    I started designing one pricing up the pvc, nozzles, water pump, holding tank, etc. Figured I could set it out, turn it on and slowly drive over it to get all the crap off the underside. Realized it was going to cost more than I wanted to spend so dropped it.

    Can someone propose to the moderators that we get our own state mentioned in the Region forums. It's a pain to always look for other Virginian's in this forum!

    It was for the loaner not the truck.

    I picked up one of these up during prime days: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QHTCWBB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It works suprisingly well. I think @boogie3478 has one as well.

    Be weary at Microcenter unless you know exactly what you're getting into... they're 100% commission and will talk circles around you trying to push you into things.

    A little status update on the truck - 1" body lift completed, +4" adv glass all around and a semi custom 6 point with sparco r100s and harnesses.

    Now time for new bumpers, different wheels and a 1 off wrap. Also time to take about 8 leaf springs out of the back.

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    Moving the front bumper mod to top of the list. Almost got my second deer with the Taco this morning. Plus the three fresh strikes I saw coming home. Anyone know of vendors offering discounts right now? Or veteran discounts on bumpers?

    I’m sure there’s quite a few, but the only one I know for sure based off personal experience is mobtown who offers 10%.

    Yeah, Microcenter used to be nice and was a place to hang out and chat with the geeks; now its some utter bullshit and the sales people are quick to put on their "salesmen stickers" on all the products. We had experienced a major site failures some years ago and I had to go to Microcenter with my office assistant to grab Switches galore, like we are talking 3000$ worth of switches of various sizes to get my backup site running. When I walked into the store I told her (74 years old, doesnt wanna retire and still plays Tennis) that we will act like robbers: Put the cart next to the shelfs and just drop everything into it and walk up front.

    While doing that move with the two carts some salesman came up and started putting stickers on it while we did all the work. I told the manager and the cashier to not scan any of these salesmen stickers and then whipped out my tax exempt form at the end as a new customer.

    Salesman got fired for that action.

    I just pull the stickers off as they tag them. There's only one dude I'd let tag things he didn't help me with and that's because he always had my back on stuff with discounts and holding things he wasn't supposed to hold.

    Worst case you can probably find someone around here to give you a hand. Second worst case you've got a few of us who can walk you through stuff but honestly, it's not at all difficult anymore... nothing like when I built my first in the 90's and there were jumpers fucking everywhere.

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    It's really not that hard. I hadn't built one for years and the technology had changed. My step-kid bought parts and I put that one together and I just put mine together. And as said, there's plenty of folks here to help if you get stuck.

    One thing that may not occur to you: don't forget an OS and a way to get it onto your hard drive. I bought all my bits and put it all together and fired it up. Then realized I had forgotten something. Had to run all the way over to Fairfax for the OS and drive.

    This is the only post in the last three pages I can understand, so I'll reply to it.

    I've got a chrome OR bumper I just took off. Bumpers in good shape, hitch is a little crusty buy fully functional.

    Rear HC Swingout: Maybe.

    Custom Front: Maybe, but less so.

    Hit me on the hip.

    J/K I don't have a pager anymore. DM would be better.

    Steel bumpers are always a good option since you can take a hit and hammer it back in position, but make sure the company you buy from (as an example of having them powder coat) does quality powder coat. I bought a $1800 bumper from a company before and the powder coat flaked off within the first winter like sheets of paper (ExpOne). Go with whoever specializes in their craft. Not someone who tries to bring everything in house. My example of good powder coating and specializing is BudBuilt in NC. Whoever he uses for powder....is awesome!
    The other option for weight is aluminum (I like Demello) and have purchased them in the past. You really never have to worry about it although there is no hammering back aluminum....

    So some co-workers have suggested an office camping trip. Yous guys have ideas for sites that are reachable by regular cars? I was thinking Switzer? We're open to area. Most folks would be coming from MD.
