Really a great looking truck; white shines up so nicely. And I like the mods, in place or planned. Clearly you have given them thought. Looks like you removed the Pro 4X badging on the bed. Did you decide it was not working with the Cap??

A corner of one of the decals peeled up while I was washing it. I may replace them but it's low on the priority list for now.


Installed the Hefty Fabworks rock sliders today. These things are build like a tank. Chris @ Hefty said they were Apocalypse Proof. He wasn't lying. Installation was a breeze. Completely bolt-on. Didn't have to drill anything. Literally installed them in my apartment parking space in about 45 minutes. Would have been quicker if I'd had my floor jack handy.

Great, I can really relate to your truck! I recently bought a white 2013 Pro-4X.

Which specific options did you get on the rock sliders?

Thx,
Jon

Finally got the rest of my lift components. Now, since I'm temporarily living in Colorado and all my tools are at my house in TN, I need to find somewhere to install all this stuff.

I saw a place in Denver that's apparently a full-service shop that you pay hourly and do your own work. I might give that a try. It sucks having $10k+ in tools that are 1200 miles away.

I also have 99% of what I need to install my OBA setup. There will be some fabrication and welding involved for that so I'm not sure how I will approach that. The fabrication part will be simple as my company out here has a small machine shop. But there isn't a welder so I'll probably temp-bolt everything together then take it somewhere to be welded. Even though I bought an aluminum 3-gallon tank, I'm probably going to use these cool oxygen tanks I scooped up instead. They're like the portable ones you see old people use that need oxygen. I got 4 and only needed 2 so once I get the tank mount setup fabricated I'll probably make up a second one and offer it here.

I can't remember the options Jon... I think I got all options but I'm not sure. Are you in Murfreesboro TN? That's where I'm from. (Just working in CO for a bit)

I have Radflo coilovers, PRG UCA's, new bump stops, Deaver AAL, lift shackles(hangers), and bilstein 5100's. Should be good for about 3" of lift all together - which is all I need.

Yup, that'll do it. That's about what I've got on mine at the moment and I'm sitting right at 3". Don't forget the trim the coil bucket a bit so the uniball clears to make sure you get all the droop you can out of it and eliminate bucket contact

Great looking truck. Looks like a pretty sweet trail rig now too. Time for some trimming?
