Here's my build thread for my 02 fx4 twin stick, bought it in December 2013, 170,000km.
I'll be editing this post whenever I do something to the truck

The day I bought it, totally stock


What I've done:
Removed bug deflector
Removed mudflaps
Removed bed rails
Headlight mod
1" t bar lift
8" bazooka sub
Nite shaded headlight corners
Nite shaded 06+ tailights
Bed rails from a sport model
1.5" hubcentric wheel spacers
Fog light mod
Airbox mod
Drop in k&n filter
Poplock tailgate lock
Muffler delete with 3" tip coming strait out the back
Extang trifold tonneau cover


I plan to so a 3" BL and 33" duratracs on 15x10 rims
Flowmaster super 44, and tint front windows. Maybe a touch screen head unit.

Looks awesome!

Has the headlight mod affected the brightness of the headlight at night?

Nice man! looks exactly like my truck:

Got twins as well! See where there is some rust forming on the top of your rocker panels at those seams? Spray some fluid film in there to prevent further spread of it.

Thanks man! There isn't any rust on the rockers, that is just oil from getting it under oiled. There is alittle rust on the inside lip of the door but I'm keeping it sprayed with krown. I think I'll get some fluid film and use that on the inside if the door. Thanks

You blurred out the number on the trailer but you can read it off the reflection on the truck
