    Hey guys new here!! Here comes my slow/long build thread.

    Right now current upgrades are the 33 1/2 tires, and aftermarket radio.

    The truck is a huge beast and I love it already, very powerful and just all around amazing truck I have 0 complaints.

    My list of upgrades are to be programmer, exhaust, CAI, stereo system, plasti dip badges (dark green for the hulk theme), plasti dip rims (black), smoke tail lights/3rd brake light lense properly, also do a glossy black for tow mirrors, and door handles, maybe grill too. Would like to put led lights all around inside and out. That's all I can think of now I'm sure more will come about later. Heres pics of how the truck looks.

    Day I bought the truck.

    Hey nice 5th wheel. Are you towing that with your Tundra? If you are what's the weight on it?

    Checked out @ODSteve build and yeah I saw a few things I'm going to use.....going to black out my grille, and make my logo dark green, also going all green interior lights....

    I want some feedback on this going to talk to a vinyl guy about making stickers to go under my trd thinking either putting The Hulk or Hulk Smash what you guys think?

    Been checking out some builds getting some ideas on things to do as well.

    Well as most of y'all have probably seen The Hulk's starter decided to go bye bye on me well good news is, is that he's going to the shop to be repaired tonight so he'll be good to go tomorrow. So for now most all upgrades will be on hault for sure being as I'm having to drop almost 700 to get him back on the road.

    Finally getting to enjoy The Hulk had an awesome little mini vaca on our way home from Chicago.

    Got me a bullydog tuner so far impressed will update more about to go to Wyoming so be able to tell y'all how I like it more. What did throw me off is the size of it, kinda small looks like an iPod classic.

    Very simple to use didn't take long at all to get a tune installed etc. Also got my TX plates so happy about that too.

    Hey guys forgot I had the build/update page enjoying the BD so much I definitely agree money well spent for sure.

    Well found out leveling kits can kick your ass for sure. Long story short ruined my ball joints and ended up having to get new lower control arms. So the truck went to being big and now it's completely stock.

    Working on getting my rear cats deleted and just doing simple things. Next big project/expense will be on some new shocks for the truck cause everything on the truck is completely stock never been changed so it needs some tlc for sure and some routine maintenance done no doubt. Just going to do a few things at a time when the money is there.

    I will have to take pictures of the truck since I have changed up his look quite a bit but if you run stock exhaust and want a little more rumble out of the truck I suggest cut the tail pipe completely off or just cut the resonator off that they put on for the tail pipe.

    Is it difficult to take off the front and rear bumpers, thinking of taking them off whenever I go to plasti dip them?

    So here's my cheap little diy list I've composed up the past few days. Thinking plasti dip my chrome bumpers green or black, chrome piece around grill green, I want to find interior lights to make it green, not sure if it's legal but was going to plasti dip the tail light reverse light green so when I back up it's green. If I could find a cheaper deal on the door handles and such for our trucks go green with it too. Any other suggestions looking for some cheaper diys to do myself.

    Sweet!!!

    My plan is on some of the things if I like it green, will end up taking off the green and actually painting it so it's permanent, cause I'm not planning on getting rid of the truck for a good while.
