Default Money pit build thread

Hello all! So here is the truck as it sits right now...I'm currently in Afghanistan and ordering all kinds of stuff....Its long over due...but I am pumped to finally kick this thing off....

Rough Country 6" suspension lift.......arrived!
Rough Country 1.25" body lift.......arrived!
Iron Bull bumper (Defender 4).......calling tonight/tomorrow night pending work
Smitty built M1 Grille.........ordered
Smitty built fender flares.......ordered
Amp Research power running boards........ordered
Anzo USA U-bar headlights.........ordered
EGR in channel rain guards..........ordered
Ram air hood (true ram air with high flow filter not painted)........ordered

Still looking for 17x9" rims
Still looking for 37x12.50/13.50x17 tires
4.56 gears will be in the near future winch as well...

Exploring rear locker options (opinions welcomed and encouraged)
Also looking for opinions on performance things...chips, throttle body, etc.
As well as I have a poll on here about going with a roof light bar or smoked Recon cab lights with light bar on the Iron bull bumper.

Currently the truck don't have much...Cherry bomb extreme, Fox box with JL 10" W6's, and lots of Plasti dip from a drunken night with my bro. Let me know what you guys think, suggestions, etc....thanks all.

Also Im green to the forum...so if this is misplaced let me know...I checked out others builds and some also seem to be a work in progress (the word Complete is throwing me off)...so I thought I would throw it up here and test the waters...

You're in the right forum man. That's a good looking truck as it is. Your build is very similar to mine, but a bit taller. I'm liking the sound of it already. That's a lot of money going on it, but it'll look good.

Are you in the Army or a contractor? Either way, be safe over there.

Thanks man...It is a lot of money...I'm justifying to the Mrs. as, "I have to buy all this stuff so that I save money not buying a brand new Cummins babe"!

I was in the Marine Corps...Now I am kind of a consultant (FSR) with a counter IED program utilizing a UAV. Its good stuff....Money jumped up a good bit from the military wage, and no angry Gunny chewing everyone out....We do have military OIC's though...got to keep them happy.

LOL, the funny part is, with all that you're buying, you could have just gotten the Cummins. I already thought about it.

So do you fly the UAVs from a remote location like at a base? I hear you about the pay jump. I was in the Navy back in the beginning of the century, and pay then compared to now makes me wonder how we were ever able to buy anything, lol.

I mean...if I was to buy a Cummins....I would get the one I want...Which I almost did 2 weeks ago...but it was 56k...My truck books at 29k....So I don't feel to bad about dumping 5-10k into what I got. Its a good truck and only has 24k mi on it. Plus I don't have any toys that require a Cummins at the moment...But I do know what your sayin, lol.

And yes...we are located with our UAV's over here...Don't wanna say too much past that on social media.

I hear ya man. I was just more curious about the tech, because I do ROVs for the offshore oilfield side (tethered subs). We'll have to talk outside of this sometime.

My truck stickered at 46 but I got it for 40, and I've put over 14 into it so far. I bought it in January and only has 3700 miles on it. I talked to a place that had a 12 2500 with 25k miles on it, and talked about a straight swap. They wanted 45, and I said truck for truck. They said mine and another 5k, I said later. Would have been nice, but I'm not dishing out more on an older truck to do the same things right off the bat.

So, when are you going to get the lift installed?

Interesting...I would like to talk to you off line...as I used to roughneck in Colorado before going back into aviation. I heard rumors that jobs similar to yours hire (or used to) former crewcheifs of the military...which I used to gun on Hueys. Thought maybe that plus my current job (which right now is more of the mechanical side) could land me something decent in the states. Are you working a block schedule? If your interested lets get a PM or facebook chat or something going...as this war is eventually going to go away and I need to explore some options!

At any rate...I get home (well I should be) in October...Going to try and knock out everything over a weekend with my brother...minus gears if I pick those up before coming home...
