Rigid Taco's Build

Hey guys,

So I'm new to Alberta and the truck world too, the build is slowly going and figured id track it for my own pleasure as well as anyone else's.

I got her end of May 2013 brand new looking like this, Snuck her out on a road trip first weekend!


Some dreaming....."So many rocks to climb, one day when i grow up"


Canada Day Sleepover


Then her first mod's

New Shoes (Rims & Tires)
3 Inch Pro Com Leveling kit
Mud flaps removed




Skid plates are done, just need painting. Pic's to follow as its too cold to paint now.

Feb 2013
BOOM



Did some tweaking as a result of the above mishap..... SHIT HAPPENS, MAKE THE BEST OF IT. As i was limited on funds due to saving for the CVT RTT group buy i just did some little things that were affordable.



And the rack is ready! 2 spares mounted, Hi-Lift, Axe and Shovel mounts. Just need to get the items to put there along with the RTT on the way!

The rack will change slightly as it still needs mounts for the Awning as well. In time!

Took a nice road trip to CVT and picked up my roof top tent and other random camping gear. So far just the tent mounted, but damn she looks good!

All sealed up for Wheelin:


Open (Picture is missing the Annex and Awning)

Thanks, Im leaning towards the 30 inch combo spot/flood on the front bumper. Maybe a couple pods to mount on the cage for side view and to utilize while camping.

Man I really like that front bumper. How long did it take your friend to fab it? And what kinda cost we talking about for something like that? Maybe with an opening in the front for mounting a nice LED bar?

That bumper i got via insurance so it had to be purchased. It's a body armor, picked it up from 4 wheel parts for just over a grand.

He could probably make something similar of you're interested. Send him a message on Facebook or pm me and I'll give you his number.
