    Original had a rev tek 3" lift kit. Plasti dipped my eagle alloys
    [​IMG]

    put on some 1.5 all pro spacers
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    put on some trail gear rock sliders
    [​IMG]

    painted rear bumper black
    [​IMG]

    added amp research bed extender
    [​IMG]

    found a good deal on craigslist for a used jeraco cap. $300, and had the thule load bars on top!
    [​IMG]

    Picked up some pro comp 7089 and ordered TG rear bumper
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    slowly getting rid of all the chrome!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    pulled off front brush guard and added the 5100 in the front with the eibach springs. Got rid of my revtek lift. Notice how high the front was riding compared to the back. Took out the rear block and added a 3"aal from tuff country. Now the back was sitting lower then the front!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    added clear corners, mesh grill, and replaced chrome handles with black handles
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    fixed the rear suspension by adding 5100 in the back getting my 3"block put back on. Now the rear is about an inch higher than the front. I figured with the weight of the cap and bumper it may settle down a little. When I pack the back with gear it almost levels out. Maybe a new rear leaf pack in the future with some shackles.

    Mounted hi lift jack and shovel for camping and wheeling.

    Had a chance to do some wheeling today. Here some pictures of the flex.

    Just ordered trail gear front bumper with light bar and a arb safari snorkel. Slowly my truck is coming along. Just need to order a winch. Any suggestions from personal use would be greatly appreciated.

    Fitted the bumper so I can measure the plates I wanted to add. Got the idea from box rocket!
    [​IMG]

    Getting it all painted up. Should be able to mount it tonight or tomorrow.

    Got the bumper all mounted up. These pictures have some automat central off road lights. Decided to get some Hella black magics instead.

    the truck looks awesome man, i have an almost the exact same set up except the grille and the DC. if you dont mind doing a little bit of trimming a superwinch lp 8500 or 10500 fit really well minus the engagement handle. otherwise its an awesome winch for the price. i mounted the solenoid under the hood since the controller cable is long enough to be used within the cab.(a little ghetto but once i get my cab mounted controls from 12voltguy itll be all good). but heads up, you wont be able to keep the lights in those spots with any winch and once you get it all mocked up i dont think that 7" hella will fit

    Hammerhead, I'm most def happy with the trail gear products. You can't beat the price for the sliders, rear bumper and front bumper. Adding the plates to the top gave it a nice look. Possibly mount an antenna in the future.

    I was looking at the super winch 8500 with the synthetic rope set up or the engo. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a winch. I was worried about the light tabs getting in the way but if need be I'll cut off the tabs and either relocate them directly on the light bar or just drill a hole in the plates I added on the bumper it self. Let me know when you have your winch all mocked up. I would like to see pictures of it. Man you should start a build page with all the mods you have done.
