Bandwagon 05 lt build

How she looks now kida...


[IMG][/IMG]


Well let me start with I suck at taking progress pics, with that being said I don't even have a pic of the truck stock. Bought it in 2008 with 26,000 miles and from there did some 5100s and wheels and tires..... Yup u guessed it no pic of that well fast forward 4 years and finally decided to go lt and decided on the Camburg kit



From there I planned on not doing the spindle at first and was planning on spending that $1,000 on the rear end, later u will find out that plan did not come into fruition because of some "rubbing". So back to the build I ordered some glassworks front fenders and bedsides and opted for the pick up seeing I waited over a month for delivery and it never came. Also decided on the general grabbers in a 315/75/16


So as I was waiting to install the lt kit at my buddy's shop I decided to install the glass


Surprisingly it didn't rub to bad with just 5100s but luckily I have a work truck so it stays parked in the driveway during the week. Finally the weekend came and it was lt install day

The raptor just happened to be at the shop on install day




So at this point I thought it would of been time to star on the rear end so I went out and picked up some 2.5 16" smooth body foxs. Which I later returned for a bypass shock


But the front rubbed like crazy couldn't get a full turn out of the steering wheel without hitting the freshly chopped cab mount area..... So that's where I had to pull some rear end fund and pick up the Camburg spindles



Then started working on the front bumper still working on it but here are some progress pics




Will continue updating as progress happens, going to Hawaii for two weeks starting June 15th so it will be slow till then.... Haha
And here is a full driveway shot

So an update on the rear we have been working on a bed cage design and debating on dual spares or a single spare. Also considering the defined, dmz or giant SUA kits not sure which one I want to go with. Also picked up some 2.0 4" travel fox bumps off Craigslist brand new for 275$ with cans. Once vacation is over I will decide on the SUA kit and "find" the funds, surprisingly the wife is on board so I don't think it will take 4 years to talk her into it like the front.

No I broke one of the clips and wasn't super worried about them, they are sitting in my garage I may attempt to put me on later.

Also I ordered some 8" red ring hids so I will install those bad boys once they come in. And paint will come way down the road, got a handful of other things to spend on before I consider paint. I have a buddy that vinyl wraps I may just do that when the time is right
