Talking MY Build Thread!

Guess ill start this even though I have a long way to go...

So Far I have:
2" ReadyLift
18" Ballistic Jester -18mm
35x12.5r18 FUEL Mud Grippers
Iron Cross Bumper
12.5lbs Badlands Winch w/remote
4" Side Steps
Bushwacker Pocket Flares
Bullydog GT ( Bullys Performance)

Here are some pictures From the beginning

All Stock


2" Ready lift, 18" Ballistic Jester Fuel 35x12.5r18 Mud Grippers


Addition of Iron Cross bumper and Badlands 12.5 Winch


The Newest Modification Being done. SEM bedliner paint job... ( this is a picture the shop has sent me)


The grille, bumpers, still need to be done, as well as installing the fender flares and side steps. It is being professionally done, SEM bedliner has a bit smoother and more consistent texture.

** This is a controversial mod, some hate it some love it. I use my truck as a Truck. I haul, tow, mud and travel across the country for work. she takes everything I put in her way. Adding a layer of protection to her is better than continuously putting her in the shop for body repairs, which is time I don't have to waste. **

I will Post better pictures when i pick her up and take her to the lake. so subscribe for updates!


Next up.... 6" RCX accompanied by 5100s ( Bullys Performance )

possibly. It would finished out the black-out.

however...i think it'd be unique and look sick to leave them as is. you know? I actually kind of like how they look now. It'll be easier to tell once it's all complete

I am going to steal your truck the moment it is finished. I have been wishing about doing that my truck.. It looks amazing.. I think headlights would look good eithor way, but I will have to see it when it is all done, then maybe you should get black housings and tint the tails too.

How slow must your days be going right now.. Whenever I'm waiting for parts to come in or trucks in the shop.. Feels like hours are years.

Had to go to the shop to "look" at it, the shop says...



Initial reaction.... Drive it off a cliff...
The entire driver side was f*cked up because one of the gallons was old and hardened in the gun. The "texture" ( if you could even call it that ) looked like runny rubber paint. Needless to say they are fixing what is messed up with it. and then going respray to get it to the texture I want. which is this....


As Well as making the bedliner supply company pay for at least the gallon they f*cked up, what ever amount needed to fix it. and more hopefully.
