    smashed this, broke that, covered it up with tape and paint
    So i bought my 2016 DCSB TRD Sport 4x4 in april of this year and started working on the upgrades shortly after, here is the list of what has gone on the truck so far and I will be updating as more of the truck changes this upcoming 2017


    I had the intentions of moving out to the woods when i moved back to kentucky and was going to build a ranch/campground for myself and for other veterans to come out to for free and camp to their hearts desire so that they could get back to nature or just blow off some stress. When my grandfather passed away those plans evaporated when the bank refused to let me take over his mortgage for the property. After fighting with this for a long time and searching for another purpose that would allow me to give myself a form of active therapy and healing as well as help other veterans and service members in situations like mine the idea of the IGY6 Rescue truck was born.
    I decided after all the times that i had picked up the phone and had a friend or brother in arms on the other side who just needed a friendly voice and an open ear or someone to just sit with them when they were struggling the most that i would build my daily driver into a truck with a purpose.
    Now i use my truck whenever i get a phone call, text, email or anything else that alerts me to a brother or sister in need. Be it a rescue from their own mind, a rescue from a rough week at work, or just a rescue from themselves. I jump in my truck, put the pedal to the floor and get to where i need to be to make sure that not one more brother or sister becomes a statistic on my watch.

    I am here to rescue the person, not a stuck truck on a trail cause he's a ding dong and went somewhere stupid in his Subaru (it happened recently)

    install of my @C4fab rock sliders


    Okay, so here is my install report :)
    first impressions on pick up- DOOOOOOD these look great!
    So i took mine to get linex'd since powdercoat wasnt a local option. DO NOT DO IT, Linex made the install of these near impossible and i had to cut off sooooooo much of the linex coating to get things to sit properly and still had issues because the linex made the holes in the sliders smaller so it made it that much harder to get hardware into the sliders and frame, It also made some of the bolts too short to reach through the slider and frame easily and still meet up to the nut without cross threading or missing them all together. i repeat DO NOT LINEX!!!

    SO from a common sense aspect install is pretty straight forward. line up all your bolts into the holes on the slider and do MULTIPLE mock ups before even begining to start bolting things on. I cannot stress how important it is that ALLLLLLLL holes line up or your brake line clips will not go back in place and the electronic boxes on driver and passenger side will not go back. SO make sure everything is lined up. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you use jacks to press the sliders against your frame to get the proper fit and avoid shifting.

    each side of my rock sliders only required a total of 5 Bolts on the side and as a side note i replaced all the grade 5 hardware included with grade 8 just for my own comfort and peace of mind.

    the captured nuts on a stick that allow you to reach into the frame more easily are a FANTASTIC idea but will require some bending based on YOUR TRUCK SPECIFICALLY due to the fact that in the closed portion of the frame there are pinch welds that cause the sticks to not be able to sit flat and that was yet another reason why i went to grade 8 bolts (they were longer and were less likely to cross thread)

    for the box that is on the passenger side of the frame i HIGHLY recommend you go out and find a replacement bolt to use when reinstalling it because of how short it is mine (with linex) was not able to reach back all the way like it should have and as a result i had to place mine into the mounting slot and then secure with some apoxy just to be safe (ANOTHER REASON LINEX IS NOT A GOOD IDEA LOL).

    all hardware included was grade 5 which is good but since i like my parts TORQUES pretty hard if you are like me i highly suggest replacing your washers with grade 8 or higher because i actually crushed and bent a majority of mine.

    as you'll see in my pictures there is also an issue where when my new bolts went in some of them were against my brake lines and that made me nervous so if it bothers you as well i highly recommend that you find a way to create a gap between the bolts and your lines like i did, (zip ties, and a plastic sleeve)

    I have not done the drilling of the frame yet to install my permanent hardware for the recommended offroad hardware but will be doing so shortly.

    If you are installing yours this winter like i did i would also HIGHLY suggest going to the carwash first to get the salt off your frame and then clean once more at home before starting the install to make sure that there is nothing that could cause corrosion over time, I will also be sealing all the places where the sliders are touching the frame with a rubber spray sealant to keep gunk and moisture less likely to get between it. (but again thats just me being overly cautious)

    i did have some minor issues with the quality of the mounting hardware i received which was another reason i went to grade 8 over the grade 5 included but i called and brought it to C4's attention and was told that the issue would be resolved moving forward so that you fine customers will not have the same concerns moving forward :) (VERY GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE)

    overall the install was easy-ish
    it took me 14 hours over all to do but 90% of that was issues caused by the LINEX so let me stress again DONT DO LINEX (or rhinoliner)
    had i not had that crap on these the install would have taken less than 1-2 hours MAX

    overall i am VERY pleased with my products and will be ordering the front and rear bumpers shortly.
    Highly recommend their products and hope you guys find my words and pictures helpful.

    Ripped out the rear cab trays behind and under the seat and put hushmat extreme down to silence some of that pesky road noise, insulate my cab a little more for heating and cooling, and help that audio not get lost in the sauce.

    As for heating and cooling I only notice a little change, but by far the truck is way quieter and my base on my stock audio hits a lot more. Well worth the money and time.

    Will be putting some speaker carpet over all this soon to make it look a little more finished and factory



    Update May 16th
    Started doing sound deadening on the doors, so far so good
