    So, I was traveling to Roy New Mexico in early March...Smarch...(stupid Smarch)... and there were 55mph winds with high gusts. My trailer blew over, swung around the side of my Tacoma and the safety chains (there's some irony) swung the truck almost 180 degrees and it rolled when the tires hooked up after sliding...

    SO, insurance was super cool, let me take most of my old mods off the truck before it was scrapped, paid out well, and I flew to MO to buy a new to me white 2012 DBCB TX Pro.

    I've always wanted the white one and I've got a bug for nostalgia so...

    Great looking truck!

    But the real reason for me commenting is your avatar. I haven't thought about that damn skiing game in ages. I used to love that game, even though I sucked at it.

    Looks great. Makes me wish i would have stayed stock front bumper and the winch like you did. Always liked that stock front end.

    Nice build and the graphics look great! I run TC UCA and love mine...what do you hate about them? I came from stock, LR, and icon tubular before sticking with the TC arms for a couple years now. And are you really sure your build is completely “done”? Thanks!

    1st off, your truck looks real real nice!

    This is kinda funny, I am from NM and currently live in MO haha. Did you check the frame for rust when you bought the truck? After witnessing how crazy it snowed and how much salt was used last winter, I am really worried about how the frame on the 12-15 can hold up. I am planning to find a 15 back in NM by the end of this year cuz it barely snows there so I wouldn't have to worry about the rust.

    The bearings are essentially being loaded incorrectly in the control arms. I get why they chose them but icon has a new patent on a better shoulder socket style bearing. The urethane top hats are toleranced poorly as well and make too much noise at the specified bolt torque. IDK. They are required for the lift but don't compare to the refinement of well engineered stock parts
