    DemonSpeedn You talking to me?

    Are you gonna make a page for both rigs Sean or just clyde since he is now the offroad rig?
  5. Silverback

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    I've got more I want to do to it. Probably 7 or 8 mods left... maybe a few more. Just because its not a dedicated trail rig doesn't mean its not capable or ready at the drop of a hat to do so. Future mods will be aimed at camping, performance, some expo mods and a few interior mods. But for the most part, yes its done.

    I'll do both. My other build thread on TW is so long and all the mods are scattered through it all.. I'll try to consolidate it in this one.

    So a mall crawler and a trail rig thread. alright man, so is 12 a good time to show up at your place with a sledge? lol jk man. That is cool. I wanna clean up my build thread on here too but dont have the time yet.
  7. DemonSpeedn

    DemonSpeedn You talking to me?

    I don't even have a build thread yet

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    I wouldn't call it a mall crawler, maybe retired trail rig or dedicated tow/camping/expo/backup trail rig. But mall crawler is not even close.

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    I'll be sure to take plenty of pics. :)
  11. AlienXtx

    AlienXtx Nignog

    make sure you post them in the mall crawler section..oh wate...we don't have
  12. Silverback

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    I thought it was your build thread? :D

    Naa I ripped off a finder flare and that's a mall crawl no
  14. Silverback

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    Just need to be more careful where you park it at. LOL

    I've ripped all the flares off at one point or another. They are $$$$.
  15. AlienXtx

    AlienXtx Nignog

    Yeah I'm thinking about trashing the factory ones and getting those bushwhacker pocket flares instead
  16. Silverback

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    They are a LOT cheaper. IIRC the factory ones are about $250 each! Then they wanted another $250 to paint and install! Hell the little clips are about $4 - $6 each! At least with the BSP the bushwackers will match pretty close.

    Really? at 200 a pop I should pull mine and sell them.
  18. Silverback

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

  19. AlienXtx

    AlienXtx Nignog

    Yeah at that price I'm deff going with bushwhacker IMO they look better anyway
  20. Silverback

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    I'm not a fan of the fake screw holes on them. If they were functional I would like them more. I suppose a handful of sheetmetal screws could remedy that.
