    Looks rad, man! Truck looks super composed and thought-out. Making sure I'm following you correctly on how you fixed the rear end, you adjusted the mounting points on the rear JD setup? Same shackle length and springs? Seeing it all come together makes me want to measure where mine are at and start looking into the geometry.

    Thank you!

    And yes, I relocated the front hangers/made my own rear hangers. Mounting points are drastically different now. Still on H70HD’s

    As a rough estimate how long would you expect a a shop to take to do a 3 link back half? Nothing too crazy.

    Browsing Rockauto. Curious if these Tundra CVs would work fine out of the box for LT without trimming. Anyone have any experience with these?

    smashed this, broke that, covered it up with tape and paint
    It can be A WHILE
    But my best advice
    Do your due diligence on shops and if you have any feelings of uncertainty with them
    Trust that feeling
    It’s almost always the right one.
    Try to use someone who you have second hand experience or knowledge of (meaning someone YOU KNOW has had success with said shop)

    Curious to know what you guys are running for valving on front coilovers and bypasses with Fox shocks on 3.5" LT kits.

    Picked up a set of freshly rebuilt King 3.0 IBP coilovers with finned resi’s and adjusters for 2k for the raptor. Well, pending actually. They’re still at king getting refreshed but the second they’re done they’re on the way to me. I found out the raptor has super heavy aftermarket springs on the front, paired with blown 145k mile shocks explains why this thing bounces off the ground when it hits dirt.

    need to get deavers are 3.0 bypasses for the rear still but one step at a time. Raptor Tax is real af.

    The Raptor front IBP's are pretty dialed, and when paired with Deavers in the rear with 12" bypasses its a decent ride

    But don't be like this one customer I have with his 4th Gen.....
    This is not a good Combo.. when you see it

    If back halving, you would be crazy to not go to a cell and 4 link. Far too many perks to 4 link over 3.

    honestly man, if you're back halving, you should be 4 linking. 3 link has a ton of compromises just to keep a stock gas tank. If you're set on 3 link, then don't bother with a back half.

    Going to depend on if you have all the parts ( shocks, links, Hiems, etc) or all the money for all the shop to order the parts, tubing, labor etc.
    Rest of the truck caged already?
    My advice keep the bed so you can still do truck stuff.

    Snow is still not melted enough for them to open up the gates here yet. I saw a nice lil’ ramp rock outside a gate I was checking and realized I hadn’t really had a chance to check my clearance with the new SUA changes.

    I wasn’t aired down but safe to say my plan of sticking with stock bedsides might not be long for this life. Plenty of travel left and absolutely no fender left.
