My 2009 build thread.

Figure I would go ahead and start this now. Havent gotten to much done yet but it has been started.

Before I started adding anything to my 2009.



Put on a lightbar from N-Fab.

Heres the fog lights Im using

Remounting the Rigid Industries LED lights.

The hole behind the front bumper.


Filling in the hole with a hidden winch mount and 9500lb winch from Rough COuntry.




Putting in the Sirius plug and play kit I had.



The switch setup for the fog lights. USes a wireless remote control.



Still alot more things to add. Next on the list is a lift kit,wheels, and tires.

My brother went with the same light bar and 2 sets of rigid lights. Spot beams for the center and floods for the outside.

Lookin good. Keep the mods coming

I'm wanting to get the RC winch and hidden winch mount like you have. Have you had the opportunity to use the winch so far? How do you like it?

That's a very good way to plug the "black hole".
How about that remote for the lights, was that an item from Rigid as well?

X2 here
I was just thinking the same thing.
Winches are a popular item around here, but I like the way you managed to tuck yours away nice and neat. Everybody here wags 'em around on the outside.

Great start to what looks like will be a very cool thread. You've got some good ideas going.

That wireless set up is cool Shaun, I didn't know they made anything like that. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your mods!
