Default Mxer's Mild DD Build
Hey everyone! New to the forum and wanted to start a thread to follow some of the build details. The scope of this build is a little different from much of what I have seen while looking through the forum but im excited for it. Since it will be primarily used for day to day stuff, I wont be building a crazy off road machine but rather something that will be fun on the street with little compromise to its original off-road ability.

Current Tuck Mod List:
Procharger D1SC Complete Kit
Tuned by Torrie Mcphail
Diamondeye Stainless Turndown Exhaust
AEM Failsafe Wideband/Boost Gauge
Top Perch
Method Con6 Bronze 20x9 +18
Cooper STT Pro 37x13.5

Added 4/1/17:
LED Pod Fog Lights
40" LED bar behind grill
New intake pipe and AEM Dryflow filter
Colormatched fenders and bumpers
Built Right Seat latches

Added 4/14/17:
DeeZee Tailgate Assist


February 2nd I purchased this 2014 SE with 8k miles. Completely stock and no different than the day the old man took it off the showroom floor.



About a month before I found the truck I came across a crazy deal on Racingjunk and purchased a Procharger kit for a truck I still hadn't found haha. So after a week of N/A power I had to do something.





And March 5th my wheels and tires arrived.



Update 4/1!
Went out and actually used the truck for what it was intended on a weekend excursion. Really good time but had a couple of mishaps, ripped the intake coupler and slashed up on of the tires a bit.









One of the lady and I hiking around some cliff-side indian ruins haha



So in replacing the intake I decided to upgrade from the previous K&N filter setup.



And after the tire issue decided to trim the pinch weld back a hair for insurance.









My Built Right rear seat latch straps came in so I got those installed and made a little tie down setup for the B&W Tow and Stow





I had been planning on painting some stuff for awhile but time didnt permit until recently, so the flares and bumpers got paint matched







Update 4/14:

Added the DeeZee tailgate assist, definitely a pretty nifty accessory.



Also spent the week trying to dial in the alignment to my liking, will get a chance to test it out at the AZ Raptor Run on the 30th!


Plenty more to come so stay tuned!

Wheels do look sweet. Makes me wish I'd gone bronze on my black truck!

(Procharger isn't bad either)

Thanks for the kind words, Im currently still working on tuning but it is definitely really fun to drive. One thing I really wouldnt recommend to anyone is the procharger, at least in a D1. If you were going for big numbers with an F1 or something it would make more sense. In the process of installing some lights and will have pics up soon!
