Yea soon as I think I can deal with how the truck is for a while I notice something else I an do so then I dive into that and then go hey I could do this and this also while I work on that. It is a vicious vicious cycle that I love oh so much lol
Yup. Would be nice but by the time I add a prerunner/light bar, I can weld plates in, it will look tough. I still.need a sport grill and 3rd gen fogs for the bumper, oh and a rear bumper haha, might do a 3rd or 4th gen
Oh I had a great idea for lighting as well for the front end of my truck.. Just got to get the brush guard on to see if it will work out as good as I hope it will. If it does work then you and I might just have the sunniest trucks on the forum heh
Awesome. I'm looking forward to it. I was actually pondering a set in the rear but that strictly an idea now, other things are on the plate for mods. I finally was able to throw some reps your way for the lift.
Ahh gotcha. Yeah they're pricey. The dealer said the one on mine was like $2,000 installed but I didn't have to pay for it. Just paid msrp minus the $6,000 rebate. Now the back bumper is gonna be around $1,000 installed
Thanks for the reps lol. Yea they run way to much for the HD bumpers man. You can pick up a brush guard and make it just as good, sometimes even better, than the replacement bumper. Plus most the HD's that are somewhat cheaper than most usually stick waaaaaay out infront of the truck which is a no go for me. Needs to sit up closer to the grille and have a winch area in the lower bumper section. Til I can find that setup I am sticking with a brush guard.
I'm thinking a winch between the frame behind my bumper, the 08bumper makes for a lot of room since it curves out... then run the cable through the gap in the bumper, weld up some feed trays for the cable. Hmm I like that idea.
See I just gave ya a new project. I signed on here at the wrong time cause I noticed a post by RIPP. They are working on a SC kit for 05-08 and may be offering a group buy.. Needless to say I am saving money up now for a kit so I can pick it up soon as it is available. I love/hate this forum so much.
For sure on the new engine. I've been doing some homework and I'm thinking a 318 stroker, turning it into a 396. The stroker kit is 1300. Going this route means same wiring harness, same Ecuador, and same everything. Just would need a custom program built for the ecu. That's the plan. Along with leds haha
