Parts on the way!

Well, I finally bit the bullet and ordered my first round of parts for my LML.
Just thought I'd share!

Heres the list!
1.) WeatherTech Bug shield and Vent visors

2.) D-ring shackle receiver hitch bracket

3.) Powdercoated Billet Bowtie emblems!!

4.) Nfab Cab length steps-extended cab

Has anyone had experience with these steps?? I heard good things.
Lemme know what ya'll think!!

I installed the Nfabs on mine as well... Love them. Went wheel to wheel also because of my drag up tank in the bed.

If you want to see the install, click on the link in my signature...

Armalite, thanks a bunch for taking the time to document the installs like you do. It makes my job a hell of alot easier! What on earth is a drag up tank?? LMLFanatic: Yeah i was thinking about the wheel to wheel but decided against it cuz even if i got the toolbox id still need to climb up into the bed to reach shit in the middle of the box. Gotta get my exercise somehow!!

Down here we call the drag up tank our other fuel tank in the bed of the pick up. I have an aluminum diamond plate toolbox/fuel tank combo in the bed of my truck, that sits below the bed rails. 50 gallon tank, plus tool box. Got the best of both worlds...

What are we discussing here...


Couldn't resist, had to do it...

I have noticed that mine tend to slip some. I'm still very careful when using them when they are wet. I have slipped a few times, but just a very slight slip. Not completely lose my footing and hit the ground, but enough to catch me off-guard...

Damnit Arma, I knew you'd call me out on the slippery when wet thing!! i hear ya they look a little slippery. Anyone ever rhino-lined it? I had no idea about the extra fuel tank, good idea if i could ever actually afford to fill it..(college life). BTW, I checked out your build thread, good stuff on there, got so wrapped up in reading every word that i never got to the steps intsall, but I'm working my way there. I just finished up reading Flying6's build thread, which took some serious time.

No problem bud...

I debated on rhino lining mine, but decided to wait. I wanted to run them as they were for now, and see if the rocks chipped away the coating very bad... If it holds up well, I will leave them alone. Once the coating wears, I will go ahead with the rhino lining...
