Hey All.

Picked up my 2nd TB in my life, an '05 EXT 4.2 4x4 with 75k miles for a few bucks. Added a rough country 2" lift/level AR tires** with 25mm offsets and some cooper a/t3's @ 255/75/17.

Glad to be here!

**Edit: AR EST 95 17x7.5 25mm WHEELS (not AR tires)

Working on pic, maybe this works??

Maybe this will work

Talk soon.

Thanks. Next would be getting all interior speakers working, then mostly looks: bull bar, exterior lighting, etc. Also general maintenance ie trans flush, differntials, etc. Maybe some suspension upgrades as budget allows. The wheels and rims were the first steps, she looked pretty frumpy with balded 245's and banged up stock wheels, and the low front end.... Would like cab marker lights, trying to find info on that

Not hardcore like some of the machines on here, generic everyday back roads here and there, but I have an opportunity or two a year to do better and there's always room for improvement! We get into pa vt, and nh on occasion for camping, so could find more opportunity. But just as important for me she will serve dual purpose: everyday driver, and gotta look cool of course, doing that. I think these have a real great look beefed up a little, especially the ext, which I like. I had swb before this. It's a really cool truck to revisit in 2018, has solid bones. I also have a 14 ram 1500 ecodiesel with 35 dick cepeks.

Ah nice, I guess I am more of the screw comfort let’s make this piece of crap capable!

Still, I’m nowhere near some of these rigs... yet.
