    Finally got the All-Pro rear bumper with side plates, took the front off and grinded it down to spray them both with Raptor Liner I got off eBay, spraying the nFab steps when I get the All-Pro skid plate.. I think they turned out nice, mounting them back onto the truck tomorrow.

    Hooked up my train horns last weekend too, horns are in the front bumper, two on each side facing out the holes on the sides of the winch, and I'm going to mount an air hookup somewhere under the rear of the truck and maybe one at the front for airing up tires/tubes/blowing dirt out of stuff.

    Picked up some oil for the differentials & transfer case this weekend.. need two more bottles.. & my EBC rotors showed up, still waiting on the green stuff pads, and JP has my stainless lines arriving tomorrow, hoping the lines/rotors/pads will help stop the 35s a little quicker.

    Got the front done, I'll take pictures of tires mounted once it's all done.. put the EBC rotors & pads on, along with the stainless extended lines from JP which worked great.

    Not re-installing the sway bar to see how that rides, also since it looks stupid hanging that far below the bumper.. so I'm going to ditch those angled sway bar drop brackets & make new straight plates for the reservoirs & try to raise them a little more. They happened to work right there with those brackets so for the time being it's fine and the tires have several inches of clearance from them at full lock..

    Ran into a few small issues, and took breaks.. no hurry.. so the front took all day lol. Heading back over to my step dad's shop to start on the rear soon. Once the rear's done we're changing the oil in both differentials & transfer case, & cranking the coilovers just a little if needed to match the front fender to ground height to the rear.

    More pics soon!
