    Just making a build thread for my truck..
    I bought my truck in march of 2015
    IMG_0699.jpg
    Whenever I bought it the truck already had a leveling kit with 18's and 33's...
    it sat just like that for a while until i got bored and decided the debadge my truck and took off the running boards to see if i liked the look of it and it turns out that i like it.. after about three months i bought the rigid industries led fog light brackets and some swamp donkey LED pods

    IMG_0761.jpg
    IMG_0793.jpg
    Here is the before and after of the pod install.. it was really easy to do.. I didn't use the factory harness so i have a switch on the left side of my steering wheel
    IMG_0792.jpg
    Here is how my truck sits now..
    leveling kit with 18 inch American racing rims and 33 inch mud tires
    debadged
    removed side steps
    LED fog pods

    Future Mods
    Get rid of leveling kit and get a better lift kit
    Spray-in bedliner
    LED headlights
    Black 20 inch rims on Toyo at II's
    I would love a supercharger
    Gibson Exhaust
    Full chrome delete
    I'm sure Iwill think of something else to do to it

    Got bored today and i decided to tint my tails.. I didn't take any before pictures of them on my truck but i think we all know what our tucks look like with stock tail lights..
    IMG_0833.jpg Here is my work bench... it was almost the perfect height.. at this point i had one light sanded..
    IMG_0834.jpg
    The light on the right is almost done and I messed up the light the left and the third brake light so i had to take the night shade off and start all over again on those two
    IMG_0835.jpg
    This is the finished product without a coat of wax on them
    IMG_0837.jpg
    And here is how the lights look reinstalled on my truck and you can also kinda see the third break light in this picture.. I think I ended doing 3-4 coats on the out part of the light and 1-2 coats on the middle
    IMG_0836.jpg
    I also plasti-dipped both of the iForce badged as those are the only badges that are still left on my truck... I gotta give a big shoutout to @csuviper for posting the helpful DIY on how to tint the tail lights

    I've done a few things to the truck since my last update
    image.jpg
    Just change out my halogen headlights to some Amazon led headlights... They will get tested this weekend
    image.jpg
    I also added an ultra gauge and so far I like it... I have only had it for a little over a week
    image.jpg
    I also added some auxiliary back up lights to make it a little easier backing up at night.. I also traded my chrome rims for some black rims

    I got my steps installed on my truck last night and I really like how the look... I just still need to adjust them so they are as close to the body as possible.... I also added the rocklights a couple months ago... they aren't too bad for a 65 dollar set off Amazon

    So are these wheels and tires with the leveling kit or have you done the BDS lift yet? I'm looking for new wheels and tires myself and already have the leveling kit. Thanks
