    Alright, here is a great shot. They guys at Avid hooked me up with a prototype rear bumper protector. They will start taking orders for these after the first of the year. This already fits other year trucks.

    The guys at Avid are slammed right now for the Holidays. But after the first of the year, they should be good to go on any orders.

    I am on a budget, so the build will take some time, but I have some good size plans for this one. Anything chrome or unpainted plastic is going to turn black & I have some tint work that I will be doing soon. Then headlights, tail lights, 3rd brake light, wheels, bigger tires, lift, gearing, fog lights, driving lights........

    Alright, one of the numerous things I want to do to my ride is Pro Comp series 98 black wheels, 30x10.5 tires & the lift. I will regear the rear end at the same time. What I am looking for here is a lot of input on the actual rim dims. that I need to get including back spacing to get that size tire to fit under the wells. Also, it's a 5 lug. It would be great if I could find some prices to go with all this as well. As far as gearing I was thinking 3.73 or 3.91. Any body got any info. for me on any of this?

    All sorts of plans for it. After the lift, it's pretty much just cosmetics, but that's what will make it MINE. HAHA

    I was just debating on wrapping my new 12 in AVID. I now feel less original. . . Good start!

    Hey Buzzards, check with PELLEY here on the board. You can see if he is willing to hook something up for you. He's got some really great work.

    Will do man. Is he a vendor/fabricator or something?

    OP can't wait to see them new tires/wheels/suspension. Already know what you want or still researching?

    Hey Buzzards, he is a Fabricator with lots of experience & some great products.

    Mts & Fractured, sorry on the late response, It is a T-Rex grill. They are located in Corona & you can find those grills from T-Rex on e-bay as well.

    You can check in to the Satoshi grill but I am not sure on the price on theirs. T-Rex used my truck as a model for their grills & gave me my choice of what I wanted for free, so I didn't get hit with the $ tag.
