    I found an old picture of my truck the other day and realized how much it has changed in the year that I've owned it. I totaled my G35 coupe and figured I wanted to be in something big instead of a little coupe. I was a little weary about buying it because it looked pretty bad stock :eek:.

    **Majority of the pics are from my cell phone because I'm too lazy to carry a digital camera around with me. I'm planning on updating the pictures when I get some better ones**

    May 2009: The day I took it for a test drive.
    [​IMG]

    A week or two after I got it. I had it tinted and tackled the BHLM. It took me 2 times to get it right. (1st time I rushed it and the paint was chipping off the plastic, 2nd time I had a palm print on the lens :))
    [​IMG]

    It took me about 4 months to finally decide on a wheel/tire combo. I was trying to do this as cheap as possible. I picked up a pair of Icon Extended Travel Coilovers, rear 5100's and some Total Chaos UCA's from Wheeler's Off Road. I also picked a set of Hankook Dyna Pro MT's and 17" XD Revolvers.
    [​IMG]

    October 2009: I picked up a Grill Craft Mesh Grill and had my base grill painted to match the rest of the truck.
    [​IMG]

    I took a trip up to Sedona and hit up the Greasy Spoon Trail with my bro. As soon as we hit the trail it started pouring rain, the whole this was pretty slick but didn't give us too much trouble (Although my bro almost slide into a 4ft wide boulder)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Posing with my bro's X-terra. He picked it up only a couple days before we went out (still had temp tags on it).
    [​IMG]

    Went back up to Sedona a week or two after the first trip and hit up a couple more trails. This time there was a ton of snow in the morning which melted pretty damn quick.

    [​IMG]



    A couple minutes while after we started Broken Arrow it started to snow like crazy. We didn't take too many pics because we were too busy trying to figure out where the trail went. The snow started to stick to the red rocks and we had a little bit of trouble figuring out which way to go :confused:.
    [​IMG]

    I was banking my money patiently waiting for an All Pro Front Bumper group buy to come up. It finally did in March 2010. I decided to jump in wallet first and picked up a front bumper and a full set of skids minus the transfer case because it was back ordered for a couple of months.

    The AZ crew helped me put it on at one of the Mod Days.
    [​IMG]



    July 2010: Finally picked up some lights for my truck. I decided to go big and picked up a pair of Lightforce 240 blitz's. These lights are just plain AWESOME! :D

    4x4 probably need to throw that in the description somewhere :) I was able to snag the lights with a 10% off coupon so they were $225. I just picked up a set of yellow lenses for them but haven't gotten a chance to test them out yet.

    Thanks man, yeah I think that was one of the main mod days that I actually made it to.

    Thanks, that mod day was definitely a good time! Hopefully when it cools down we can get another set up. The heat is just insane, thank god for the monsoons.

    Truck looks sweet. I like the rims and tires you went with. For my next set of tires I'll be going with the Hankooks MT as well. Seems like a good tire for the price.

    Thanks, yeah I'm going to try and make it out more!

    Thanks man, I saw your build thread and decided I needed to put mine together too. I love Sedona, I grew up there and kinda thinking about trying to move back up north.

    Thanks, Yeah that mod day had a good turn out. I'm definitely down to do some wheeling. Think I got all of my trail gear ready just need to install my CB and pick up some odds and ends.

    Thanks, your RAD Taco is looking damn good too. Yeah I really like the tires been great off road and surprisingly quiet. You definitely can't argue with the price.

    Thanks man, I just need to get some performance mods done like yours!

    Haha yeah and some better quality ones! :eek:
