    Just checking out all the forums, so much good info, help and GREAT ideas.

    2010 CM 4x4
    Done:
    6" Procomp lift
    Front sway removed
    Kings with remotes in front.
    Coach 3" shackles with OME Dakar leafs and Kings in back
    Magnum ICI front and rear bumpers (not shown...gotta get off my tush and take new pics)
    Fuel Anza with Anthracite 20x10 with Terra Grappler G2 35x12.5
    Rigid fogs and spots in front.
    Diamondback cover
    De-badge

    Parts on hand, but not installed (ask me for anything but time...)
    Poplock for tailgate
    20" light bar for front
    2x10" bars for rear (not sure how I'm going to do this...flush mount in the bumper? Flush mount IN the tailgate? Bracket mount in line with back of diamondback cover? Decisions, decisions)
    Bushwacker pocket flares

    In planning/decision/crap I need more money cycle:
    Plasti-dip grill or paint?
    Hood bulge LED?
    Under-cover latches for Diamondback (only ask if you want a rant...)
    Replace wheels (drop to 18" and get a better designed wheel - ask me why if you want ANOTHER rant! :))
    Dual battery/house battery
    Inverter
    On Board Air
    Front of bed organization for batt, extra fuel, tools, etc while still being reachable...truck has a bit of a high waistline and I ain't exactly tall... :p

    Completely undecided:
    37's? (probably not)
    Drop everything, sell all the parts, scrimp, save and go LT in about 2 years...sigh.
    Winch?
    Wench...yes...a Wench would be good...

    Thanks for the welcome all!
    Sean-
    First: Nice truck!

    Good ideas on the light bars overall. I think I'm going to mock them up and take a look.
    Grill and surround - gotta get time for photoshop - silver truck and black bumpers along with black flares and black boards (sliders at some point), I'm THINKING blacking out the front, but color match is...not a bad idea:)

    Re-gearing and LSD are on the *gotta do it if/when things start breaking with age* list even with 35's, but not before...hence the hesitation on 37's. I mean, that's $1500 in parts and beyond my ability to do so 4+ hours of labor? ouch..

    I've used a Hi-Lift as a come-along twice in 4 years. Serious PITA and a winch would have been good...but so much $$ for a good winch to use twice over that amount of time, plus the damn weight...maybe...maybe..

    Now...Anyone got a line on the Wench? ;)
