    Oldest pic I have, back in July of '09 in angel fire NM:

    [​IMG]

    First I painted the stock wheels black and the centers silver.

    Then came the deck plate mod:
    [​IMG]

    Then the Dynomax Super Turbo part# 17748
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A few days later I decided to start blacking out the chrome on the bumpers and grille, so I ordered a black grille of ebay and painted the bumpers.

    In the process of paining the front bumper, I found that the truck had been in a minor fender bender. Oh well.:rolleyes:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    done with the front:
    [​IMG]

    Next I moved on to the back. I painted the bumper then added some herculiner in the area by the license plate because I step there a lot.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's it for now.

    Here's some more pics in no particular order:

    Thanks! The deck plate mod is definitely one of my favorite mods so far.

    All of those pics were taken in NM. The snow ones are in the Sandia mountains, first one is in Angel Fire NM, and the rest are either at my house or out in the "Puerco" (20 miles from my house).

    Your build is comming along great as well. I'll be following it. :thumbsup:

    Thank you.

    Here are a few links to some info on the deck plate mod. You basically cut a hole in your air box and replace it with a deck plate so that you can re-close the hole if you will be going through any kind of deep water. It is very easy and adds about 5 hp, plus a great sound in the upper RPM's:D

    Got the diff breather mod done

    [​IMG]

    And me being partly retarded, put the breather right where the gas door latch is. So some time with the dremel to remove some of the excess metal on the little clip thing solved the problem.

    Very nice build, I like the blacked out bumbers. How do you like the Dynomax superturbo? Is it deeper sounding? and any Hp gains?

    Thanks.
    According to my butt dyno, there was a small HP increase and the sound is great. It is pretty quiet compared to something like a flowmaster but its perfect for me. Definitely deeper sounding.

    I know, I need to wash the truck then I'll paint them. I also need to install all the new suspension so I can just make a day of it.
