    Well I had a very busy weekend with getting the truck all painted and getting the new headlights and tail lights installed. Took about 8 hours total but thats because theres an hour flash time between coats and I needed to wait a few hours for the upper green panels to be dry enough so that I could get it taped up to paint the lower half. Overall I am very happy with how it turned out.

    I am not sure what you meant by that question but my over all plans are to lift it about 4", run some 35's, additional led off road lights and eventually I would like to put a winch bumper (with winch) and build a custom off road flatbed.

    That's exactly what I meant, looking forward to the rest of the build.

    This weekend was a really great one. My diamond eye 4" full exhaust came in as well as the new crossover pipe. I had been spraying the rusted bolts all week and with some patience I was able to get them all removed without breaking any. The exhaust sounds great now, can definitely hear the turbo spool up. And the butt dyno tells me the truck gets up and goes easier now. My brother in law also surprised me with some updated tow mirrors so I got those installed as well. And lastly, I picked up some Incubus 511 Off Road wheels with some used 315/70/17 tires. Next thing will be to get a lift on the truck so I can fit the wheels.

    I cried when you sanded the paint because it was a perfect combo, but now I'm happy you kept the GM Emerald Green, looks good! could we get a sound video for that 4" diamond eye?

    Thanks, if the paint would have been in decent condition then I would have left it. I love the combo as well. I'll try to get a video recorded and posted tomorrow. Hopefully the quality will come through good. I did keep the muffler in for now but I may getting the available muffler delete pipe because it is surprisingly quiet right now.
