    Well sence some people make a thread of there truck imma put mine to :) this is my build... I got it with the lift already, it has a trail master lift,yes me know TM lift sucks, but its work really well for me :D and love it.
    Its in a way better condition sense i got it, problems that it had was: knock sensor had to be replaced, alternator was bad, replaced rear shox, rear shaft was bend and leaking gear oil, spark plugs were really bad...replaced, tires were shot. and thats about it... all the work I've done by myself. :D

    Updated, 9/26/12: last month i was street racing :burnrubber: and one of my ball joints decided to give out....had to be towed back home :( Balljoint broke,CV axle broke off, tie rod was gone and the lift broke. Took awhile but replaced everything with new parts, had to take of the old lift off and put on a newer lift on... fun and learning experience.

    Bought and extra transmission, and the shaft's Center cardian, going to buy a transfer case soon, and saving up for an extra engine.

    6inch lift, trailmaster lift
    33x12.50/15 Duratrac's
    fabtech angle tire mount
    magnaflow
    1.5 inch wheel spacers
    Installed the quick release mudflaps to keep the popo's happy :spy:
    custom moon roof
    TRD Supercharger

    how it sat when i got it

    [​IMG]

    Had the fabtech tire mount but upgraded... keep scrolling down to find out why

    those lift kits suck cause they replace the upper control arm and if that extra strut deal wears out and leaks good luck finding another one. then you have to find a new upper control arm and lift kit if you ever want to get it back to normal. Pics of the supercharger?

    why have an extra tranny... because i bought it for 100 dollars with 80k miles on it. and because my truck has 185k miles on it and a S/C, and alot of people on ttora told me that with that many miles on it and a S/C that tranny goes out quicker. And the transfer case, because im getting it for 100 bucks too

    was the moon roof a kit? i have been thinking about getting one but kinda worried about install. I was hoping i could find some kind of manual sliding moon roof without a cover (on the inside of the cab) i figured that would help keep install simple and keep the moon roof fairly cheap. I tried looking online for like a "cut a hole in your roof and drop this bitch in kit" but i cant seem to find ANYTHING!!! so if you could offer and help on that please do!!

    What happened to your mileage when you did the S/C? Did you add the 7th injector as well?

    Love the sunroof..mine came with one from factory but its essentially the same design.
