Just a couple more pics after I got it out of the shop. Very happy with the overall looks now, just need tires and rims sometime. Gunna start looking at those and some white knuckle sliders, recovery gear and some suspension upgrades now after I (hopefully) go back to work.

Thanks guys. I got pulled over earlier for the first time for my Halo lights earlier by a highway patrol, he said I couldn't have red or blue colors on the front. Anything else is fine though. Kinda sucks since red looks the best on it.

Lol, I'm still going to flash them at the cop that likes to sit at the end of the road to my house, see if he says anything or not. I think it's mainly the highway patrol and state troopers that like to give you shit about the smallest stuff. All the locals cops wave and give me compliments. Hell the guy that pulled me over said he liked them and asked me about the plasti dip on my wheels. Kinda funny conversation actually. He didn't notice my red license plate lights though... [emoji6]

Had some extra smoked vinyl that I did my taillights in so I decided to smoke the clear turn signal covers that are on the mirrors. I did it once before but it got wrinkled when I tried to heat it up and stretch it. This time I just stretched it and it turned out perfect.

Thanks! They were actually on myoung84's power wagon he had. I bought them from him when he parted it out and had to send them back to get repaired a little while after I got them. Then while they were getting fixed I had those halo rings installed. Jeremy at Retro Shop did them, here's his site: http://shop.retroshop.us/ He can do basically anything you want to them. Paint the inside, add HID projects, halo rings, "demon eyes", he could probably do LED cubes in them also like I've seen other places.

Not a major mod really but I took a page from a few of you guys on here and bougt a couple small BC type fire extinguishers and added one right inside the drivers door earlier. Not sure if I want to add the second one somewhere also or just keep it for a spare since there isn't really anywhere to put another that is somewhat out of the way like this one is.

Install was pretty straight forward, took me longer to find a couple self tapping screws to use that were the right length than it did to place it and screw it down. Got lucky and the 2 screws I used were different lengths but were just the right amount to attach it without having a ton of extra on the underneath side of the cab.

Great work... I would recommend a larger fire extinguisher..... My wagon caught on fire last year in WindRock, (long story) BUT it took a unit 3 times that size to put it out, and almost didnt have enough... that unit is good for about a 7 seconds of spray.... When a wagon goes up in flames, make sure you got a BIG fire extinguisher;)

The exhaust got so hot that it melted the charcoal canister,,,, and when the gas fume filled charcoal starts spewing out,,,,, It is one HELL OF A SIGHT TO SEE as the back of my rig irrupted in flames..... :doh:

Been awhile since I've done any updates on mine but I finally got things sorted out with my old job (they ended up closing the doors after 30+ years of being one of the higher paying factory jobs in the area) and ended up starting a new job at another foundry last month and I'm finally starting to make some good money again so hopefully I'll be getting rims and tires and White Knuckle sliders sometime this coming year.

Anyway awhile back I got a Bully Dog A pillar gauge pod and a Trinity gauge pod mount so my Trinity would stop falling off the windshield because of weather changes with that stupid suction cup mount. Install was easy as pie other than it took 20 minutes or more to get the 1 single bolt started in the threads in the A pillar, don't know why but I just couldn't find the threads for nothin'. Anyway I'm pretty happy with it, it is a little more textured than the factory Ram interior but the color matches and it fits pretty good, it needs trimmed a little up by the windshield, it fits tight and the tab that's supposed to go down into the dash doesn't want to go down in like it's supposed to. Also since it's made for a gauge and not a a tuner it doesn't sit all the way down into the piece without the tuner being tilted at a weird angle just because of the way it's made to match the factory pillars contour, but it still sits in it good and holds it tight when it's about half way down in so I'm happy with it. It alao doesn't block your vision as much as it did when it was on the windshield.

Also just today I got my Factor 55 Prolink and Warn wireless remote kit from 4 wheel parts that I was supposed to get for Christmas. Install was straight forward for both, the Prolink just needs the snap ring and pin removed and slid onto the end of the cable after you remove your hook, then pop the pin and snap ring back in and you're done. It doesn't quite fit in the gap between the upper and lower opening in the bumper so I'm going to have to figure something out there. For now I just snugged it up against the bumper. The Warn wireless remote was literally plug and play. I plugged the receiver into the plug, turned the remote on and it was working like a charm. I'm just going to leave both of them in the center console until I need them though since I don't use my winch that often. Sun was going down so the pictures are a bit crappy but you get the idea.

