    Readin ur threads, learning ur shit
    subbed.

    How long can you edit after you post on TW? the lack of spaces in the OP hurts me when I read it.

    Looks like a beefy ass kit and those are some long travel numbers. I hope it works out.

    I was going to try to go meet with OP last week but my rewiring of truck is taking 10X as long as planned. I am staying a few miles frm him all next week so I will be stopping in and discussing putting kit on my truck at that time.

    Ill keep everybody updated and see if we can get some more pics and such of it.

    Joel,

    Thanks for your reply's. im so stoked with how this kit turned out and i cant wait to get to the desert to try it out, im just so busy prototyping a few other kits for toyota's. I have some killer ideas to take the toyota's by storm. Ill have pics soon with it on a frame and mounted up. Keep checking back.

    Any chance of developing a 2nd gen 5 lug lift spindle like Fabtech has for 1st gen 5 lugs?

    Any plans for upgrades on the steering rack, that is also a pretty weak point on these trucks
