    Few bugs in that one :)





    My window tint is almost a perfect match to the stock back tint. I've never really noticed a difference.


    I've had it on since I bought the truck 4 years ago now, and this is the first time I've noticed that it has a slightly different color to it. Its not noticable.​

    Heres a video of the stereo. Best I could do, sitting inside the vehicle was mad distortion.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJK2HrZqT3g







    Finally recorded some sound of my exhaust. If someone really wants a driveby I might be able to arrange, there is absolutely no drone with this setup. You get off the gas and it sounds stock. Its PERFECT.

    Slow acceleration and cruise....

    I will start dumping all my photos onto this thread so keep an eye out!​

    Never really had anything good to talk about. Since I moved to Cali a month ago, I took up my official sponsor and went to work on the suspension and front end :) Now I just need to get some smaller items and go have some fun with it!

    Thanks everyone!

    More pics will come over the next couple days. I've forgotten some of my mods that I now take for granted :D
