    Good luck man. Not to hard of an install, just getting the long bolt in and out is kind of a PITA.

    The long bolt is the worst part , we used some water pump pliers wrapped with a towel and folded the fender toward the tire enough to wiggle the bolt out into the engine bay .

    Be careful of the fuel and air conditioning lines that are inside the fender behind this location .

    It is pretty easy. Let me know if you need any help and I can try to make it out. I have to work swing shit tomorrow night. When I did mine on my 4runner I had to take out the battery in order to get the bolt out through the hood.

    Thanks Jacob i just finished was very easy ,,i think the hardest part was lugging my rims and tire around,,damn things are heavy...on another not the light racing ones are nice and beefy and the stock feels light and cheap ,,,now time to get a alignment :cool: no pics because there are many good write ups on the install ..Also don't buy them from Toytec Fat bobs has a way better price and customer service just call them for the better price...

    I was wondering if and when you were going to get some ucas after I saw your lift at the mod day. The truck looks great. How did the alignment go?
