    Ok so I figured everyone else has a build thread so I should start mine. I am not that mechanically inclined and have a short attention span so the more technical work is done by people that know what they are doing.

    Lift
    King Coilovers
    LR UCA
    All Pro Expo Leaf pack
    Bilstein 5100's in the rear
    Extended Brake Lines

    Armor
    All Pro Rock Sliders
    Armor Tech Offroad IFS Skid
    Armor Tech Offroad Transfer Skid
    Armor Tech Offroad Gas Skid
    Armor Tech Offroad Transmission Skid

    Bumpers
    Armor Tech Hybrid Bumper
    Armor Tech High Clearance Bumber w/ Tire Carrier

    Tires
    XD Revolvers 17x9
    Mickey Thompson MTZ 285-70-17

    Nitro Thick Cut 4.56 Gears
    ARB Air Lockers Front and Rear
    ARB On Board Compressor

    LightForce 240 Blitz

    Other Shit
    Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD
    Wet Okole Seat Covers
    AFE Pro Dry Air Filter
    WeatherTech Floor Liners
    Armor Tech Offroad Hi Lift Mounts
    Armor Tech Offroad Antenna Mount
    Smittybuilt XRC8 w/ Synthetic Line and in Cab Controls

    The first thing that was done was to get the front windows tinted. The lift came next, Toytec Ultimate with some LR UCA's. Need some new shoes so I went with the XD Revolver 17x9 with Nitto Terra Grapplers in 285-70-17. I picked up some All Pro rock sliders and had a buddy weld them on and do the body mount chop. Added a Bestop topper. It sat like that for a year while I was deployed. Put on some Wet Okole covers and started an install on a new head unit. Unfortunatly I didn't get the correct wiring harness so now I'm driving around with out a radio until it gets here.

    I don't have any pics of it stock so this is how she sits today. Had to remove the Bestop to send back. The back corner of the top broke so they are replacing it.

    So I wanted a tool box but was too cheap to buy one. So I took a contico that I had laying around and bolted it to the bed.

    Had an issue putting the breather in the fuel filler but it didn't sit the way I wanted so I put it in the bed cubby.
