    This is about how it sat for a year and a half of so.

    In the summer of 2010 I bought a tool box for the bed
    Also a few stickers here and there...

    Did the Maglight mod

    Stuck on a recovery shackle. You can see my shot struts in the background. One of them started leaking

    Found out about Plasti-Dip :crapstorm: and did the grill, emblem, and accents? etc.

    Finally, in June 2011 I got some OME NitroChargers and 880's installed. They gave the front end ~1.75 inches of lift. I went with 880's instead of 881's because I didn't want to have to worry about alignment issues. It looked like they would give about 2.5 inches of lift, and around that height some people said there could be issues with alignment so I went with the 880's.

    ^^ Yes the truck is lifted in that pic ^^ I need to get better pics up though.

    Did the diff breather extension mod (finally :D)
    [​IMG]

    Lifted the back end ~2 inches! We rebuilt the old leaf packs by removing one of the old leaves, and replacing it with two leaves from some other vehicles. It lifted the back end at least 2 inches, and gave a positive arch to my leaf packs :)

    Custom built light bar

    Put my canopy on for the winter. The canopy came on the truck when I bought it. I need the toolbox to hold my gear so I strapped it along the edge of the bed.

    Flexing the front OME w/swaybar removed:

    Had to get new tires so I got the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors:

    Built some sway bar disconnects:

    Swapped out the pea green gauge cluster lights for some blue LED's:
