    I will try to keep a recent picture of the truck or something I have done to it here:

    14 Months later, I finally finish the rear bumper. Spent less than buying one. Learned a lot. Messed up a lot. Getting it coated with line-x.

    The Story


    I have a cabin in the Northern CO Rockies and will spend most of my time on slightly milder trails en route to lakes and camp sites. That is most of the reason I bought this truck, to take the fam up to remote, beautiful places for camping and fishing. But I do like to go out for day trips where I can push the truck more too.



    New to do list:

    Repaint armor

    Install rock lights

    Anyway, the mod list:



    Suspension:

    OME 886 coils

    OME Nitro Charger/90000 shocks

    Dakar Leaf Packs

    Light Racing UCAs



    Body/Armor:

    ARE Topper

    ARB front bumper

    BAMF LCA Skids

    BAMF Diff Skid

    ATO front, tranny and t-case skids

    Mr. Fab (my bro and I) sliders

    Mr. Fab HC rear bumper



    Accessories/Engine:

    ARB CKMA12 Compressor

    ARB Rear Locker

    Rigid Industries Dually Floods

    K&N CAI

    Warn m8000

    Hi Lift mounted to bed rails

    QuickFists with Shovel, Flashlight, tree saw, OR base for HiLift

    Ammo can with emergency supplies (needs to be mounted)



    Wheels/Tires

    16x8 Konig Countersteer Offroads

    255/85/16 Bf Goodrich KM2

    Full-size spare on factory steel



    Etc.

    Midland 75-822 portable CB

    3' Hustler antenna

    Satoshi Grill

    Diff breather Mod

    Dipped Badges

    Custom bedside decals (made by TW member teamhypoxia)


    Hi lift with OR base

    Toyota bed mat

    Weathertechs

    Tailgate lock

    Exhaust trim

    Quickfists



    Goodrich stainless brake lines (not installed because my OEM lines were on so tight that stripping may have been a problem. Don't really need them yet anyway. Got them through a group buy so I may sit on them, may sell 'em)

    I'm in a similar boat where money is tight so my extra money goes to......savings! Haha so I can do it right the first time and not spend money twice on stuff I'll have to replace later. I plan on having armor all around with a topper and icons all around as well.

    yep, they came smoked from the factory. They have slight dings so that i dont steer you wrong, i drove through a sand storm up in summit county this past winter and they have a little bit of pitting. Nothing to crazy but thought you should know. In the third image you can see if you look towards the lower left.

    You could paint your pinch weld...

    It's the seam that runs along the bottom of the cab, paint it black for a cleaner look.
    search "paint pinch weld" for more info.

    If you like black wheels, you can paint or plasti dip them.

    paint or plasti dip badges, or debadge.

    I trimmed down my antenna, reception is still good, just looks better.

    just a few fun cheap and easy ideas.

    What would you all use to cut mudflaps? How do you clean up the cut?

    I used scissors, really sharp big scissors, then hand sanded with 60 and 100 grit to clean it up, very easy.

    I actually sawed mine in a straight line, then belt sanded the curve from the bottom of the cut off piece, then took a file and cleaned up the plastic for a beveled edge. Very easy

    I was just reading around on the forum and was looking at another members leaf pack when they took it out and it looked to have three long leafs leaves whatever and one short one. I looked at the ones on my truck and I only have two longs and the short. Does this mean the previous owner didn't do the leaf spring tsb? If so, will I just want to replace the whole leaf pack? Sounds good to me, but the wife is gonna provide some resistance...

    He either had the TSB done or has an AAL for his lift kit if he has one. I'd say put your money towards other things till your leaf pack needs replacing, unless that's pretty much now.
