    Wowza! What did It take to bend them back out? Wouldn't that twist the frame and drop the engine?

    I spent all day trying to install a set of DTLT headers. I tried everything. I couldnt get the headers in place even after removing all the studs. I lifted up the motor installed the headers and tried to lower the motor back into place and the headers just supported the motor on the buckets.

    I threw them in the trash after that. Put my stock ones back in. Like 05TacoRunner, I had to remove all my header studs to take the headers off.

    Lookin' good :)

    I'm guessing that fits a 12" coilover and bypass? How high up does the bump stick up? Any issues with the hood?

    what all did you have to relocate that sat on the fender well?

    I wonder if you can fit them with your extra tubing you added. URD's website says they won't fit with the TC shock tower gussets.

    Dang it, I NEED a set of coil buckets cut off at the frame! Wouldn't have thought it mattered when we tossed ours a year and a half ago or whatever.

    I don't think his would've worked though. We need the portion with that tube in it I think. Basically we need some that are still almost 100% in tact and then I'll cut them down to what we need from there.

    Basically, that tube that's shown there is what we need for our case but I'm not sure how to weasel that thing into place. Will see once I get one in my hands though what it's going to take.
