    Got the Toytec ULK in the mail on Monday and LR UCAs during the last Toytec group buy. I'll try to remember the camera before I head to the shop and start taking stuff apart :p
    Will be doing it alone, with a couple of numbers on speed dial if I get stuck, and will have some pics posted by Saturday evening if everything goes well. This will be the first time I've ever done any suspension work.

    You might want to call a friend over just for the extra set of hands and for the safty factor. I'm not doubting your abilities by any means, but some parts of that job just require 4 hands....

    Good luck and post pics!

    I forgot to start taking pictures until we were putting everything together. Took us 6 hours total, luckily there were no difficulties.
    It has the 16" rims with 265/75/r16 Nitto Terra Grapplers. They will be staying on there until they wear out :)
    Next thing to add are some sliders. Looking at the Stubbs HD-SKO Sliders. Bumper probably won't happen until the end of the year.

    Looks nice. What do you have in the rear and what do you have the front set at? How much lift overall?

    I got just a little under 3" in the front, can't remember what the hell I did with the measurements, but it was very close to 3".
    The rear has the 2", non-tsb aal. There are a couple of sand bags and the old suspension in the back, which I am blaming the lean on. But I like it the way it is.
    Rides smooth as hell offroad.
