    Hey guys, its about time that i start to put together a build page. I got the truck end of 09' and have been slowly adding, changing, and building it up. It came with 130,000 miles and i paid $7000 for it, it was previously owned by a hair dresser.
    I started with changing the oil, transmission fluid, both differential fluids and recharging the ac unit. Next i bought a set of ventvisors and a hood visor. Over the past few months i have bought a welders and built a few new projects. Started with a low profile back rack to hold my bikes and a set of lights. Then i moved onto building a front bull bar which took me a few weeks to complete. Now im working on a full set of sliders. Everything has been made out of 1.5 inch square steel tubing.
    I have taken the truck off road a bunch of times, she loves the mud and have yet to get stuck. My next purchase will be a 3 inch lift and a set of new rubber.


    Hope you enjoy, let me know what you think. Eric

    the grinding accident was pretty simple. i went to switch hands on the grinder and my finger got a little caught up in the wheel. all happened pretty quick, always wear gloves and take my time with the grinder now. it was a pretty cool scar, cut now my fingernail has grown back
