    So.... Giant update. Its been a while, so here we go.

    Ill start with my new bumper, same as my old one but i can weld better and i took my time on this one, and addeda hitch.
    IMG_0393_zps356a27c3_41aed924da0af9ffc0b173f59b117330c52e9ede.jpg
    IMG_0397_zpsfc70441f_0ff966310b9fa302c87fd8fe6cebe2e57adc4f03.jpg

    Its been more re inforced now, just no pictures of it, tows both my quads on the trailer no problem! With a 12" hitch... lol.

    After that, I made a temp front bumper out of some 1.5x1.5 tubing
    IMG_1234_zps9aae23cf_04db32676ee2d402e6b467cab69d074af3f09eea.jpg

    Then bought myself a sundown sa 10 and made a box for it, ported tuned to 35 hz.
    IMG_1139_zpscd03c017_2671e23cba1d7729d307e9b5e48cfdbdda87754a.jpg

    Then i ordered my lift and tires, among other things.

    Ended up with,

    Eibach adjustable coilovers, 1" diff drop, ubolt flip kit, allpro 3" springs, 5150s in the back, BPV bracket, timbren bumpstops, and im sure im forgetting a few other things. I bought the trail gear front bumper and rock sliders (which ive hacked up to make my own with) and some 33x12.5x15 duratracs, and 15" procomp wheels, and some 1.25" allpro spacers. And i re did my exhaust with a magnaflow, and 2.5" tundra tailpipe made into a rear axle dump with a 3" tip. And some leds tails and smoked corners.
    Tails

    IMG_3438_zps492f80c6_a6ac0051bfc8d4ce3d037582398bf13b7796d7fb.jpg

    NOW for the interior stuff... picked up some CNC racing seats
    IMG_4068_zps1c8d5152_1bcc4cf5452be2e190f2897c1049b6f7aee5ccfc.jpg

    Got one in the truck
    IMG_4096_zpsc4352b9f_5f7b22bcff1fa7d5c06510d774183db1ac586b12.jpg

    Then both
    IMG_4246_zps958c7e85_578771f568a79fd1790e65cbf3272bccf4890fa4.jpg

    Now for the fun part... I had no seats in the back, so i decided to make good use of my now useless old front seats, and put them in the back. SO heres pictures of the whole process. Im so happy with how it all turned out!!

    Got everything cleared out, mocking up placement

    IMG_4302_zpsd14c399e_ddd18f762c46e8829664b43847df82ba96920412.jpg
    IMG_4304_zps463beb8c_2c666f13cc2af4d95d024927876f3709438207a1.jpg

    Getting the seats notched out and rails kind of in place

    IMG_4320_zps0cc80bb6_39966bb4eadf8e279b5810860e1569242e68fd3d.jpg

    IMG_4321_zpsa8986520_a371c05ac3a48e428a66f1b1fa11ea79c8a5a436.jpg

    First time with both seats in
    IMG_4324_zps02183607_7f1b91d8367a31fd75ab56cd56640dab4165922b.jpg

    Seat rail all tacked up, it mounts in all 6 factory locations.

    IMG_4326_zps3a5eadad_9c152517d758e75abdee47ae184d415028b70a1c.jpg

    And after that i forgot to take any more pictures.. whoops. But i decided i wanted a new sub box since my old one looked stupid in between the seats, so i started mocking things up.

    IMG_4398_zps567b75c4_202fd5aede81a800d1be54556f0212a7ec7c723c.jpg

    Stopped and got a tattoo for my grandma who passed away in march
    IMG_4535_zpsa9f5effe_e088f4c35f32d3692e0c6f8c0970537fab6421b0.jpg

    Back to the sub box, got it framed up
    IMG_4571_zps58324010_7c20d3ff63105a9246c36f2f712a1b4b4c007fd4.jpg

    Port in
    IMG_4588_zps8e6c815e_9c6f86fa351e320ed688fd6029af064521952b4d.jpg

    Finished!
    IMG_4604_zps9e81b7c5_fd276b8790e319333e4bfd958226c8168f0fad33.jpg

    Now I filled in all the screw holes, and cleaned up the corners with some filler.

    IMG_4767_zpsac25285a_a474f10fca0ec5e83af0992781cfecef0cf7b60e.jpg

    Once that dried, i sanded it all down and bedlined it

    IMG_4789_zpsc64a9a5f_cacca1cb4636acc7b75a7c889254199409ed2222.jpg

    IMG_4798_zpsbea567d1_b059935492fc2128addfbfd3472b0a660a57456e.jpg

    Fits in perfect, and sounds amazing. I love the look of it, finally have a function interior again!

    IMG_4795_zps57039da6_3e2e586ebcfcbb9ae5b94b6b86d4515f17340850.jpg

    Got seat belts out of a 99, and bolted them to the seats, me (6'2") and my girlfriend (5'6") both fit back there comfortably, and with headroom. I love it.


    And now for the random pictures ive taken along the way!!

    Some shots on the pipeline

    And thats all so far. Still planning some 35's among a few other things, but super happy with it for now!!

    I want to thank 45acp for helping me with the bumper last november, and giving me some inspiration with his truck to start mine!

    Re-located my rear shocks today, made the ride so much smoother, and way more articulation in the rear, also added the trail spikes to my bumper, and painted my corner lights black instead of chrome!

    I appreciate it. I'm going to be copying one on my buddy's jeep that he custom built. Should be sick!
