Plastidip'd Wheels as well as Emblems. Liked how it turned out.

Looks glossy, but that is just from the angle. Matte finish. Bedliner feel to it.

Been gone with the Army for a long time, but was able to upgrade when i returned.

Took out My Rough Country 2.5" levelling kit and replaced it with Marks 3" lift

Replaced stock struts with Bilstein Struts

Bought some 285/70/R17 (32.8") Nitto Trail Grapplers and some 17" Addict XD wheels

Still need to trim a little plastic for some articulation in the front
