Here it is mostly stock ( it came with Dunlop LT225x##R15 tires, so I put 30x9.50 )



My next addition was several years later the bed cover ( how exciting :rolleyes: )



So now for the period where the truck started having fun.

First addition was the purchase of some 31x10.50 BFG A/T and some Eagle Alloy Rims.





Next came some home fabricated sliders [ 2 x 2 x 3/16 ]



And heres the more recent goodies...

Installed lockrite in the rear and brought the tires in with some new narrower wheels with better backspacing...





Started building a rear bumper and installed some Hella 500s on the stock front bumper until i can get something goin on the front...

Updates on the rear bumper build... [ 2 x 3 x 3/16 ]

Over the past 2 days I have added a receiver hitch and built a lighted license plate holder to fit in the receiver. Here are the pics of the work.

Some of the things that were used to build it...


Cover welds, may end up smoothing them out and having a flat surface at some point...


Painted up...


Top view...


Here's the plate holder I made with LEDS at the top...


Quick disconnect for the lights...

Dented the driver's side door...."fixed" it ;) then wheeled it. First time in sand! 6/22/2010

The dent was attempted to be popped out. Didn't work so well so I just covered the rocker with Herculiner. Herculiner gets 2 thumbs up from me...will be doing a write up on some tips i learned while doing it soon!

Mud

I don't typically play in mud a whole lot. Mud is inevitably encountered here in the south so for those interested in that here are some pics of how KM2s and my current set up hold up in muddy conditions:
