    Hasn't gotten to us yet but there is a good chance we'll get to deal with the mess of cleaning up the ash in the next couple days.

    Welcome. I am also from Anchorage and just joined today.

    I have an 09 Access Cab SR5 4-cyl with 5-speed manual 4x4. Sorry, no pics yet.

    In the next couple of weeks, I will be getting a shell, nerf bars, hood protector, and wind deflectors. I should get some pics up after that.

    Uh oh sounds like a Race!!!;) Not many people are cool enough for 4cyl's lol. A shell is probably in my trucks future as well. spent alot of nights in the bed of my old truck it would get mighty cold and wet in my new one.

    I was going to say that you'll have a little bit of trouble getting any meets together with fellow enthusiasts, but it looks like we already have the makings of an Alaska chapter. :D
    You guys can get together to drink beer and ride wild caribou. At least, that's what I would do.

    I noticed that your mods has a "leveling kit" listed on it. Excuse my ignorance, but what is a leveling kit. I am assuming this gets rid of the nose-down appearance.

    3 inch lift in the front and 1 inch in the rear so just a small lift kit that levels it out. They are cheap and easy to install. mine has about 8k miles on it so far with no complaints and it has ben in for 2 oil changes since and the dealer has said nothing about it.
