    Well, this is this the first time I've posted a build thread for all the upgrades I've done on a vehicle but figured it is an easy place to list and archive what I've done.

    My ride is a 2013 Magnetic Grey Double Cab Long Bed.

    To help with heat reduction, decided to tint the rear windows and back glass with 35% tint. Could have gone darker but wanted a decent blend with the 20% already on the front.

    Looks great, How's the quality and where did you get it? If you don't mind me asking.

    Right on, thats the one I was looking at. I saw it came with extra screws, washers, etc as well. Happy to hear it's good quality. I'll definitely be grabbing one of those. The last one I bought cracked, suddenly clouded out and the customer service is from hell. Really frustrating :facepalm:

    Yeah, that sucks. It came with extra stuff and two types of screws. I ended up using the screws that looked like regular wood screws. The machined screw wouldn't work with the factory plastic hole thingy.

    Install my TUFSKINZ accents and while I was at it, I changed my shifter indicator light to a Blue LED version. Lift tomorrow :)!

    Any rub or issues with this setup? I have a similar lift and just ordered this same tire today.

    Yes, at almost full lock you’ll rub the UCA on the opposite side from where you’re turning. Mud flaps are fine except small ones in front of the tires.

    Installed a set of 4 bora .75 spacers, it fixed the rubbing issue.
