Well here it is finally! I bought this little diamond in the rough back in November '12 for $3200 I think. No body rust or frame rust at all! Had 235k miles on the odometer. They PO told me it ran, it drove, but it just didn't stop. Come to find out the brakes were shot on all four corners, the fronts were froze and the rear shoes were falling apart..

Its been fun so far. I just picked up an ax15 off eBay for $181 shipped. It needs to be rebuilt so the auto to manual swap will be the next step for me. Also looking into the stroker kits..

looks good. im not a fan of the LED bars but still a nice truck
Thank you, I love the lights, personally I think they look better than round lights.

Herr is the difference from my regular head lights and the bar. I still don't have the small lights wired up.

No I haven't installed a sye yet. I ordered all these things while I was deployed and was wanting to get the sye and drive shaft from tom woods but couldn't be there to measure for the driveshaft so I just dropped the case. I'm am in the process of gathering all the parts to swap to an ax15. Just received the trans today! As for the axles they are stock.

Haha thanks! I believe they do think alike.

I got the mount from this guy. I'm not sure the cost of it though. Personally I love the mount, one of them were not bent correctly or to much but was able to make it work.

I'm thoroughly pleased and surprised by the lights. I'm anxious to get the two bottom lights wired up!
