    Heres my shitty truck. Enjoy.

    The obligatory "Hey look at my new truck" picture....a couple days after buying it.
    [​IMG]

    Mounting my magnetic Wilson 1000 on the roof. Pulled out the headliner and ran coax from the third brake lite, down the passenger apillar, and to the ashtray where my CB is.

    First time "legit" wheelin. Fall 09 Uwharrie meet.
    [​IMG]

    Pre sliders....brushed up against a tree. First dent :p
    [​IMG]

    Post sliders...brushed up against a different tree. Sliders didnt help at all! First major dent. Also broke the paint :D
    [​IMG]

    Stripped down the sliders, primed em. Also painted the part that broke from the last pic
    [​IMG]

    Runt of the litter...Spring 10 Uwharrie Meet.
    [​IMG]

    Wellsville with OHTTORA. Went thru a "puddle" a lil too close behind the guy infront of me...his waves didnt settle yet and went over my hood. Can kinda see how deep it was...almost 31" :p
    [​IMG]

    More of Wellsville with OHTTORA. That's RCBS on the left :)
    [​IMG]

    ...more Wellsville. Probably my favorite pic of my truck.
    [​IMG]

    Doin a burnout with all 4 tires :eek:
    [​IMG]

    Oops. Killed my alternator. I knew Tundras were good for something! (jk ben :anonymous:)
    [​IMG]

    20mm ammo cans mounted in the bed. Now my cab isnt full of junk :cool:
    [​IMG]

    4xInnovaions rear class 3 toob bumper. Previous one was all bent up and rusting, so it was time for something that can actually handle some abuse.
    [​IMG]


    Sorry for wasting your time.


    Plans are to work my ass off during school so I can finish with armor and upgraydd my suspension whenever I need tires next, because 31s with a lift looks stupid. Maybe I'll go straight to 35s :D

    Might have to take you up on that. I got some tools (just a basic 150pc of which I can use like 30) craftsman set that I'm building as I need tools. I'm going to miss my powertools tho :(

    I was originally going to buy a truck tent (tent that fits over the bed) but I found the Bestop for $200 off a guy who sold his tacoma. Figured for about the same price I can have something that stands up to high speed driving...so basically whenever I'm sleeping in the bed I dont have to "pack up camp." Just hop in the drivers seat and go.

    I knew that would work :spy:

    4wd + LSD will be fine for most I'm guessing. There are going to be a few groups going out...stockish (like me :p), built, and buggies. You can always take a strap :p

    i say sell the truck, get a fiesta, and be happy with life.......plus a fiesta would do less damage if it rolled on top of me.

    I like your truck man!

    I wanted to share a tip I learned about your cb antenna. I have a Wilson on my roof as well. Alot of my trucks suggest drilling a small portion of the rear glass door or doing the 3rd brake light route. I didnt want to do anything I could take back and also wanted it easly removed. There are drain plugs in your compartments under the rear bench (one has the spare tire jack, factory tire tools, ect.) You can simply run your coax down inbetween the cab and bed and up through than drain plug. I am running a Cobra 75, which has all the controls in the mic and a seperate box for the radio itself that is hidden. I mounted the box in the compartment and ran my power wire up under the carpet. The only thing visibile from within the cab is my mic cord running up through the carpet, its a very clean and easily removable install.

    I have scratched my head for a while determining the best way to run the cable, I just wanted to throw it out there.
