Today I'm starting an official mod thread for my truck. All mod's I've done and will do in the future will be placed in this thread. T o start this thread off I will post pictures in order of some mods that I have already done. Then, I will add to the thread as more mods come in!!

I'll start it off with a pic of the truck completely stock when I brought her home.

Soon after I bought the truck, I had the front window's tinted 20% and I installed some ATA nerfs.



I like these nerf bars alot. They were pretty cheap and so far they are holding up great, even after this horrible winter we are having in MI. They also have a lifetime warranty.

After that I installed some GTO taillight cover's. Got a great deal on Ebay. This was IMO easier to do than tinting the taillight's with VHT. In the future I plan on adding LED's to the reverse light's and 3rd brake light, then tinting the 3rd brake light with VHT.

I then added a Flowmaster 40 series muffler and a K&N drop in filter. I have no pics of these mods but I will take some today and add them later. Plus everyone know's what a muffler and K&N filter looks like:LOL: Oh, and I also plan on adding some new tips in the future.

Moving forward, I then added a Curt hitch receiver and a chrome hitch. The hitch receiver was very easy to install using something they call the "fishwire technique". Basically what happens here is you attach the nuts and bolts to a wire and fish them through the bumper support and out the mounting holes. Pretty cool idea from the manufacturer.

This next mod is still in progress as I have not had much time to myself lately. I'm in the middle of painting my engine cover. I like the idea I have for it now but I might change this in the future. I'm doing the outside red, and the middle Brilliant Black with red letters. I also plan on painting the airbox to match. Here's a few pics...
Stock cover......



And here's what I have so far....

Stay tuned for the next 2 mod's that I just ordered today!!!:Wow1::smileup: Some of you may know what one of the mod's is. But I'm not telling what the other one is. It's simple, yet extremely practical and considered a must have mod. That is all for now!:wow:

Oh yeah, one more mod I forgot about!! I also installed some AVS in channel vent visors. These are awesome and reduce alot of wind noise. Got a good deal on them also. $40 for the set of 4.
