    Right on! Too bad you weren't here in Hawaii (or I was in arizona) i would've jumped at the chance to learn and help you install some spindles.. and by help i mean fetch tools haha. Hopefully i can get this shipping to hawaii thing straightened out that way i can put some spindles on too. I bet you cant wait to get them on..

    id prefer to do it with someone rather than a shop do it. id really like to get some knowledge and experience with something like this. anyone that might have installed these have pictures that they might be able to do a write up for me in the next couple days??

    very nice...i wish there was a cheap-ish and easy way to get that much lift for a 4x4...but im just biding my time and saving my dime till i can get some fox coilovers :D

    post up pics and progress when you do get them installed...remember, it only take like 1 min to take a pic of each stage but it will help many a fellow taco owner that wants to do the same thing...Write-Ups are the shizzz

    GL!!!

    I said that at one point in time. I think we all know the rest of the story...

    If he comes up here, have him call or text me and I'll see if I can meet up and try not to fuck things up :D (Actually I think there's a mod day coming up here soon. He's going to give me the details when he finds out...)

    I'm sure someone can help you sooner or later. I would, but you'd be better off trying it without me :D Cliff said that this weekend the details will be figured out for the next mod day. So you can ask him or I can let you know.
