    Below is a bit of a walk through memory lane. I included all the pics I could, but a lot of things were done without a free hand to work a camera :cool:

    The day I picked it up from the dealer
    [​IMG]

    Added Grillcraft (first real mod.. slippery slope)
    [​IMG]

    Light bars on the BAMF mount, headlights out for BHLM
    [​IMG]

    The day I decided the stock highway tires were not going to cut it. This tow strap broke and left a nice dent in the tailgate :(
    [​IMG]

    It stayed in this form for quite a while. BHLM complete and shorty antenna have been added.
    [​IMG]

    BlueSea aux fuse block and breaker, another breaker spot for future winch
    [​IMG]

    Outlets in the cab, wired into factory inverter.
    [​IMG]

    I decided it should be taller
    [​IMG]

    And I did some trimming
    [​IMG]

    New meats, US Offroad bumper, and XRC9.5 winch installed.
    [​IMG]

    Roof light bar on MCM Fab mounts

    Working on the Clazzio's

    Got the LED bar mounted on my roof today. I'm not totally sold on how it looks. Maybe I'll like it more once I get it wired and get to try it out. (waiting on switch in the mail)

    One of the members on here is making me a custom panel that goes in the space in front of the cup holders, below HVAC controls. First prototype needed a couple tweaks, but the final version should ship out this week. Stay tuned for pics?

    Got the rear Clazzio's in. The leather look really adds some class to the interior and the heated seats will be real nice once I finish wiring them. Pics when it's not so dark.

    looks great! how complicated was the light bar roof install? i'd be curious to see what a difference that one makes when you've got it wired
