    This is my flag mount for whoever was asking.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks guys...here's a little update on what i did yesterday
    went to tractor supply and got one of those 6x8 rubber bed mats and went to town..covered the bed, tail gate, and I'm working on covering up the back plastic sides of the interior seats. I use those a lot and shit just glides across the plastic backing when turning.

    Also i was towing my trailer out to the farm w/ stock leafs and some MAJOR SAGGING was going on so ill be getting the rear done suspension wise (I'm thinking AP expedition leaf w/ fox) still deciding on what kit for the front or whether to go long travel or not..decisions decisions..

    Well it's been a long day but I really wanted it done right so no regrets.

    started out with the fiberglass 3" rise and 2.5" flare. The fitment wasn't bad but now all I need is a bumper and to order some color matched paint..$$$

    On to the rear suspension, fun and pretty easy install. so far rides stiff w/o the weight in the back but it has improved handling and the overall feel of the truck..can't wait to try it offroad.:D

    leafs finally showed up..very heavy, poor fedex guy
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    yay, one side done
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    old vs new
    [​IMG]

    My dad had some time to come over and help put in the other side and had some good ideas on how to put in the bump stop instead of welding as I didn't get the timbrens but I'll prob be getting the fox bumps put in later on.

    [​IMG]

    Here's the bump stop situation on the flip kit and how it was done.

    [​IMG]

    Brake lines would have been easy but they were so tight that they even started to round off with a flare wrench..(pic of a flare wrench below)
    [​IMG]
    finally removed it and installed the new. ended up using vise-grips for removal.
    [​IMG]

    and this is it complete

    Said goodbye to the URD and hello to the TRD 2.0 intake..Now that I have had both of the top intakes I would say they are about even on performance..The URD might have been a bit more powerful but for sure not water proof for the trails..however it is cheaper, sounds meaner and if you don't plan on taking your truck through water for sure the way to go. The vacuum gauge that tells you when to service the filter is cool on the TRD but I don't think I really need that.

    Also took the trailer to the farm the other day and the ride was MUCH better then before..(comparison pic in previous post)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then did some backyard off roading and was very impressed with the flex but then again i went from stock leafs to the full kit so I'm sure I'd be impressed.

    Thanks man, the Mid travel is kickass and is a way smother ride, however on the front I'm planning on doing the Total Chaos FJ 2" long travel kit opposed to the 3.5 just so I can still fit on tight trails and keep it somewhat stock looking. Also went with the expedition leafs on the rear bc I sometimes tow a lot and hope to fill it with lots of trail gear when it's finished up..Next mod will probably be a tranny cooler tho since I didn't get the tow package.:(
