Default Finally, my truck looks like a real truck!

Well, after a few months of Craigslisting, driving around, painting, sanding etc, I finally have my truck looking the way I want it to!

All in all, I went from bone stock to this new look for waaay less than I expected. There is of course more to do, but I'm pretty stoked on the deals I got and the overall look now.

I got 30x9.50 BFGs with 2000 miles with brand new ProComp Series 52 Black wheels from 4wheelparts all for $300 installed. (after I sold the rims that came with the tires)

I got my truck cap for $100 on CL. It was in great shape but the paint was green and peeling, and the weather strip was shot, but I sanded and painted it, re-sealed it, and got the yakima racks all for another 100 bucks.

So $500 and some elbow grease gave my truck a new lease on life, and after owning it for 5 years, I'm not proud to call it MY truck!

Here's a before picture and a couple afters...more to come after my trip to Tahoe to shred the 9 feet of new snow they got this week.







Thanks to everyone for the tips and advice!
