    First trip was to Mendocino National Forest OHV a year ago. At this point I had Falken Wildpeak 265/75/16 AT3Ws and they worked great.

    Also installed four D Rings to hold my Wavian 20L Jerry Can

    Pictures from Bodie, CA in May 2018, was able to navigate most of Bodie pretty easily with the 265/75/16 AT3Ws and stock suspension. At times I wish I had a container to put my camping stuff in or a Soft Topper to cover the bed.

    At the beginning of June 2018 a friend and I installed the Fox Suspension, SPC UCAs, and the 3 Leaf AAL

    Much better, especially off road. It's been awhile since I've ridden on stock suspension but I remember it being more floaty and uncontrolled.

    After the lift was installed I wanted to up my tires from 265/75/16 to 285/75/16. In order to clear the 33s without rubbing a CMC, hammering the pinch weld, and minor fender trim was necessary. The CMC and pinch weld was done by Milogen Fabrications in San Jose. Milo does a great CMC (and other fab work) I highly recommend his shop if you're in the Bay Area.

    Picture of the truck with the 33s mounted and lift. Since I was still on OR wheels Spidertrax spacers were needed to clear the SPC UCAs.

    Next up was armor, I'd done my research and heard plenty of good things about BAMF. I placed my slider order in around end of March and picked them up mid June. The sliders were beefy and easy to install, well worth the wait.

    I ordered the sliders bare metal because I planned on putting them to work and figured it'd be easier to touch them up with a rattle can. My process for prepping was pretty straight forward, sand the sliders down, hit them with Isopropyl Alcohol while scrubbing, then dry them off. For priming I coated them 3-4 times using Rusto Bare Metal Primer waiting about 5 minutes between coats. After 20 minutes I hit them with another 3-4 coats of Rusto Flat Black waiting about 5 minutes between coats. After drying off I staged them for install and touched up any places I missed. I didn't actually get around to installing the sliders for a few weeks because I injured my hand.

    My next goal is to up my recovery gear a bit more. I'm wanting a front bumper, winch, and to swap my 13" 600lb stock coils out for some Eibach 14" 650lb coils so the front doesn't sag. Still need to save a few more dollars before pulling the trigger though!
