As crazy as it seems a new year is almost upon us. Granted, most of us in the chapter either have demanding job, family or the never ending task that go along with home ownership.

Putting all that fun responsibility stuff aside......we need to think about the plans for our trucks this year......yes, its a priority #4 for most of us, but all that hard work needs to also allot us time to keep the machines running and maybe even looking better.

2014 was a slow and productive year for me:

- C-Notched, thanks to @onelow1ton for your helping hands and equipment
- all rear suspension sorted lowered more, thanks to @onelow1ton for your helping hands and equipment
- 09+ brake upgrade finally done, Thanks to @comdrop9073 for your helping hands
- rebuild of front steering and suspension as needed, Thanks to @comdrop9073 for your helping hands
- New tires
- new rear brakeline and other unsexy maintenance
********************************************************************************************

2015 plans.......we'll see how it goes

- RKSport flares with custom finishing(since I will not be using them with a body kit)

- Wrap the roof center section with some 3M vinyl; either black or CF pattern

PENDING -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'd get the CCSB, in laser blue with Z71 option.

The ZR2 looks nice but I'm not a big off roader

I'm not either, but the look and stance is what I want. I like to go wheeling when i can....this will be perfect for camping and mountain biking

Following your lead:

2014 was a VERY busy year for me: Despite the fact that I only really did two modifications, they were some of the most expensive to date.

- Brand new, custom sized and cut 22" Intro Wheels and Falken Tires.
- Chopped and Reupholstered front and rear seats in custom two tone pattern.

2015 plans.......we'll see how it goes

- Finish the interior - I have all of the material: The vinyl, new carpet, the sound deadener and more. I just need to save the money for the upholsterer.
- Von Dutch inspired pinstriping on the hood and tailgate. Saving money for the striper and waiting on warmer weather now
- Install new Infinity Kappa 60.9cs and amp! I've been sitting on these components for almost 2 years now. With the ragtop open and all 4 windows down its hard to hear my jams. That shouldn't be a problem after installing these.
- Paint the Babies room and custom painted dresser - Add bad-ass pinstriping to the furniture
- Throw the baddest Mini Truck meet Maryland has ever seen! (April 25th)

Red - hugely labor intensive
Orange - pretty easy with some work in the garage
Green - stupid easy

2014 for me was nice:
Got the canyon
wheels and tires
Clear lenses and hids
bucket conversion with console
Sub installed
ssk shifter and seat knobs
Capped my frame rails where they were dragged thru
Home made intake
Cree reverse bulbs
tinted windows
Might install my new little Larry's fourplay valves

So I big plans for '15 also
If I dont get my little larrys done by the end of the year I will do them
Fuel cell
Finish bed
Efan
tailgate shave
tune
Get another sub or two and have them fiberglassed in a nice inclosure that is show worthy
Re-Upholster the seats

Shouldn't be too difficult. The bed will take some work.
