Well I am finally getting to do the big update I teased about over a month ago. We have been working all week since I came back from my actual job and started days off Monday. Ill have to kind of back track from the beginning with the pictures.

So The first thing I did was have the Leer shell installed. It was a pretty simple install. This one had the keyless entry lock that wires to my factory keyless system so that took a little longer.

Next Project was to get the Magnaflow exhaust on. I went with the system that exits in front of the rear tire on the passenger side. I thought this was different and I don't really like the corner exit ones. Also I was afraid the rear Road Armor may interfere with it.

Then began the process of getting these stupid factory bumpers off. 3 hours and a youtube video later the front one was off. The rear bumper actually required lifting the bed up to get the factory brackets to come out with the bumper.

After that we started with the graphics

The shell really does make it look bigger. And it's pretty clean in person. Everyone of my friends that was giving me hell about getting one, loves it after it was done.

I like the shell :shrug:

really wish they had chosen a different color on the graphics
We wanted to do red because of the red flake in the paint. But Skyjacker's color is red. So we chose against that. The Yellow actually looks good in person. A lot better than I thought it was going to. Maybe when I get it outside in light I can make the pic look better.

Got the bumpers and winches installed yesterday. They fit beautifully and the paint work turned out great. This Road Armor doesn't stick out Newman as much as my one did on my 02. I love them. I put the Warn 9.5xp with the synthetic rope int the front and a Warn VR8000 in the rear. The one in the rear will come in so handy for pulling vehicles up on my 20' car hauler.

But sadly I have to go back to work tomorrow so I probably won't see the truck until I show up at SEMA. I really wanted to see it outside with the BOGGERS mounted but we were still waiting on the other wheels and they won't be here until Monday.

Well I had to come back to work for a week but they sent me a few pic of it finished before it was loaded on the truck. I love it. The Boggers look smaller than the M16's but then again I haven't seen it in person either. The Road Armor bumpers fit amazing. They also turned out beautiful after paint. The Magnaflow sounds great as well. Not too loud. More of a muscle care tone.

Intercos website states the tread width as only 10.9 on the boggers so they look a bit skinny which is why they look small if I had to guess. Truck looks awesome man can't wait for more pics

They sent me this pic of it when it got there. Tires don't look as small from this angle

They haven't done a full spring for this model. And more than likely they probably won't. The sales just aren't there. I bet when I worked there it was 20 to 1 sales of block kits vs spring kits.

They just look narrow. From the side they look good.
I wish they would have been more true to size 12.50's. Or even a 13.50. I just wanted the Boggers because it will be the most original tire there on a newer model truck. I mean you won't be able to sling a dead cat and not hit a truck with Nittos or Toyos etc. I just figured it would get more looks as a "you don't see that every day" type look.
