Here's some pics of my girl with current mods then the mods I'm planning on adding!

Current Mod List:
-S&B Air Intake
-H&S Black Maxx Tuner
-5.5" DPF Delete Straight Pipe
-Leonard's Better Built HD Contractors Tool Box
-Gooseneck Hitch
-2" Leveling Kit
-325 65 20 Nitto Terra Grapplers
-24" LED Light bar mounted Behind Grill

Future Mod List:
-LED Light Replacements
-HID Headlights
-Air Supply System w/ Nathan Airchime K3 Train Horns
-Hi Idle Mod
-Too many to list!

Completely forgot to include a pic of my latest mod, I installed a 24" LED Lightbar behind the grill last night!



If you look closely, it's behind the grill right below the second cross bar.

Awesome truck! Have you hand calculated your fuel mileage? My 08's computer tells me it's about 22 when in reality it's much lower.

I'm getting thin on my tires so I'm looking at picking up a new set. I'm also thinking about switching to an aftermarket rim as well so i can get the tires out of the fender wells just a lil bit. Here's my proposed set up:

Switching from a 2" Level to a 3" Leveling Kit with a 4" Block in the back. Then I'm thinking about a set of 20" BMF Novakanes in Chrome wrapped in 36" Toyo Open Country MTs. Add a Dual Steering Stablizer up front to compensate for the new rubber.

Next, I'm sick of small parking lots... I have had my front bumper backed into three times since Christmas. So to help stop this I want to install a Warn Replacement Front Bumper Painted to match the tan on my truck. THinking about a rear bumper as well, but haven't found one I like yet.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but a level kit on a real farm truck is when you hook up your trailer. And if you have a real farm truck you don't care about parking spaces because farm trucks don't park, they work.

Added: Edge Monitor with EGT, Fuel Pressure & Ambient Temperature Sensors, turbo timer & back up camera. High Idle Mod. Manual Fan Mod
