Figured it was about time to show what my truck looks like. Been around this site for years now looking more than talking but I guess we can put something together.

Bought the truck used in 08 with 32,xxx. Didnt touch it for a year but then decided I was wanting to make it my own. Im not sure the order of the mods that were done but screw it here it goes.

3/27/2014

10/10/2013


Started the easy route with some high quality plastidipped rims and added a flowmaster 40 (not pictured):



Doing this is where I can confirm that the mod bug bit me and hast stopped. After that I had some huge help, and many texts, to Jerez. Thanks again man for the help


Dropped in some HID's, which didnt last too long and tackled the BHLM.

Added some corners just to get the yellow out.


Wanted more light in the interior and also new ones for reverse lights so got some lights from csjumper:



Then decided I was sick of the HID's, so picked myself up some retrofits from TRS and threw on the Eyelids:

Before I had the cheap toytec leveling kit with the spacers in the aal in the rear, but realized that it was time to step up and start on a real lift. Picked up a set of these in a groupbuy:

also snagged some spidertraxx and got extended brake lines and also extended lug nuts but never put the lug nuts on:



Thanks again for the perfect timing of nfs257 coming to Oklahoma to help me with the install (well Chris literally did the whole damn thing):


How it sat afterwards (yes my driveway was an incline too):

Other than that I think that is the end of it as of now. Looking to finish my suspension soon. But here is some pictures just for fun that I have




Also want to thank my friend Chris out in Oklahoma who helped me with almost every mod that I did, half of them were his idea to do to my truck. Here is one of his vehicles:

Today I removed the sway bar, and my god it feels amazing. Waiting on the ball joints for the Uca's before doing the install

Got the new ball joints in so went and started the install. All went smooth but it is a pain in the ass to pull apart the lca from the spindle. Also didnt have time to finish the drivers side, will continue up sunday. Hoping to get the last coil in, the leafs installed with shocks/u bolt flip kit, and the extended brake lines

finally finished the driver side and added the top plate spacer to ensure no lean. Start the lift in the rear tuesday.
