Buildup of "Big Black"

Well i got it about a year ago..this is the day i got it

soon after that i decided that i wanted to change a few things..changed the turn signals and took all the extra plastic crap off

since im a firefighter i hooked up some blue lights and went back by giants stadium after some snow

well my younger brother is a photographer i have the advantage of him taking some cool *** shots of my truck so here is a few before the lift and tires





About 3 weeks ago me and my dad finally got around to putting the lift on..it took us about 30 or so hours to complete it mainly because all of the rear upper shock bolts broke off and we had to drill them all out..and can i say those things are stubborn!!
so here are some pics that my little brother took for me after





Since our floor at the firehouse is getting redone were storing our rigs in the factory right by the firehouse..so i took advantage of getting some cool shots



i was trying to not go mudding for a while to make sure all the bolts and what not are tight before i do any real wheeling but my buddy decides to get stuck in his 2WD pickup and called me to come pull him out so here are some pics afterwords


and as you can tell my brother took this one lol

They are both cool bumpers, but I would go with the rampage. Just my two cents. Keep up with your build, lookin awesome!
