New thread for new truck, time to forget the past and continue forward.
purchased truck to look for work out of town, as ass backwards as that sounds, it made sense.

from the beginning Purchase in April for an ungodly amount from a shady dealer.


First things first needs some better down road lighting, i live in the country and deer are not afraid of cars. and a few more pics.



after which the factory divider tape was removed, it was peelaing faded and flaking in all spots.



then removed the Valance becasue i didn't like it, and put in a plate to protect my filter and lower fan



which was followed by a 2" body lift and 98+ rear bumper



and a bed liner ( duplicolor from walmart was cheap and it sucks)



Over head console


new tires







Factory tach cluster (thanks to deathpheonix99)

camera setting show my 2led bulb as opposed to my 3led it isn't noticeable while sitting in front of it


LED 4wd indicator




Factory fog switches to keep up the stock ish look ( again thanks to deathoheonix99)



next to a Z


110v outlets( after doing they are in the way and going to relocated)


Christmas gifts from the girl



Blazer tire carrier



played in the snow some more


then changed out the upper and lower Ball-joints, front shocks, outer CV boots, and tire-rods




received new wheels for it and black lug nuts



Started the Double Din install

The bumper in some of the pics is an entire project on its own.

Started out in cardboard


and progressed to steel


to the point it is now



I have been grinding welds down and finishing edges so i can get something on it to keep it from rusting any further until i get a chance to continue fab on it

I have LED bulbs on the way for the corner markers, interior curtocy lamps, and Rear tails.

Washed it to day, and covered the bumper in bed-liner last night

Indeed it is

My starter has been pissing me off, the old one would click after i drove constant 50miles or more, the new one clicks right out of the box, i ran a new ground 10g, and cleaned the positive lead on both ends, hopefully that will fix it untill i have money to make new cables. Im thinking of going 0g on all main power and ground cables.

Edit, It turned 160k this morning too.
