    I have the Cobra 29lx but don't have any photos cause I haven't permanently mounted it yet. I'm still trying to figure out where I want it. So for the time being I just used some 3M velcro and have it on the passenger side of the middle console.

    No I'm still using stock mounts and I'm using all but about .5''-1'' of my shock stroke so I currently have no need to run them. I just have more droop then bump right now, which is basically what I wanted. In the future I will change my shock mount locations whether it be hoops or the bucket but when I do that I plan on stepping up to a 12'' shock, or if I can possibly squeeze it in, a 14''. might have to cut the bed a tad for the 14'' though...We'll see.

    No problem. Yeah I picked up the HC bumper on sunday. Gotta do some major garage clean up before I can install it though. Cutting into my bedsides is scaring the shit out of me now that I actually have the bumper and need to do it. HAHA :eek:

    How difficult was the crossover pipe mod? I need to have mine done, but I'm having trouble finding a shop to do it. Third skid is collecting dust in my garage until I can get the pipe modified.

    I just took it to a shop in town, but the guy said it was pretty easy. Left it there for most of the day when I was at work so he could just work on it in his free time. He had to use new pipe since the OEM pipe is double layered (don't know what its really called but it's a pipe in pipe). then I just installed the heat shield on the opposite side of the bracket to give it a little more clearance and called it a day. No rattles or problems yet. There is plenty of room under there, I have no clue why Toyota didn't do this in the first place! :notsure:
