Default "bone stock" durango

I need a build thread so I'm starting one.
Current mods are:
Shaved heads
R/T seats
Woodgrain interior for extra class
Removed the running boards
And added a light bar.
The goal of this build is to keep it as close to stock suspension to keep it daily drivable, but also make it a more capable offroader. I want to build front and rear tube bumpers for it, make rocker guards, and make skid plates for the engine, trans, t-case, and the gas tank.
It started out like this:
Then I added 2 tone r/t seats
Then I rear ended a guy and dented the stock front bumper:
And the tires rubbed the bumper and crap:
So I got this:
And made this out of it:
And then I went back to the stock front bumper:

And then I got this today...
So that's it so far....

I am taking the plasti dip off the wheels pretty soon too when I get new tires. I got tired of it.

Are you going to at least paint the bracket, or rock it white?

Does this mean that you won't post any more pics of this manly machine in random thoughts anymore? What are you going to put on for tires?

Pretty much. I think I'm going with the same tires I currently have on it. They have been pretty great.

If you'd be looking for something a little more aggressive by any chance at all, I'd recommend the general grabber at2. Have them on my truck and love them. Cheap too.

I have the grabber HTS tires on right now. They are a great street tire and are fine off road. Plus this set has 80-100k miles on them so they wear pretty good.
