I got the truck for my 16th birthday, My brother bought it brand new and drove it till 2005 when he sold it to the construction company my dad and him worked at. My dad used it as his work truck till 2010 and then bought it from the company for 3k. Then it was given to me shortly after. When i got the truck it was bone stock besides having an A.R.E topper. Sadly i have to pictures of the truck stock to compare it to but i have tons of pictures now. Let me know what you think of my mods as i do them as well as the ones i have already done.

Update: 7/2/2014

Modification: "Angry eyes"

I first mocked up the lights with black tape to make sure i liked the look, i made sure both sides where the same by doing a little measuring to see how far i dropped the tape down. Once i realized i liked the look i reversed the tape and used black acrylic enamal. I decided paint was better as i have used headlight black out paint and it always has a misted purple look. i wanted it to be pitch black. I will be adding a few more coats of black and then a clear coat and i will add finished pictures once im done. I tested out my lights and it seems that it hasnt affected them at all.

Here is the mock up

Looks good, buddy! I've got a couple questions:

1: What did you use for your rock chip guard? Rattle can or roll on?

2: How did you mount the CB? I'd be afraid of putting screws up through the roof, lol.

Thanks!

Dupli color makes a roll on kit. Comes with 1 gallon, a brush, roller, and tray. It needs a good 15 minutes of stirring when you first open the gallon otherwise it is super thin. And the dupli color brand i have heard is thinner than others. I needed about 8 coats just so i couldnt see the primer through it any more. And i did my cb a long time ago and if i remember right there is 2 layers on the super duty roof and we used really short self tappers and a homade bracket bent to form around the cb. Other options are to mount it on the dash like a trailer brake but i like it on the ceiling for looks haha.

A little update here, tailgate fell off this weekend. Not on the road but in the trail. I didnt even notice and then backed over it hahahaha. Michigan really did a number on it and it was 70% rust anyways. Well i am looking at some of those nets until i can get a new box and tailgate.

Update 9/4/2014

Stalling problem

Truck is now stalling when downshifting and engine braking and the brakes are being applied at the same time. Have no idea whats going on now but it seems to be miss fireing alot at idle not sure if thats connected or not. It threw a code when it first happened so as soon as i get that read i will start from there, and post pictures and details of getting it fixed as well

I know not to many people are following this but i know someday someone will have a truck of the same year and be able to use this as a guide to fixing and modding theirs. But to those who have been reading along thanks alot, cody
