I thought it would be cool to see everybody's before and afters. We all know how your trucks look today but lets see some from yesteryear.

Post em up

This mine the day I drove her home mid Feb 2008 with a bad water pump, bald 31s, a stanky-a$$ smellin' cab, a worn out bench seat and long list of other problems.

Mods go something like this: "SchmitKin" built Rear bumper, "SchmitKin" built front bumper, "SchmitKin" built roll-cage, winch, sliders, +/-5" lift, 33" tires, cutout cab, bucket seats, rear locker, on board air, re-geared F&R (slightly),home-built tail gate & tire carrier and hell I don't know a ton of other stuff.

:clap:
Most excellent Ted!
Tastefully done mods, but that bolt on light bar :hillbilly:
How bout a full roof rack, cantilevered over the cab, w/ a pop-up tent. Then the lights can go up front. You'd be set for the expedition ride the club's planning. I'd like to sign up for one in the near future. I'll se if I can find a stocker pic of my 40. Don't know if I have one for the :pig:

still one of the nicest 40s I've seen, didn't you also add a clicking noise to it?

Added and then removed. Was the ebrake but not just the cable. Sheered the 4 bolts that hold the backing plate to the T-Case :eek:.

Luckily even my limited skills were enough to fix it. Just gotta bolt it all back together, tie in the cable to the handle and I'm all set. Very strange ebrake setup!

good news indeed, hopefully we'll see you & the 40 again at Ralph's or at your "favorite place" in North Carolina.

Here it is when we first brought the 40 home. The driver’s seat was sitting on a rock to get the right height and a nice hole in the passenger floor board.




Then after a new tub and paint.




And finally how it sits now.

Mine from some time before and now. My Dad purchased it new, so the before was quite a while after that...

First wheelin trip - weekend of my 16th birthday. Only mod was a removed top and doors.

How it sat for a while- 33's and lockers. (Ga Cruisers run to Forest Service roads near Ellijay)

How it sits now. Tellico just after this past Christmas.

I wish I could find some pictures from when I bought it, I've got them somewhere. Had a sweet irridescent green paintjob on the fiberglass cap.
