Sliders. My buddy Jesse (the one with the blue Ranger with the cage on the back I'm always posting) is a metal fabricator and mechanical engineer so He has a design that works extremely well. He also has a kick *** bumper design I'll be putting on the truck.

Body work since I'll have the armor

Fix my window

new shocks and tires for the truck

get around to putting my Aussie Locker in the rear

Thats on his truck, basically all is it is 2"x2"1/8" steel that he re-enforces so much that they hold upreally strong. Like I said, he's a mechanical engineer by degree so he has all the geometry down on them. I've seen them take some nasty hits on numerous trucks he has them on and they hold up nicely!

Thornton and I have numerous pictures of his truck in my photobucket pages. Also, to see a few good shots of it and my buddy Larry's truck (as well as a few of mine) check out the Support Our Troops trail report on Co4x4.org

Yep, I'm the dark blue FX4 on the box canyon, was right next to the Rubi when he rolled, and all that stuff. I'm on Co4x4 from time to time, not as much as here or RMFTC

My New plans are: Bama tuner, re do my lame open air filter with an aem brute force intake (silver) have a shop cut off the driver side of my Y pipe resonator & straight pipe the first cat, cause for some reason my tBar smacked the pipe leaving it creased...last for the motor is a set of under drive pulleys, The goal Is to average 17mpg or better city, since i just put on 32' bfg muds this may be tuff.
Along with the mpg game plane i would like infinity speakers and amp wring kit(for my new and uninstalled blaupunkt amp) also would like eagle alloy rims, with better brakes.
That's alot-a crap! probably do most of it tho unless things really change.

I want to look into getting a front tow-hitch installed. That'll probably happen pretty quickly. Nothing too big - the truck is still new
