    I've done some more work to her since I posted this. Pretty bad at keeping it updated.

    I believe this was my 3rd style of head lights, 4th set of Anzos (kept fogging) So far they have worked and are with out any leaks and fogging. More recently got the Panavise mount for my phone, gotta say I love it! opens up a cup holder and gets the charging cable out of my way. Also got the Molle seat panel and visor organizer from Blue Ridge Over land gear
    Anzos 4th set.jpg back panel molly.jpg Panavise mount.jpg visor molly.jpg visor molly2.jpg

    UPDATE:
    I went ahead regardless of some of the reviews, and got a stubby. Don't use the radio much if ever, mostly listening to my iTunes through blue tooth.


    Update:
    Replaced the Factory map and dome lights with @MedlinAround 's 16.99 kit. Should've spent the extra 2 bucks and got the full package. But with the new bumper on the way.. I want to see what it looks like first.

    Forgive the clutter - Installed while on Pope week Shifts

    Before


    After:



    Update:
    Finally got the bumper (Pelfrey built), lights and Redline tuning EZ down strut installed, just gotta get the SRQ2's hooked up, impending "tornado" sent me to the fire house for staffing.

    Got reverse lights wired and shackles painted last Monday.
    Added shackle guards from Day Star as well, and cut down some rubber tubing to stop the side to side movement.

    The three gauge cluster surrounds can be done and would look cool.

    Someone's gotta kickstart these new threads :D

    I want to do those, as well as the small door speakers, also wanna get around the climate controls done in black. I've got blue material to do the door arm rests, just gotta tear them down and find a better way to fix them. Already repaired the drivers side door once.

    That thread is actually what got me started here. Use to just stalk the forums.

    I appreciate it :woot:

    Many thanks to Homer for the temp grill to rid me of my crappy ebay plastic one... (temp because I haven't quite made up my mind, and if it sat in his drive way any longer with the shitty grill on it, he may have burned the truck down..)

    Another 10 min mod over Christmas break, took 2 weeks to get it from Amazon. Many angry phone calls and emails later I finally got it.

    Just ordered a BRO visor and back panel. Love your hatchet, what kind is it? Planning on putting my kbar and a medkit on mine. Need a nice hatchet, camp shovel and axe in the future.

    I'm ordering a second back panel for my passanger side, my hatchet is listed below, as well as my spade that I don't believe made it into the photos, my med kit is in the far right side. Works well!

    Took her out for a test drive today for my GoPro camera, seeing how it will work for a dash cam. Worked perfectly!! I'll post pictures when I actually do the "install"
    Also got to take some nice pics of the PelfreyBuilt bumper, debating sending them over to @Pelfreybilt
    Only down fall was it was still snowing when I was taking the photographs.
