I have been enjoying the truck. Making another to do list for next time I take it in. The first couple Bud built skid plates got put on and put some mileage on it. I must say the 4.88 gears, supercharger and 37s are a perfect match.

I know I know without pictures it didn't happen. I will work on it but it doesn't help that the weather has been crappy. When the clouds cleared today you could see fresh snow on the mountain tops...

The next big day in the shop will have to be install of the AIP bypass. Clearing codes every third start is getting old. The dealer has to fix the fuel gauge they mangled when they installed the SC. I don't want to put the rest of the skid plates on until they do that so I don't have to argue with them about taking the plates on and off.

Left to do: AIP Bypass, balance of skidplates, rear limit straps, front bumper trim, wire in the daytime leds, outer fender liners, bed cage/spare tire mount, bed liner, exhaust tip. vinyl wrap, jump, jump and repeat again

Any thoughts on a vinyl wrap something like these?

Been working so much have not done much more with the truck. With the lack of light this time of year its hard to get pictures. Also time of year when the truck will never be clean.

But since last updates we have got the top of the bumper plated in, replaced a yellow top battery that wouldn't hold a charge, and finished inner fender liners. Used black coroplast from a sign shop and riveted to fiberglass fender lip and used body fasteners on the inside.





The pictures don't do this mod justice but cuts down on the water and debris coming through all the nooks and crannies. The biggest benefit is it keeps the fenders from becoming giant glaciers.

Back in shop for V2.0 building rear bed cage to hang more lights and spare on then bed liner. Still undecided on wrap. I do plan on running to Fairbanks in the next couple weeks if I do I will drop you a line and stop along the way. Need some sunshine so I can get some better pictures.

Awesome build. You definitely have a truck to be proud of!

I'm giving serious thought to a long travel set up but hadn't really given thought to going under sprung in the rear until now... ummm.

Great idea using the coraplast, the utility of that stuff is endless. Also, have you given any thought of using that new bed rack for rear upper shock mounts?
