I've seen this in the first and third generation forums, but not here. And I searched, I swear.
For those who have put a bunch of work into their trucks, let's see what they looked like before you fixed them up. Tell us about your mods and post a few pics. Here, I'll start.
The day I got it:
After getting it running and painted:
After installing Tuff Country lift and 33" tires:
Currently (after SAS):
Dana 44 front axle with Spartan locker, GM 9.5" 14-bolt rear axle with Yukon Dura-Grip limited-slip, 4.10 gears, Edelbrock headers with Flowmaster muffler, cold air intake, custom nerf bars, Corbeau seats, Tuffy center console, and probably a bunch of other stuff I've forgotten.
Let's see everybody's second generations!

I'd like to show some pics of my trucks progress since I got it, but I can't seem to get photo bucket to work properly. You guys got any tips? Going to my buddy's house tommorow to get started on the winch bumper, should be awesome when done. Think I'm going to linex it, thoughts??
If you can't find the needle, burn the haystack.
How it was before winter. Got some different tires and rims and painted them. Smoked Tail head and cab lights. Gutter mesh grill inserts. Also removed the sports badges.
Now I'm waiting for spring so I can put on some new decals that I got. I also picked up a set of 5 cragar soft 8's last month that I need to get painted up. I'm also hoping for some 31x10.5 tires and a 3" PA Body lift. I've also been thinking about painting the front and rear bumper the same color as the truck. How do you think that would look?
No pictures in my case. Hardly any cosmetic mods...more like battle scars, and lots of them.
Each mod is small on it's own, but as a package, yields a mostly stock looking sleeper motor that hopefully will be indestructable (Could dodge have put a more lame-duck cam in the 3.9? But if it keeps me from blowing stuff up......).
So far my best time is 11.10 1/8 mile on 30x8 AT's with the top half of this list (and stock convertor). Next time I hit the track will be with sections 1 and 2 complete. The goal is to hit 10.30 in the 1/8 mile with all but the last section. When i've done that, I'll drop from the 30" AT to the 24" slick and see what trouble I can make.
