Just installed a Borla 140140 exhaust that I had to cut down to a 140160 because I have a short bed. The guy bought it and used it for 5 days and his wife made him take it off. He couldn't return it so he sold it to me. :D

Pics added.

Lookin good!

Wondering what those mirrors will look like installed. Keep up the good work :D

PepsiManKolt 03-27-2013 11:09 AM

Paint matching a few parts today:
Satoshi grill
2 of 4 door handles
Tail gate handle
Emblem for satoshi

I hope to have them on the truck tomorrow so I can get started working on the other 2 door handles and side view mirrors. In the mean time I am going to find some time to debadge I hope.

PepsiManKolt 03-28-2013 10:33 AM

Just installed my Paint match Satoshi, door handles and tailgate handle. I sanded down the line on the handles so they are completely smooth.

Looking forward to getting the other handles, side mirrors and grill emblem finished in the next few days. Also started deconstructing the rear seats to create the patterns for the leather. Sooner or later I would like to pick up some good-new condition headlights to do a BHLM.

PepsiManKolt 03-28-2013 04:58 PM

Just finished de-badging... busy day lol

Steves104x4 03-28-2013 05:06 PM

Just installed my Paint match Satoshi, door handles and tailgate handle. I sanded down the line on the handles so they are completely smooth and added mesh to the smaller outter holes in the grill: (these have been removed)

Rear seats in:

PepsiManKolt 05-24-2013 02:13 PM

So I have been to busy/lazy to do updates so I am just going to do it now.

1 May: did a BHLM
(some time inbetween): Installed a 2012 touchscreen (non-entunes)
Today: picked up a paintmatched SnugTop XV


PepsiManKolt 08-16-2013 10:47 PM

MT kit on its way! :yay:

PepsiManKolt 08-22-2013 04:56 PM

MT kit has arived... Now i am just waiting for the Sept 7th Mod Meet and preping my rear leafs.


Smar969905 09-02-2013 04:22 PM

you are worse than a kid on christmas eve. we know you aren't waiting to install that kit...

PepsiManKolt 09-02-2013 07:26 PM

lol Ya, I know. I got the stuff a week and a half ago and was just chomping at the bit to get it on. The long weekend was too tempting and I caved. I just got the rear leafs on thanks to you. The only thing I am missing now is the extended brake lines and the front driverside bolt that I had to cut off to get the broken leaf out (tomorrows projects) then I will post up pictures.

Smar969905 09-03-2013 04:46 PM

Will also gave me all his old hardware that wouldn't work with his new suspension. I may have that bolt as well.

PepsiManKolt 09-03-2013 05:53 PM

I actually got a bolt along with my Extended SS brake lines at the Olympic 4x4 Supply (5 min from your house lol)

PepsiManKolt 09-03-2013 06:47 PM

I still need to do the brake lines but here is how it looks right now:


PepsiManKolt 09-04-2013 12:16 PM

I couldn't wait for Sat to do the brakes. It was only $50 and I needed to use the truck to pick THIS up today (and other stuff):


Which one should I go with?

ChamYota 09-18-2013 09:58 AM

ARB. all day, im a bit bias though because that's what i plan on putting on mine..

How'd you prep the chrome before you color matched? im fixing to buy some paint to colormatch my grill?

PepsiManKolt 09-18-2013 10:12 AM

Oh, wow thanks for reminding me. I haven't updated since the bumper/tire change.

I did end up going with the ARB and I got some 285/75r16 Pro Comp Extreme A/T tires. I will update with pictures in a bit.

I actually bought a painted grill for $50 on CL. Then I sanded, primed, paint, and clear. I painted the door/tailgate handle and mirrors while I was at it. I got the top quality paint and it cost me about $150 for everything and I still had about half of everything left.

After the ARB install and 285 swap.

PepsiManKolt 09-23-2013 07:50 PM

Just ordered an aFe Stage 2 CAI. Should be in in a few days. Getting closer and closer to getting the truck how I want it to be.

Now, I am mainly looking forward to:
Trimmed body mount (to accommodate 285s)
U-Bolt flip w/ timbrens
Warn Winch w/ remote
Unichip or URD controller

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 06:43 PM.
