    Thanks. Yea they completely changed the look of the truck. I wasn't expecting it to be that dramatic of a change but I love them lol.

    Here are some pics of my truck from this past weekend. We went to Catahoula Recreation Area in Sicily Island. I had a blast and got to try out my sliders :woot:

    My recovery gear and synthetic line came in today. I'm just waiting on the hawse fairlead.

    Also I made a hi-lift base, a couple weeks ago, out of some scrap metal laying around at work. I used it on the sicily island trip and it worked great. Here is some pics of it.

    Damn that base looks like a torture device.

    I'm liking the innovation though.

    Thanks lol. I was trying to make sure it doesn't slip when using it offroad. I kind of went overboard with the spikes but it works great lol. I also made the base twice the size of the factory base to give it a better footprint. I'm going to find some way to attach a piece of rubber to the bottom of the factory base so that it won't slip as easy on concrete or asphalt.

    Sean,

    How's your rear plate light holding up? I'm still on the fence on what to do with mine and I'm not sure if should go bolt LED's or the "flip" style

    So far its doing great. It actually has lasted longer than I expected, as flimsy and cheap as it felt when I put it on.

    Updated pics and mod list in the op. Pics are with the painted fogs, retrofits, sliders, and rear LEDs. My next thing is I have some clear corners ordered and I have to figure out how to open them up to paint them the same as my headlights. The ones that are in now are black but do not match and it is driving me crazy. I starting collecting parts for my OBA and I've also been thinking about getting the vision x rock lights, but not sure yet.

    A little update. We went back to sicily island this weekend. I should have the videos downloaded in a couple days and pics should be posted up soon also. I broke a cv joint and didn't have a spare or the tools to change it so I just limped it home like it was. After I got home I got the axle out and ordered another one. I should have it back going tomorrow. Other than that one thing I had a great time.

    I also got some ammo cans on my way home. Some old man was selling them out of the back of his truck on the side of the road, so I stopped and picked up a couple.

    Truck's fixed. Time to clean it and see what all damage is being covered up by the mud. I'm a little afraid lol.

    Thanks. They are an awesome pulling tire. I definitely recommend these tires to anyone. The mileage is decent, I've gotten in 40-45k range with them and they are about ready to be changed. But for them to be wore out they still pull pretty good.

    In the process of cleaning the truck right now, the lazy way lol. I put it out in the rain with sprinkler underneath and moved the sprinkler around every hour or so. Oh and if anyone wants to see a few pics of our wheeling trip this past weekend, you can see them here.
