    Well, here is my simple build. My truck is my DD and only vehicle, so after much debate, for the time being, I am staying away from a lift, or any other larger mod that is more dedicated to off road performance. However, I still do need a bit more performance than stock, especially with regards to protection. Primary use will be for hunting, fishing, camping, and general exploring throughout VA, NC, and SC.

    Specs:

    2013 DCSB, TRD OR, Pyrite Mica

    Complete: 265/75/16 Cooper AT3
    Sirius/XM Satellite radio

    Planned:

    Betterbuilt low profile slimline toolbox (this weekend)
    Diff breather relocation (this weekend)
    Salex Console Organizer (this weekend)
    2nd Front Tow Hook
    Budbuilt 4 piece skid plate combo (Aluminum or 1/8th steel)
    Avid bolt on sliders, light bar, and rear bumper protector

    Recovery/sustainment kit in tool box/bed:

    Pioneer Gear(E-tool, hatchet, collapsible pick-ax)
    Wyeth-Scott power puller with amsteel blue line
    3"x8' treesavers x 2
    Recovery Chains
    SnatchBlock
    D Rings/Shackles
    Tow Straps
    50' Winch extension Cable
    Hi-lift
    Rear hitch recovery point
    Survival Bag (complete)
    Rotopax X2 W/ Bed rail mounts (size TBD)

    Nothing too exciting, but it's still fun to have a vehicle that I can personalize again. In a few years when I can hopefully afford a small DD, then it will be time to build her into a real trail rig :D

    And just got my Avid bolt on sliders. Fantastic work and customer service, I couldn't be happier. I covered them with duplicolor spray on bedliner. It turned out pretty well, and provides the non-slip surface and textured finish I wanted. The finish doesn't look great, but that was mostly due to my lack of painting skills, not the product (I had to do it in doors and don't have a garage). It's good enough for me.

    I also managed to get my hands on a recovery kit and a 3 ton power puller for my tool kit. Budbuilt 4 piece skids are ordered and should be here sometime in August.

    How she sits today.
