New mods(kinda)

I finally got around to finishing up my tow hooks(sort of) and put an exhaust on my truck. I still need to make the supports for the tow hooks but other than that, they're done.

Tow hook "complete":


One mounted up:


And finished:


I'm going to be pulling the bumper and the hooks back off soon so I can weld up my front hitch. I'll also make sure to paint those bumper brackets and I'm going to try to get my bumper to sit a little straighter.

Oh and an exhaust picture:


It's the MBRP turn-down kit. Got it off ebay for $215 and it was there the next day.

She sounds pretty good. It could be a little bit louder but overall, it's perfect.

That exhaust is good looking.

I think all of your mileage comes from pulling your truck out of the garage for pictures hahahaha.

Its very rare to see an 02 with very lttle miles.

Keep up the good work friend!

Thanks everybody. The MBRP on the highway is perfect. Really no drone at all. It's just loud enough to hear it while you're cruisin down the road at about 70-75
