    Haven't been very active on here & I've been needing to make a build thread so to start it off... I Received this truck at the beginning of my sophomore year. Nothing special to a lot of people but for me, as ugly as it was I thought it was pretty cool truck with a lot of potential. I got it with I just over 85,000 miles. Overall I just wanted a clean a simple truck with a small cam and converter. Performance would've been nice, but with the combination of this trucking being a 4x4, & having a 4l60e. I've decided to leave most of the performance side of things alone. The truck might get a intake and tune down the road but for now I'm wanting something clean and comfy to help haul parts while building something else. I started off slow being on a high school kids budget and funding other things.

    The first mods were removing all the chrome, removing nerf bars, and taking off the bedcover. Then I got into a lil car audio with a sub and box that I got for free from a family. A buddy of mine help with a install, having the amps hidden behind the seat. In the process I got into a minor wreck and did a little de-badging/color matching and some esky handles [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sorry for the long post

    Personally wouldn't have done 420s on a lifted/leveled truck but those ions look sweet. Some push through caps like Ryan had on his 962s would complete them imo.

    Thanks man I got them on here in the classifieds lol. I did 420's because I liked the tread pattern, they were cheap, & I was wanting to turbo the truck. With recent trans issues and me going to college in a few months I've decided against it, as it's my daily.

    I hit a big Boulder on the drivers side so that sides twisted. I Bought an hd front end here recently. Just need to get it painted and swapped on.

    HD clips will really set it off with the step side. I actually don't mind the 420's at all on this truck. Keep it up!

    I say CM bumper plastics and front plastics minus the valance. Leave bumpers chrome to tie into the wheels and handles.

    Thanks man! I actually tossed the idea around about changing it but I decided not to I like the truck being a lil different. As fR as wheels I'm not sure if I wouldn't have gotten them cheap they wouldn't be on the truck. They're pricey new & with the bed cover it needs to be resprayed & I sometimes throw my dirt bike in the back.
