    Well I finally got 95% of my parts installed. I still have to debadge, do bedrail caps, black toolbox, and then decide on what I am going to do. I have fender flares, rear handle, and tow mirrors sanded and smoothed and waiting for paint. I also had to install a reman transfer case because mine was fucked. Truck drives so much better and looks a ton better IMO. Slowly but surely it will get finished up or sold (who knows haha).

    I will get better pictures once I get the truck home. One of my steering lines was leaking when I picked it up, so I ordered new ones and they should be in and installed this week

    hahahaha...Right now it hides all the ugly headlights, nasty front bumper, all that stuff. Eventually it will get removed, new lights, new bumper cover...but for now I am just going to leave it on there. I mean I haven't washed the damn thing in 6 months.

    New ball joints go in tomorrow, with a little crank and alignment. I love this truck but I swear it always needs something :(

    Completely agree man...part of me wants to sell it and get 1500 or SUV (at least those seem to be cheaper) but then I love the power and size of the truck.

    Once you get ahead you’ll be alright. Had my truck inspected last year all they could come back with was well you should really do those brake lines eventually... the originals are known to fail. it’s due again in August so that will be the real test.
