Dmaxstore 2008 Kodiak Build Started

After a couple weeks of looking for a nice 4X Kodiak we have a new to us 2008 fully loaded Project truck in the driveway.
This rig has a full Laredo conversion, Triple air ride, and only 27k miles.
We would appreciate any input as we begin to transform this truck into something really cool.

Hauler bed and steps are for Sale if anyone is interested !

Axletech conversion is what i really want to see.

Are you guys going to put some big power in it or just normal tow tune?

Does the air ride cab make a difference?

I like the Caddy headlights I saw on a thread here.
Bigger tires but I don't like super singles
Nice paint or wrap
Then drop it off at my house. Thank you in advance!!!
Seriously...Post lots of pics

Do you know if these steps would fit on a 2006? I would be interested in them.

Picked up a Monroe composite bed today. Same as the factory option.
Ordered Stazworks 20x12 singles for all corners and some 40-15.5" Toyo MTs.
Tahoe headlights were delivered today and that conversion will start in a week or 2.
I'm going to order some Deaver Front springs and Fox or King shocks.
Any idea on a good way to bring up the rear and improve the ride? I was thinking about calling Kelderman ?

Sad to see you go with that bed. I was never a fan of those when Chevy or Monroe did them. Also they look too dated now IMO. The newer steel beds don't crack and just look better. Also you can match the body lines easy with 2 van door skins if that really bothered you. Just my opinion, take it for what it is

I called around to truck body builders in our area and was looking for 2 beds to make my stretched bed and found new take offs for $900 dually beds. 2016-2017 models.

Ya I paid $500 with bumper for a 2010 bed. I do keep playing with the idea of getting a new style. The lines just look better
