Sadly, this is the only stock image I have of her:
.

Mounted my fire extinguisher behind the driver's seat, since nobody ever sits there:


Gopro blackout housing for those fun trips:


Upgraded the brakes with EBC rotors/pads:



And then there was last weekend. For her second birthday, she got a little jacked:


Other than installing my intake, changing oil and other tedious maintenance items, this was my first "real" upgrade on any vehicle I've owned -- man was it fun! I've got my share of cuts and bruises, but there's really nothing more satisfying than getting your hands dirty and conquering something new and challenging. It took me a total of 12 hours ::grin::, but I got it done, and couldn't be happier. I drove 2 1/2 hours both ways for a fishing trip this weekend, and everything is still torqued down with no noise *knock on wood*.











That's it for now. I've got sliders and a rear bumper being made, as well as a few more smaller mods coming up. I'll have more pics when the time comes!

Pics update

So I've got a few things done in the past few weeks and got her washed today, so here's some pics.

My newest addition...Shrock sliders!:thumbsup::



Installed my Shrock skids yesterday. Engine/trans/trans case:





Painted my tow hooks:



Installed my toolbox and hi-lift mount:



After her bath:



Also got these small projects completed:

-rear axle vent mod
-Helios Optix LED headlights
-replaced all other lights with LED (except fogs)
-front wheel spacers mounted
-Wheelskins eurotone steering wheel cover

I've got a oil catch can on order from Saikou Michi and my TAG rear bumper should be done in the next month or so.

Both supportive and critical comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

Really nice rig. I like the direction this build is going.
Thanks, Jen!

How did you mount the fire extinguisher?
I just eyeballed the location really, making sure that I left the seat belt usable, just in case. I used the provided mounting bracket and self-tapping screws. It's really sturdy!

How did you mount up two tow hooks?
Our trucks come with the drivers side mounting location, just not the actual hook. I saw a thread on this site pointing to these guys so I shot them an email ([email protected]) and they got it to me in 2 days.

Keep in mind that it's shipping from the UK....I paid ~$40 in shipping charges. :surprise:

There's been a couple guys on here (I think in the same thread from above) that added a second passenger side hook to their drivers side. Much easier to come by.

What height is your saws set to ? And any issues with your 285s with the wheel spacers thanks

They're set to the stock height PRG sets them to...I haven't measured since the day I installed them, but I know I had close to 3.25" of lift up front. I've been meaning to, so let me measure tonight when I get home and I'll get back to you.

And any issues with your 285s with the wheel spacers thanks
I had to do the pinch-weld and melt mods. Quite a bit of both, I might add. I still get a little contact with the lining at full flex, but I can live with it. YMMV.
