Bought her back in November last year. As cash flow allows I'll be doing some mods and hopefully keep it till it runs through a couple engines.

Picture is after I replaced a cracked/broken grille. Removed a petrified bird from in front of the radiator. But you get the general idea.

Bought some 058 Eagle alloys and plastidipped them to see how they looked. Finally went back to chrome today(some still left on there)

Best mod so far. Infantry lead the way hooah

Removed Dealer Logo

Bought 2 12'' Boss subs and a 1600 Boss amp from a coworker.

Mods to do:
3'' Body lift
Slap some A/Ts on there
Flowmaster 40 SI/DO exhaust
'06 Tails and Mirrors
Fix the Shift indicator in the dash / instal LEDS
60/40 to 40/40 Mod and Explorer console
Fogs behind the grille
Tonneau cover
4x4 Edge front bumper + vallance(already got one, just need the other)
Remove mudflaps
Downsize the temporary Sub box and unghettofy the legs on it.
Roll on Bedliner

Thats the mods on my list, and being a first timer on any kind of truck work It might take me a while to pull off. Cash being the main issue. lol

Any mods you guys would like to see on it? Trying to keep a clean tasteful look similar to

StxDangerRanger 05-15-2012 07:09 PM

welcome man. Truck looks good

Smith 05-15-2012 10:16 PM

Its one of the 4x4 fog light valances with the raised corners, and on the regular bumper without the notches, they tend to stick out and have a gap/not flush. Didnt look to clean.

PSIJOE 05-15-2012 11:11 PM

I like the new wheels.

Hey yall, Just moved to Georgia a couple months ago. Change of scenery has been outstanding.
Haven't done much to the truck since then, strapped on cash as of until late. Just had a couple of things done that haven't required cubic dollars. Probably won't get to anything big either for a year or so. Everything down here takes a tad bit more gas than my old home. So a dual sport or a street bike is in the plan.
Anyways little updates:

Cut the sub box in half, taking back a little bit of space in the back and not overdoing my music with bass lol

New seat covers with back pouches n whatnot. Gonna dye it black sometime.

Black kolbat toolbox, low profile and not so wide, just enough and i still feel like i have a truckbed!

and the grand finale. Ppppppowerdome!

Forgive the dirt and messy wiring job. Have to redo the wires since the subs aren't taking up the whole extended cab.
