    Misc Observations:

    Had to cut quite a bit, could have avoided that by getting light racing uca's that allow for up to 4° caster. Mine maxed out at 2.75°, CMC plus some plastic.
    *Looks like I need to reshape the inner fender wall, the pinch welds are rubbing on one side....odd. *had he alignment redone, got 3.8/4.1 than bent pinch weld back and trimmed, no rubbing at flex...but havent full flexed it yet.

    Getting an oscillating vibration from the front end around 30-40mph, I suspect that's the drivers side differential bearing, ordered a ecgs bushing, installing, when time allows. * installed and gone.

    BAMF Sliders, have to buy some standoffs for the box on the drivers side/inside of frame. The bolt that mounts the slider was too long for the box to be mounted flush. Might just remove the bolt and cut it, so it fits. Also BAMF might want to consider dropping the nuts for the rear bolt and just go with a welded nut on some plate. Almost impossible to hold that sucker on the drivers side.​


    Current:
    Suspension & Fittment:
    Headstrong Offroad Bilstein Kit
    Coils: OME 2888
    UCA's: Camburg Uniball 1.25"
    Leaf Pack: Dakar (EL095R), medium, (-) on passenger, (o) on driver. the arrow indicates "fixed pivot point".
    Rear brake lines: extended.
    Poly Bushings etc.
    Spacer for taco lean installed.
    CMC fill plates. @glorifiedwelder
    Pinch weld bend over and flatten & plastic removal. It's ugly but it works.
    Alignment, 4.1/3.8 caster
    ECGS Bushing
    Rims: SCS F5, 17x8.5 4.3BS/-10mm OS.
    Tires: Falken Wildpeak AT3W, SL(4 ply) (285/70 17), they jump from 4 ply to 10 ply, wtb D-Load please.​

    Audio:
    Genuine Subaru H631SFJ101 Tweeter Kit
    Kicker 43CSC6934, 6x9, 3-way, Front Doors, use Crutchfield, that way you have adapters as well.
    Armor:
    Rock Sliders, BAMF, 20*+ Kickout
    Electrical/Lighting:
    Miscellaneous:
    SR/SR5 grill with Devil Horns
    Weathertech Floor Mats
    SDHQ Chase Rack, expensive, yes but quality is great.
    Coms:
    Yaesu FTM-400XDR/Larson 2m/70cm Antenna, APRS in the works.​


    Planned:
    Front plate bumper, so far CBI in the lead, really wanted a pelfreybuilt one but not possible...the Pelfreybuilt debacle.
    Skids (aluminum), not sure on brand yet. again, any suggestions?
    Exhaust relocate. Now where did I put those pic's.
    Reverse u-bolt mod...eventually
    On board air. (Viair 100% Duty Cycle), arrived now fabrication time.****
    Rear Diff Breather Relocate
    AC drain extension.
    Jowett Performance billet oil filter canister with fumoto valve.
    SDHQ ABS Sensor Guards, meh why not...​

    Only took 2 years...

    relay box with switches, almost expensive as spods
    20180301_173645.jpg repurposed blade fuse copper plate




    all the above even with this alignment 4.1/3.8 caster. I highly suspect the 4.3 backspace and -10mm offset. My guess is 4.5" backspace with zero offset won't rub at all( hint, hint to @SCS)

    20190110_153153.jpg One more thing off the list, actually I had the "leak" so might as well upgrade.

    Side note, bolt locations were about 3/16th of an inch too long had to drill the cab.

    I don’t however I did use loctite gasket sealant on the backside of the actual KC lights and the seal between the light and truck. The wiring was simple all black connected together the red wires from brake lights to one wire and the red wires from the bed lights to another. The bed lights are so bright I’m going to tie them into the backup lights possibly. Either that or use another set of Rigids.

    Here is a link to someone who did the install.

    did you ever wire the whites into your reverse or nah? I've got a housing coming today for my kc's. waiting on my lights then i'll get it all wired up. Thinking of hooking my whites into my reverse too but i feel like it would be a pain in the ass.

    Not yet, you could find the reverse power lines in the fuse box and jump between the fuse output of the reverse and cargo lights but then again when cargo comes on so will the backup lights unless you use a diode in the circuit to prevent power from the cargo light circuit lighting up the backup lights. Not too much of a pain, might be the next mod I do after finishing the current project.
