    Easier, more like night and day. Plus had I kept the Taco, I was gonna change the uniballs of the UCAs to stainless ones, mine were pitting after only 1.5 years of use and proper maintenance

    I'm just south of Heights. Like I said, I don't really have room or the tools to efficiently get this work done. Hopefully we can set up a mod day and someone with a good size driveway can provide a place. I'm still waiting to purchase all my hardware though.

    I'd be willing to help on a mod day. Have an impact wrench with deep sockets and a whole slew of other tools that will come in handy.

    All you need is a grinder with cut off wheel.

    Negative, grinders kill batteries. Need a corded one so we can make Kase's truck a convertible.

    Haha, I like this answer...

    As an update, I've got my lift delivered! How does August 25th work for everyone/anyone wanting to have a mod day? Trying to get this work done before football season, and I've got too much crap going on until then. I haven't even had time to swap out my brake lines...

    Post up if this date is good for you guys, and a list of what you're wanting to with your truck. My list is below, and not sure if we can get it all done, but it's at least the goal. Any ideas for where we can meet up?

    TDunc to do:
    • Drill holes into frame to complete BAMF Slider installation - 3 per side
    • Remove guide brackets from spare tire "compartment" to accommodate larger tires (285/75/16)
    • Install BAMF Cab Mount Chop plates
    • Install Lift (OME 3" 885, Dakar, & LR UCA)
    • Install extended rear SS brake lines

    As long as work doesn't interfere, I can be of assistance.
