Hey i'm new to the forum and I thought I would start a build thread for my truck.
Mods so far: cold air intake, 31s, 2.5 inch t-bar crank, blue interior lights, and 17x9 ultra wheels
Future mods: custom built front and rear bumpers, magnaflow exhaust, and window tint.

Decided to change up the design a little bit. I'm building the bumper out of 3/16th steel, has anyone built a similar bumper? If so, how much did it end up weighing?

Here are some pics of my engine bay. I made the cold air intake using a how too off this site.

Looking good so far! I just did my own cai last week, very similar to you. I like how you painted the hoses red though. Are they rubber hoses? How hard were they to paint?

Rjpoog1989 i used duplicolor metalcast on all the parts you see painted. The paint is holding up well on everything except for the rubber hose coming off the back, its starting to flake off.

That's what I used to paint mine, but I was worried about it flaking on the rubber so I didn't paint that. It looks cool though.

Haven't posted any pics since my most recent mods. I got myself some 32" mtrs and cranked the t bars some more, im planning on making shackles for the rear and diff drop spacers tommorow. I will also be starting on a set of rock sliders soon so if any you have any plans for rock sliders I would love to see them.
