    the first mod i did was crank the torsion bars but no before pics. they were all erased when my phone decided to jump off my truck

    next mod was painting as much grey accents as one can of satin Krylon would cover

    nice brushguard i got for christmas. thank you Mom

    aaaand then the tires were causing a major malfunction in the near perfect 14.5 miles per gallon i was getting so they came off. we were them ridin hawaiian with 3 inches of lift and 31s.

    [​IMG]

    and so it happened. tires got sold and rims found a new home holding down a pallet in the barn, awaiting thier day to sometime shine upon the hubs of the black beast itsself. but the center caps got lucky. they were so stuck to the hubs that i got tired of prying and just left them on.

    but you cant leave a good thing alone. so off the lift came

    i couldnt find a jack. so the tractor worked fine

    [​IMG]

    and done. the brushguard is still on, but the camera died
    [​IMG]

    so thats it. ive had it 3 years, 65000 miles under my belt and weve essentially gone nowhere...so far!

    next weekend if im free, ptm'ing the bumpers, toolbox, fender flares, step/flare things, and the bedrails. if they look good ill keep em, if not there goin on CL. also the steps are comin off , i was just too tired to do it today. when extra money comes in lookin foward to getting dual slash cut exhaust and a cheap set of 305/70/16 tires to get my black steels back in action :peace:
