    I am relatively new to the forum. Only made a couple of posts, and just started trying to post pics yesterday. Thought I would post a couple of my truck. Nowhere near the caliber of most trucks on this site but I am happy with it so far. Here she is as of about 2 months ago:

    I have a 3 inch Pro Comp Lift, 17 inch Moto Metals, and 255 Goodyear Silent Armors. I have blacked out the badges. Since taking these pics, I have coated the rear bumper and lower valance with Plasti-Dip (take it easy on me guys), painted the chrome grill surround black, and done the Black Headlight Mod. I plan on redoing the BHLM and possibly tackling the Satoshi grill myself.

    I don't know if you would really classify it as a build. I started getting into the cheap DIY mods since viewing this site and have just been enjoying making this truck my own.

    Any thoughts, ideas, or comments are welcomed. Thanks.



    Updated pics from 5/1/11:

    Here it is with the lower valance blacked out, rear bumper Plasti-dipped, and the BHLM. Tried painting around the emblem on the grill color matched but it is kind of hard to see. Doesn't really stand out. Thinking about finding a grille assembly online somewhere to attempt the Satoshi but can't decide if I want to try and color match it or leave it black.

    Sorry about the pics. Taking them with my cell phone. Any ideas on what mod to do next?

    Wish list:
    Satoshi grille
    Avid or Westin for the front
    New Seat Covers
    New wheels and tires...eventually (Got about 30,000 miles left on those tires)
    New exhaust

    Mine is blacked out. It is just hard to see in the pics. Can't figure out how to make them bigger. Took them with my phone.

    Yea, I know! I am going to work on the bigger pics. These came off of my phone. I like the long beds. Debated about that when I was buying mine but decided on the short instead.

    whats your wheel and tire setup? I like the look of yours. What size spacers? And you have spindles right? How much lift are you running exactly and what did it cost you?

    Wheels are stock 16s painted black with chrome accents. wrapped with bfg km2s 285/75r16. Running 1 1/4" spacers. Yes to spindles(total chaos) 3 1/2" + billies at 2.5 so around six in front and add a leaf and 3 inch block with rear 5100s till I can splurge on a allpro leaf pack or something.
    Better shot of wheels to show. Crappy pic though from phone

    Too close to TSUN! I have had to take two graduate classes there for work and it was more than I could stand writing them a check!

    MORE COWBELL!

    They sure as heck cashed my check!

    My 9 year old loves it when they show that clip before the football games on the big screen! He goes into his "I got the fever and the only thing that will cure it is MORE COWBELL!"
