Ok, I'll start from the beginning. This truck was bought about a year ago. The pictures below are what it looked like when we first got it. It had the cage, kings, beadlocks (one spare was not matching), fiberglass, cst lt kit, etc... It had all the basics of a good off-road truck, but needed a lot of work, which I've slowly been doing with what little money I make during the summer.

I'll post more recent pictures after these.

Sorry these pictures are small. They're too big to upload with RDC so I tried imageshack, but they don't enlarge enough. I'll figure something out for the next ones.

i could make a list... but i don't remember half of it.
i remember the most important things were: beadlocks powdercoated red, artcarr shifter, center console cut and modified, tubing work on front bumper and interior, painted cage and frame rails, speakers (they didnt work when i got it), kc lights front and rear, fixed a gas leak, fixed a header leak, sealed holes in floorboard, wrapped cage with pipe insulation and neoprene wraps, rebuilt tbi, calibrated speedo and gas sender, etc.. little stuff like that.
this summer i plan on getting louvers in the hood and a paint job, all white with red and black stripes. and also, if i make enough, 4.56 gears with a locker and a quick release steering wheel, and maybe some more tubing work on the interior.
i also might take the back seats out and just have a sound system put in, because the 4x6 pioneers i have can only go so loud, and i'm sure you know how much road noise i have to deal with.

Nice truck, I live in Pinon Hills and I have never seen this truck before

Really? I go to Serrano so it's usually there, if not I'm usually around the Baldy Mesa area on weekends. Once I get it painted and a sound system put in, it should stand out a little more ;)

haha well i didn't think i had the "skill" so thanks for the compliment!

I found it on whiteboystoys.com but it was on a couple other websites, probably here too.

I'm not EXACTLY sure who did the cage. It came with a Desert Works sticker on it, so I assume it was them. The fiberglass is all glassworks unlimited, the rims are champion, the suspension on the front is CST with Kings, the fuel cell is jaz. That's about it. Everything else is all small stuff that I've done here and there.

I'll probably lay low for a while until I make some money over the next couple months and get more tubing work and a paint job... Then i'll come back and model for you some more haha
