    I've heard of "bucket seats", but "crate seats" is a new one on me.

    Looks terrific!
    The greatest gift you have to give to the world is that of your own self~transformation.

    After that you will really appreciate the stock seats. Your ass would've looked like a checker board! (and it's not the first time I've seen it either, it's somewhere between desperation and madness)

    Well, finally wrapped up the back to serviceable condition project:

    The reupholstered bench seat came in today and she's officially race ready!

    Overall I've done a lot:
    Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, thermostat, tstat housing, battery clamps, coil, belts, 95 amp alternator, wipers, rear brakes, front brakes (all new), front wheel bearings, shocks all around, sway bar links/bushings, tires. Also coated the skid plates and wheels with bedliner. Changed every fluid and filter on the truck (yes even the blinker fluid). Lastly, upgraded the headlights to Rampage H4 headlights.

    On the interior we dynamatted the floor, roof, and back wall. Added some spray window/door foam in the holes to help minimize noise. Made a new back wall panel, installed Infinity Reference speakers and a Sony single DIN media receiver paired with a 8" powered sub. New cab carpet and a heck of a lot of cleaning.

    Still on the to do list: Bedliner, ashtray, LED fog lights, back up lights, Class III hitch, window tint, and under rail bed lights. Also looking at a new exhaust and muffler with a Cat delete.

    She's a beast!

    Just broke 1500 miles on the hooptie. A mix of highway and city driving and she's holding an average of 22.77 mpg.

    Running smooth, but thinking I might have to do tie rod ends as I have a little bit of play in the steering. Just ordered a new muffler and tail pipe as it sounds like she busted a baffle loose.

    Any guidance on manual locking hubs? I have had the wheel lock light come on as I hit 70ish on the interstate and figured I might as well plan ahead to replace the auto locking hubs with manuals. I see some Aisin hubs on Amazon but figured I'd ask for some input.
