    Yes i know it is a body lift....


    the first thing i did to it was put a K&N cold air intake
    [​IMG]


    The next thing i did was change my rims to black
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    After that i put some coverking seat covers in.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next i decided i wanted to start blacking out the chrome so i started small and did the logo first

    [​IMG]

    ill post more pictures when i get all the chrome done

    if you guys have any suggestions hit me up! :D


    Took my truck mudding at a buddies farm. My truck did great, the rear diff lock is a life saver haha!! When you guys go through alot of mud do you have trouble staring for the next couple days?

    [​IMG]

    Got the tool box installed
    [​IMG]
    I put a half inch of foam padding on the bottom and covered it with part of a moving blanket, it reduces almost all of the rattling.
    [​IMG]

    Took a trip up to four peaks. On the way back my upper balljoint completely popped off, like the nut was stripped. the funny thing is i had just had those replaced at 4wheelparts. needless to say i was pissed.

    The camping rack works great and holds two spares!

    fir all the chrome trimmimg i also started blacking it out. best results, dipthe trims in bleach for a few days, that will eat the fake chrome of down to the bare plastic and i even sand blasted it just so the black paint would grab better to the trims.

    I don't know if you're from the south but mud and AZ aren't normally used in the same sentence. And the few times when there is some mud it's a nasty ass goo that's basically the equivalent of wet cement... once it hardens gl hf gg no re thx.
