The hard part will be waiting for the weekend to get here...
DoorDing got his MT lift, and then let it ferment in his garage for a year before he started to install it
I got the gloves you're looking for

I've been eyeing the 2.5 setup for a while, cdc clicky just sold it for me...hopefully later this year.

at least you don't drive your truck everyday
Wife drives it to pick up little man from Preschool (4 mi round trip..lol).
The $900 is for a set of LCAs that have the BJ already pressed in. That attaches to the steering stop which bolts to the spindle.
Not even sure what install would run, but I would have the option of ust having scotty's do the install and align or drive the truck straight there after install for alignment only.. Have no idea how bad your alignment could be after you totally mess with the LCA. Will call around and see what it would cost me for a shop just to replace the ball joints..

Hey.. Why don't you get 4 ball joints and we can do both trucks at the same time!!! lol..

That will give you a better idea about uniballs, and if it's worth it to you. But if you go TC lowers, you may as we'll go TC uppers, and then full mid travel too
I know... I'm not helping
Long travel baby... true prerunner.. I can jump curbs.. lol

Not just that they are stronger, but they are easier to service yourself. Don't need a press, usually just some snap ring pliers.
Yea.. I was telling Ivan that I would have the most built prerunner (that hardly sees off-road) on the island..

I used to be a professional I carried everything from Hasselblads to 1DS mark II. Even before there was digital, I had a Canon 1n RS
The digital rebel has come a long way tho.

Hey.. Why don't you get 4 ball joints and we can do both trucks at the same time!!! lol..
If you mark your alignment as it is now, you could pull it all apart and get it pretty close going back in. Found the balljoints for $30 on amazon. Almost willing to bet you could turn that $900+ job into under $200..just have to down the truck for a day or 2.

So your saying order the ball joints, give you my LCAs, new ball joints, and $200, and I get some installed ball joints done?? Awesome.. I'll order tomorrow.. lol..

Started looking at the dirt king LCAs. Not sure about quality over TCs, but they seem to get some good approval, plus are cheaper than the TCs. I think they are a bit better looking as well.

I drive around at night with only my fog lights on cause that's all the light I need. A cop just pulled me over on the H1 by punahou cause he said my headlights are supposed to be on too. Luckily he let me go... Anybody else get hassled for just running their fogs? This is the first time in 2 years! I thought it only needed to be 2 forward facing lights. Didn't know that it mattered if it was top or bottoms. Lol

I probably won't be too far behind

$900 is a little high for new UCA's, but its in the ball park. And might could sell the old pair for $100 to someone willing to press in ball joints.

Yep it matters I've seen people get ticketed for that. Legally it has to do with the power of the light, beam pattern, and beam height. But they also have specs for how high and how low the main beams have to be from the ground.

But yeah, technically if your vehicle is equipped with low beam headlights (which are required by law) then you have to run them when it is dark enough to do so. And they always have to be 100% functional; i.s. no burnt out bulbs.
