    OK so my truck is already "built" but after deciding to keep it and fix it now that I got a pretty good paying job. I thought I would make this to show the progress over the next year. starting tomorrow.

    the laundry list:
    -fix all electrical and mechanical issues
    -front/rear armor
    -shell
    -roof rack
    -35inch tires
    -new rims
    -new/better sound system
    -better amps
    -some minor interior changes
    -drop the lift to the 6 inch fabtech
    -maybe retro fit (haven't decided yet)


    ^thats most of it. tomorrow I'm taking it to a shop to get the speedometer and all the small electrical issues fixed because I got tired of wasting hours upon hours trying to figure it out myself and coming up short.

    ^this is what it looks like right now

    got it back from the shop today and 180 bucks later found out that I need a new gauge cluster.

    also have a set of tail light guards coming in tomorrow hopefully

    Looks like a beast with those 38's, but 35's and a new lift should be more practical

    well decided to get crazy today and took out the carpet in my bed and the top off! and cleaned the carpet and washed out the bed. then decided to keep it off a while and see how I like it. doesn't look much different but I like how it looks so far

    I bet it's a beast in 4x4 Lo with all that ground clearance. You should take it to Uwharrie sometime.
