Thanks to RakkasanScout187 for giving me a hand with things.
Here's a few pics of the progress.....
The day I bought it (I found it in Phoenix AZ after searching for a suitable 4X4 7.3 ECSB with a manual 6 speed trans for over 4 months. I flew out there from Arkansas and drove it back)
20" XD Monsters W/295/60R20 Nitto Terra Grapps
Installing Zone Off Road mini spring pack leveling kit
Factory bumpers & nerfbars heading to power-coaters.
Returned (textured matte black)
Threw away all old plastic trim pieces and replaced with new.
New Cab Lights
New FX4 stickers
Painting Pocket Flares & Grill (textured matte black)
Pocket flares installed along with some fresh paint & body work
Drove a couple hours away to pickup this used camper shell
Intake & 2 new Odyssey batts
Got Camper PTM
As of last night....
Truck looks great! Did I read it right, $800 to paint the truck?
Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I777 using AutoGuide.Com Free App
The $800 was to fix a dent on the passenger bedside, some scratches on the driver's side door, straighten the frame (we discovered it was bent while updating/replacing front end components) and painting the matte black from the body line down.
That truck is pretty sweet man. looks way better than mine and if you want some good news i have spent WAY more than you and i feel like you have WAY more than me.
