    [​IMG]

    Sold the camper, kinda wish I hadn't but I need new tires

    [​IMG]

    It was raining so my bulldog need some shelter

    [​IMG]

    Did some small flexing in the back of my neighborhood haha

    [​IMG]

    Then I found a nice short trail on the other side of my neighbor hood

    [​IMG]

    Georgia got some snow which was weird but hey I got some TITS :D

    [​IMG]

    Went on my first wheeling trip! Meet some great guys from TW there, had lots of fun

    [​IMG]

    Here's some of the guys, Cam (ChamYota), Zac (Xaqori), Israel and Tyler (Gabassman)

    [​IMG]

    Chris (Iceman2448) and Greg (Meatman) came later but I didn't snag a pic

    [​IMG]

    And this is what happens when you bring an Isuzu Trooper to a Tacoma meet :rofl:

    [​IMG]

    Cleaned up the truck and the sunset looked awesome so I snapped a pic

    [​IMG]

    Finally got warm enough to paint some stuff, so I bought some 2nd ten emblems (they look so much better than 1st gen)

    [​IMG]

    Finally had enough cash to get my new rims and tires! :woot: :goingcrazy: Pro-Comp 7069 with Wrangler Duratrac 265's

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now that I had that out of the way, I needed to get rid of that stupid spacer lift that the PO had put on….. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got some billie 5100s and toytec coils from a member for a pretty good deal, brand new too!

    [​IMG]

    Damn things are beefy as hell!!

    [​IMG]

    From my first wheeling trip I figured out I needed some stuff, like better tires, cb radio and better suspension

    It was a great month of modding for me :D

    [​IMG]

    Here is my CB and antenna setup (you can sort of see my 2nd gen emblem setup here) and my TW sticker :thumbsup:

    Haven't done anything recently, saving up for some sliders.

    But my air unit has been making a funny sound (and blows out dust a little) since my last camping trip. I think some dirt got in there some how. It looks (from the maintenance book) that its a lot of work just to get to the blower unit. So I haven't checked it yet

    The antenna would be perfect. Their website doesn't have a good shot of it. I'd like to see it w/the tailgate open. Also, how are you running your coaxial cable to the antenna? As for the cb, I have a general idea how to mount it. Thank man, much appreciated.

    Cool man, did you have to drill new holes or use the existing holesfor the mount? It looks like you're using the stock holes foe the latch. Is that correct? Thanks for the info and pics, greatly appreciate it.

    Yea there was no drilling at all (except to keep the antenna from grounding out, we made the antenna hole bigger and threw in a rubber washer) BAMF makes a great product for this. Just have to paint it and that's it
