My photo thread!

Welp, I'm gonna make one thread and just keep adding all my photos to it when I can instead of having 50 threads lol

The history of my truck:
June 19th 2011; purchased the truck for $2800
June 5th, 2012; Put close to $6,000 in work/mods into it.

Pichers!

I'm just gonna leave these two for now. My phone's being a pita.

Ditch the camo...it doesn't go with the colors of the truck at all.

Also, get new wheels and tires. Paint the frame or get some side steps to cover it up.

Then you'll be in business.

First, frame does need painting. Second, working on getting some Bushwacker pocket flares and new wheels. Third, no steps. I'll just rip them off in the woods. Lastly, not ditching the camo. I like it a lot lol. I just need to clean my frame off before I paint it. It's caked with mud.

Time for more pics!









Opening day of deer season, 5:38 AM. Freshly built pipeline on a local farm. Decided to try and turn around and my front tire fell off the 12x12 wooden mats they put down to cross, and dropped into 2' of fresh goopy mud.

The bottom needs to be buffed after I took the bedliner off... Chipped away at it with a putty spreader and it put some nice scratches in the clear coat. But I won't be waxing her anymore until the end of the year. I want the mud to stick. It just bubbles up and looks retarded lol

if you used a putty knife to take the bedliner off im willing to bet the scratches are way too deep to be buffed out

Here's some pics of Tuesday night when I got stuck and Wednesday night when I went out again.


What happens when you go and get swamped at midnight. Light a fire and wait for someone to come pull you out lol



Went back out Wednesday night and conquered the same mudhole I got stuck in the night before!






Tomorrow, she's getting washed and going to the garage to diagnose my rear end problems.
