    I would 100% travel through the Beartooth’s if you are in the area.

    Krylon Satin White did decently on my white bumper. That said though... every dead bug or spec of dirt showed on that bumper really bad.

    Kind of thinking I'm best off going black this time. And my skid plates need a sanding and repainting. Those I should probably just rattle can black though.

    Yeah Beartooth Pass never opens until Memorial Day...if they are lucky. Usually snows at least one or two times in June and sometimes in July/August but usually only closed for a few hours if that's the case during that time of year. After August...never know. Could shut down any day depending on the snow.

    Any good window tint places in Bozeman? Front windows not being tinted is driving me crazy.

    What sized tires are you running? Did you have to trim that front bumper too fit?

    285/75r17 for the front bumper just had to trim it a little bit and move the fender liner foward. I had to chop the cab mount and will be hammering down the pinch weld seem because they currently rub on that as well.

    Howdy folks, I need to get my passenger side front wheel bearing replaced and am looking to get one of these clamshell bushings put in to replace my needle bearing (https://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-8536125-toyota-8-clamshell-bushing-eliminates-needle-bearing.html). I'm located in Missoula and have an appointment set up with Master Technician Inc. just off of Higgins since they're heartily endorsed but I was wondering if you guys had any other recommendations? The wheel bearing job doesn't seem too tricky since we can get them pre-assembled but I'm sure the clamshell bushing would be a more involved process.

    I put my bushing in with a 3/4 drive socket and extension that was the right size. It's not rocket science. I do have the removal tool I'm In Helena so that doesn't help you much.

    Precision Window Tinting in 4 Corners is great. Did the front windows on my truck, and I believe he does most of the work for Ressler.

    Anyone have recent beta on the Kooc?

    I haven’t been out there for over 12 years, and it’s usually in around now, but water levels on the middle fork (Quinn’s) and Flathead (Perma) were higher than I’ve seen in a long time!

    Billings area exhaust shops?

    I bought some URD equal length headers recently and assumed any exhaust shop would install and I’d just sign off on something acknowledging that I knew it wasn’t officially street legal due to the front cats being deleted.

    Well I’m a couple of exhaust shops in now and they’re saying they won’t touch it.

    Who has anyone used here recently that does good work? I’d consider coming to Bozeman too, I’m there often and have family there, I’d just prefer to be able to get it done in Billings.
