    I went with BAMF with the 3" kickout they just looked the sweetest to me, they are heavier then I expected. I plan on using them so I just grabbed a couple cans of Plasti dip to coat them and ill reapply as needed. If it doesn't work out I can always switch up to something else.

    I went with rustolium spray on bed liner on the sliders, it doesn't seem to hold up very well so I will be getting them done in LineX when I get out to CO.

    Also on my last trip to Wharton I busted one of the cheap ebay fog lights and filled the other one with muddy water. So I bought a pair of OEM Fogs from a guy in TX that swapped his front bumper, 30000x better then those ebay lights and only cost about 20$ more. My Alternator temporarily stopped working, the dealer knocked out enough mud to get it to work for my ride home, sprayed out the engine bay and whatever that did it worked so I returned the new alternator and haven't had any issues since.

    all in all its being used like a truck and holding up pretty good. I'm thinking about doing the hidden snorkel mod for it.

    Hey OP I love the truck coming along awesome I dig it, on a side note so you know dual CB antenna's will not get you any better reception/transmit when they are that close together they half to be 8 feet away from eachother to work properly but if it's just for looks disregard what I just said great job with your truck.

    Thanks, yea it was mostly looks, I have them working as my radio antenna as well. I only use the CB on the trail as most people around here don't use CBs anymore.
