Ianyboy build thread

Here is my build-up for my 2011, Sport 4x4. From may 2011, to today!
It is a Sport 4x4, with all equipment and accesories of the FX4, including the 4.10 differentials

When I bought the truck, may 2011, brand spanking new:


After this, I got my DDIN Alpine INA-W900, in dash GPS radio.

After my break-in period, mid-summer 2011, got my 1.5'' spacers on it:



Truck stayed as is till summer 2012, where i got my old 31s:


Winter 2012-2013, the fun begins (I got a pay raise :P, it helped)
Got my 2.5 Inch suspension lift:


Got the 3in bodylift:


Summer 2013 gets to us.
Painted the fender flares, emblems in flat black:


Got the custom fab front bumper:



Got the muffler cut off of the truck:


Installed my hilift jack on the tailgate:


Winter 2013-2014:
Mounted my CB and it's 102in antenna: (its in the bootom left corner)



Got my cluster face painted in silver:



I'll now on give y'all regular updates as to what happens to the truck

I see I have not updated this since the tires! Well, where to start?!
Got an ugly @$$ camper shell for the baby stuff, soon will be painted black;


I smoked the red part of the tail lights, and the front corners, using some plasti-dip;


Built a beefier TC skid plate;


Went to a local U-Pull for a buddies '94 ranger, ended up finding myself a couple of goodies. An Expo OHC, and a lower console with 2 cup holders out of an Edge Ranger;



And, lastly, this past W-E, relocated my CB radio to top dash;
