Default Project : (Insert Cool Name Here)

Well I figured its about time I make a build thread so I dont have to keep makes tons of new threads for everything I do and also this weekend I have a few mods up my sleeves to be done...

Anyways lets start off with the short history of my truck. Bought the truck May 27th, 2010.

Day I brought it home and the next day I took the shell and mud flaps off.








May 29th, 2010 I got my wheels/tires and hids. Wheels are Helo Maxx 6s 16x8 and tires are BFG KM2s 285/75/16. At First I got 10k hids.





Next was 5% tint, stickers and My turkey hitch cover I found lol





Next thing was black headlight, led tails, and more stickers lol











Then I removed the step bars and cranked my t bars to level out the truck.

----------

After that I did my favorite and biggest mod so far. Recovered my seat and door panels with oem material.















Changed my hids to 6k



Then came the s***ty part. I did the timimg chain rattle mod.



Old motor was then replaced with another 4.0 out of an 08 w/ 22k miles.



As it sits now



Like I said this weekend there is going to be a few new things happening and you'll just have to wait and see cuz I ain't tellin lol.

I second that. Where did you get the new seat skins and the arm rests? Wish you would had done a Youtuber on the seats alone!
