    Purchased July 1st, 2017 with full intentions to go overboard with modding because for a long time I was following people on Instagram like Defconbrix and Tcadwell knowing I really wanted to do this kind of thing in the future.

    31934628_1754211524635563_3422455315566690304_n.jpg 31898232_1754211467968902_5903979241854205952_n.jpg
    I had actually won this Toytec lift kit on a Facebook giveaway in a third gen page and was helped to install it by NJ dirtbag crew who I owe a lot of beers to.

    Here is the lift installed like a month after getting it.

    31919388_1754211547968894_5041539960457396224_n.jpg
    Found a steal of a deal on this leer 100r in Deleware for only $800 used 2 months from a member in the craigslist find page.

    A little glam to get rid of that disgusting cheese grater chrome.

    A friend turned me to Matt from TNT 4x4 in North Jersey and he got me a great deal on a set of method 305nv and 285/75r16 Cooper ST MAXX.

    Matt also was able to get me a pair of Mobtown Offroad bolt on sliders for a ridiculously cheap price! Just used a roller and some rustollium and she was good to go.

    @Chux was nice enough to pretty much do my whole cb radio install for my Uniden PRO520XL (I still owe him a beer for this) and I threw on some tufskinz tailgate insert to make that shiney chrome rear end look a bit nicer.

    For my first ever camping trip in the Blue TuRD I had just placed a memory foam mattress in the truck bed but it got a little wet from a water crossing or two so I made this platformfrom 2x4 and 3/4 plywood to give storage underneath and my sleeping platform on the top. This will be the setup that I'll be running until I stomach up the pocket change to buy a Rooftop tent.

    mount.jpg
    leaf pack.jpg front 3.jpg
    install.jpg
    Threw in a relentless hi lift mount and full sized spare in the back while I waited literally forever for the cbi high clearance dual swingout bumper to arrive! Sure was nice of cbi to give me the wrong lugs for the spare carrier so I had to find new lug nuts to fit after we welded it on. Knowing how much this weighed and having sag just from the camping setup I also made sure to purchase a dakar heavy duty leaf pack with add a leaf and wheelers ubolt flip kit and bump stops.

    front 2.jpg
    front.jpg
    A couple weeks later those fronts finally arrvied! This time cbi giving me the wrong sized bolts for the side support on the front.

    dif 2.jpg dif.jpg
    And lastly currently I finally and way to late installed a dif breather relocater to behind the driver taillight.

    CBI full skids and full Prinsu have been ordered so only a matter of time before those arrive, hopefully a shorter wait then those bumpers were.

    Small photo dump from recent trip to AOAA, spent more time trying to hit most of the trails and keeping a friend without sliders from bashing his doors in.

    Second mistake, admitting you like dhefcondix
    Third mistake, making everyone aware you have a build thread

    It’s been an expensive week. The blue sea I’ve been sitting on for to long has been wired up, a smittybilt x20 has been installed, and my cvt rooftop tent has arrived. Last minute trip prepping is always a blast!
