    First mod was a 6k HID kit
    then... SNUGTOP Camper shell

    That was it for quite a while as I gathered parts
    First item on the list was Dr coilovers & Camburg UCA's
    awhile later I picked up some DEAVER J66 leafs and pro comp rear shocks
    after doing some research i figured I might need the sway bar relocators so I picked those up on EBAY for 20bucks
    trying to decide what wheel/tire combo to go with, I realized that I wanted to keep the factory TX wheels and I picked up decent but used set of 295/75/16 BFG AT's.

    December came around and so did Christmas
    I got and installed my weathertech window visors and got 5% tint all around

    as of yesterday January 13th 2012 I had installed all of my gathered parts and this is how he sits now!!! Hope you like!!!

    Oh! Also added a 13" stubby factory looking antenna


    This was when I picked up the shell from Lake Havasu

    Of course I couldn't keep it white... I stopped by Maaco to get a quote and they told me something like 250 or something. I told them WTF you guys paint entire cars for that price LOL so I decided to get some primer and color match paint then some clear.

    WeatherTech window visors were very easy to install. They are very thin and I love em'!

    You can't even see them from the front because they're so thin...

    Well this is where I ended up just under a year after I bought the truck. I think it's pretty cool/funny reading one of my first posts on the site and then seeing where i'm at. Anyway... Comments are welcome good or bad... Thanks TW for all the info I gathered over the year so far!

    Not really a build thread but somewhat recent pics.. runs low 11s in the quarter

    Thanks! Couldn't justify paying almost 300 when I didn't plan on keeping it on all the time...

    your truck is clean! how much lift did you set your coilovers at? did you have to trim/cab mount chop to get the tires to fit without rubbing? (assuming it doesn't rub)

    I have the same rims and like the way you're set up

    Thanks! It's set at 3" and I haven't cut or trimmed anything. I do have very slight rubbing on the fwd fender well plastic. But I still have another inch to inch and a half before I even touch the cab mount :)
