    I recently installed my lift and tires so figured it's time to show off my truck a little. Here it is today:

    I haven't done anything too crazy to it but so far I love the changes. My goal was a better looking and more capable off-road truck without significantly affecting MPGs and drivability, as it is my DD.

    I bought it used a year ago with 40,000km on it. Here it is on day 1:

    The first thing I did is remove the useless OEM running boards and put on a tonneau cover. Then over the summer I planned and ordered my lift and researched the tires. Last week I had the tires installed.

    Mods so far:
    -Front Bilstein 5100s at 1.75", stock coils
    -Rear OME N182s with 1.5" AAL and TSB (Canadian truck)
    -Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 P265/75R16 tires

    Future plans:
    -Scooped hood
    -Color match grille surround and rear bumper
    -Fog lamps
    -Increase front lift to 3" with new coils and UCAs

    Thanks to everyone on TW for the inspiration and answers to all my questions :)

    Thanks for looking!
