    I haven't made one of these yet, and I'm bored so I thought I would. :D

    I acquired this truck after my previous vehicle got totalled by an 88 year old who hit the gas instead of the brake at a stop sign.

    Here it is the day I got her on 5/31/08. :D

    [​IMG]

    First mod was the K&N Drop-In Air Filter, given to me by Jason Harris (JJ Customs). :D

    First road trip: July 2008. No mods beside the drop-in filter. (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas)

    I got the OEM bed extender at some point...

    I also got the Pop-N-Lock tailgate lock at some point...

    First meet: Fiesta Island 10/11/08.
    [​IMG]

    I got the TSB AAL done sometime before this picture.

    I got Bilstein 5100's installed on 12/11/08, set at 1.75".
    [​IMG]

    5100's and TSB AAL.
    [​IMG]

    I pulled the front flaps on 1/13/09:
    [​IMG]

    I got the rear Bilstein 5100's installed on 1/22/09.
    [​IMG]

    5100s front and rear with TSB AAL:
    [​IMG]

    Can't forget the TW sticker. :D
    [​IMG]

    I got BFG A/T's (265/75/16) installed on 3/6/09.
    [​IMG]

    That was promptly followed by getting the 5100's readjusted to 2.5".
    [​IMG]

    BFG A/T's, 5100s front and rear and TSB AAL.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    I like how everyone is finally making their build threads. FWIW, i got harbor freights Hi-lift jack. 30 bucks. Solid. after using my buddies hi-lift last weekend when comparing it to mine, i like my HF one much better. if you do some researching, plenty of people like the HF hi-lift a lot better as well. Just thought i'd share that with you to help you save some cash money's. Let me know if you want some pics.

    haha. I was thinking about doing the same thing. But I decided to just sell this truck in a few years and get a 4x4 taco. Too much of a hassle. I look forward to it.

    Thank you! Harbor Freight it is. :D

    I was going to do that, too. But I realized that I'm going to be putting so much time and money into my truck that I'm going to keep it until it doesn't run anymore. :D

    Thanks!

    I like to go on road trips. :D
