The Banana.

Well time has come and figured Id make my own build log. Bought the truck myself when I was 15 years old from a guy off craigslist. It sat at my house for about 3 months while I worked on it until I turned 16 so I could actually drive by myself. I have had it for almost 2 years now as of 01/20/12. I have put many long hours into it making it mine and still not finished. I am hoping in few years after I get my supermotard that I will slap a body lift on and 35s. Ill slap pics up of everything I have done to it in order.

First day I brought it home.


Painted the grill, cleaned the headlights, and put in a new fog light.


Got a deal for the tires and rims on CL, 5 brand new tires including 5 rims for $400 and removed front license plate holder



Underdrive Pulley


Headlight Mod



Yellow OHC/Bezal



CB Radio


Doetsch Spindles



Hitch


Black Corners, Black Emblems, Yellow Diff Cover, Painted the hitch and bumper top black and the liscense plate lighs yellow.




Subs but no pics, just 2 10s.

Expo Roof Racks


Yellow Cab Light never going to waste money on a gay stang dome


Shackles


The end as of 01/20/12

i may consider doing that in the near future.

Perhaps we should turn this into a "Muddy Ranger Badge" Thread.

It looks real good with the front bumper on the ground. Did you have to get out the passanger side for this shot? I like how far the truck has came in a short period of time. Nice work for a 16-18 year old. Keep taking care of it and keep upgrades coming. Supermotards are the bomb. I want a 2010 CRF450 Motard.

Not to many parts to get black to get it flowing all black. also a can of black spray paint here and there and youll be good.

You like the slame look?

I did indeed. To get out of this stupid thing took 3 hours total with digging and yanking, sucked so much. Nice having my own company which allows me to be able to afford all this stuff for it.

I like the way you talk, honda is the way I was leaning. I was actually hoping to find a 2003/04 honda crf450 because they say no where on the title that they are off road only so I could get one and street legal it.

thanks, not very good quality but you get an idea. I will be getting ends to put in the back so it slops down and looks better.
