    K&N 77 series intake Flowmaster American thunder exhaust system Extang trifecta bed cover Stampede hood and window deflectors
    I bought this K&N 77 series metal tube intake two months ago. I also bought the flowmaster American thunder exhaust system for my truck....you're welcome www.autoanything.com

    I must say...I loved it at first.

    The additional power and the sound was awesome. After driving around with it for two months I put the stock intake back on tonight. The combination of the loud exhaust and the loud intake was too much.

    Now it's time to look for a quieter solution. I already miss the additional boost behind the gas pedal.

    Not bad. The first time took about an hour.

    The second time took about fifteen minutes.

    I had a RTT in mind when I had him fab the rack.

    I picked up eight bolts at Ace hardware.

    I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure they're 1/2 x 3/4 round head.

    They fit perfectly inside the rail.

    about to add a pice of 2x6 and 4x4 and add a little air to tires.

    found out Saturday i could use a pice of 2x6 or 4x4, went trail riding with a member and he got a flat right before we got to the interstate. and we could have used that 4x4 and 2x6, side of road was not very flat and we had to use his and my bottle jacks.

    P.S. i thought about adding some at one time, but thought ohh i’ll never need it unless i lifted and did not have a hi lift. but i was wrong.

    Just completed my first mod, Locks on bed compartments. Came out pretty nice I might say. Little safer for my straps and tie downs now =)

    Hopefully today I can put my painted black badges on =)

    nice. i should do that.... but i don’t keep anything but 1 pieces of rope and 2 of those fast tie downs for rope. what maybe$10 or $15 worth of stuff in it. all fits in the small one(like the pic) nothing is in the big one, but will keep my 4x4 and 2x6 in it for now.

    Took the bedsides off the truck (PITA BTW) then power walked all the dirty and nastiness off.

    Dripped on the McNeilRacing fiberglass. Then buttoned everything back up. To include gas door which isn't in in this pic.

    [​IMG]

    For the most part everything with smoothly just have to give the fiberglass some extra loving around the tail lights for the perfect fit andvput the tail gate back on.

    Also doing the cab mount chop today. Pics up later!
