As you can see, most of these mods are inspired by other forum member builds, and I thank you all for the
ideas, especially Stevet47 for the rear storage, I was vexed by the completely useless rear seats in the KC,
even my grandkids couldn't sit in them comfortably... great use of that space.

Possible future plans...

Front bumper Rhino lined, winch mount in front bumper, roof rack and tray installed.

Truck looking real good, man.
Your KC area appears huge! Perhaps that's a result/perception of removing the KC's rear seats? I'm seriously debating this mod at the moment.
Was there any particular reason you did not Rhinoline your front fascia/bumper? Just wondering if there is/was an issue with it being plastic as opposed to the metal body panels.
Sending a PM soon.

Your truck looks good, I especially really like that rear bumper. Is that the one that you can mount a winch in? and how was the fitment?

Yeah, it looks like more room than there actually is in the pics, but it's
still a good amount of space. I really needed it because I carry a lot of
sheet goods and lumber in the bed and didn't want to take bed space with a
box back there.

I didn't get the bumper done because I'm debating replacing it. The liner
guy did want to spray it, so I guess it CAN be done. Although he told me
he couldn't spray the tailgate spoiler because it's plastic, next time I'm
over there I'll ask him what's up with that.

Painted the grill black to match the other trim on the truck. Just used some stuff I had
in the garage, Rust-Oleum Undercoating that I bought to use after the lift install but
decided not to use and satin black paint

Installed a Tekonsha P3 trailer brake controller. I only tow trailers for the kids right
now, but hoping to get a camper in a few years when the wife retires.

Installed it below the dash and the first time I got in the truck I whacked my knee on
it, so Moved it to the door finisher. Now it doubles as a phone storage spot. :)

Done spoiler and debadge, got rid of dealer badge and tailgate issues. I actually, don't have that much
problem with "sushi" vehicles, other than my brother is like... they're not made by Union labor....
jeez! don't know if I should apply for a union appliance life card.
All I want is a functional truck... help me out here! Well it's not all I ask... my brother's an ***... but
stilll my brother.
Not understanding, your truck is made in the U.S. by U.S. workers....

Installed Rugged Rocks : RR-11256-180-HP_b 180 amp alternator along with 1/0 battery cable upgrade
and voltmeter to support and monitor it. The alternators output at idle is 130 amps which allows me
to run a contractors table saw intermittently off my inverter.
