It’s tan lariat leather interior, currently needs a vacuuming
It's a show condition truck according to your profile? Do you have any pics or anything on the web? I'd like to see everything that's been done.

Also, can that trim stuff be removed? I see a clear on Amazon but that black would look nice on my truck and would cover up the chips from the BFG tires. I didn't realize they were tossing rocks until it was too late.

No other pics on the web, and yes it can be removed, I’ll clean it up and get some pics of the engine bay and inside the cab.

Has it been mechanically restored? It's obviously been repainted. I'm just curious about how much work people put into their trucks. I had a thread on here awhile ago for people to post and show off their rigs but only a few were interested.

My truck isn't half as nice as yours. Interior is nice but not leather. I'm upside down and will never get my investment back. I'm probably in for about 15 and doubt I could get 10 out of it. Maybe 8 or 9.

I’ve put a new trans in it, new drop in turbo from diesel site with mechanical Wastegate, blank pedestal, new gears front and rear, new u-joints, new wheel hubs, front axel seals, shocks all the way around, afe stage 2 intake, new cac boots, water pump, power steering pump, steering box, high torque starter, 2010 take off bed, new headlights, 3rd brake light, window motors, track bar, ebp sensor and tube, Ipr, icp, overhead display

Probably missing some things

I plan on having this truck forever, so I want it as nice as possible as long as money is able to be spent.

Truck towed the side by side on the 4rth and had one of the most technical/challenging rides with some friends. It doesn't help ours is a 4 seater with 4 people but wow. Some of the most hidden views I've ever been on. I'll have to get the wife for pics as I was trying to keep from roll overs and swipes at the window from the brush lol. Also I may be hooking up the truck to a gooseneck for a project i've been slowly working on for about 6 months now. Pics in the near future.

Hope everyone had a good 4th of July.

I lifted the cover, turned on the park lights, and unplugged the battery charger. Left the park lights on for 8 hours, then started the truck. It hasn't been started for 10 weeks. Cranked a bit longer than normal, but fired like it always does.

I have a trip coming up, and the batteries are 5 years old. It is always on a charger, so if the batteries are weak, I wouldn't know it by the way it starts right off the charger. I don't want to have trouble in the dry camp site. Leaving the park lights on for 8 hours is about a 40 Ahr draw-down. Not a lot, but enough to remove the surface charge, and present a good indication of health if it will start after a 10 week hibernation.

I'm good to go.

I NEVER KNEW THAT THESE TRUCKS WOULD START AFTER LEAVING THE PARKING LIGHTS ON FOR SO LONG.....

IS THIS NORMAL?....OR DO YOU JUST HAVE REALLY GOOD BATTERIES?....

THANKS.....

At 5 years old, I don't think they're "really good" any longer, but they are good enough for my next trip in two weeks which will be the last one this year.

When I'm on a trip, I routinely leave my park lights on if I'm sleeping in the truck. It's always an 8 hour nap, and the truck always starts in the morning. I leave the stereo on all night too, although I didn't today. If it starts after 8 hours, the batteries are still good enough for the way I use my truck.

Dang @DaveP's Ghost i totally forgot to check mine sorry. Been wrapped up in a larger than normal project. Took about an 8hr round trip for this trailer today but was well worth it.

thankfully it won’t be for hauling vehicles, more just mobile ramps etc. but more to come soon!

Towed it little over 500 mile empty but for the price it was WAY worth compared to new. I can fit in this order perfectly fine: 4seat utv on front, jeep in middle, and 2 seat side by side on rear. It would fit two vehicles comfortably, maybe three if super small cars. But this is more of a mobile ramp system for a project and wont be towing with cars on it thankfully.
