I'm still fairly new here and since joining I've got a lot of inspiration from other people's build threads. So I thought I would start a thread of my own. It's got a long ways to go to get it where I want it. My long term goal is to eventually SAS it and create a expeditionary/trail rig. This is something that will probably happen slowly overtime as money becomes available. But I thought I'd share what I've got so far.

I bought the truck in Dec. 2013. And it was completely stock.







Since then I have installed a 3" body lift, cranked the torsion bars, installed a AAL and 2" shackles, bought new wheels, 33" m/t tires, Volant CAI, Supermod PTB, and SuperSparkz, plus probably some other things I can't think of at the moment.

Re: Merica!'s Build/Wheeling Thread *Uwharrie Pics*

So yesterday I finished installing my B&M trans. cooler, installed a Corvette Servo, and replaced the trans. filter and upgraded to DEXRON-VI fluid. The trans feel much better now. Probably has something to do with the fact that the magnet isn't completely covered in gunk. LOL. Who knows when that fluid was last changed.

Re: Merica!'s Build/Wheeling Thread

So haven't done anything to the truck in awhile but today was kinda interesting. I replaced my trans cooler. Hopefully this fixes the trans fluid that's been leaking. If not probably gonna need a radiator. Also did an oil change while I was at it.

I took a look at my blower motor resistor. Looks like I need the resistor and the harness connector. a couple of the wires are burned. Also when I was backing the truck outta the garage the brake light came on. I topped off the fluid and went to try to tighten the e-brake cable and the adjuster snapped. FML.

On a good note, I bought some dupli color bed armour for my grill. Now I just got to track down some Sunburst Orange paint for my emblem.:D

Re: Merica!

Nice tuck, radical change from first pic to the last ones.

Why you got the 4WD actuator broken? hit a rock or something?
