Project Alex

New owner here. I've had my 2017 short bed, 4x4 for almost a month now but I've got a list of things to be done. But so far I've only done minor things.

Before delivery, I had the dealer remove the air dam (it cost them $250 since the bumper had to come off). And I've put some Westin step boards on.

It'll be a long process but I look forward to the end result.

Thank you! I really like the flow of them the best from what I've seen. It was these of some off road bar. But the style won out on this.

A local audio/electric/custom build shop near me (Soundwave Customs for those in the 757) had a huge blowout sale. Discovered I couldn't get any led bars they had on hand to fit the truck. A sub would fit either (might have to get one from the dealer?). So I ended up getting replacement speakers. Will update when these go in, and also will put to the audio thread.
