Hey again not much done to the truck since i last posted. I got my gauge pod in and the 2 gauges installed.


Today drove 4 hours to get some 315-75-16 3 bfg mud terrain km and 1 pro comp extreme.Got them for $200 with stock dodge rims decent tread on them. They rub on the lower control arms at full lock so going to get 1/4 spacers. The jack slipped on the axle and bent the steering stabilizer it wont let me turn right so took that off I'm going to buy a dual stabilizer this week.

Have not got anything else done on the truck. The truck been down for the last week.
I was coming back from school and all of a sudden rear right brake locked up then broke free and then i lost all brake pressure so i eased it home thankfully it was only a mile away so i didn't run out of brake fluid. I got her home and checked the under the truck at the backing plate and my brake hose was twisted round the axle a couple times and the parking brake cable was ripped off. I was thinking how did it do that and then i notice the backing plate was upside down. All the bolts/nuts and the metal around them are ripped and sheared off. Here some pics. i don't know what caused this i am going to call some junk yards Monday to see if i can find another backing plate. I got a few mods coming soon i bought some cab lights and im working on a tire gate in my welding class.

So put on my skidplate i been working on in my welding class. I haven't put on the side pieces yet. They are for the fog lights that i'm going to mount behind them.
Here the final look on the template.
