Default Knowlen's Build Thread

I figured it is time for me to start a build thread since my truck is currently going under another major round of work. I bought the truck 2 years ago from my dad right after a graduated high school, this is what it looked like back then.



Soon after I bought it i installed a rough country lift kit on it.







I then happily drove it for a year doing small things here and there until the unthinkable happened. The engine went, soo i decided it was time to do away with the 4.6 and it was time to throw in a 5.4 so i pulled it out in my garage in grand forks.





During the swap the garage was broke into and my sound system was gutted using my own tools.

Midway through the project i moved back to bismarck



On the trip the cummins threw a rim.

Started the process of bed-lining my rockers and bumpers today. I am using U-Pols Raptor Liner. Got everything prepped today and will be spraying tomorrow.
