The Stereo just quit working one morning so I replaced it with a Pioneer Deck and 600 watt Amp



Thats all I did while I was paying it off, a month after I did on 2.15.09 a tree fell on my truck in the middle of the night, pic looks alot worse than it was new tailgate and a drivers side mirror and she was good to go



I lost my stock bed liner after the tree so I had line-x spray on put in, my tailights were also cracked from the tree, swaped em for these oem red clear



Headlights Got really beaten up from going to the Snow so my Brother MaK92-4RnR & I put some Blacked Out Headlights and Corners on







Didnt have any floor mats so i got some weathertech ones



Got My lift Kit put on this weekend with the help of my brother MaK92-4RnR & dark_fairytales, Toytec 3" 650lb coilovers & All Pro Rear Leaf Kit with 5125 Shocks



Old Shocks & Springs

My Brother Puting Passenger Coilover in



Dark working on Drivers Side Shock

After pics



Still need to cut the u bolts down


Next Mod Wheels And Tires

33s are big man they most likely will hit on cab side mine did i just cut out the section and welded and new piece in i tried just smashing it in with hammer but it hits hard when u up travel suspension best way to ck is remove coil over and cycle suspension with wheel turned left than right than you will see ware/if it hits
but looks good man i bet it makes a world of diffrence

4.10's are too much for a street car... Perfect for a track only mustang.
