This is the only stock picture I have of it (minus the nerf bars, they were on there when I bought it). The truck had 154xxx on it. The 4x4 was messed up, the teeth were worn off the intermdiate shaft coming out of the front differential on the drivers side. Replaced the intermediate shaft, CV axle, and the CV joint in the front drive shaft. The rubber boots for the ball joints were all ripped even though none of them were bad so while we had the front end all tore apart we replaced all the ball joints and upper A-arms.

Next I had to try something Ive always wanted. I ordered interior and exterior LED lights. They were fairly easy to install, I have 6 LED tubes under the truck that are 7 different colors. I have 4 green LED tubes in the interior.

The tires didnt have much life left in them when I got the truck so I started the search for new set of shoes. After looking and looking I ended up getting a great deal on a set of 17" Vision 375 Warriors, not exactly the finish I was originaly looking for but I could pass up the price. All four wheels, lug nuts and tax came to $450. Then went and got a set of 285/70 cooper discoverer AT3 mounted on them. Took it home and cranked down the torsion keys to level the front end out, then took it to get a front end alignment.

I had to do something with the tail lights so I went to oriellys and bought a can of VHT. Then got to thinking about it and decided tint the fog lights also and give my headlights eyebrows.

I bought a remote start kit, no fun at all to hook up. But works perfect once it was all done.

I was at the wrecking yard the other day seeing if I could get lucky and find a set of tow mirrors. I crawled up under an 02 dodge single cab just to look and saw that it had a flowmaster. So I figured what the heck, might as well try it for 15$. Took it home and just used an exhaust clamp to attach it. Pretty pleased with it, eventually I will take it to the muffler shop and get it welded on turn it to duals and put some nice chrome tips on it.
