Hey Guys!

Been awhile since I've been up here but I seem to have the bug again to do more stuff to my truck. I hope everyone's been doing well..everyone's trucks are looking great.

Just an update..pulled out my transmission awhile back and FINALLY got the reverse fixed..lord its like I have a new truck again! Come to find out a lot of stuff was pretty screwed up..but hey it still went forwards for a year so heck with it! As of now..I need new brakes..new front driveshaft (stock one is shot)..and I have a small water leak that I'm hoping I've fixed and an electrical drain which I'm hoping is straightened out as well. I took the Hids out of my car and put them in my truck since I'm going a different direction with the car...I wish I'd of done that a long time ago! I just need the headlights now.

I'll shut up and post some goodness!

Thanks Sully...I def. Still want to do more to it but I just don't want to over do it. I have pretty much run out of ideas for the outside.

Thank you thank you and thank you to all you folks! I don't get any appreciation for the work I've put into my truck anywhere but here so its always nice.

As far as the pictures..I've been working with learning for quite awhile now..I'm pretty addicted!

I'll post some pictures of the horns very soon..unfortunately the horns are beginning to tarnish..but they sure do sound good still!

I did..and do still have an auto trans..I surely hope I don't have to go through that mess again.
Its 7" or so of lift. I have the 4" Super Lift and of course a 3" body lift. The T-bars are right in there comfort zone..thank the lord haha.

Mods...I really want to do more but I just don't know what I should do. I HAVE to get my skid plate raised up..that is the last piece I want to do to hide the body lift. I want to get the Hids in the headlights as I said but I need to decide if I should go with the Hi/Low kit or just go with the low beams. I'd love to do some more under the hood such as an electric fan..coil pack..and most DEF. I would like to re-gear to some 4.88s.

As far as inside..I'd still like to sell my flip out and go with a double din...pull the entire interior and dynamat everything..and a few small other touches.

Otherwise I'm kind of out of ideas :/..I'll tell ya its kind of disappointed sometimes..I just don't know what else I could do exterior without looking like I've gone overboard!

That's on thing I forgot about! That covers up the skidplate gap as well. As far as the hood...I always wanted that one aftermarket cowl induction hood that I've seen someone up here with but I can't seem to find it anymore.

Good ideas Sully!
And you can have my tires if you'll give me some 18" Chrome rockstars with some toyos :) I do love these tires though!

Hahaha this is true. I honestly have no problems with the setup I have man. It still rolls pretty good for what it is and I have 4.10s. I think 4.88s would be perfect..maybe one day. Your gas mileage will suffer some for sure which you know..but to be honest mine was never great. The enjoyment of the lift and tires is well worth it to me.
