After the long await my shackles are finally in! And i could not be more happy, not to much rake but no ghost trailer

Took absolutely forever do to the salty roads up here in Canada


Also got my ohc lights working, switches don't function yet but considering I'm only 3/5 of the lights it's super bright


Now I'm not sure what's next besides shocks, probably tint or the westin light bar with some hellas. What do you guys think

Got into an accident today, casually driving when the driver in front of me(mazda 3) slamed on her brakes, i hit mine instantly and slide into her, launched her forward into the suv in front of her, the mazda 3 is 99% a right off, my truck seems fine, but i need a new bumper, it got bent. My dad looked under my truck and said the frame doesn't appear to be bent or anything

But because I'm still on probation for my license(only have had it since Nov.3rd) there is a chance i could loose my license

That's lame. Throw a trail gear bumper on your truck. It's not that hard to do

You could still lose your license even though there was nothing you could do?

Got to test out the flex for the first time since i got the shackles in, defiantly say it did pretty well and I could go a little higher before the tire came off the ground

Truck is looking good and being put to good use. Bumper doesn't look like it took much damage at all.

Nothing new to the truck, did take it offroad last weekend which was a lot of fun, broke my wrist the next day though so I i got lots of time on my hands now though



Ended up crossing a washed out road...really glad for the compact width, the dakota scraped a hair

Spent the day doing a ultra cleaning, washed, used a clay bar for the first time, polished and waxed...never seen it shine so much before

Also tried some Mequires carpet and upholstery cleaner to remove some stains. Worked pretty decent on my seats and carpet but worked amazing on my headliner I found

Heres the cleaner and clay bar kit

And just because super shiny Dual Sport

So I've been thinking about adding lights lately and just want some opinions

My original plan was a western bull bar with 2 hellas on it but now idk, just the way it mounts looks so low, defeats the purpose of the 2" lift i did
But that roof rack..


Second idea is hellas mounted directly to the bumper. Now I've seen people mount them to a bar behind the grill and directly to the bumper, what would be best?


I like the look of 4 like this



I have also considered doing an hid conversion to them but my friend said they could get to hot and melt them

Anyone with suggestions/ideas etc would be great

Had some fun taking rolling shots, really hard taking stable pics with a cellphone and one arm :P

And I really should have washed it first


And because DualSport


I have also decided that this fall(or sooner) I want to get rid of the coil spacers, the ride is just to harsh and they're just going to wear out my front end components fast. Instead I want 3" Spindles, then aal or blocks for the back and throw on some 31's and new front shocks(back will get done sooner since 3" will extend stock shocks a lot)next summer once my bfgs wear some more. I know i could go bigger but it's just a 2.3 and i don't want to regear it

As for which tires I have time to decide, the new all terrain ta ko2 looks very aggressive and I like the bfgoodrich solid white lettering, the goodyear duratracs also look very aggressive

30" tires with a 3" lift(Bodylift) doesn't look to bad and will be good enough till 31's


This is the look I want overall, I also want to get a shell, non rise, colour matched with windows for camping(make some kind of a bed in there for me and the gf) with a full on basket up there for more gear

I'm guessing not good? My friend has them on his f-150 4x4 in a 33" and he was chugging through mud as deep as the running boards

As for the new ko2, only heard they're better then the old ones in deeper snow, which is important to me being in Canada

I know the tire life is not the best with the duratracs. I'd do some more research on tires to get some more options
