    Well I guess I will start a build thread so I can watch the transformation of my rig and share it with our community.

    Picked her up 04/21/2018.

    Super White TRD ORP

    Oil changes @ 2.5K, 5K & 10K Miles so far.

    "Sgt. Reckless". What a cool assed name for those of us "in the know". I think a pic of your "Reckless" with the statue at Pendleton would be amazing.

    My cousin was her caretaker in her final years and is referenced in the book by Robin Hutton. I have an autographed copy.

    Thanks!
    What a cool idea! I will make a special trip down to Pendleton for a pic.

    That is awesome. She was the inspiration for my “War Horse”.

    Love it!

    That’s a great rule to go by. I’m “rewarding” myself with upgrades and mods when I pay something off or accomplish other goals.

    Welcome! :thumbsup: Hey just a reminder, there is an airbag where your EDC is. That EDC will be one painful projectile if that airbag goes off.

    First “real” mod.
    Installed the 12Volt Solutions Remote Start modules. Pretty easy install, just follow the YouTube video that it directs you to. The best part is that you keep and use your OEM Key fob. Even better, I got the phone module and can start the car from anywhere.

    Installed some Smitty Built Shackles on the front tie down hooks. Gives her a splash of color.

    Add them to a black SSO bumper for even more contrast.

    Installed the Bolt trailer hitch lock pin. I like that I can use the OEM key which means no extra keys to carry!
    Matches the current color scheme too.
