Betty White started her new life out with me on April 28th, 2009 with a whopping 36,326 miles as I was leaving the dealers lot. Now at 100,366 miles and counting, we have gone through many changes but all of which for the better. Our goal is to travel the western United States in the next year and be mostly self sufficient while doing so (while obviously fueling and eating from other peoples efficiency). My mods lean more towards the Expedition side of car enthusiam, while there is some street and off road mods installed and to come!
OEM Fender Flares, TGD Brush Guard/sylvania fog lamps, Range Rider Apex camper shell with Thule 66" load bars.
Custom built center console, custom under seat storage bins (Pics soon!), CB, Escalade overhead console.
Pioneer double din DVD head unit, 160 gb iPod classic, JVC door speakers, Garmin Nuvi GPS.
Air Raid CAI and TBS, high performance cam and fuel injectors, flowmaster 40 series single in dual out exhaust with custom bent tubing all the way down the line, Hypertech max energy tuner
1.5" Zone off road body lift, Pro Comp 2.5" leveling kit set to 1", Bilstein shocks all the way around.
Helo 842 17" wheels, 285/70-17 Cooper Discoverer AT3
And just a couple of my favorites that I probably have posted here before, but will post again:

Soon to come before road trip:
Rear bumper build (swing out tire carrier being the main attraction)
Power windows/door locks and window tint
Leather seat covers
Sleeping platform (rebuilding, stay tuned!)
Yakima Q-Towers and basket for the cab
Long in the future mods planned:
Front winch bumper (can't decide if I want to do tube or plate)
Suspension lift (really only want another couple of inches so I can fit 35's)
On board air
Dual battery set up
Double din head unit
WAY down the road:
6.0 and a 6 speed swap.
Maybe a SAS, though I haven't really thought of that.
As you can see, my way down the road list is just random stuff that I may do here and there. Otherwise, I don't want a ton more done to the truck. 1,000,000 more miles would be great!

Added a new head unit which I pictured above, but I'll throw it down here too:
I am going to continue to use this thread specifically as a build log. Anything I add or change, I will update as I go and all that jazz. It's a lot simpler than creating a ton of different threads, and I'm sure the mods will be happy to see one thread for all my picture pimping ;)
For a while I was getting scam emails from posts of things I had for sale on craigslist. I would respond with a email saying that I had put all the info that they wanted on a webpage and provided a link. The link was a rick roll. Every time you clicked to close the window a dialog box would pop up and move around with the words to the song. It took like 15 clicks to get it to stop. Those guys stopped emailing me!