Went out and fixed my problem with the gap in the bumper. Dad had a small hand operated hydraulic spreader that worked perfect. Stuck a piece of 4" pipe above it and cranked on it and it made a perfect indention in the top part of the bumper, then just put the pipe on the bottom and did it again and now there's a perfect amount of room to stick my Prolink in to let it snug up against the rollers.

Decided to drop some coin on some good solid recovery gear since I finally got that Prolink. Now I'll atleast be able to have safe recoveries and not have to worry about shody recovery gear from the local farm store. I'm also still waiting on Factor 55 to get some more black Crosby shackles in stock so I can order 2 of those and one of their Shorty 3 straps aswell. The shackle in the pic is just a cheap $13 Smittybilt that I'm going to throw on there to drive around with, that way I don't have to worry about some A hole stealing a nice $30 shackle when it's sitting in a parking lot.

They're Daystar isolators, think they were like $10 for a pair.

Did you get the XL or just the Prolink? What made you decide?

I'm seriously considering the ProLink Bridle as it gives so many other winching options. Okay I admit it ... it looks really cool too.

Did you find a place that gives better deals on them?

Thanks guys, can't wait to use it. It's just the regular Prolink az, I'm fairly certain the XL would be too large to fit in the gap on the bumper, I had to bend mine open a tad just to get this one to fit. I was considering the flat link, but this will be right there and easier to hook up, you won't be fumbling around with your fingers by the rollers trying to get the flat link away to pull it out, just grab the shackle, flip the clutch and start pulling. And I didn't find anywhere that was cheaper than Factors site. I ordered from 4 Wheel Parts just because I already had an account, that came with free shipping, but I think Factor does that also.

Did my 4th oil change/maintenance yesterday at 28k and finished today. Changed the oil and filter with Royal Purple, I prefer them for the engine, everything else (Diffs, Trans, T Case, etc.) will get Amsoil. Changed the plugs with E3s, also prefer them, I have them in everything else and have had nothing but good things from them. Also rotated the tires, which probably have another 10k or so left, probably getting replaced before this summer though. Lubed the front drive shaft, checked everything in the front end for wear or abuse, checked the t case fluid, and some other small stuff.

Gotta say the plugs weren't that bad, only took 3 hours, about 1 1/2 hours per side. Passenger side took a little longer than the drivers but it was only because of the far rear cylinder that had almost no room to get to or do anything with. Drivers side was fairly easy with my long/skinny arms and being able to sit on the radiator support the whole time and lay down on top to reach the back. Just sucked having to install and remove the socket/u joint/extensions one at a time for each plug since there was no overhead room.

I also got tired of the stupid washer fluid sensor saying it was low, even after it was replaced about 2 months ago. Went on Rock Auto and got a new one and gasket for like $5, instead of the $25 the dealer wanted. Then I took an aluminum rivet, cut the head off and bent it around the prongs on the sensor so even when it's low it will think it has fluid. We'll see how it works.

Figured I'd bump this. Currently have a 2014 PW grille with the red inserts being Line X'd, along with a set of Bushwacker Pocket Style Flares, should be done Monday. Also having my Prolink powder coated red to match my tow hooks. Planning on ordering tires and rims sometime next month, probably in 2 or 3 weeks depending on how much I work. Definitely going with a set of 37" Cooper STT Pros, just not sure on the rims yet. Was planning on Black and Red Ballistic Jesters in a -12mm offset, but I don't know if I want 20s or 18s. 20s would look damn good and still have plenty of tire left to make it usable off road, but 18s would be perfect for a dual purpose rig. I don't plan on any hardcore wheeling anytime soon though so I may just go with the 20s for now. If I hate them I'll just bite the bullet, sell then and get 18s, we'll see. Another thing is after you go over a 17" rim you can't get a 12.50, only 13.50, which is kind of worrying me since they will most likely rub. I have a 2" leveling kit so I know they'll clear vertically, just don't know how much trimming and cutting I'll have to do when I turn or stuff them, especially with the -12 offset and the flares.

Anyway I guess I'll figure it out when I get them. I was set on doing 35s the first time and waiting until I do a full Thuren front end to go to the 37s but I figure if I can clear them now I'll just get them out of the way and then upgrade the front to clear better later on. I also re-did my first page post to better reflect what I have done to it currently and what I plan on doing later on. Wasn't really updating that so I figured I would sit down and fix it all.
