Well, I was able to get over to the shop today and get some work accomplished. The front end is finished and now we await getting the bed completed and the frame straightened.

In addition, I was able to get the lights mounted on each side of the winch mount.

Lastly, the front edge of the driver door and the rear of the cab have been repaired and are awaiting paint.

Some I located on eBay LINK HERE for $275...and they look GOOD on the truck. Simple install all 3 connections are plug and play. I ended up changing out the parking/blinker bulb for an LED and it looks even better.

Was excited to get my new 12k lb X20 winch today...but alas it has been delayed due to the weather... grumble grumble...

Once I get it here, I will take a bunch of pics to document the install...for reference if anyone else is thinking along this line...

Had her moved today over to the shop which will be replacing the rearend housing. While there, I fabricated a bracket for the overflow tank. Since I am using a 2011+ Volant CAI on a 2010, I was not satisfied with the way the tank mounted. It was too close to the headers and I think over time would have gotten brittle with the heat. I was able to raise it 2" and move it 4" closer to the inner fender which took care of the potential problem. I will take some good pics when I take it back apart to have the bracket powder coated. For now it works, and in my opinion, looks better too.

I was also able to get the pod brackets mounted and the floods and spots mounted in the corners. Since these brackets came with no hardware or instructions, it took a little effort and a couple trips to HomeDepot for hardware, but they are mounted and definitely not going anywhere.

I am looking forward to getting the wiring completed. I found a good writeup here on the forum and have located the wires in the dash and under the hood. It is now just a matter of me creating a mini-harness for the wires and getting then all in a loom.
