    Haha, nice. I'm trying to decide if I want to for over the extra cash for OEM or go with the Moogs I got for $70.

    Personally I would never do a v8 swap on my Tacoma, even if I won the lotto. Center mount would be nice, but way too much work and custom custom custom.
    The 9" rear and links on the other hand.......

    Funds I have...time I don't.

    JD and Cory both have Moogs and have since they did LT, both beat the shit out of their trucks and never had a problem. Save your cash.

    I think you need a new front kit with more travel to match the links then, or do a A Short Course Link/Rock Crawling Cross 21~" travel range

    Well...just send it away :cool: No one said to actually build it yourself!

    Sure. Bring it on over. :D
    I was happy with my Hobart. It did the job and did it well. The only tricky time I had with it was some of the sheet metal skinning where I wished I had move voltage flexibility. In the end it really didn't matter (from a looks perspective) because all the sheet metal joints got seam sealer over the top so most the welds are hidden.

    Yep.
