This pic shows what is usually loaded up in the cargo area 24/7. Backpack and aluminum tool case for work, Air compressor and charger for when they are needed. Not seen is a 5000 lb tow strap, 5000 lb tow strap loop (for wrapping around tow hooks or areas the hooks on the tow straps will not work), and extention cord in the center floor compartment. Air pressure gauge and amorall wipes in the side compartments. Eventually i may wind up building an organizer/rear cargo area cover for the rear.

Forgot to mention this in a previous post. I installed this back in december after having the box from it riding around in the back for close to a month lol.

Sirius Starmate 7 Sat radio.

Planned mods on this truck:

BDS 2" suspension lift
Tahoe Z71 rear springs
Liftmiester spacers/adapters
Goodyear Wrangler Silent armor tires P245/70R17s. These came off of one of the fleet trucks at 50% tread left. Mostly going to run them because they are larger and will prob give me better grip then the existing Firestones.
Westin Safari light bar
custom roof rack
Lightforce Lance 140 lights on safari light bar
Rigid Dually LED lights on roof rack
Remote control set up for operating lights (ordering this on the 31st)

Still debating which way im going wheel wise. Either stock wheels with spacers or Pro Comp steel wheels with adapters

Well on friday I had the exhaust redone on my truck. I got rid of the rear resonator in favor of a straight pipe with the resonators old turn down tip. And the original muffler was replaced with a Flow Pro Max glass packed turbo style muffler. I will post the vids I have of the end result when I get back onto my computer at home. For now I will post the pics I have of the res delete.

Nice ride, will look great with a 2 1/2 lift.:wink:

Thanks, It will be getting an Rcx 2" lift with the same strut/shock combo as Djthumper uses. Larry and I had a discussion about set ups last night and it was determined that his setup would work well for me due to the fact I drive on similar terrain.
