I am sitting on:

265/75/16 BFG A/T KO2 - Installed 2 weeks ago
16 in Method Racing Standard Wheels - Installed 2 weeks ago
Bilstein 5100's - Installed 2 weeks ago
2014 Entune Radio Plus and some upgrades to the interior - new lower dash piece, tech deck, ram mounts, some new OTRATTW buttons for existing stuff I have
Blue Sea Fuse Block and mounting plate
Some LED goodies
MagnaFlow OffRoad Catback
Plasti-Derp Grill Surround with black billet bolt over


Some of future mods, Money Permitting:

Full armor and winch, still kind of weighing my options on those.
Not sure what I am going to do with the bed just yet since I do have a quad that I like to use and various other shooting gear. I kind of want a softtopper but I am really digging the bed racks. When I camp I sleep in the truck bed with one of those truck bed air matresses so I am still trying to figure all of that out.

Sick dude!! Good stuff. Get the bed rack and a roof top tent! I love my roof top tent man. You'd really like one. That's awesome though bro. Off to a very nice start!

Badass truck man. The color is so sick! Did you paint it yourself? Also how do you like the magnaflow? Thinking about getting a Catback exhaust too

Thanks man. I had Mr. Bill's in murrieta do the paint. They did a wonderful job on it. Covered everything except the engine bay for a great price. Not to mention their paint guy did a great job matching the magpul fde that I wanted. So far I love the exhaust. There's a bit of drone but the sound is very aggressive and exactly what I was looking for. I am a huge fan of magnaflow.

I had the TRD for a little bit and it was cool but it wasn't as aggressive as I'd like. You'll like the magnaflow better if you like a little more beef and aggressiveness. Or if you like a little quieter not as beefy the TRD would work for you.
