    I bought my truck in January of 2015 for camping and the normal stuff that a truck is used for, it was completely stock. I quickly bought my SCS wheels and got them installed. I had a camper shell for a while then sold it for easier access to my bed.

    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.
