A small stack of parts....

RC steering stabilizer
Genright LED tail lights
Warrior LED reverse lights
Skid Row radiator skid
Genright steering skid
RC tie rod
tie rod ends
Rugged Ridge license plate mount
LED third brake light (for rear project)




Not pictured are the DDM Tuning HID kit, Hella E-Code lenses, Genright grille hoop and stinger, rest of custom intake setup, hood pins, and new front fenders.


Yanked that HUGE Genright sticker off. Do they really expect people to keep that on???




A slightly better picture of my new truck. 2012 F-250 Lariat FX4.

The electronics nerd came out in me yesterday. I bought some parts to put a cool system together. It will be somewhat for show, but will serve some actual purpose.

I will post the specifics when the parts come in.

I am loving it so far. I'm having trouble keeping my rear out of the driver's seat, and my foot out of the accellerator.


Well here's the start of what I'm working on....





I am doing front and rear cameras. Like I said, nothing really important at all, but some good 'ol fashion nerd work.

Wait, are the cameras for the Jeep or the tow rig? I could see how they would be useful in both....

haha. The camera setup is for the Jeep....basically like trail cams (non-recording). Useful as an additional spotter.

The tow rig has a backup camera and in-dash screen!

Skid Row radiator skid plate is installed. Took a whopping 3 minutes to install.

I finally got the hood pins installed this weekend. I am not moving at lightning speeds with anything Jeep related these days.

Flares yanked for the last time. My steel came in to build the rockers. Hope to get those started tomorrow.


.....that back end is kinda tall, huh? and the front bumper/winch are not on there in the pic.

Thanks man! It is very mild by comparison around here, but it will be note-worthy soon enough. I will be taking a look at your build here shortly.

We are starting the rockers at work tomorrow....using the shear to get the piece for each side, and then will use the plasma to cut the reliefs to allow the bending (bending at the house).

I am going to be working on my tailgate/license plate mount in the meantime. Will update soon enough.


I am looking into building my rear control arms. I can't help but see a mid-arm 4-link, stretch in my future, which will require custom arms. With that, there is no need spending the money on Rokem/Currie/Savvy arms, just to replace them with custom.
I will be using Johnny Joints at both ends, so I figure I will order the JJs and weld-in bungs, along with some DOM. I will make them the same length as if buying a set so I'll be fine in stock form. This will allow me to properly install an 8.8 and tummy tuck.
When the time comes to stretch, I will just have to buy more DOM and weld-in bungs.
