    Love these seat covers.
    IMG_20110612_201743.jpg

    This rolling tonneau cover is on point as well.
    IMG_20110606_182921.jpg

    Paid the man, and she finally made it home.
    IMG_20110612_201706.jpg

    The paint wasn't very good.
    IMG_20110606_182742.jpg

    So a new paint job was soon to come.

    Some fishing and 4 wheeling with my bothers.
    223067_2246491319716_3870387_n.jpg

    Our Cabin in the Smokey Mountains.

    The Truck pretty much had no mods done to it for about 2 years.

    Yosemite National Park.
    IMG_2224.jpg

    I got orders to 29 Palms, California and I realized much more needed to be done.
    IMG_2389.jpg

    Building again, and started with a Frontrunners Outfitters Slimline II Roof Rack and a 40 inch Light Bar.
    IMG_2888.jpg
    IMG_2885.jpg

    Decided the stock suspension wasn't going to cut it. Purchased the FOX Racing 2.5 Factory Series RR Coilovers with Camburg Racing Uniball UCAs.
    IMG_2897.jpg

    And the Fox Racing 2.0 PB rear shocks.
    IMG_3050.jpg

    Out with the old.
    IMG_2912.jpg
    IMG_2913.jpg

    Here is the new front suspension with the UCAs. I decided to upgrade the brakes as well, drilled and slotted rotors with some racing pads.

    Taking 2.5 inches off the fenders all the way around. Was a little nervous with the first cuts.

    No going back now.

    After many weekends of building, it was finally time for some wheeling.
    Big Bear, California. But First, new wheels and tires. Method Race Wheels 17 inch Double Standard wheels and some fresh Nitto Terra Graps.

    We bought a secondary offroad vehicle so the mods on the truck were at a halt again while I worked on the Jeep. Oh finally had the rock sliders that sat in my garage for months welded on.

    Sometimes it snows in the desert.

    Bed Rack was needed, All-Pro Offroad Pack Rack went on. Shortened 5 inches and custom mounted to work with my rolling tonneau cover.

    A larger RTT was needed so I called up Bobby at Cascadia Vehicle Tents and had the Mount Hood RTT delivered to me while I was at TDS 2015.

    Yea I kinda did the same thing because I installed airbags to toe a trailer across country, they required me to cut the factory bump stops off. I didn't have a gas tank skid either and I decided it was time for me to get one of those as well. Thank god I didn't puncture that plastic gas tank.

    Thanks man you have a great looking taco as well. Gotta let me know how your custom rear bumper turns out. May have to make 2 haha. Been wanting a swing out for awhile now. I haven't updated my thread in awhile I've done a few for things to it. My light bar was stollen so i bought another and got some dually's for my fog light holes. Gonna put some OME leafs on this weekend as well.
