    The day I got her
    [​IMG]
    Threw in some Weathertech floor liners
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Decided I had to be cool so I threw a bull bar on
    [​IMG]
    Next to come was a satoshi grill, some projectors, and xd addicts
    [​IMG]
    Soon I got tired of just hearing the intake and added a Flowmaster American Thunder Cat Back Exhaust
    [​IMG]
    I eventually took the shell off and decided to lift it with bilstein 5100s set at 1.75 in the front and 1.5 blocks in the rear
    [​IMG]
    Since I didn't have any extra place for storage, I bought a toolbox from Tractor Supply. It sits nearly flush with the bed.
    [​IMG]
    Mounted a maglight on the driver's seat
    [​IMG]
    Decided to try out some Wet Okole seat covers
    [​IMG]
    Tried my hand in metal fabrication and built a set of rock sliders
    [​IMG]
    I decided to put herculiner on them
    [​IMG]
    Next I built a tiregate with my uncle
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    My parents bought me a new license plate when I earned my Eagle
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Found a deal on a farm jack so I made some mounts for the bed rails
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I still have a little room for the pooch
    [​IMG]
    Went to pick up a kayak with my dad
    [​IMG]
    Then came some glassworks fenders
    [​IMG]
    Didn't want to drill a hole in the fenders, so I made a mounted for the radio and cb antennas
    [​IMG]
    Found a place for the Garmin
    [​IMG]
    This meant it was time to build a new front bumper
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I couldn't afford to get the fenders painted, so I decided to give it a try (not a perfect match, but it works for now)
    [​IMG]
    I didn't want to drill a hole in my fenders, so I made a mount for the radio and cb antenna for the bed rail
    [​IMG]
    Then I decided to build a back bumper to tie it in with the front and some reverse leds
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Somewhere around this time I wired up some oval trailer lights to my taillights and turn signals
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I scored a sweet deal on a blitzpro led bar from a member on here and mounted it on my bumper
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I threw some Allpro wheel spacers on to bring the tires nearly flush with the fenders
    [​IMG]
    Finally got to drive her in the snow
    [​IMG]
    Cleaned up the retrofit
    [​IMG]
    After fixing my temperature gauge/compass multiple times I decided to replace it.
    image.jpg

    Had a tree fall on my truck so I did what any logical person would do and started the LT build on the rear



    Had to wait a little longer on the bypasses to show up so I decided to build a new front bumper




    Then these beauties showed up

    So the bed cage started to take shape

    Went to flex it all out and check the bypass mounting location with my dad



    I made some mounts to set the traction boards on the tool box

    And this is how it looks at the moment. There is still quite a bit of work to be done, but its drivable for the time being.

    The tire gate needed a new paint job so I took it off, threw the tailgate on, and strapped the tire down to the bed rack.
