Default Lease truck build is finally ready!

I bought this truck earlier in the year from a lease mate that did not renew his membership. It was pretty dirty, and in rough shape. I spent some time doing bodywork to repair the dents and rusts. Then my son Tyler, and his friend ripped everything out of the cab to we could start all over. We took out seats, carpet, center console, everything. After it was empty I sanded and sprayed the cab floor with black bedliner. Then placed new floor mats, a new console, and seat covers. We didn't put carpet back in it. I wet sanded the truck, and painted it camo. Then added a back bumper and sprayed both bumpers, and the bed with bedliner spray. My son, added extra leaf springs under the truck to give it more support. I plan to haul a full water tote in the truck to my stand and refill totes. We added three light bars, a 50" on the front, and two 24" bars on the sides. Last thing I added was the window stickers. Got to represent!

I will be hauling it to the lease Labor Day weekend.

That thing turned out great. I think you'll appreciate another small light bar facing back on a different switch. Just a suggestion.

That crossed my mind. I may still do it. I have the front light on one switch, and both sides on another.

Truck looks great!

I would advise those young men against using concrete blocks as improvised jack stands. In the very least, turn them so the webs are side to side and not up and down.

Wood cribbing is an excellent jack stand substitutes. I use 4x6 and 6x6 left over from deck and retaining wall builds.

Good advice. That definitely wasn't the safe way to add springs.

Yes. I did all the work in my yard

I don't remember what brand I used, but it came out looking like a new truck on the inside. I didn't want carpet. I can clean it a lot easier this way.

Perfect truck to do it on.

I sprayed several layers of matte clear coat also to prevent paint damage while running it through the woods.
