Mike V.'s MGM Build

Ok, So after much deliberation and research, I have decided the route I want to go in this build. It is going to be a somewhat slow process, so bare with me.


How She SIts Today ...........




What I gave up!


The Day I bought her! I immediately snatched out the stereo and installed a Pioneer 8400BT DVD Unit and replace all factory speakers with Infinity Kappas. 01/01/13


Bought some rims from my brother in law just because they were available. $75 with free mount and balance at a friend's shop. Ripped off the factory side steps and mud flaps. 02/01/13


Just ordered my Toytec Ultimate Lift last night w/ LR UCA's. Also ordered N-Fab steps, GrillCraft Grill, and Weathertech Floor Mats this morning. Hopefully it will all ship soon. (pics soon) 03/23/13
Update.....Ordered my wheels and tires today. 17 x 9 XD Hoss Black (4.5 bs, -12 offset) and 285/70/17 Duratracs 03/25/13 (RECEIVED 03/28/13)
Update.....Ordered BAMF light bar. 03/26/13


UPCOMING MODS
-Wet Okole Seat Covers
-Depending on how I like Grillcraft grill, maybe a satoshi.
-Color match Grill and Rear Bumper
-BHLM (if I am brave enough)
-LED's throughout Cab
-Window Tint
-Maybe a stereo upgrade
-And I am sure I will come up with much more./

The ride is a little stiffer now, but I was expecting that coming into it. The Duratracs are great so far. I had to do minimal trimming on some plastic up front and still have a little more to go before no rubbing. Does not look like I am going to have to do the cab mount chop though.

You know, it is still debatable. I loved my ford, and the day I sold it I went to a ford dealership to buy another, but I seen the Yota sitting there that had just come in on trade in and got a really good deal so I thought what the hell? why not? Now that I have it looking pretty decent I am starting to like it just as much as my ford.

Looks good man! I have almost the exact same stuff! I just purchased a SWB from another member and will be installing everything on redeployment. How do you like those NFABs? Did you do the grille yet?
