Default K.Strong build

I guess its about time I make a build thread now that I have a bit done to the truck.

Got the truck January 2010 with 0 kms on it.



First thing I did was install my old deck/CB that I had in my old Corolla.


Got some tint on and changed my CB whip to two dual sticks


Next mod was tinted tails and corners. This was in early Sept.



End of Sept. I picked up some new 31s and somewhere along the lines I got some running boards too.


Mid October I moved from Nova Scotia to Alberta. This week I did my first mods since getting here. 130w KC Daylighters. Gonna make the grille look better too, don't mind the quick job to make the lights fit.


Recon Xtreme light bar.


Truck as of last night. 40000kms on er


Not too bad for a poor 21 year old I think lol. Huge thanks to --Weezl-- for the garage/tools and help for the lights and light bar.

Plans for the future include:
Paint headlights
Body lift
Rims
Gears
Suspension lift after warranty
33s

set up a video camera behind it, so you can see the whole bar, and both tails, hit record, and hop in, hit the brakes, flash both signals a couple times, and make sure to get reverse on there!
