    The upcoming pictures are from over the years of all the changes my truck has been through from the beginning.

    2013-2014

    At this moment I'm hating what my truck is looking like since it doesn't have all the proper parts on the truck to make everything look correct.
    2015-2016

    Not much changed from this year. This is the year I moved from Kansas to Hawaii so I wasn't giving her too much love that year.

    Great looking build, just out of curiosity why did you chose to do fenders and a bumper before suspension?

    I was new to the world of building your truck and thought it was an amazing idea... so it backfired horribly haha. Did absolutey no research and had no help from anyone...

    Learned from my mistakes.

    Looks great! Was thinking about blacking out my rims like yours before you got the new ones. Thanks for the pictures. I definitely will be doing it at some point now.

    The most impressive part to me is the fact that you have built this on a military paycheck budget. Just kidding man, the truck looks awesome, the white bumper is sweet. I have never seen a plate bumper painted to match like that before.
