Default My lbz thread (pic heavy)

Not a "build thread" just more of a keep track of what I've done thread because I can't remember.

Bought this truck out of Denver, was originally a Arizona truck so it's very very clean underneath. Higher miles but I don't care honestly I wanted something I can drive and not worry about miles.

Crew long Ton single wheel 07 classic, favorite color.

Flew into Denver, met the seller at the airport, did the paperwork and drove it 800 miles home with zero issues.

Some before pictures.



Next step was window tint because I can't live without it. I actually had it scheduled for Monday and I bought the truck on Saturday.
5% over everything and 20% on the windshield. It's the best thing I've ever had tint wise.





I ordered some Denali headlights for it, I love the light output of projector style lights.


Then I drove it a couple weeks before I decided I wanted to sell my ford so I pulled the wheels from it and put on the z.

20x12 and 33-12.5s

I drove it a lot before I touched anything else. Last week I rebuilt the front end, installed sleeves and a dhd brace, and rough country upper control arms. All new bilstien 5100 shocks all around.

Have you had any issues with law enforcement because of the windshield tint? Where I am from it will get you a ticket in a heartbeat.

Put it to work for the first time since I've owned it last weekend. Love how the longbed tows.

Swapped my ford off and hauled a Lincoln to the buyer for nick.



Also picked up my new wheel and tire set up from nick. 22s and 33s



Also picked up color match weather techs


Which brings us up to date. Changed the oil and trans spin on last night.. I've put some miles on this thing since I bought it.


Gave it a solid foam bath and a coating of my favorite sealant this morning.

What brand lights are those? I bought and returned 2 sets before I decided to just swap over lenses to the stock housing. Aftermarket stuff didn't line up for chit, and the brackets weren't very secure.
