Thumper's Tale

Still in progress...

Love at first sight? I got to the dealer and they said they had my truck and all the numbers had been previously discussed so I just had to show up and sign and take delivery... The salesman didn't realize my truck was the one on the show floor... I walked over while he was out searching and realized this was my truck!


Get that santa crap off so I can take delivery...


First morning at home



First accessory... a x-mas gift from my brother. OEM bed net.


Next mod was the inside LEDs, 3rd brake, and reverse lights...


First snow:

Just got a Leer 100R off CL for 700$, sliding windows, pop out cab window, LED 3rd brake, bat powered cargo light


keychain

Bed net is OEM... check in the classifieds here... there are always people selling them. I use mine with my camper as a shelf for the lighter items and bungee them down. It's awesome.

Yeah for sure... those sliders are f'n awesome. I'm super jealous and wishing I would have waited also...

If I find someone willing to buy mine..... I'll put in an order!

Ok so my sliders install was TERRIBLE. First, there was a weird box on my frame:

So I had to figure out what it was and if it was safe to move. Turns out it was.
Then my parts kit didn't have self tapping screws and the sliders didn't line up perfectly. Plus that black box had little nuts on the other side of the frame welded there. SO I had to dremel those away. The bolt holes aren't lined up or the required size so I'll have to drill through. Bleh.

For now I have them bolted on with four bolts along the bottom of the frame and three along the sides of the frame. I didn't get to put on the front solo arm because my drill is bulky and I'll have to just mark the hole locations, then remove the sliders, drill the holes, then finally remount the sliders. Also, the kit I got from AllPro didn't have self tapping screws, it had extra bolts. Ugh. I have had some rough DIY installs/projects but this is by far the worst experience I've had. Also, drilling into the frame is a major PITA. SO was bolting the countersunk screws because they had a zinc coating and none of my allen keys fit properly. I even went to lowes with two of the bolts in hand to try and find something that would fit. Nothing from lowes fit either. So I had to take what I had was the closest and I "hammered" it in with a wrench then used the wrench on the allen for more torque. Ugh.
I'm glad to be somewhat done with this mod. My neck and hands are SORE.

I should have gone with some weld on sliders and just paid a reputable shop to put them on for me. Bleh.
