    I was in your situation at one point. But then I bought new tires, offroad bumpers, and a supercharger. :D

    Yup. Night and day difference. From a gutless wonder to hold on to your ass. At the end of the day it's still a truck, but it pulls pretty hard for a truck and all the extra weight that's been added.

    Op- If you try hard enough something will present itself. I thought I was done with mine, 6 months later and I'm just starting on it. haha

    Jberry- Always a fan. If my truck evolved I'd like to think it would turn into yours, or a Pikichu.

    i am not sure if you like the fighter cock pit look but im thinking of doing that this summer to mine. im also going to spray my bedline, rock panels, and my tool box. also been pondering making my own custom sub box or figuring out how to make my back seat more user friendly. yesterday I polished everything, freshened up all the plastic and wheels with tire shine. and spray painted my rear drum brakes black and also painted my exhaust till i buy my magnaflow. hopefully one of these will spike your interest and give you something to do!

    I can honestly say, I cannot think of another scenario where my truck and a pokemon were mentioned in the same sentance, let alone a side by side evolution. Rep for you sir for that and having a burnt truck much like my own.


    OP...what do you use your truck for? I was gonna suggest sliders but I took a closer look at your pix. I didn't realize you were 2wd.
    Maybe a light coat of nighshades on the tail lights to go with the theme you currently have and even a light tint on the side windows. Hell the way your truck is currently set up, I think a set of bushwacker fenders would look fantastic.

    this

    also It looks like you're lifted in the rear with blocks. I personally would save up for a set of custom alcan leafs.

    Definitely. I've done all of the cheap stuff, and I don't want to pump big money into this one...

    O.K. after looking at the pics it looks like you've done a great job getting all the smaller projects done. So that being said, I stand corrected lol I think you're out of stuff to do. Anything more of the smaller projects might be too much and clutter it up. Right now it's just enough and still clean.

    The ONLY thing else I'd recommend for a long term goal even though I know you're on a budget is Trail Gear, Elite, Shrockworks front bumper something along those lines. But other than that I'd just enjoy the truck, maybe for the short term start to focus on changing all the fluids and maintenance that way you can keep enjoying it.

    That's the funny thing about TW...just when you think you're 'done' you will find something else to do! I came here with no intention of ever changing anything, just had a question that turned out to be axle wrap, and now I can't stop!

    still on my list: offroad lights and bedliner
