    Well I've been here for a little over a year and decided it was finally time to put a build thread together. Bought the with my own money when i was 16 with 125xxx miles on it. Truck came with a shity 3" Revtek lift and some bald 33's and some bad ass wheels :rolleyes:
    [​IMG]

    First thing I did was got new tires - 33x12.50x15 Cooper Discoverer STs, and new wheels - 15" Wheelers Off road black steel wheels.
    Also debadged the tailgate and painted the door emblems black. (not plasti derped)

    [​IMG]

    Stayed like this for a while until I earned a few more dollars. Timicha (Elite Off Road) hooked me up with one of his bumpers.

    Bought a WickedFlow 13" muffler and dumped it after the axle


    Bought a 1st gen Satoshi grille from a member here

    [​IMG]

    Bought new headlights off ebay with clear corners. Also converted the corners to blinkers.

    [​IMG]

    Bought an Elite Off Road receiver shackle and put it to use a few times the day I got it

    [​IMG]

    Did quite a bit of snow wheeling this past winter. Sometime during one of those trips I managed to rip off the flimsy stock skid plate

    [​IMG]

    Decided to put some color in the cab and added a few green leds in the cup holders and greens strips above the floor mats. These are not always on and are wired through a switch that I can turn on and off.

    [​IMG]

    Next thing to do was to put some lights on the bumper. Decided to go with HID Hella 500s. 55w 6k

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Got in on one of Slimcubbys group buy to match the Hellas

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Wheeled with this set up for awhile and finally decided the spacer lift had to go. After seeing other builds I decided to go with Eibach coils and 5100s set at 0. In the back I went with a 3" leaf pack I bought from a member here and 5125s. Much better ride.
