    Well just like the title says, this is my attempt at a build thread. (disclaimer- I am in no way a professional photographer nor journalist, don't want to be. I know the pics aren't all that great, but its what I've got so hope you enjoy) feel free to post a comment whether you like the thread or truck or just dont like anything, or maybe you have an idea/suggestion, cuz I would love to hear it all. Anyway, on with the thread...

    How it began -
    well I got an '11 dcsb sr5 4x4 on Nov 19 and picked it up from the dealer on Nov 21.
    this is pretty much how it looked straight off the lot
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    that weekend i installed my flowmaster cat back system on it.
    then a few weeks later i was able to put my lift and new headlights on. I went back to the OME 885's with the nitro 90000 shocks and LR UCA's then 1.5"aal with the OME N182 rear shocks. the headlights are just factory "smoked" trd lights. While i was swapping lights i went and put in my nokya yellow fog light bulbs and a set of PIAA Intense white headlight bulbs
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A HUGE AND SPECIAL THANKS TO TacoAlaMode and SuthrnTaco for the help with the lift install and light swap.

    Then Christmas came and I got a few presents, one from my wife and one from myself,
    [​IMG]
    (this is the one from myself Thanks Dustin from FN wheels)
    I decided before i messed with the stuff in those boxes i needed to get what little body armor i already had installed so i went to a buddy's house and welded on my all pro sliders
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    (pics are of my buddy welding not me)

    After that i just got busy mounting everything, my bullbar and PIAA 520atp's, my weathertech bug deflector (my Christmas present from my wife and a must for AL highway driving), set of duratracs on my new wheels and the toolbox i got from Davtopgun
    so this is how she sits for now and prob for a while, wife says ive spent enough money and time on the truck for a while.....

    Nice!!! I love the wheels, but if you find them missing one day it wasn't me lol!! But a suggestion I think if you de-badge or black out the emblems it would look awesome.

    265's and even though everyone has always said 265's will fit stock no rubbing or trimming this is the second truck i have had them on and both trucks have had rubbin issues up front. first one was on stock rims with same lift and had to get a set of spidertrax and this one rubs the mudflaps in revers starting at about 3/4 turn and will rub full turn in forward if hitting any kind of bump. no prob ill get around to taking the mudflaps off someday.

    and pnichols i am very pleased with the sliders i decided to weld them on this truck cuz i wasnt a fan of drilling holes in my frame on the last truck and dont plan on gettin rid of this truck anytime. when demodding the other truck you could actually see a tiny bit of frame flex when the sliders were off and it was on jackstands on the frame. if you do weld them on just cut out u-shaped areas where the bolts would go in the sides of the l-brackets and weld around those and the front leg and at the back of the l-bracket then it is plenty strong

    went ahead and had to take off the front mudflaps this weekend, couldn't stand the rubbing every time i backed out of my driveway any longer. also spent a little time last week working on the all pro ubolt flip kit i got from a member on here. decided to give it my own touch.
    [​IMG]
    modified and cut some stock bump stops and welded them to the plate for the flip kit so i could still have bumpstops on the back without having to give so much for the timbrens. then i decided to spray it all with bedliner to protect the welds and metal that was exposed as well as blend everything in together so it wont be quite so obvious under the truck.
    [​IMG]

    hopefully this weekend or so i will have a chance to install them as well as the front SS brakelines and rear extended SS brake lines.

    well went ahead and tried to install the all pro ubolt flip kit last night but ran into one problem after another. (man are those some strong bolts, only burnt up saw blades) gotta get them cut by a chop saw first then will put them on another day! but while i was tinkering around on the backside of the truck went ahead and installed the stainless steel rear extended brake lines. also got the satoshi put on and the holes drilled for the redline strut system on the hood (thanks again tacoalamode, gotta wait to do final install for the brackets to get back from powder coat) then finished the night off by putting on a redline strut EZdown system for the tailgate. hopefully pics of the grill to come in a little bit.

    now when i get a chance i will hopefully be able to do the front stainless brake lines and rear diff breather mod along with the ubolt flip kit (may have to wait a couple weeks and just do it at the next mod meet)

    If you're cutting bolts, be careful how hot you get them. If they get too hot you'll alter the heat treating and make them brittle. That's not a bolt you want to snap.

    and here is the end result.

    think i will be much happier with this bar and light setup than i was with the bullbar.
