Default Before and After

Tim's Plasti-dip thread had me looking at some old pictures. I pulled up some pics from when my truck was new to me. It's almost sad...... it was so nice and shiny. No dents, no rock rash, no pinstripes. I feel like I took a really nice vehicle and almost ruined it. It's nothing like the plush ride I drove home in. But, the times between these two stages are worth every dent, scratch and scrape and that's what really counts.

Gave me a good thread idea. Let's see your before and after shots.

Before....







After....

What a great sequence of 3 pictures! A lot of hard work in there. I agree with Tim....

I know what you mean Stan. Have done this a few times. That is why I picked a clean but older 100 to wheel.. Hard to take a nice 28-30k vehicle and build it up, only to abuse it off road.

I have to say the 100 is working well for me and the family, for what I am doing these days. I also really like the 2.5" softer springs with airbags for trips. Super plush around town and stiff enough for trips with gear.
