    Hey TUNDRA’s! Here’s my build thread:
    My goal for the truck is to build a good solid truck for the trails for my family and I. The trails in my area are mountainous, so lots of rivers, rock and sand. There are decent sized sand dunes 20 minutes from my house. I can find mud if I please but not on my list of fun things haha. Also get a long old Alberta winter so snow wheeling is up there also.

    Starting point: my Dad gave me his old 2008 DC limited. Gave it to me with 455000 km’s. He had done:

    ARB bumper with led fogs
    K&N filter
    Magnaflow single catback
    Some wheels and tires
    Spray in box liner
    Hard box cover
    Helper air bags
    Pocket fender flares

    Current mods I’ve done:

    Removed box cover for more room.
    Removed fender flares as they were busted and rusted underneath.
    Removed running boards as I will build sliders.
    Wheels and 35/12.5r18s
    Old Man Emu coilovers and Dakar leafs with Daystar bag cradles.
    Sway bar delete
    Smoked taillights
    Debadged
    Carbon fibre interior wrap
    Tinted side glass and eyebrow
    Chrome delete
    Smoked LED Tow mirrors
    Bed net
    Off-road whipped
    Fire Extinguisher
    Ditch lights
    Reverse led lights

    Mods to come roughly in this order:

    Rear diff breather mod
    Raptor style grill lights
    Rear seat fold down mod
    Contemplating cat deletes (anyone with expeierence on this?)
    10” light bar bumper mounted in winch opening(until winch comes)
    Rear bumper delete. I’ll build a high clearance tube slider bumper with intigrated hitch
    Box line the entire truck at some point
    I have rear diff LSD and just need to install
    Winch at some point
    I’ll build steel skid plates at some point
    Stereo upgrade at some point. I have all my wiring, component amp, sub amp and one 12” sub. I’ll be building a custom box eventually. Along with some much needed sound deadening

    Currently:

    Thanks. I like the bumper too. Looked a little oversized before the lift. It suits it much better now that the bumper is high enough to cut a deer in half haha.

    Well half way finished the rear. Same as the front, the drivers side was worse shape than the passenger side. Shock was completely useless on the drivers side rear. My Dakar leafs have the standard bushings installed on them. Had to bring them to a shop today for them to press the bushing out. Then I can install the greasable OME bushings. I got the brake line extensions installed on the axle. So tonight it will just be hang the leafs, install the shocks and Daystar bag cradles. Wheel alignment is booked for tomorrow. Getting pretty excited to see how it rides.

    Just picked the truck up from the wheel alignment. The suspension feels proper. It feels so planted. Can’t wait to get out on some trails and feel the difference. Needs bigger tires now badly haha

    Oh I also scored a used under seat storage box for $50 today:yes: which after looking to install in my truck won’t work:( It will have to wait until I upgrade my JBL stereo and move the factory sub box... in due time. At least I got a good deal on the storage unit.

    Did some grip tape wraps on the door sills today. Sprayed some primer over the paint rubbed off on the edges first.

    Started wrapping the interior. Far from perfect but I keep learning as I go. I will be spraying the grey under the steering wheel and glove box with matte black as well.

    Blacked out handles and mirrors. Painted the hooks red. Gotta get the skid plate back on now. Disregard the rust please. I’ll be undercoating the truck again in time.
