    I have wanted to build this truck for a very long time. It will be a daily driver. The final color will be 2012 Mustang Grabber blue with light gray interior. My 5.3 swap was straight forward. I already have 2012 Honda Odyssey 2nd row seats that will be my front seats. I will be making brackets for those and showing you guys. I have the Yukon rear seat bracket made but I do not like the height. I will be remaking it. I will be dropping her as soon as I figure out exactly the direction I want to go. A softtopper is coming. I welded the speaker bar brackets to the roof. I didn't want to cut the dash or doors. I don't like being like everyone else and this bar is loud enough to get over the road noise with the top off. I like the height and feel of the Avalanche console. Speedhut gauges with an Autometer bezel.

    I think you guys are talking about the front bumper. I know how it looks but its from a truck my Grand dad had. Daily reminder of him. Plus, have you ever driven in MS? HAHAHA

    I like the bumper guards. In fact, I bought a set to install on my truck once I paint it. Someone here on the forum as a little envy for them.
