Photo/build log of my truck. I'll narrate some pics, some I won't. If you want some details- don't be afraid to ask! Of course, because I'm more active up in Canada355, check out my build log on there, where you'll find a lot of spirited chat and opinion on my truck, and some of the blunders along the way. Huzzah!

Yup if you ever plan a trip up here around this time of year, make sure to swap some winter tires on as soon as you cross the border. Wouldn't be a bad idea to also bring some chains, a parka, snow shoes, and bear spray too. Although getting a reservation at any decent igloo is tough this time of year, so book far in advance.

You sound a lot more sure of what you want to do on here. You don't even know what you want to do on your other build thread

I've had a recent identity crisis with the truck, and now I'm on track. I know where I'm going now, it's just that my aspirations are bigger than my pocketbook. Up in C355, I tend to discuss more stuff and here, I'm just kinda posting pics, because who doesn't like pictures?

I really like the progress so Far. everything you did with the black paint looks good.

After looking all pictures you posted I guess you drive on dirt roads frequently, you put some money on new rubbers and went for GT grabbers, so my vote is for a lift kit some off road wheels and a set of 31" BFG´s AT at least.

nice ride!

Not, really no. A lot of gravel driveways (including my own) in the area though. That, and this summer, there's a construction project down every second road.
Went for the Grabbers, simply because I had GT tires on my Sunfire, and they held up good. Specifically picked the Grabber AT2s, because they are a true all-season tire. (certified as a snow tire).

And because I babbled on, without further adieu...









@The ghost boy: still debating, though unlikely. I'd rather get myself a good enclosed trailer.

And the wheels I'm liking more and more (and sorry, they're 15s), will make the tires stick out about an inch, so tracking down a set of Z71 flares might be in order.

Haven't done a whole lot in the past while, but I do have pictures...

Attacked the slide graphics...once I started I couldn't stop!






Needs to be cleaned, but here's the final product :D
