I figured since i'm upping the ante on mods and many more to come through to July, i'd better make a complete build thread.



Bone stock straight from the dealership, 10 miles on the speedo

Decided to make it look a little more mean with some black covers from GTO



Headlights



Taillights (new license plate for a personal touch )

Decided it was time to wake my neighbors up when I leave for work at midnight so first thing that came to mind? Super 10's!



Custom shop in LR, does great work!

The first rule on the body portion of this little project is 'if it ain't black or silver, it's gotta go!' The plain red third break light stood out way too much and i'm not going to ruin a perfectly good light with the VHT and they don't make covers for them so I got a little lit with RECON!





It'll look better once I get my tint (keep putting it off)



Cargo lights, I like the blueish hue they give off!

The first rule still applies so I decided it was time to debadge the sides, btw this has got to be the stickiest adhesive that I have ever dealt with...



And freshly debadged, no smokey residue to deal with and no scratching! highly recommend using a decal applicator for dirt bikes.



Now I know it's a breach of the first rule, but it looks good until my new open mouth grille comes in. My friend that works for mopar sent me a gift from the factory and i'm happy with it! R/T badge



I'll keep everyone posted on the many mods coming in the next few months, hope you like it

If you can't get it to separate contact Jeremy over at Retro Shop, he's great at color matching/blacking out headlamps and installing projectors. I had him do mine in DWB but keep the chrome housing and are worth every penny to me.

Trucks coming along nice man. And yea these guys are right, once the MODs start they do not stop til you can't think of anything else and then ya look more into this site and ya find something new. I am scared for when I get a new truck down the road because I already see how bad I am now with my current truck.

Thanks guys, now I need yall's help on making a decision. I've decided to incorperate a third color accent into my truck since I decided against an RBP grille and just get a base rivet grille and stick a custom emblem in it (silver, black, new color here). This color will be used on the custom emblems, LED's in the cab and headlights, hood stripes, and possibly the rims. I'm leaning towards red or light blue, since the custom badges will most likely be billet monster logos. Any suggestions?

Truck is looking good. For the 3rd color why not lime green, since you said you are doing Monster logos? I sorta wish my truck was green, I see a lot of lime green stuff I could put on it that won't match Orange at all.
