Pearcem87's DD Basic Build

Well, here is my simple build. My truck is my DD and only vehicle, so after much debate, for the time being, I am staying away from a lift, or any other larger mod that is more dedicated to off road performance. However, I still do need a bit more performance than stock, especially with regards to protection. Primary use will be for hunting, fishing, camping, and general exploring throughout VA, NC, and SC.


2013 DCSB, TRD OR, Pyrite Mica

Complete: 265/75/16 Cooper AT3
Sirius/XM Satellite radio


Betterbuilt low profile slimline toolbox (this weekend)
Diff breather relocation (this weekend)
Salex Console Organizer (this weekend)
2nd Front Tow Hook
Budbuilt 4 piece skid plate combo (Aluminum or 1/8th steel)
Avid bolt on sliders, light bar, and rear bumper protector

Recovery/sustainment kit in tool box/bed:

Pioneer Gear(E-tool, hatchet, collapsible pick-ax)
Wyeth-Scott power puller with amsteel blue line
3"x8' treesavers x 2
Recovery Chains
D Rings/Shackles
Tow Straps
50' Winch extension Cable
Rear hitch recovery point
Survival Bag (complete)
Rotopax X2 W/ Bed rail mounts (size TBD)

Nothing too exciting, but it's still fun to have a vehicle that I can personalize again. In a few years when I can hopefully afford a small DD, then it will be time to build her into a real trail rig

Well, lots of new stuff done to the truck:

Salex console and glove box organizer
265/75R16 Cooper AT3's
Differential breather relocation
Rockblokz mudflaps
Better Built slimline, low profile tool box

And just got my Avid bolt on sliders. Fantastic work and customer service, I couldn't be happier. I covered them with duplicolor spray on bedliner. It turned out pretty well, and provides the non-slip surface and textured finish I wanted. The finish doesn't look great, but that was mostly due to my lack of painting skills, not the product (I had to do it in doors and don't have a garage). It's good enough for me.

I also managed to get my hands on a recovery kit and a 3 ton power puller for my tool kit. Budbuilt 4 piece skids are ordered and should be here sometime in August.

How she sits today.
