The Punisher

I guess I need to do a build thread. My 03 is starting to show it's age so I started fixing it up in march. Did the roll on Herculiner bedliner on the bed and sides of the truck, I've been playing with LED light bars, I've already ordered the Calmini 3" lift. I have the Moto Metal Skull wheels 17x9 and I am waiting on the Kumho Road Venture Mts 265/70r17 which should be here friday.

I have been toying around with the idea of a 70s style air dam on the front. It would be made from diamond plate and sprayed black. This is a mockup I did in cardboard. I don't think it would effect clearance too much as it doesn't extend past the Go-Rhino Push bar. Still not sure about it.

Year:2003
Model:Crew Cab shortbed
Trim:6cyl XE 2wd
Color:Super Black





More pictures of the progress in my profile pic album for those who haven't seen it.

The Calmini is backordered so I don't know when that gets here. I will also do the ARB locker over the summer since my frontier is the 2wd model.

I also put in a new Sony head unit, Kicker speakers and an underseat Kenwood SW11 mini subwoofer. Sounds clearer and more full range than the factory sound. I just put in new leather from Leatherseats.com. VERY happy with those. Will gets pics tomorrow maybe. Lots of work but they look factory installed. I'm going to get the punisher logo embroidered in the headsets.

These are the wheels.



EDIT:


Per request these are some old pictures of the truck in the good ole days. Probably only a couple years old in these.

This is when it would sink like a rock in the sand and I had to be super careful. First thing I did when I bought it was put that brush guard on it (it is still on the truck) and those cheap autozone offroad lights. I didn't even hook them up for the first year..lol Then I welded in the ATV ramps in the bed and that was it. Ignored the poor thing until May of 2014.








Here is when I brought it home. You can just make out the date in the temporary tags.

i like it. it fits the motif. it may not benefit you in fuel economy, as its basically an air catch... BUT. hell it looks cool. i say go for it. i want to see a punisher themed truck and youre well on your way to it.

tell me more about that step tube youve cut up into the bull bar. how'd that work out.

Did you do a lot of prep before putting the liner on? It look's really good. I've been thinking about doing the sides, fenders, and bumpers on my truck.

Thanks guys. I'll probably make the airdam just to see how it looks. It won't cost much and it will be easy to remove if it looks like "too much". When I get the wheels mounted I am going to plasti-dip them black just to make them go along with the all black theme. If the skulls are too hard to see in black I will just peel off the dip.

Here are the hood pics. The clear coat is starting to go bad on the factory paint so I decided to have some fun with it.





Oh and this is sorta the look I am going for. In spirit anyway.

I think the rims look killer the way they are - but am interested to see them in all black.

Yea Zeb, I like them silver too, but I wanna see how they look in black to make them go with the black skull on the hood and when I do the headrests the skulls will be black too.

I taped everything off and sanded it all down. Not to the metal, just make it rough. Then I cleaned it with acetone. I did all the sides and the nose in one afternoon.
