    So I have had my truck for a few years now and have done a good bit of mods to it. I figured it is time to do a build thread so here it goes.

    Here is a list of mods:

    Engine/Drivtrain
    3.4L V6
    Stock gearing open diffs
    Auto trans
    Doug Thorley headers
    FM super 44

    Suspension:
    King coilovers
    Camburg UCA's
    diff drop(removed)
    AAL with Bilstien 5100's
    Also has a 3 inch body lift that was on the truck.
    Plans are to take it off.

    Wheels/tires:
    285/75/16R Mickey Thompson MTZ's
    16x9 Moto Metal 951's black

    Armor/protection:
    Skid row front skid plate

    Interior:
    JVC head unit
    JL audio 300 watt amp
    JL 10in sub in a ported box
    Huskey floor liners
    Superhide seat covers front only
    Scan guage II

    Exterior:
    ARE camper top

    Lighting:
    Smoked LED 3rd and tail lights
    Clear corners
    Light force 170's (not yet on)

    Recovery gear:
    Tow straps and chains

    This is back in September of 08 when I got her on my two weeks R&R from Iraq.
    [​IMG]
    Once I returned home in 09 I knew I wanted some wheels and tires these came a year later in March of 2010
    [​IMG]
    This is how she sat for a while with the 3 inch body lift which was on when I got the truck and a crapy spacer lift also 5% tint on the windows
    [​IMG]
    So the year went on and I wanted a better suspension. I had thought about an OME for a long time but then settled for these :)
    [​IMG]
    A few days later they were all ready to test.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Love them but something just was not there it still was not what I wanted. Oh yea I had done nothing with the rear so I got these.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Ahhh much better.
    [​IMG]
    So yea I jumped on one of these group buys and got this.

    Nice pickup man! How do you like the King shocks up front with the Bilsteins in the back?

    Thanks man, the Kings are awsome and to my surprise the Bilsteins did soften things up a lot out back. When I first put the Kings on I still had the Shyjackers from the previous lift and it was rough you could tell a big difference from front to rear. Once the billys were in place the ride was so much better on and off road.

    That's cool I'm looking to get a new setup and wasn't sure which way to go. I for sure want the bilsteins in the back. Where did you get your Kings?

    I got the Kings and Billys from Down South Motorsports. They give great deals. It's really all about how much you want to spend the billys are great for now but I do want Kings out back one day.

    For sure I like to spend allot of money to get something I want and the Kings are good so that might be the way I will go.. :D

    I have been wanting to do it but was a little scared it wouldn't look ok. Now that I have done it and seen that it was super easy and I am very satisfied of the results I want to plasti everything.

    How difficult was it to change out your 3rd brake light and tail lights? I heard you have to take off the headliner to install the 3rd brake light?

    No not at all you just pop it out. I had to pry mine out a bit but other than that pretty easy to do. The tails just un screw them take them out put new ones in.
