Pick and Choose! What would you like to see?

Just a couple items I have been looking at, would like to see what the general public would like to see done first and second... Lots of little things I have to touch up on, and provided a list on them :-)


For info on the exhaust fix, this is what it is now.. looked great before, but after bigger tires and the bodylift, suddenly the dual 2" tips are a tad small looking

For the Behind-Grill KC offroad Lights, I plan on putting them right behind the front grill mesh, mounted up, and then switching the KC bulbs to HID's for heat reasons.. and coolness factor

Fix your pipes......replace with side exiting dual 3.5" slash cut tips. Get a hitch, but have a fab shop raise it 2.5". I'll show you how mine's gonna turn out.

What are you asking this for....i mean, why ARENT you asking this....


COMPLETE HID COVERSION! be cool like the rest of us!

I agree get you exhaust fixed. it would make it look alot better. also if you do it let me know how your hitch turns out I took mine off about a year ago but would like to get it back on at the right height.

I'd like to see that. I might have to call a few trailer hitch shops around here tomorrow and see if they can do anything with it.

I say go with the underdrive pulley kit. Power over tips that hang a little to low for sure.

First, fix the pipes, they're kinda an eyesore. Next, pulleys for power. Then the tuner to make the most of it! Then hids and lights behind the grill, they look sweet there!
