Yeah I clicked it after the fact. The Toy Crawlers I was referring is a now defunct company in Colorado where I got my ARB used for $400. Nice club by the way.

Ha. I am just going to kidnap Noah and hang him upside down so his pockets empty of all that cash he has. Thanks for the props. It is going to be funny to see how long it takes for others to find it. At some point I will change the link name but for now it is fun.

Its a good addition to TW haha. You added a top plate to your CO's? I was thinking I will have to adjust mine up once it starts sagging after we install the bumper and winch.

Yeah I was already adjusted pretty high from the ARB. So instead of a harsher ride I added the top plate. You will probably need to adjust them after it settles and get a new alignment.

Remind me to measure your truck before we start next weekend.
