Hey guys, pretty new around here figured it was time for a build thread to keep track of my progress, get some insight/help and opinions. Just the usual.

Truck has a number of mods done to it thus far, and I still have a long way to go before it's where I want it. I guess I should also mention that this build is goin to take some time, I don't have the money to whip everything together in a few weeks as much as I'd love to.



So far -

Line-X
Tonneau Cover
Weather Tech Floormats Front & Rear
Amp Research Power Steps
Tinted Windows
Fully Debadged
Double Din Deck
Navigation
Back Up Cam
SLT Console
Levelling Kit
K&N Intake With Airbox
4" Gibson Exhaust
6" Tip
Grillcraft MX Series


As far as plans go keeping things as clean as possible, nothing tSoo crazy.

FTS 7"
Bilsteins 7 - 9"
AAL to Level - 2"(???)
35" Toyo or Trail Grapps
20x12 962's Black
Cleared heads
Tows
Powder Bumpers/Grille shell
Upgrade all lighting
Possible Regear

Stocked up on some Mothers products and decided to tackle the wheels today, previous owner had neglected them to say the least so I got some sandpaper, polish and a powerball then went to work. I think I was working on my wheels for like 4 hours today, I'm sure my neighbours think I'm fucked.

This was the worst wheel before starting, as you can see heavy pitting and embedded rusty metal from what I assume was a hung up caliper..



After sanding, couldn't believe I got everything out.



And finally all polished up, the same wheel as the pitting, pretty happy with the result, though I don't know why I can't get more shine out of them.. I see tons of guys getting a literal mirror finish on their wheels and I jus seem to be missing the mark a bit? Any tips on that would be awesome

Well just got off the phone with Mark from FTS and the lift and tires are ordered.

7" FTS Lift
7 - 9" Bilstein Struts
Rear Bilstein Shocks
20x12 Motometal 962 in black
35x12.50 Atturo Trail Blade M/T Tires

Mark figured the lift should be here by the end of the week so hopefully the wheels come jus as quick and I can get this thing in the air

Truck turned out awesome, how do you like those tires so far ? I've seen them listed on kijiji, just never heard of them before.

Having a reaaally hard time deciding if I want to paint the housings black or just clear.. Tows are definite.

Love the look of the tires, can't say too much on wear yet of course but road noise is pretty normal and can't beat the price.

Handles would be nice.. But I think they tie everything together having mirrors, and bumper plastics the same colour.

Been a long time since the last update, finally got some tows, painted heads which I know some people will be against, but I'm really happy with them & did a full LED conversion (no pictures right now)
