2" coils/new shocks
New front bumper with winch
Tuffy center console
285/75/16 bfg km2
Maybe new rear carrier with gas can holder
Braided oil lines
misc small repairs

It's a great foundation, and I'm proud to have it as it sits. There's a lot of fun putting your own touches on it, though.

What a great truck.

The previous owner just put new oil cooler lines on (as in less than a month ago.) I plan on the upgrade, but am I okay for a while?

Thx

Yes you'll be good for a while. But recognize the fact that the stock LR lines WILL blow. Mine took about 10 years and 140k miles. There was a leak and lots of smoke, luckily no fire. Many others have not been so lucky.

You have time on yours, but getting a good set made or buying a good aftermarket set should be somewhere on your list. That truck looks really nice and nice ones are getting harder to find, have fun!

Nice truck! My brother lives in Jefferson near you and I have been meaning to drag mine up there to wheel in NE Ga. We take the quads up there a couple time a year, some fun wheeling near you. That will be a great set up.

Very Nice. I am partial to the Alpine White myself. My kids wish I had the full cage, but oh well. Enjoy!

congratulations! very nice truck. looks to be clean.

Personally, I think Alpine White is the best color on the D90.

Where did you get it? It looks familiar.

But keep in mind if you do go rails you can still rock the Tickford look...with the new Exmoor tops! I've got one sitting in my garage I need to put on.
