Before and after

I've seen this in the first and third generation forums, but not here. And I searched, I swear. :D

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:

Mods:
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!

Great looking trucks, both of you. :icon_imnotworthy:

Sometimes, it's hard to remember how much you've done until you look at the old pictures.

That's why I'm keeping all my mods hidden by factory metal >:)

Thanks Tom, but I think the amount of work you've put it definitely means that your Dakota takes the cake.

Thanks, but I didn't mean it to be a competition. I just like seeing everybody else's ideas and individuality.

I don't think I could ever own/drive a vehicle that was exactly like 5 million other people's and judging from the trucks I've seen here, a bunch of Dakota owners feel the same way I do. :icon_toast:


P.S. The stock tires on your truck are hilarious. It looks like they were stolen off a skateboard or something.

Oh haha I know, I'm just saying I can appreciate the work you've done to yours.

And yeah, those are the PO's grandpa tires!!

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??

That's my plan for mine too, if I ever get around to building it.
