LUSETACO's Drop in the bucket build

I guess maybe its time to make a build thread.

My '04 that got the ball rolling and gave me enough equity to buy the '08.









She was a good 'ol girl but time to go sweetheart. Swapped the wheels and tires out before I drove it off the lot.



Hello new truck. Circa 2008.

At least I got a color matched bumper.



Duratracs. They had just come out and they were cheap back then!



Putting them to the test.



First wheeling trip in the Jersey Pines.
