Clanier4x4's 1997 4.0 OHV 5 speed. Progression....pics tell the story.
Let me get one thing straight, i work for my stuff and I take pride in it, aint no money fed kid here. My truck means alot to me.
5.5 inch-33x12.50x15 BFG A/T- Eage Alloys
The day i brought her home...



A few days later...


First thing i did was add the 4x4off-road decals.




First time really true wheeling, id done some stuff but not mud like this..






Next i covered my mint condition seats and floors with some apparel..



Then came the .44 mag shifter...dont forget the power acoustic cd player touch screen...



I needed a bed liner...bad.



so i got one...





Always hated my tinted tails...

before:



After:



Pinstripe Removal (long awaited)...
before:




After:



Then came the Kobalt slim line tool box...







I let it sit for a while...wasnt making progress, then i got inspired...

TOTM photos i took...






Then i got a Cobra CB and i added firestick to go with it...




Then came these bad boys- 4 100 watt off road lights from harbor freight...




notice the new red 4ft firestick along with the new lights-truck looks tough here.




Then came the Winchester gun rack:


Then came some DDM tuning 4500k HIDS...



Then she got a buddy...






I will update this with both trucks updates thats how things sit today but things could change tomorrow who knows...stay tuned folks.

Until then...just keep on truckin...

I like it a lot. The touch screen is ehhh buy its got buttons and it's got a back up camera so. And the pinstriping i did it the hard way. Just take my advice and get a 3n eraser wheel.

You can find them at junk yards fairly cheap. The fogs are mustang fogs. You can also get the valence off of LMC I think, don't hold me to it.
