    Small update. Finally got around to ordering myself the correct headlights so I could put them on in conjunction with the Sequoia clear corners I got about 7 months ago. Got that done and it really does make it look like a new truck, but I already knew this from my old truck. I cannot stand headlights that are yellow and glazed!!! They definitely help at night time too which is always a plus. I just used all the bulbs that came with the lights, but might upgrade to something a little better in the future. Any ideas or suggestions for that besides HID's?

    New vs. Old



    And After

    Nope, but I'd be lying if I said I haven't even thought about it! haha

    Been a couple of months since I have updated. Nothing special has happened. The paint on the tool box is peeling again so I have just about given up on that. I did pick up some wheels tonight. Eagle Alloy 100 series 16x8 in black and they only cost me $150. I think I am going to get them re-powdercoated though as there are some chips and scratches. Now to decide on what kind of and what size tire I will go with.......

    I think the bug is back :devil:

    Started messing around with a piece of 1/8" scrap metal I had and figured I could make a good front diff/oil pan skid out of it.

    Plus I wanted to try out my new dimple die, though I wish I had a bigger one to use on this.

    Still need to get some small tube and bolts to finish it up and will probable add some bracing to the top of the skid to stiffen it up some. Remember, no rocks in Florida, but still want to protect it if I come down on something.






    Planning on building a traction bar like my old setup but need a smaller muffler so I can fit everything correctly. So I will be searching for a small and very quiet muffler.... any suggestions on that?

    haha long time no see guys. Honestly forgot this place existed, but it came up on a google search I made. How's it been?

    I still have this truck, but about to sell/trade in on either a 2nd gen 5.7 Tundra or a GM product with a 6.0. Need something more substantial to pull my trailer and trail truck
