Default My truck from stock to now

Well I finally discovered this part of the forum the other day!! lots of cool vehicles in here! so here is mine! I bought my truck in September from my dad when I got home from working in Northern Manitoba for the summer... Had 127,500 kms (80K miles) and was stock other than a trifecta tonneau cover.

1st thing I did with in day of having it was the 2" ready lift level, with in days of that I had got a set of 305/55/20 (33x12.5) Dick Cepek FC-II radials as the tires that were on the truck were done.

only pic I have of it stock

With level kit and tires:


3rd came a K&N CAI - my buddy had one on his old sierra and it sounded great on the 5.3 so I figured on the hemi it would be awesome, and it is!


4th came the tow mirrors (but messed up and forgot to get heated ones ) So I might put the stock ones back on for the winter


Next mod was 2 KC Daylighter 130 watt lights for behind the grill (to help when the highbeams are on..) This was probably the most fun MOD so far as I had to figure out where to put the switch and run the wires through the firewall etc.
with high beams and KC's on - you can see how much higher the kc's are


where I put the switch I was hoping for a stick on switch like PIAA has but oh well


Next (and last for now!) Came LED lights! Big thanks to this forum for the led section because I would have never even thought of doing led lighting! I did the map and dome lights, Plate, reverse, cargo and 3rd brake light all in cool white (except brake) These pics arent the best as iphone at night with no flash sucks.



I think that is it LOL Next thing to tackle (wish I didnt have to) is this...

damn people in the school parking lot.... I bought a new (used) bumper and painted it black... the bolts holding the old one on are pretty seized so I might need to torch them a bit.... and I doubt I will be able to push the corner of the box out, there is a big (flimsy) bracket in the right in the way so I will try my best to push as much of the dent out as possible...

Next thing that needs to be done (redone) is the rear fenders

hopefully they can hold off until spring, they are getting pretty nasty though


I think thats it, sorry for so many pics, I go picture happy! let me know what you think!

I think I need to learn how to resize the pics! just to add, the very very first thing I did when I got it (same day) was put the polaris sticker on the back window, I had to cut it into 3 pieces to fit in the slider... I have the same sticker to go on the front windsheild eventually. I was very fortuante to get an amazing apprenticeship placement in N. manitoba with a large mining company (world largest) which helped fund buying the truck cash and everything that went onto it, I will be done school in april and can start working full time again but dont have to return back so thats when modding will begin again There are tons of things I would like to do next year!!

Mopar, although its not a mod, my drivers side wheel bearing too a crap, so I replaced that at a buddies place yesterday because he has a hoist, I am doing both lower ball joints tmrw then getting an aligbnment, it should ride like brand new I hope, it has been clunking pretty bad for a while.....

as far as actual mods, my GF had bought me a tail gate light bar for x mas, but it wasnt going to work with the opare tire hole and my tail gate would mangle it, so we returnmed it and I ordered a N Fab light bar for the front and am going to order 2 more daylighters and mount all 4 on the light bar... light bar is special ordser, coming from texas so I wont be in until next week due to the snow storms we have been getting this week... I cant wait to get it and get 2 more lights to help with hwy driving in the middle of no where....... I also installed silver star zxe's in the headlights as my 8 year old bulbs were pretty tired

What's your plan of attack for the fender rust? It doesn't look that bad, shouldn't be too hard to fix. I have some tips for you for painting it and getting it to blend/match instead of having a tape line, let me know if you want some help with that. I've done it a few times and it works great...obviously not perfect, but better than a clean line.
