thanks Zach, the little guy loves to ride in the truck

not many pics but I did get to play in my back yard

last year they held the national finals rock crawling on our property
and they have had several big rock races on the property in the past years

there is an endless amount of rock crawling right in my back yard but I hardly get the chance to mess around

put the sliders to work

cleaned it up so you could actually see that I lined the rock sliders.. and obviously the bumper/skid
I also got the tail gate done....one piece at a time... probably do the hood and grill next...
Im kinda liking the all blacked out,... just need some black headlights now

you got to be carefull with this stuff. it can make you get bed liner happy and you will just want to start covering every thing with it

I decided to change my bumper so I could put a winch on it without cutting up my grill and I took some crappy pics






not the straightest cuts... all I have is my trusty 4.5 angle grinder to cut with




still need to burn it in

my calculations were a little off I ended up having to cut into my grill a bit but not into the tabs that hold the grill on so it worked out ok





tight fit

started working on boxing my rear truss in awhile back, decided to make it a little lower profile
I'm going to cut the top plate off and drop it but haven't got to that yet
because I wasn't that happy with the box plate fitment so i may redo that first

I may have to do that. I swapped to Expo springs and it saw lower.

I'm either getting new leaf springs, or starting a 4 link
