Just installed a Borla 140140 exhaust that I had to cut down to a 140160 because I have a short bed. The guy bought it and used it for 5 days and his wife made him take it off. He couldn't return it so he sold it to me.

Pics added.

Just installed my Paint match Satoshi, door handles and tailgate handle. I sanded down the line on the handles so they are completely smooth.

Looking forward to getting the other handles, side mirrors and grill emblem finished in the next few days. Also started deconstructing the rear seats to create the patterns for the leather. Sooner or later I would like to pick up some good-new condition headlights to do a BHLM.

lol Ya, I know. I got the stuff a week and a half ago and was just chomping at the bit to get it on. The long weekend was too tempting and I caved. I just got the rear leafs on thanks to you. The only thing I am missing now is the extended brake lines and the front driverside bolt that I had to cut off to get the broken leaf out (tomorrows projects) then I will post up pictures.

I couldn't wait for Sat to do the brakes. It was only $50 and I needed to use the truck to pick THIS up today (and other stuff):



Which one should I go with?

Oh, wow thanks for reminding me. I haven't updated since the bumper/tire change.

I did end up going with the ARB and I got some 285/75r16 Pro Comp Extreme A/T tires. I will update with pictures in a bit.

I actually bought a painted grill for $50 on CL. Then I sanded, primed, paint, and clear. I painted the door/tailgate handle and mirrors while I was at it. I got the top quality paint and it cost me about $150 for everything and I still had about half of everything left.

After the ARB install and 285 swap.

Just ordered an aFe Stage 2 CAI. Should be in in a few days. Getting closer and closer to getting the truck how I want it to be.

Now, I am mainly looking forward to:
Trimmed body mount (to accommodate 285s)
U-Bolt flip w/ timbrens
Warn Winch w/ remote
Unichip or URD controller
