    Thanks for all the welcomes!

    @jib bandits, the rack hasn't come loose yet. I used to check the Allen bolts once a month or so, and the most I've been able to crank them down was a 1/4 turn. Last time I checked them, I used some blue loctite on the threads to snug them up...haven't loosened since then. I have a giant u-bolt coming up from underneath to secure the spare tire to the rack. The spread on the u-bolt is wide enough to pop through opposite lug holes on the spare, so that's definitely not going anywhere.

    Sweet ride! How are you liking your suspension? I'm in the market, and that setup is #1 on my list.

    @trowbocop I love it so far. I talked to a couple guys that have the same product before I spent the $$ and they had nothing bad to say. I was skeptical about the single AAL giving me the lift I wanted in the rear, so when we installed it, we took the bottom leaf (the big one that curves downward) and flipped it to curve upwards. When my truck came down off the lift, it sat exactly level. The kit gave me enough to clear 285/75 tires, which was the goal. Ride quality is 100% better than my stock setup which had 140k on it.

    I don't plan on re-gearing, hopefully I won't have to. Should have the nitto's by the end of the month. We'll see how she goes from there. I'll say this now- "once I get the bigger tires, I'm done spending $$ on her for a while" but I think we all know how that goes, don't we...?
