Saw the rendering on FB. Looking forward to hearing your review and seeing photos.

They still doing the rear setups in the future (flipping the shock mount and new leafs)? I hate how low the rear shocks hang...

Great looking truck. I sounds like you were able to make a great DD that functions well in all conditions.

Great taste on your mods. And great taste on off roading at Azusa Canyon.

Being that you are an Scal guy, make sure you check out Rohrer Flats and Hungry Valley which are both places I highly recommend if you have not tried them already.

Thanks for the kind words! I am currently in the process of making a bracket that will be able to mount to the bed using the GearOn attachments to hold a Pro Eagle Racing Jack and also a way to mount a CB Antenna now that the soft topper spoiled my current design. Will post once it is complete!

Very nice mods, and I love the soft topper. I think that's going to be my next mod for my truck.

Had a buddy wrap my roof in Avery Satin Black Vinyl. Matches the Z71 grill perfectly!

Any particular reason you switched from the BFG's to Falken tires?

The main reason was because it was going to be shown in the Falken tire booth and they gave me a deal I couldn't refuse. After switching I would not go back to the bfg. My truck vibrates much less when turning and rides much smoother.
