    The first thing I did was tined the front two windows to match the back two. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next I did a couple cheap mods starting with the tailgate lock (kind of) and the MagLight mod.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next I went and painted my badges.
    [​IMG]

    Bought Weather Tech window vent visors and rock/bug deflector
    [​IMG]

    Painted the chrome grill surround flat black.
    [​IMG]

    Next I bought a roll-n-lock truck bed cover.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I added a semi-custom rack system on top of the roll-n-lock

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next I finally was able to get my hands on some bad ass devil horns for my truck! Thanks andres
    [​IMG]

    Finally after almost a year, I was able to get my lift! Its a Pro Comp 6" Lift, 18" ATX Force wheels (teflon coated), and 325/65R18 Dunlop Fierce Attitude M/T.

    Finally got some mud on her
    [​IMG]

    I like to treat my truck like my women...ride them hard and put them away wet....and muddy?
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Went and picked up a Yakima Load Warrior Basket for my soon to come spare tire and other equipment.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I spent about a day making a custom mount for my axe and shovel. I just fabricated the brackets out of a piece of 1/8 in sheet metal and added some conduit clamps. works great.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also, I did the back up camera anytime mod...no pics though. The write ups on this site are spot on though. Thanks for the info!

    Any suggestions for future mods are welcome!

    Also, if anyone is up around Watertown, NY and knows of some good trails please let me know!

    I actually went into a place around here and was looking at the ATX Artillarys. Also was looking at the Firestone Destination ATs but have been hearing alot of good things about the Duratracs. Now I just need to find a shop near me that will install the lift at the right price and knows what they are doing.

    I need to do a bit of trimming in the wheel wells, so probably the cab mount chop mod, the the diff breather mod once the parts arrive. once i get some money in the bank I will be looking for some sliders, lights (BHLM and some off road lights), I need to re gear, then some armor.

    Yea I just need a long weekend so I can get it done right. I will need to repaint my grille surround again too so I might as well just do it then.

    I have heard about that spot. I plan on getting out there soon. I might have to do a little trimming on the fender before.
