Hey guys. I've posted on here before but figured I d create my own build threat. I'll start with the initial photos of my truck and who knows where it ll end. For starters it s a 2014 XLT SCREW 4x4 with max tow package and 3.73 gears in Green Gem Metallic. Leather interior and flow through console. I specifically purchased the max tow with 3.73 rear end with a lift and 35" tires in mind. Figured 3.73 s would lend themselves to 35" tires better than a 3.55 or 3.31. I found my truck brand new in buffalo, ny and got 10k off sticker after rebates and negotiating. Love the color. I've yet to see another Green Gem Screw where I live.

The day after I bought it: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1429312754.128532.jpg

Soon after picking it up I found this sight and the mod bug bit hard. I knew I wanted a lift and ended up ordering a 6" rough country lift after reading tons of reviews. I always wanted Nitto Trail Grapplers on my old truck so they were a lock from the beginning. The hunt for wheels ended on black fuel hostages in 20x9 with -12 offset for some "stance". Here she is as of last week.

Love the height and stance but she s gonna be a rock thrower. Due to that these are on the way ImageUploadedByTapatalk1429313246.379783.jpg
Not bushwacker a but close, went with stampede rough riders after countless great reviews. They ll be ptm green to go with the truck.

Coming up are tints, more ptm, and more...

Speedometer has been corrected thanks to a hypertech speedo calibrator. Also, my stampede flares have arrived and are at the paint shop. Should be ready in a few days. I'll throw up some install pics when I get them back from paint.

Fender flares are here. Here's a mid assembly shot. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1430263376.978873.jpg

I then moved on and washed, clay barred, washed again, polished and waxed ImageUploadedByTapatalk1430263414.912570.jpg

Lastly I put on the new flares. Ptm green gem stampede fender flares. The screws that came with it didn't fit so a quick trip to advanced auto parts and I was good to go. Took awhile but overall not horrible. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1430263487.792145.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1430263500.904212.jpg

Now it's beer thirty... Done fussin with the truck today.

I did not know that was a color, have not seen any truck like that before.

Did you drill your fender for those flares? I hope you painted the metal or that is going to be rust city.
