Subscribing to this, the "budget build" aspect piques my interest.

Didn't take long for you to grab a can of the Dip, AJ. :lol: It's only been, what, 3 days?

Actually purchased a can of plastidip the second day of owning the truck :) That stuff is awesome, there were a few times spraying that I was sure going to create some runs in the paint but it dried up just fine and evenly. Looking at tires I think I could get a set of BF's for around my price range, won't be for a bit but that's the plan. Next on the list is another DIY with the help of Griot's to detail the truck.

I know you're a dedicated AA employee, but if you decide to look outside the realm of employee discounts, check out Tread Depot. The guys are top notch and have killer prices. Best of all, their customer service is right up there with AA at the very top.

Now, go plastidip that whole dang thing!

Not much to update on but did get some time this week after work to install some new speakers. The stock ones were unbelievably bad and literally fell apart as I was taking them out. For the fronts I went with a Sony Xplod 3 way speaker and in the rear went with a 3 way Polk audio. Install was really straightforward and the results are impressive. Few pictures below, also added a picture of a Racing School I went to last weekend! ....O I also ordered my leveling kit! More on that when I have a chance of taking some pictures.
