Alright finally have a parts list im going to stick with. been back and forth about shocks for a few weeks, and im glad im going where i am. Heres my list. I am chatting with a local shop about a front bumper for the truck. I'll leave the rear till i have my glass and can then work off of it.

Camburg 5.5 Coils in red
BTF Uniball Upper Arms Raw (will powder coat probably red)
Bilstein 5100 Shocks valved to the weight of my truck
PRP Limit Straps
Ruff Stuff double sheer strap tabs
1 1/4" Wheel spacers for rear

Once those parts are in and installed i'll be ordering my Bedsides from McNeil. Going to go with flat top 4" so i can keep my tonneau cover. Also have to install the regular width 8.8


Later in the summer, or maybe next spring, ill probably do a shock upgrade to radflo's all around.

nope you cant change them, but you can order them vehicle and usage specific. so you atleast get a bit of a "tuning"

So I went out to the truck tonight and threw my performance tune into the truck again as i had it on stock for servicing. Fired it up after wards and it sounded like a single piston dirt bike, pretty sure i was only running on 1 cylinder. ran for a few seconds and shut off. Im gonna guess it was a bad tune install so ill go out tomorrow and reset it. Had that happen once before on the mileage tune, so I'm not as worried as i could be lol.


Windsheild guy ended up calling me, the glass he ordered showed up with a massive scratch, so that won't be going in till tomorrow. (rain rain go away!)

Also pretty much finalized my order. Gotta keep in my head I'm building a daily driver not a trophy truck. every time i look at my bank, i start thing coil over long travel with dealers or linked. But no, not today. Im still iffy about the bilsteins being nice enough, but if i don't like them ill sell em and go 2.0 radflo's. Hey its only money. :D


Now to hope that i can get these parts before june 21st…


Nate

Been busy. Swapped the seats, worked on my raptor markers.








The light on the right is a "done" setup, left is unpainted.





Seats!

I think the lights would look a little better if they were closer together.

Painted and installed.


Off


On





As soon as i hear back from BCST on the parts invoice and have a total, i'll be placing my order. Getting really pumped for the parts, but a little discouraged that i wanted to order today, but will still have to wait 6 days for my paypal to transfer the money from my bank (i dont use credit cards) even if i get the numbers this afternoon. Looks like my parts wont be here in time for the June beach meet of the Ontario Ranger Club. Im gonna guess parts will be here after the 28th of june, if not later.

The lights look great! I like that they're dim instead of very pronounced.
