    found a really good deal on a ipod adaptor. As soon as it comes in I'm making a nano dock in the blank spot where the 4x4 switch would be

    Good start to the build! The bilsteins and locker are definately a good thing to have on the top of your list, along with the tires. Those three things and you'll be pretty well off. Good Luck and keep the mods coming!

    BTW, ive got a buddy who has the exact same truck as you in Radiant Red and after he did bilsteins and tires it made a world of difference.

    see Build page for details.

    That is sick. I want my water to glow blue too. :D I'd wire them to the dimmer and a switch... That way, they're always on when the headlights are on, but I could always kill them with the switch or dim them if I wanted to get some clandestine night-time truck-nookie goin on. yeah.
