    So Alex, Cliff, and I went out to CA to pick up Alex's new truck and have some All-Pro front LTs install on Cliff's truck. It was a great trip because we got to visit different shops in Cali, All-Pro Off-Road, DMZ OffRoad, LightForce, and Kartek. We meet lots of great people.

    Here are some pics of our trip.

    Some pics I took for TW Live.

    Arriving in Hemet

    We had all access at All-Pro, we walked around the shop and looked at every corner of AP.

    After Kartek, we rolled over to LightForce... They just relocated their store, so there was not much to take pics of.
    [​IMG]

    here is the only pic I got from DMZ offroad.
    [​IMG]

    After visiting the shops, we went back to Kartek so Alex can buy these for his new truck.

    While at AP, we picked up some Fox Coilovers for Taylor (Masada)

    Along the way, we meet Jake (PandaJerk)
    Nice to meet you and your truck.

    Here are pics from my camera. (Post All-Pro LTs on Cliff's truck)

    That looks like a trip to remember, congrats to both of you guys on your new LT trucks. The 2nd gen looks amazing with those 35s. Who did the rear cage on the 1st Gen?

    Love Cliffs new setup. Do you know why he decided to go with the 16's instead of keeping his 17's?

    I was just curious. It looks well done and professional. What kind of suspension components is the rear using? Shocks and springs wise
