Just wanted to share some pics of my very first new truck and the work i've done so far. I liked the way the platinums were painted so i took off all the chrome and plastic and had it powdercoated/painted. Usually the first thing i do is a lift but i'm saving that for a couple months. I'm still not sure i like the white emblem in the front. ive also done the antenna, tint, debadge (painted 4x4 badge), hella supertones horns. If I can you with anything that i've done so far let me know.
Here are my next projects, and some that i'll need your help on:
i want 6-7" but i do not want the front higher than the back. If anything, i would like the back a little higher than the front. I'm thinking 6" in the front and 4" in the back. I do not plan on off-roading much so maybe one of the cheaper lifts. I have seen the lifts that you can adjust or add a shackle or whatever to give you the ability to raise/drop the front/rear 1" or so to get the stance i want. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Planning on 35" Trail Grapplers on 20" blackish wheels. I wan't the wheels tucked inside the truck as much as possible, or at least not stick out far. i think i'm pretty much stuck at 20x9 wheels with 35x12.5 tires but i'm not sure on the backspacing yet?
Weathertech Floor Mats:
i would have pulled the trigger on these already, but i have a hard time believing the 2014 mats are EXACTLY the same as the 2013 with the new body style and all. can anyone confirm that they fit perfectly? i saw the same product number for both years.
I guess i'll have to wait until i have more options on this one. for now i'm trying to finish this tasker script that will launch spotify and start streaming my playlists when my truck turns on and connects to my phone. by the way, does anyone know the exact resolution on the touch screen?
Amp Research Powersteps:
I'm set on these i think. as long as i don't hear bad things on durability.
As you know, storage is limited. Looking for a console organizer for the short term. I don't really want to take up half my bed with a toolbox. I would really like to buy/build a box for under the back seats. i don't mind cutting the carpet, tearing out the "foam", and buying/building an organizer and maybe a sub for under the back seat as long as i plan and am prepared, which pretty much means someone else has to do it first.
sorry so long...thanks for the help.
