    I think we've had this discussion before but what dashcam are people running? Ive had an increasing amount of incidents lately where people cut me off and then do absurd things like slam on the brakes, flip me off, speed up and slow down and change lanes all over the road etc. and then proceed to whip out their phones while driving and film me, as if I was the one in the wrong. I guess I need to arm myself in more ways. The days of he-said she-said are over. Its gotta be on video.

    i have run 2 of these for a while. it's missing some of the wifi connectivity but the sensor is really good.
    plus it uses a Capacitor instead of a battery. Do not buy a battery version or it will fail because of the valley heat. Looks like they have some 4k versions out now and dual camera. do not buy anything 720p as you can't get a license plate at all.

    Knocked this out today. P320 filler plate for Holosun 407k. 416 Stainless

    Picked up the optic on Wednesday. Modeled the plate Thursday. Programmed it yesterday. Machined this morning.

    Came out pretty damn good for a one off. Fitment was perfect right out of the machine. Dropped right in place and contours matched. Impressed with myself.. Definitely only one of these out there! Lol

    Just cut down my overloads to install for an extra 1/2" of lift in the rear. Forgot how much of a PITA that is. Also my dumbass forgot to put on ear protection until the last of 4 cuts and now my head hurts. :facepalm:

    Also going to try to pull my coilovers halfway out and see if I can adjust them one last time before taking it to a shop this week.

    So yesterday I spent 6 hours working on the front end. I got both coilovers raised an additional 3/4" worth on the threads which is about 1 1/2" (of lift) higher than it was. The driver side still had some serious Taco lean though. Then today I went to autozone and grabbed one of those sketchy AF spring compressors. Surprisingly I was able to squeeze it into the driver side King coil and compress it enough to get another 3 turns which equates to a little over 1/2" of extra height. I only stopped because I broke the adjustment wrench. There is still lean but my ground to fender measurements L to R are 1/4" from each other so I think Im just going to be happy with that, get an alignment and see if it settles more before spending anymore time on it.

    I also installed Wheelers superbumps in front, breaking the driver side nut off the frame removing the stock bump so that was a trip to ace to get a nylock nut and then an hour of finagling with a wobble socket inside the frame rail to get the damn thing tight. Then I moved to the back and installed my superbumps and cut down overload leafs for an additional 1/2" of lift. My rear fender height is now only 1/2" lower than when I was on 5100s/OMEs/315s but the front is still 1 1/2" lower so there is a lot more it could go up if I wanted to. Also, I need way longer rear shocks hahaha. These are fine for stock height or small lift but they are going to severely limit down travel and now with superbumps I can run a longer shock without worry about topping them out.

    Driver side has 1 3/16" of thread showing. Passenger has 13/16" showing. So thats 3/8" higher on the driver side and it still sits 1/4" lower at the ground to fender measurement.

    Front superbump installed. Picture is at ride height.

    Rear superbumps with additional cut down leaf. I did not cut the u-bolts down because they are less intrusive with the additional leaf installed. The bumps will have to compress over 2", almost completely flat to their mount for the u-bolts to hit the frame. If they still hit Ill trim them later.

    Time for a new coilover wrench, already.

    Trim those u-bolts. The superbumps will compress almost to flat on a hard hit. Just cut them in place on the truck so you don’t have to worry about it.

    I know I know, I was just so sick of the cutoff wheel after cutting down the leafs that I didnt want to fire it up again.
