videos are from my camera phone



Most recent pic
Rowher Flats run May 14 2011



First Mod was painting all of my stock badges.

Also did the BGSM (Black Grille Surround Mod )

Then came the billies and threw on some fresh rubber

The world famous BHLM

Added color to my wheels.
Sun & heat protection shield as well, 5% all around

Used a bedliner spray can on lower valence, same stuff i used to top off my grille and wheels.

Then bought a set of black housing LED tail lights, for some reason the OEM tail lights dont like to stay on when u bottom out ur rear bumper on a trail

Then removed my dent i had for months myself. After that kicked my truck.

AFTER


Then i chopped my cab to turn it into a sigle cab ......

.............JK!!!

Rear bumper is still damaged from the trail, getting a new one soon, will post and update when i do.
Or if i do sumthin else B4 the rear bumper too

Peace Out!

Clean looking truck! I still like the black and blue contrast.

Any more plans? Sound system, interior, armor?

Looks good. Did you remove the bumper to spray on the bedliner? or Did you do it on the truck?

thanks man, mine are set at .85, ride is good, wasnt much difference, it is slightly still higher in the rear, i was gona take them off and set them on 1.75, but i think the stock springs might not like it and make it ride different, then i was gona get eibach springs, but i just realize i should just save for coilovers, atleast for my case

but they ride good at .85, plus i got taller tires at the same time so it was noticeable when u get in



Nice bed bar, those are nice
