Talking My Truck(s) Build Thread.

Cant say i've seen any build threads (havent looked too much) but here's a few pics of my progress since i've gotten them. I'll start out with the 1997 4x4.


Was originally bought as my winter beater, but the truck was in too good of condition to beat on.


First brought it home. It had a full size Westin plow (not pictured) that was installed a few days before i purchased, so it was never used.

Removed the shell, and throw on the lariat rims from my other truck.




Got the itch, so ordered some Fuel Hostages, and some Federal Couragia M/T's for it.




Was planning on doing some camping, and the girlfriend at the time was hesitant on sleeping in a tent, so i put the shell back on.





And thats how she sits. The plow is no longer put on, i had no real use for it to begin with. I got a few mods on the way currently. And plan on adding just a few cosmetics to it. No lift planned, i have no need for it.

This is my 1997, 2wd truck. Was given to me when i was 16. My parents had it since 99, and i told them i wanted it since day one.

How she began:



My dad later added the chrome lariats to it.



When i got her i threw on some new rims, and thought about my plans.



Later, a 3/4 Belltech drop kit was ordered.




I got tired of my front end, and wanted some fog lights. So i upgraded to the 99+ Front bumper, with a Lightning style lower valance.







I have some ptm, and smoothing planned for this one. Maybe another inch or two of drop all around.

And for the haters, who say a lowered truck is useless:

Looking good. I've always been a fan of lowered trucks.

replied to your pm!

And an update on the black truck. Ordered an Aries bull bar, got it on. And the 6" light si had dont fit. So now im going with an alternate idea. Plate location is temporary until i get time to mount it properly. Only pic for now, weathers been garbage.
