    The day I brought her home.
    [​IMG]

    Started with BAMF sliders and Avid front and rear bumper guards. Eventually got over the guards and needed to upgrade.

    Figured I needed some armor so I picked up some skids from BAMF and Pelfreybilt

    Installed the lift next....First time working on a truck but everything went smoothly.
