    Looking good Ryan. Ur truck is awesome man. I like how u have it set up on the outside. And i'll have to say the best spot IMO to put ur CB antenna. Ive got mine mounted in the same place too. Them bumpers look good man for u makin them yourself. I see u go u some projectors for the truck. I got me some but thought i ordered the right kit but apparently not. so i sent them back to TRS and their sending me the right kit this time round. By the way where at in NC do u live? Im here in Caldwell County if u know where thats at. if u get time let me know whay u think of my build if u want man.

    camper looks good man. now the next thing is put u some racks on the top and ur set. what size LED bar did u go with Ryan? im thinkin about gettin some of them rigid industries spot lights for the bumper. but first i would have to sell my hella 500s. IMO the led's matches the projectors the best. ur projectors are bad ass dude. i just go mine put on about a week ago and to regret any thing about em. how close r u to Lenoir NC? r u from around Asheville?
