Bush bar!



The mounts are going to get redone within the next few weeks hopefully if I get time so they don't look so Bleh. Gonna have a welder build me some proper brackets once I figure out how its going to get done.

New (used) front tires. Idiot that owned it before me had 215s on the front and 235s in the rear.

Brought it into work today to put in a new muffler. I fired it up after I removed the old one and ended up just straight piping it. It's definitely louder, but nowhere near as loud as I expected. Unless you crawled under and looked you'd never know there was no muffler though. Luckily I work at a car dealership so I don't have to worry on my next inspection.

Also put in new Dodge floormats and painted the interior bezels white. Just sprayed em with Krylon fusion. It's kinda stupid how much bright and better the interior looks now.

Took it up to the truck wash and cleaned the hell out of it inside and out too. Minus the dents, scratches, and rust it looks pretty damn good now lol

Today I took the task of Painting my hood with Rockguard*Cause I think it looks awesome, and I'm tired of the damn trees scratching my hood.*

Along with that I'm repainting the majority of my tailgate so it won't rust out in the coming winter. It was a budget repaint but I did sand, prime, and paint.
The truck will be an entirely different colour one day.

Heres some pics!
The Hood





Tailgate




The tailgate is in its final stages of drying so I'll get a better picture of it tomorrow when its remounted.

On a side note I'm going to get a canopy tomorrow *That needs some repairs lol MORE PROJECT!!!!*

I actually installed my March performance underdrive pulley kit ( alt. & crankshaft pulley), put my belt back on, then realized I had to get a serpentine belt thats an inch shorter than stock. So I had to uninstall them haha, it sucked but it's cool.

Installed my Add A Leafs about a week ago and just installed a bunch of new front components.
All ball joints, all tie rod ends, both front axles, both front shocks, and reindexed torsion keys. I do have some photos that I might put up when I get some time.
