    I am going to try to throw progress pictures in this post. It's going to be as chronological as possible

    First real things i did to the truck were tint the front windows and get a bed cover. If you have not tinted your windows I highly recommend it. I got a solar tint that really cut down on the sun beating through!
    0629151834.jpg

    Next upgrade was new wheels, Tires, Shocks and AAL (all pictured here). These wheels were 17" 4runner wheels. They fit okay but they were really too narrow for the 285/70/17 tires.
    Also in this picture I have the 5100's at full lift on stock springs. It was doable but not a very nice ride. I soon got the OME885 springs and dropped the 5100's back to 0. Much better ride and road handling.
    0331181933.jpg

    Time to post a few more upgrades in this process.

    Here is my installation of the sweet JBA UCAs

    New11421B00-CF53-453B-AED1-19751780CD13.jpg

    Also installed the Hypertech Speedo Calibrator4264F687-90D5-485B-B4F8-F77205D935A6.jpg

    Had to pull part of the dash out to access the back of the instrument panel.
    0EEAD95C-5436-4108-AE77-2A9700B9FEA2.jpg

    Then I left the USB cable attached and hidden here for future modification. Maybe 35s?

    Alrighty! Got another new upgrade! Custom fabbed rock sliders courtesy of @Bigdaddy4760

    That's all I have time for today...Stay tuned...

    This area will be dedicated to my Wife's 2020 Subaru Ascent purchased on 9.12.19 with a whole 6 miles on it!

    Here’s her old one and new one side by side...ABA4199D-1773-4F84-8679-44D1B7C03EA6.jpg

    Need to install a class 3 trailer hitch as the dealership wanted way too much to install one. This thing can tow up to 5k pounds. Here’s one I’m looking at purchasing.
