    Ditch the steps and get sliders. Under body armor. Bumpers. Winch. Compressor. Lights. Just check out the "what have you done today" thread and you will go broke.

    Oh, and tint that bad boy!!

    Oh look, another mod....

    Pfft, you aren't cool unless you have raptor lights and a hood skewp! Okay, I don't believe that at all. I'm just here to stir the pot. Nice truck buddy! You should add some more custom mud-pin striping.

    Eventually ill ditch the steps, picked em up for $50 so can't complain there. I have the OEM skid plate but it's getting pretty beat up and will need replacement soon. I have a heavy duty air compressor that I use for airing up and down.

    Speaking of bumpers anyone have recommended bumpers that don't cost 2k..

    Depends on what you want to use it for. If it is for looks, the BA or DV8 hybrids aren't too bad for holding a winch and looking pretty. If you will be using it to slide over rocks or around trees, you'll need to shell out the cash. C4, BAMF, Coastal...all good stuff.

    This is the bumper I have, including installation (I paid someone to do it because I couldn't forgive myself if I cut into my truck), it cost me just over $1000.

    Fair on the cutting part... Nice truck! I'm looking for something that'll give me more clearance than that. I've seen posts about DV8 before

    I have the DV8 and have since took it off and replaced it with the Ironman RAID full size bumper. The DV8 was flimsy when using it to slide a rock or shelf to the skids and I about ripped it off when using the recovery points but I gained a decent approach angle with it. The Ironman is sturdy and has great recovery points but I lost approach angle.

    Paid $1300 for it with the light bar and cube lights. I added the rock lights for another $80. The white cubes are ran with the fog light switch on the stalk. Rest are ran with CH4x4 switches in the center panel.

    The recovery points are super solid but kill approach angle. Looking at ways to put a soft shackle to the winch mount plate and ditch the points. Still need to cut the front bumper filler panels but I'm scared. haha
