brianjwilson - Thanks! Got an idea to tie the grille into the headlights when I have time/money to spare in a few weeks.

You should, makes it a completely different unit. If I can do it, any idiot can!

My only complaint about them was in the hard packed ice/snow. But its ice, so not much will get good traction. I also only have 1 wheel peal so I had to use 4wd where I didn't want to.

Not much can top the ranger for BFG ATs

Got my MBRP Cool Duals system installed (finally) and the DIY Intake. Waiting for gauges to arrive, then may consider a chip sometime in the near future.

Don't have a good picture of the exhaust yet, but this says it all. Stock vs new 4":

Bah, the more I look at your truck the more jealous I get.
I would really like that exact truck, but with a crew cab.

The storm I ended up driving through Friday on a trip to pick up some semi tires that were cheap. Ended up driving through a developing tornado/funnel cloud, picked up the tires in the bed of the truck (2 tires, 100lbs each, both strapped down) and slammed them into the front of the bed bending the front bed wall, picking the wipers off the windshield and making the truck feel like driving on black ice. Freakiest thing I've experienced in my life:

Exhaust looks good, nice and tucked up high. Needs an 05+ grill now...ditch the steps...My truck has no steps, everyone asks how much it's lifted.

Thanks guys, I'm really liking it so far. The turbo has a great whistle at 1000-1600RPM, that's only noticable from outside, but not as obnoxious as a 6.0 . . .

Does have a bit of interior drone at 1600-1800RPM though, really hoping that goes away after break-in.

Should have my gauges in this week and a chip (either PHP or Gearhead) on order by the weekend. I've got mod-fever!

Thanks man, the thread on PSN being my one from yesterday . . . yeah not pleased about that, at all.

I was going to order the 6-position with either PHP or Gearhead tunes, but a recent issue has put that to a halt.

Thanks for looking!

PS - Due to my CS3 expiring, I've been using Photobucket's editing software, so that's why the pictures look so plane. If anyone has a CS3 keygen, please PM me (mods please feel free to remove this request/ask me to if this breaks a rule), thanks guys!

Don't know how I missed this, but your truck is beautiful! Sounds great too! I love the sound of a whistling turbo with a diesel engine.
