    The Fish Taco

    As she sits today....

    But in the beginning...

    Here's the earliest pic that I can find of her when all I had done was put some BFG AT's on with no lift. No other mods were done at this point.

    2006 Indigo Ink Pearl access cab 4x4 Sport - bought new in late '06 as a birthday present to myself

    [​IMG]

    Next up.... spacer lift so I could fit my BFG KM2's. Also threw in a Kenwood DNX-6960 head unit so I could watch movies, hook up the iPod, have in-dash GPS, etc.

    [​IMG]

    Also added a machined aluminum grill set because I was set on having the machined finish on everything instead of chrome.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Installed my CB behind the console, added a 150w PA system, and wired up a switch so I could flip it on and yell at bad drivers without having to reach behind. The switch powers up both the CB and the PA amp and is lit so I don't forget to shut it off and kill my battery.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got tired of the rims and the grill being machined, so I decided to black them out with lots of scuffing, primer and Duplicolor wheel paint.

    Then, the accident happened... hardly visible from the pics, but I got a fat check from the other driver's insurance company. Time to spend!

    [​IMG]

    After getting the tailgate fixed and the hitch removed, I decided to make some changes with the large chunk of cash I had left over.

    I had been eyeballing the All-Pro bumpers for some time and really liked the look of them. I don't go smashing my truck into boulders and deer, so I felt this bumper was right for my uses and I really liked the angles that the AP has. Conveniently there was a group buy going on, so I picked up a front and rear bumper plus the sway bar friendly IFS skid plate. Next up was to add sliders, so I picked those up local from Avid Off-Road. Brandon at Avid did the thermal coating on the sliders and bumpers in one shot so the textures all matched. Decided to go out of pocket and add the Warn M8000 winch before I installed the bumper so I wouldn't have to deal with it later. Also threw in PIAA 510 driving lights and hooked them up to the fog light switch.

    It was also time to ditch that spacer lift, so I decided to pull the trigger on new suspension. 5100's to the front and rear, new Light Racing UCA's, and Old Man Emu 885 coils to get her going. Already had a 2" AAL for the rear springs.

    Got her aligned, did a headlight restoration, and here's how she sat:

    [​IMG]

    The oil on the ground is from the Jeep Grand Cherokee that parks next to me all the time LOL

    [​IMG]

    Finally after over a month of having a naked light hoop, I pulled the trigger on the new LightForce Genesis 210mm lights. Here she sits as of today:

    Thanks!

    I decided against the side extensions because I didn't really care for the look from the profile. Plus, I saw one of them get hit in person and it pushed right into the fender causing body damage, anyways. So, I just saved the money.

    I got in on a group buy in March so it was discounted. I think everything shipped came to about $1800 which included front bumper with light hoop and fairlead, back bumper, and IFS skid. Shipping was about $300 of that total. I had my bumpers powdercoated locally to save the $$ and the risk of shipping damage, too.

    Oh yea, I was kinda worried about it...but 2 weekend ago (our long weekend) some drunken idoit slammed into my truck (into the bumper/side pieces) and was amazed, it didn't bend, move nothing, the quad literally bounced off sideways, all it did was scuff the top coat of the powdercoat! Thought I'd share!

    Good to know. At least they will be a pretty east add-on if I decide to go with them in the future. For right now, I am saving for those new Lightforce Genesis lights to hang on that naked light hoop :rolleyes:

    Looks great man... but you don't have a lot of spaced gap on the AP front... You haven't had issues with it pushing the fenders up and bending them yet? I know mine would without the gap I have.

    So far it's been perfect and I've whomped it a few times pretty good. I have a 1/8" gap above the top of the bumper all the way across (perfectly level) even after romping it and with no paint touching at all. I hit my driver's side tire up into my fender well twice and popped a couple fender clips before, but nothing happened between the bumper and fender.
