    Sounds like you made good time. I'm a very novice welder. More of a weld grinder. Built my own cat-back exhaust, tool bed mounts, ...basic stuff. Cheap 120V harbor freight welder. I'd need to practice on similar gauged metal to verify I can get enough penetration.

    I was concerned that the placement would be tricky so that's good to hear.

    The tricky part about welding this kit is that your welding 1/4in to about 12 gauge steel. If your not careful you will just blow holes in the frame, or you wont get enough penetration. My welds arent perfect, but im happy with how mine came out.

    Interesting that you are still running it at neutral, does the top not have that much effect if the lower is pushed all the way forward already? My initial though was you would want to run both the upper and lower all the way forward, but I guess that would make your castor angle mega shit, like pushing back toward zero.

    Installing my SPCs today as the JBA HC are not working out and im rubbing like shit to correct camber, input would be greatly appreciated.

    **EDIT** wow, just now seeing the taco tabs... I need for 3rd gen. That's tits.

    Moving them forward 1 position did gain more clearance but it put my caster around 1-2 degrees. I opted for better caster and more hammer. I bottom out on my super bumps regularly and no rubbing.

    I got my 35 inch spare in. Is the exhaust to close?

    Probably okay. About where mine is but I cut it more parallel with the ground. Just keep an eye on it and see if it melts.

    How the heck did you get that to work?
    Even with the high clearance bumper I am not able to get a 34" to work. Have you tested it yet? How close is the diff when articulating?

    I would want a metal shield over the tire near the exhaust exit.

    Trimmed the fenders all around, aggressive CMC, hammered the pinchweld, around 3” of lift and I’ll be installing 315s this week. Please let them fit :fingerscrossed:
