    How the truck looks as of today:

    It didnt take long for me to start modding the truck

    List of mods:

    First thing i did was buy a k&n cold air intake and satoshi grill mod

    Then i bought a bullbar and a couple light for some gnar offroading:cool:


    One of my buddies got some HID's for his ranger so i picked some up too
    [​IMG]
    I bought some 5100's and new tires n wheels. I thought i would b happy after that haha, this website makes want want want

    I went out to stoddard wells and realized after riding with a couple buddies what i wanted for my truck (even if it took a year or so)
    [​IMG]
    My girlfriends dad runs a performance exhaust shop and hooked me up with a free magnaflow exhaust

    I picked up a set of fiberwerx front fenders and color matched them
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I realized LT was not in my budget, atleast until im getting some decent hours
    and have some coin saved :p So i went with the icon stage 3 set up :cool:

    The bullbar wasnt doin it and i saw that anthony (shocktaco) was selling one of his bumpers, so i hit him up and he delivered it me.
    [​IMG]

    Got my avid offroad sliders all tacked and fitted
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    unfortunately the bumper was kind of butchered by me and my dad, it was built for a 2wd so i had to make it fit, although it is a nice looking bumper the structural integrity was sacrificed so i'm having a local shop fab one, ill have pics most likely on friday

    I dont have any pics right now haha, when i get my truck back ill take a bunch, so far i only have the icon uca and the 2.5" extended travel coil over, they are a huge difference from the 5100's but i dont have much to compare with. Icon is supposed to making a new rear resi shock to go along with my coilover up front, so im just waiting on that. I also have a set of avid offroad sliders sitting at my dads shop all tacked together, i just havent had the time to get them on haha, i just got back from san diego and im broke cuz i just payed for my classes :/
