Update Pics....Finally!

Its been a while but i finally got pics of the line-x and 06+ flares. I have been busy and the truck has been plagued with problems here lately as i had a hub assembly bearing go out at about 60 mph which stuck both my calipers, wore out tie rods, grooved my rotors, messed up a cv axle and just caused a big mess. Then i had to replace the thermostat housing and intake gasket so its been a rough last few weeks for the truck and my wallet. lol! Its fixed now and everything is good to go.

I also added 2 D-rings to my hitch, painted my diff. cover red, and got a uniden scanner installed on the inside. I also removed the stupid little bull bar. I think it looks better without it. Let me know what ya think!

Interior pics NAO!!!!! Truck looks good man! I woulda raised the hitch and put the exhaust under it, but that's just me.

Are you running coil-over helper springs in the rear? Is that what I see?

damn that looks good, how much did the line-x run you for all that? are the fenders and bottom of bumpers line-xd too? Throw some 06 tails on that thing and it will almost look like an 06+ truck with those flares and all

sorry didnt get a chance to get any interior pics. the flares and valance are not line-x'ed. they told me it might not stick well on it so i decided against it. line-x was $300 even and they did all the prep work and removed any dents.

I would have raised my hitch and put the tips under it but i do alot of rock crawling and offroading and i can just drag the hitch and not have to worry about messing up my tips or breaking hangers. 2 years and i havent hit a tip or broke a single hanger so i like it.

yes, i have monroe shocks with the overload coils around them. I ordered the base model sensa-tracs from my local oreilly auto parts and they sent me the way more expensive overload ones by mistake. I liked them and didnt feel like going to the trouble to return them so i kept them. Their mistake, my gain. LOL!!!

next on the list is probably looking for a new set of tires while i have the money and then im looking at putting the projectors with hid's and red halos in my headlights like wowmike did, then maybe rock sliders

I LOVE the line-x! but I would have raised the hitch also and done the exhaust different, just looks unfinished with the hitch like that.

The line-x does look good! But I would definitely do something different with the exhaust and hitch. If you are concerned about clearance, run the tips on the side of the hitch or make them side exits. Your truck is not the only one like that, I have seen quite a few others for some reason.

I actually kinda like the hitch, and your right, it serves its purpose. great lookin' truck, I think I would have done the rear bumper in line-x too, but looks great either way!

thanks guys. the hitch is gonna stay has been like that for 2 years and works perfect for protecting the tips and bumper on the rocks. its a whole lot cleaner looking in person trust me!

and if i had got alot more done in line-x it woulda cost me alot of $$$$$. and if the line-x guy said it would prob not stick to well then there was no need in spending alot of $$$$ on it if it was gonna chip. it looks great with the black plastic tho. the shades match up perfectly

the line-x was only done due to how bad my paint was messed up due to rock chips from the tires slinging rocks. I liked my paint better but i have grown to like the line-x it is very strong stuff for sure.

looks good man, my truck to be next I hope!!! and we'll be twins

I was talking to scott and was thinking. If I wanted to repaint my truck, should I wait and do that then Linex or linex before and paint later. It may be a couple years before I repaint but i want that linex look??
