    Has anyone got rid of the chrome around the push to start button? I’ve seen a couple decals but nothing else.

    Did the front cam addition. Didn’t quite fit like I wanted it to. Had to put it behind the grill. But I’ll fix that later when I put on my SSO Slimline Bumper. Had the front cam right and left inverted and couldn’t figure it out. Finally I checked the input and my 16 yr old plugged it into the the rear cam input instead of the front. Made all the difference 2CF06A4B-CE2F-4D6E-88E8-05BB6B3F9D4A.jpgB8694259-4903-4257-9E14-18B804B39B10.jpg 9EDB75BC-01B2-4B3C-B852-B3365C110036.jpg3A3FE556-7DC8-426B-BC88-7DC7808BC4C6.jpg 968D9E57-6767-44CB-819D-19AEE024C911.jpgD2B2C943-BDFF-4918-96C5-E40790913BCD.jpg

    Sitting in the mod pile would explain why I’ve never seen it on your truck! I have the same huge pile of small parts that all deserve their portion of my very limited amount of time. I appreciate the links, but was really just interested in seeing it on your truck. Time or money, always out of one or the other!

    More often than not I'm usually out of both!
    I remember hearing somewhere that it gets easier as you get older............., I wonder who came up with that lie?
    Hopefully this Spring I'll get caught up with this mod pile and then I'll do a walk around.
    Still in for that bumper if I can get them to fab us one?

    In a heartbeat. I’ve sent requeats to a few myself as well. Victory and one I hadn’t heard of before called DV8. Thought they had an interesting one because it requires zero cutting.

    I wonder how hard it would be to weld a hitch into an existing one.

    Got the fairlead plate, the rope and license plate holder installed. Had a tough time attaching the winch to the bumper. My hands are too big to fit into the space available to get the long bolts easily started. Took some time messing around with different ways to get them started. Finally, used a long pair of pliers to feed in the bolt and stand it up on its head then lowered the winch on to them. Had to tap on the two nuts to get them to fit flush enough to accept the bolt. then used tape to hold the other two in place so they wouldn’t move. took off some skin off my knuckles but got my finger tips in there to get the bolt to sit correctly then got them started enough to get a wrench on them. No problem with the rear which had plenty of room for my hands.

    Prep truck tomorrow!

    Just kidding put on blackout stickers on my stock wheels. Unfortunately I tore a couple of them and ended up one sticker short. Hopefully I can get another one without paying for a full set.

    Interesting use of your bed mat. Now that's thinking outside the box. Looking forward to seeing the final result. Nice job so far. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Grandfather and I fab'd some extra protection onto the CBI T3 bumper we installed. Lots of fun, plus kept the factory look I like instead of trimming the truck for a full size bumper.
    Also have completed the obligatory interior light switch to LEDs

    AJT Design is about to offer then but there is also a thread where Meso Customs said he is going to be offering a chrome delete kit for the interior as well; I'm waiting on the latter :)

    It was tight as hell putting it on. it has a few winkles but with wear it should work it self out. I just hated how much of a pain it was to clean the oem cloth. They also have a little extra padding which makes the seats much nicer

    If I had access to the machinery that I used to I might give it a shot, ufortunately I no longer do. Huge employee friendly factory with every machine and machine tool you could ever want. Best job I ever had, broke my heart when they went out. Some of the most skilled people in the machine trade I have ever worked with. Stayed with them right to the end.

    As far as the other slimline type bumper mfgrs go @SSOoffroad is the one that I liked the best. Not to take anything away from any of the other mfgrs. I just think they have the best product for that type of bumper by far. Nice form, fit, and welds, overall a really nice clean job.
