2006 B2300 The Silver Bullet

My first truck, bought it about 2 months ago, super clean with no body rust and only 115kms!
2006 B2300 The Silver Bullet-%24_20.jpg


Came with a Raider Cap, super nice but i had no real use for it and my dad had a tonneau left over from his Ranger since he put a cap on it, so I put that on my truck and it looks great I think

Now my most recent change would be i bought a new Kenwood headunit, " kdc-358u" . Even though I'm just using the stock 4 speakers(Can barely hear the back ones behind the seat) it sounds so much better already, wayyy better bass and just goes much louder without distorting now

Here it is now, I have tons of ideas, Sometime after Christmas is when I would like to get serious with upgrades- Better/Bigger tires, something like a 235/75/15 Cooper Discovery AT3 with some pro comp series 52 rims? Maybe some 2" coil spacers? anyone got ideas or suggestions? anyone got ideas or suggestions?

And if someone could tell me how to get my pictures to actually be big and not be attachments, that'd be great

Subwoofer in!

Picked up a kicker 10" Bassstation for $180! Finally got it installed tonight and will defiantly post pics tomorrow

The thing has crazy kick(hehehe) and really shakes the whole cab, lost a lot of leg room though since the armrest of the bench seat hits the sub, need to find a way to mod the armrest forward or do the bucket seat mod

Was it hard to do? I'm really considering it so i can move the sub more to the passenger side so that i can move my seat back all the way and have complete comfort

If you're wanting the pictures to be bigger, you need to upload them to Photobucket first, then copy and paste the sharing link here. It will be plenty big. I remember my first sub, seems like only yesterday. Once you get started, it's going to be really hard to stop!

2006 B2300 The Silver Bullet

Sorry it has been awhile since posting everyone, since my last post i got new tires- 30x9.5r15 bfg all terrains!








Next to my dads Fx4 Ranger, it sits way taller then mine but i was up a hill a little for this pic

I'm still thinking about doing a 2" lift but I'm afraid they'll make the tires look small, if anyone else has done it before feel free to post pics :)

So today I went to my Grandma and Grandpas for supper and because they're going on a trip in the next few days they decided I could have my gift early :D :D

I'll be buying speakers shortly

I got to spend Christmas(Sorry for such a late post) out offroading with my dad at seddons corner, so much fun with the snow and beautiful weather
Little loaded down with the Banshee


I'm a little jealous of my dads Ranger...

The two beasts, 2006 grizzly 660 and 2003 banshee

And just a little whoring after a wash :)

So it snowed a lot last night! and what better way to spend a saturday morning then out in the snow blasting through snow drifts!



Kinda funny, while ripping around I was blasting snow right over the bumper and hood in really deep stuff with no problem, right after I got stuck on my flat driveway because of some ice under one tire and the tinniest rut....need a locker
