Thanks. Been actually getting back into the truck some. I added some new tires and wheels. 17x8.5 w 315/70/17 this time. Actually sit taller than the 35 12.5 that were on it but tread seems narrower. Also replaced all the speakers inside and have a double din and reverse camera to go in shortly. Also have a dash cam I got for Christmas. Swapping in new hubs and Cv shafts since I know one the hubs is about to fall off after 3 years and one of the cv boots sprung a leak. Ned to also toss on the new steering rack and tie rods. Pulled apart the rear bumper for new powdercoat. After nearly 180K it is time to put some of the stockpiled parts on it.
That Muffler looked like it was in some serious pain towards the end of it's life. It's great to see the progression of the fabrication work go from simple to complicated and functional as the front bumper revisions progressed! Did you have the projectors custom made?
That muffler has been thru about 6 years of hell. The back ripped off when I fell they ice covered creek. Lost everything from muffler back.
Projector are aftermarket trash honestly. I tried every bulb n they suck. Hid, led, high dollar conventional--none are great. I am looking at the drop in retrofit projectors available for these housing
Some new work on the rig. Stripped off the roof rack and rear bumper swings for a re-do of configuration and powdercoating. Also played with one of the front grills and made it white for awhile. Need to pull off white strip on windshield and go back to regular tint ASAP as well. Also put in some LED headlight bulbs...not impressed. Think I will do a better projector and go back to HID bulbs again. Also added new door speakers since it was down to one working occasionally. Also got a new single sub to take up less room in the rear. Did get a double din head unit but it is not installed yet. Also picked up a couple new jerry cans to build the rear swing around cause i want a shelf/dual can holder that I can use more often. Slapped in some new hubs and tie rod, but need to regrease the splined disco and do the CVs when I get a bit more time. Been awhile, so its about time for basic maintenance.
Before the strip
Tires and wheels the wife actually picked out
On the truck. Ride nice and seem like they do pretty good.
Stripped down for the re-do
The grill for something different, but its already about to change the more I look at it. Easy silly fun when you got 3 spares.
Wow I’m in the market for a new DD/trail rig and I just stumbled upon an 08 at a killer price and was like meh what can I even do with this so I looked it up on OB app and you sir just made my decision for me lol
