    Bump stops are just an air shock. You can adjust pressure significantly to "tune" the harshness and keep the function of the shock. 150-200 PSI is what comes standard for most manufacturers but I've seen as low as 50-100psi for certain applications.

    I made mine out of that stuff 4 years ago and it's held up like a champ with no dry rotting whatsoever.

    I’m due for a brake fluid flush — first one since my ownership.
    Any special notes for these trucks, how much fluid should I expect to replace, good brand for fluid?
    I have a TRD Sport, so no electric power help.

    I am comfortable with the process on motorcycles and MTB, but figured I’d ask.

    So far I know start at passenger rear > driver rear > passenger front > driver front.
    Also can probably get my Mother to help work the pedal.

    I use prestone dot 4 and just change it every year to keep it free of moisture, it has good dry and wet temps and cheap enough that there's no excuse to stay on top of it every year or two. I think annual is excessive but I still do it. Depending on how dirty it is, I would just buy a 2 or 3 12oz bottles.

    I just do the gravity bleed method so I don't have to annoy the wife.

    and the toyota adapter. It takes about a quart of fluid for the system.

    I'd wait you need to check for safety margin on co shafts if it ends up limiting travel.
