Finally I ordered some new headlights for the truck, and they look great! Took me a while to get to the bolts, especially the driver side. But they look much better than factory. Hopefully they perform well. Right now my passenger high beam isn't working. I think it's a bad bulb, and the factory harness that you use to put onto the new lights doesn't fit quite as snug. I can forsee myself needing to fix that after a few times out on bumpy roads or one trip off roading. But I'll deal with that when it comes. Haha.

I'm not sure if I'm more impressed with your awesome work on this truck or the fact that your toaster is doing the posting for you!

Great job!

Haha thank you! Yes, what an interesting toaster I have haha. I'm excited to finally be getting to do more to the rig. Long overdue : )

Lol thanks! I don't know about the nastiest, some of these guys have crazy builds. But I'm working to make it perfect ;P haha
I got more plans coming soon. Just ordered the lift for it, supposed to get in after a week or so. This Friday is my oil leak fix. I'll update after I get the rig back after the weekend.

New picture just running errands today, parked in the woods for a picture : D

Got my truck in the shop getting it worked on. Finally got my rear main seal leak done. While it had the transmission dropped I had the oil pan seal and transmission seal replaced.

Playing around with my phone photo editor. Truck is on the lift now to get my lift kit!




I'm looking into getting some new rubber too after it's lifted. Not sure what brand yet. I would love some mud tires, but since this is my daily driver, I am going to get some all-terrain tires. BFG KO2 would be my favorite (to match the Jurassic Park movie Jeep) but I like the Nitto Terra Grapplers, Hankook Dynapros, and a few other ones too. Will update in a week or so when I get new tires.

So just to bring things up to date, I have the truck back now, sitting on new shoes, 265/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers AT! Very happy with the road performance so far.



No problems driving in Hurricane Matthew last week (though luckily we had very little problems in my area). Haven't tested them offroad yet except for a few quick "shortcuts" home, but man are they way more responsive in soft sand than my highway tires (245/60/16 Lionharts). After I spend some more time with them I'll say more.

Also! Got a suspension lift now!!! I'm very excited and love how it's looking with the suspension and tires. 2.5" Rough Country lift, new upper control arms, add-a-leafs, shocks, and shackles in the rear. Looks higher now but will settle down after some time.








I'll post some better pictures when I get a good chance. Got a lot going on right now. But I sure am happy with the truck!

I pulled an all-nighter and finally finished the Herculiner bedliner.
Had a problem with the blue tape. It ripped off some of my paint (surprised me, I guess because it's such old paint). So I had to redesign that area. My beautiful girlfriend gave me the good idea design. It turned out better than expected and I'm very happy with it.

Bed sanding prep



Spot where painters tape removed paint



First coat done!



Then I decided that I wanted to do the rocker panels and bottom of the body. I've been skeptical of this idea, debating on if I wanted to do the fenders black, red, or leave them. Decided to leave the fenders silver and do the bottom only.



Doing the bottom, I think it looks awesome



Fueling up today! Bedliner was still soft, supposed to take 3-5 days to cure. After that I'm throwing the roll bar back in and the tool chest. Going to get new bolts for them too.



Here are some shots of the rear where the paint got ruined. Had to match both sides, but I think it gives it a sporty look and I like it more than just straight back like I originally planned.





Also added a gap guard the other night, just never posted it. Eventually I want to hit this with some bedliner spray paint I think so it all blends together.



I hope that it holds up, so far doing 60 mph it has done fine. But might eventually tear, hope not for a while haha. I don't like that I had to drill into my bed, because now I have screws sticking up in my bed. But I think I'll live with it for now, anyone have any ideas to solve that problem?

Also, this is a good picture to show how the new tires look on the truck. They definitely sit out a wider than my last set, which is why I justified the bedliner on the rocker panels haha.



So I suspect that in a year or two I will need to redo the Herculiner do to people's reviews on it, but that's understandable.
Also, anyone have experience with fading? I'm worried about the Florida sun fading the Herculiner. Saw one person using a UV protectant, is it worth it?
