Fuck ZZR lol. I gave him one last shot like two months ago...asked him to weld together a BAMF shock tower kit...and 'said' I wanted him to do the fab work to the truck...he sat on the kit for a month...told me it was done and ready for install...I kept asking for pic's of the finished towers...he kept asking why and then just not responding...I finally drove down to pick up the finished kits and was just gonna pay the difference(BAMF kit welded vs. unwelded) he literally avoided me at his own house for like 20 minutes and then when I finally cornered him asking for the kits he gets super pissy and basically throws my backpack(with the untouched kit) at me and says goodbye. He was angry because I hadn't payed him at all...I just kept asking him what he wanted to be paid for...for storing some metal lol??? Then he kept insisting he could weld up the kit in 30-45 minutes...

My favorite line was when I said "Zip, what have you done so far" "I've almost got it tacked up"..."Wait, you have it tacked or you don't?"..."Well, almost, it'll only take me like half an hour to get it all done"...

Buh-bye...I realize he's a shitty garage fab, but hey...I try to support local fabricators. But fuck man, he just digs himself a hole endlessly.

Haha with a new rear bumper, a spare, and a jack I think the bypasses will compress
Edit: oh wait let me specify the rear bypasses I now have 2 sets

A little late in getting this done and sorry I can't seem to be able to figure out how to embed but 6 months later here's a little video put together from our first race at the HDRA South Point race in January. Ended up moving from DC to England about 60 days after the race so have been a bit tied up trying to get through all that but hope to get back to the truck one more time this year.

Huge thanks to Matt at MCM Fab for building an amazing front kit that took everything we could throw at it without missing a beat. I sold the Camburg LT kit off my truck and replaced it with Matt's Tacoma Race Kit and I couldn't be happier!

Yep, get 2 equally BMFH & "ping" it off , hitting it on 2 sides w/2 hammers at the same time will free it from spindle (if thats where its stuck)
