    Hello everyone,
    I'm a first time modder with trucks, I've modded a few parts on my Harley but nothing major. I will be parting out an 03, 4x4 xcab I picked up from a friend. A dui driver hit him and bent the frame and some passenger side front end damage. I bought it to make the bed ito a trailer and some parts, but my neighbor said i have to get rid of the engine stuff and cab before we can start the build on the trailer. So I will be taking more photo's and removing more parts. Is it a good idea to drain the fluids or just leave them its been sitting for about a year. Any suggestions, tips, or gp info would be great.

    Seeing that you are in AZ, it wouldn't hurt to drain them. If you are scrapping the motor you will need to do that anyway.

    Hello, I recently painted the front and rear bumper flat black it looks pretty good but when I did my stock rims with rim specific paint. I really liked the semi shine look so I think I will redo the bumpers. I 've seen several versions with the rustolium and bed liner products. I like the look but I think something smoother would work better due to the desert climate. Any thoughts? :cookiemonster:

    I would also like to paint the plastic trim piece above the bumper black I hear a plasti dip is good any got pic's?:)
