Waxed my truck. Also some new stuff....MTZs.....56k watch out.

I got bored today and decided to wash my truck. I got done with that and was still bored so I decided to give it a much needed waxing. This is only the second time its been waxed since I drove it off the lot with 82 miles on it. Then I proceeded to drive down a dirt road for pictures and got it all dusty again lol.

Anyways, I got a couple things since last time I posted pictures. I painted my upper and lower billet grilles black, and got some of the all black headlights. I was real skeptical on how this black would go with my silver hood, but I think it turned out really nice.

Also my latest addition, new Mickey Thompson MTZs. Same size as my last tires....35x12.50. Ive got a black diamond plate toolbox, Fabtech flat mount tire carrier, and a wheel for my fullsize spare on order. Oh yeah I ditched my step bars as well...and clocked my rear shock tabs.

Enough chit chat, here's the pics. Hopefully next time I post pics the truck will look much different.....we all know the modding never stops.



























Limit straps installed


Shock tabs clocked so they dont hang down. Also allows me to use my factory shocks again, they ride the best.

Nice! You have a great looking truck. The MTZ's are awesome -- I love mine. I can't wait to put them back on for the Wharton trip on the 26th and try them in 4WD!

Awesome. I love it. I must have missed the thread with the RCD install? Or my memory is failing me.

Looks great though. I think you need a nice set of sliders on there

You probably missed the thread, could be your memory though. I have a bad memory too lol.

I think your right about the sliders!

That sure would be cool but I've poured too much blood, sweat, tears, and of course money into this one lol. Not to mention its paid for!

Yeah dude let me know about the sliders. If I wasn't so lazy I'd probably make my own...or attempt to at least. I need a bender though.

Deavers....waaaaay better than stock. They weren't cheap, but they ride so smooth. Even more so now that Ive got the stock shocks on again.
