    I've been so busy working trying to save up for dropping the single cab, and I'm in the process of getting a daily so I can tear into both of my trucks and really get some work done on them, so no progress has been made on anything as of recently. I loved my esky cluster, but I hated how off the speedometer was, and there was no way I was going back to stock, so I decided to try out an electroiluminescent gauge cluster. It came with no instructions and was a pain in the ass to figure out how it worked and to wire it into the correct wire for the dimmer switch, but the end result looks pretty sweet imo [​IMG]

    That gauge cluster looks great minus the old yellow odometer.

    Yeah it could definitely look better, but I'm not trying to fool with it anymore unless I absolutely have to. I'm happy with it

    Understood, still a huge improvement over the stock cluster.

    Jesus, it’s been over 2 years since I’ve updated this. Priorities have been all over the place since I’ve decided to go back to school, so trucks have taken the back seat in life. In early 2018, I dropped the truck from 2/4 to 4/7 and got a shaved gate [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It’s still my daily driver, and in the beginning of July, someone backed into it while I was parked at work. Luckily she was honest (allbeit a shitty driver) and she paid in full for the grille and bumper to replaced. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Didn’t have any time for a while to tear the truck apart to fix it for a while, so I looked like a bum until early October when I put in a new Chevy grille with Billet inserts, an original heartbeat Billet bowtie, a new chrome smoothie bumper, and I slapped on the 20” centerlines that I used to have on my single cab[​IMG]
    Truck is still my daily, and I’m constantly racking up miles on it. 240k and steadily going up. Hope to be more active on this forum again this year!

    Partial to that front end compared to the previous. Looks good!

    I agree. I liked the GMC grille, but there’s just something about chrome and Billet!

    Looks great especially the wheels. What tire size are you running?
