    Ok, So after much deliberation and research, I have decided the route I want to go in this build. It is going to be a somewhat slow process, so bare with me.

    Bought some rims from my brother in law just because they were available. $75 with free mount and balance at a friend's shop. Ripped off the factory side steps and mud flaps. 02/01/13

    The ride is a little stiffer now, but I was expecting that coming into it. The Duratracs are great so far. I had to do minimal trimming on some plastic up front and still have a little more to go before no rubbing. Does not look like I am going to have to do the cab mount chop though.

    You know, it is still debatable. I loved my ford, and the day I sold it I went to a ford dealership to buy another, but I seen the Yota sitting there that had just come in on trade in and got a really good deal so I thought what the hell? why not? Now that I have it looking pretty decent I am starting to like it just as much as my ford.

    Looks good man! I have almost the exact same stuff! I just purchased a SWB from another member and will be installing everything on redeployment. How do you like those NFABs? Did you do the grille yet?
