Granted this vehicle is pretty much done, but I thought I would put it all in one place. There are still a few mods I plan for this truck. Most of them are centered on making it a better base camp vehicle.

How it sits today

I thought it was already done?

I've got more I want to do to it. Probably 7 or 8 mods left... maybe a few more. Just because its not a dedicated trail rig doesn't mean its not capable or ready at the drop of a hat to do so. Future mods will be aimed at camping, performance, some expo mods and a few interior mods. But for the most part, yes its done.

Are you gonna make a page for both rigs Sean or just clyde since he is now the offroad rig?
I'll do both. My other build thread on TW is so long and all the mods are scattered through it all.. I'll try to consolidate it in this one.

I wouldn't call it a mall crawler, maybe retired trail rig or dedicated tow/camping/expo/backup trail rig. But mall crawler is not even close.

Just need to be more careful where you park it at. LOL

I've ripped all the flares off at one point or another. They are $$$$.

Yeah I'm thinking about trashing the factory ones and getting those bushwhacker pocket flares instead

They are a LOT cheaper. IIRC the factory ones are about $250 each! Then they wanted another $250 to paint and install! Hell the little clips are about $4 - $6 each! At least with the BSP the bushwackers will match pretty close.

Really? at 200 a pop I should pull mine and sell them.

I'm not a fan of the fake screw holes on them. If they were functional I would like them more. I suppose a handful of sheetmetal screws could remedy that.
