Piercedtiger's build

Might as well do one of these since so many pics of my truck are in my cheap/free thread....

Mods so far in no particular order:
  • step bars
  • fog light any time
  • turn signals as DTRLs
  • alternating turn signals
  • engine bay light
  • BHLM
  • blacked out grill
  • 12v outlet in bed
  • bed and rock lights
  • Bestop topper
  • auxiliary reverse lights
  • Hi-Lift bed mount
  • reinforced skid plates
  • 3" lift
  • 265/75 16 tires
  • 12v outlet under the hood
  • driver's seat flashlight mount
  • MF-1050 stuffer behind rear seat
  • reinforced tailgate
  • 4 extra D-rings
  • relocated 7-pin
  • locker anytime
  • ABS cut off
  • redline hood struts
  • Brute Force Fab front bumper

Mostly stock, still new, just added step bars.


Extra D-Rings after a week or so.





Hi-Lift mount:





12v bed outlet





Reinforced tailgate (1 piece of bed frame angle iron on top and bottom of tailgate, note the screws securing bottom one)




Bolts showing where the top brace is mounted



MF-1050 modified with longer power cables (cheap jumper cables from Autozone) to reach the rear wheels. Cheap OBA setup until I have the money and ambition to do a "real" OBA setup.


Bestop cover (after lift and with 285/75 16s at the time)



(no BHLM or black grill yet. I got bored and desperate to do something over the winter )

BLHM. Had paint left over and decided to do the grill too.





Flashlight mount

Bed lights, Bestop, Hi-Lift mounted at night


bed/rock lights

Thanks! Haven't made much progress in the last year. Money, time, and marriage issues have gotten in the way.

Some offroad shots. Wish I had more time, trails and gas/mod money!
(These were all back when I still had 285's... And they still clear everything except 1/2" on the UCAs when turning lock to lock.)











Buddy's jeep got flooded somehow even with his snorkel. Had to keep boosting his battery to get him going again. Damn auto couldn't be push started.






heh... I managed to tow him down this hill thinking we'd better get off the trail in case we couldn't get it started again. First gear, 4Lo works wonders.
