Hit a pole, so ordered a Shrockworks bumper. Decided I needed a front to match, so ordered a Front Shrock bumper. Then needed to get lifted so the bumpers look better. Can't lift without getting bigger tires (and smaller wheels)...and the cycle continues....

Truck looks sharp! How's wheelin with 20 inch wheels?
Ok, awesome. I think I finally got it and will do it with all upcoming posts. But thanks! And it has its ups and downs. LOL I usually swap out for the 18" wheels when I go off-roading, but have a few times with the 20's. Glad they're still holding up w/o any scratches at all!

Love the build dude! Where did you get your LED's? Are they underdash as well?
Thanks man! I got them off of ebay. I purchased 12 LED's (package) for around $80. They are only the dome LED's though, never got around to install the underdash.

Final update

EDIT: Never mind, decided to keep it instead of selling it.

Well, turns out the buyer who I originally sold this truck to, could not come up with the money quick enough. I talked to the wife and other friends, and decided to keep this truck just purely as a nice project car. I am pretty young and have never owned a car just to fool around with, so this will be my first. I still went ahead and purchased a 2006 Nissan 350z with only 6K miles on it as my daily driver! :)

Just a quick update, I have garaged this beast until I recieve a few packages and get things taken care of. I am STILL waiting for my Shrockworks rear bumper (going on 15 weeks) and will put that and the rear differential cover on. I had a bit of rear quarter panel body damage I am taking care of next week. While I am at the body shop, I will also get rid of those hideous window visors (paint will be peeled, so getting it re-painted and fixed up). I ordered a Shrockworks front bumper (with prerunner bar and winch) as well as the rock sliders. I will be ordering the PRG Advanced Coilover kit (upper a-arms, radflo's, bils rear shocks, 2 inch AAL) next week, to take care of my awful suspension. Right now I am running 2.5" front and 1.5" rear, but will be upgrading to 3" front and 2" rear. The shrockworks front bumper will bring it down about .25" though. I might go Fabtech 6" Lift in the future, but not for now. Side note: I will have front spacers, rear blocks, front bumper, front HID 6000K fog lights and front grill for sale soon, whenever I recieve these new products. Please contact me beforehand for purchasing them from me.

As soon as I recieve and put on my rear bumper, I am getting a back up camera put on (going to the in dash reciever already there) as well as an alarm/remote start. This should be done the middle of next month, along with the bed cover, volant intake and superchips. Rigid industries 40" light bar should be on soon also, attached via the roof rack. Talking to a couple buddies about throwing some massive subwoofers in custom boxes in the bed (about 6 12's or 4 15's is what I have in mind). If this is the case, second battery/alternator will be added soon.

Just so I understand you...you went from parting it out to dropping a sheet ton of money into it. That's awesome! Let me know when you want to install the suspension. A buddy and I have done that whole setup a couple of times now. I work for beer, he works for pizza

HAHA I am an idiot, I know.

But, yea that will be awesome! I should get the suspension very soon, and will definitly need help on it. I was originally planning on purchasing a brand new sports car (newer chargers, 370z's, etc.) but found the 350z for a great price and very low mileage! Could not resist. I had a sudden urgency to sell the truck, found someone who would purchase it for a decent price as is but could he not come up with all of the money. So, figured I would keep it as a nice project truck= Shrock it out and make it unique! Went on a buying spree and got some new toys for it.

When I get all of my packages, I will bring it up to you guys in PA and we can work on both of our trucks there. I'll get the beer, you get the tools ready :)
