notice the missing rear slider...



and now notice the new "window"

story behind this, girlfriend drove me and some friends to a party in my truck and was not drinking. When we were leaving she realized that the keys were locked in the truck.
So instead of calling a locksmith, in our drunken state of mind we tried to slide the rear slider open to crawl in. Using a knife we got through the seal and almost unlatched it and then it shattered everywhere...

So now the whole rear window has to be replaced for around $900

Should still be able to purchase my lift in the next couple weeks though

Had a great time at the Steven Toyota and Scion show and tell event.
Got the lift installed while I was there with help from WildcatTaco and lexmedic157 and others whose username I do not know

Best pic i have of the before:


On the lift:


After:



Got it aligned there too but they didn't get it right, gonna go to firestone this week to get it done again. Other than that, it rides really well.

Looking at these to fix my alignment issues, anyone know about these? I would rather get these than spend a lot more for uniball when i don't need it. Thanks
