Over the the last 2 years I have made several mods to the P/U and was thinking about doing a custom dual mod with the Alcoa Wheels and all. I'm really tempted. :whistling:

Heres a picture of the mod...

That is one beautiful truck. My major modification involved hanging a tree-shaped air freshener from my rear view mirror.

Looks nice Vern. I wonder what that would look like on an Avalanche?

Looks sweet Vern!

As for mods, well not all that much on the new rig. I have added a Viper 881XP Remote Start & Alarm (which signals me if its being broken into), replaced the speakers with a Pioneer & JBL setup keeping the factory head unit, mounted my Mag light, installed my Line of Fire LED lits on the rear end, added the C-BETR convex mirror systems, swapped my amber red neck lenses for clear lenses, added additional reverse/work lights, removed the inside and outside stickers, and added Husky Mud Flaps.

I am deciding between a roll top or folding tonneau cover now or if I want to put on a cap, though I am 99% sure I want a cover. Then I want to find four 15" clear LED strips to mount under the bed rails to light up the bed and put in a Line-X bed liner.

Hey Vern, you're gonna have to do the same thing to the Outback to get 'er up that high.

Otherwise, it'll be nothing but sparks behind you. ;)

Well, we're going to skip over the intermediate truck mods, truck fever, larger trailer fever, 5'ver fever, etc., etc. and go right to the top. Which one do you think will look best pulling the new hummer we'll be getting as a toad?

Of course we plan on a matching paint job.

Now we can't decide if we should get XM satellite radio or sirius, but then again the auto tracking satellite has music stations too, but not nearly as many. Then there's which plasma TV to get and the color granite for the counters, which tile, cherry or maple cabinets, maybe walnut, definitely leather on the sofas, but which color?
No truck or trailer anymore, replaced by four Subarus and a Toyota

The first to present his case seems right,
till another comes forward and questions him.
