My latest 90 Build Up

This is a truck I have been working on for the past two months. Part show and part go. Always fun to play dressup when your not flipping the bill. Suggestions and opinions wanted. I think it has enought but not to much bling.

what has been done:

New paint
60K service
Extended SS brake lines
SS Exhaust with cats / O2 sensors
Castor Corrected Control Arms front and rear
Poly Bushings
OME springs and shocks
Roll Up doors
ZU Wheels
Britpart winch bumper
Rear jump seats and seat belts
Tune up
Nitto Tires
Window Tint
Badger Soft Top w/ lemo tint
Various alloy dress items inside
LRX Grill Kit

Anything missed on the various dream sheets, other than a snorkle maybe.

shame on you letting that 110 pickup become a garbage bin.

Hate the rims, hate the pre-runner bumper, hate the poly bushings. Like pretty much everything else.

Usually the most worthwhile upgrades are the ones you can't see. Because I can see so much bling on that truck I'm assuming you haven't done much underneath.

rims and bumper are a little too ghetto. A SG bumper and teflon coated steel American Racing rims might be a "meaner" option.

Nice Job Stephen!

I like the wheels,grill,and bumper..............It's nice to see something other than the usual.......Nato,ARB,RN grill,etc,etc.

It is probably a bit much for most of the guys here, but it will fit right in here in Florida!

I love it! The grill looks great IMO and I have always loved those wheels. I am kind of indifferent to the bumper but I think it works well with the other stuff. Personally I never cared for the SG bumper b/c I don't like that forward lean they put on the brush guard...looks a little too home-made to me for some reason.

Thanks for all the opinions. What needed to be done underneath has been. New suspension, brake lines, exhaust, all fluids, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, seals etc. There is no rust or other problem areas and the tires are small enough to not require a gear change.

The truck will not be used off road much so under protection is not required either. The truck received all needed repairs as well as the dress stuff.
