    I bought my truck in January of 2015 primarily for camping and the normal stuff that a truck is used for, had about 80k miles on it and was completely stock. I quickly bought my SCS wheels and had them installed. Unsure exactly how much wheeling I would be doing so I opted for the Bilstein 5100 lift with an Icon AAL but now after going out a few times I know I will need to go bigger and better in the near future.

    Very nice looking build. I might take mine offroad once in a blue moon, so it will remain mostly stock. Other than the rear diff breather mod, anything I should definitely do?

    Just depends on what you like/ need. That's the beauty of these trucks is using your imagination and making it your own. Free cool mod I love is the anytime fog light mod!!! Do that one

    I have the following to do list for Wednesday plus I am picking up my plate bumper from powder coat tomorrow. Had to take the front shocks off to upgrade to 700# springs to handle the bumper and winch. Pics are coming right up.

    Installed my bumper, IFS skid, winch, grill, full brakes, wheel bearings and lower ball joints last weekend. Then this weekend I took her for a day trip.
