I'm thinking of mounting all 4 duallys behind the grill...

Anybody seen a setup like that?

2 in the most commonly used spot behind the grill, but maybe drop the other 2 down and inward a bit...

Just brainstorming here...

Thanks man! Found a lot of inspiration from this forum, and hope to share some knowledge in return.

Still trying to come up with a mounting solution for my duallys that may not be the norm...

After that, I'm going to hit up Franchi Motorsports for the Stainless Works Off Road Downpipe and Catback. Unsure of which catback, but likely the S-Tube.

Just a few new pics I took tonight with my T3i. I'm gonna have to get some more lenses and learn how to use this before I get great pics, but I'm learning...

Wow! Definitely got me jealous. After I saw the first set of pics of your truck on raptor take-offs, I've been trying to find a set for mine!! Truck looks truly amazing man.

Well, this blows. Can't edit my OP to add to my mod list.

I've got a few random goodies for the truck:

LEDs to line along the underside of my bed rails to illuminate the bed.
Zombie Assault Vehicle (tow hitch cover, valve stem caps, hunting permit)
DeeZee Tailgate Assist Easy-Downs

Also decided against the Wagner Intercooler and will go with the Full Race Intercooler in anodized black.

Upon reviewing more exhaust videos, I've found a couple more combos I like...

Not a big deal at all, but I installed my DeeZee Tailgate Assist last night.

Took all of 11 minutes.

When using the nutsert tool, be sure to tighten the nut against the washer and not the Allen key.

Hows the Bak roll-x performing? Lots of mixed reviews on this one for build quality and keeping the bed dry.

I'm a bit torn actually. Mine has bent rails, so it doesn't sit flush on the tailgate, and I had to manipulate mine a bit to get it to close.

Honestly, I'd like to return it for some new rails before I ultimately decide if I like it or not.

So far, it's been great at staying dry, sans the tailgate area. Water gets in where the gap is. But I know it'd be fine if the rails were straight.

Only negative about the actual product, is that the BakBox doesn't work with it.

I'm waiting on a revised BakBox to be released.

Seeing out of the back window wasn't a big deal to me, until I loaded a bunch of crap in the bed when I moved my mom last weekend. Such a great feature!
