    Nice dude! way to motivate on the build thread. I need to make one too. I definitely need to do a couple of the mods you have done already... center console lock and diff breather are on my list fo sho. I am curious about the fuse block too, does that help with the offroad lights?
    BTW pics didnt load...? I would love to see your bumpers and sliders, thats wicked. SO much freakin $$$ for armor. thats great you got it dialed for materials basically. that is the way to go!

    Let me know if you have any questions about any of the mods that I did and I will try to help you out. And there is a chance I might even be willing to make another bumper and some more sliders. Just let me know and it would also be cool to see you up at the meet as well.

    sorry bout the delay, I was up in Idaho for river trip.... That sounds great, I hope I can make it. I do have sliders built by Brute force, havent installed em yet. In fact they are oxidizing as we speak. they need to be sanded, painted and welded on. IDK if that will happen before the meet, cause I am working OT like a hoar out on central. not saying no to anything...:eek: lol....

    btw trucks looking GOOD!!!
