    New tie rod ends / heims ordered. $120 bucks from All Pro. Expensive, but they're chromoly and finding the right ones that allow the suspension to fully droop out has been difficult, so I bit the bullet and bought ones that I know will work.

    Roof top tent has shipped

    I just like the little retaining straps so when you air down you don't have to carry them around or worry about losing them.

    Poly had a 10% sale going on, so I picked up new coil springs (18'' 650 pound Eibach springs), TC LCA alignment tabs and TC UCA gussets, a Y-strap for the new spare tire carrier, some bushings for the new spare tire carrier, and some 1.5'' hub centric wheel spacers for the rear axle.

    Just have some electrical stuff left to pick up (ottratw switches, 2/0 wire for the winch, blue sea fuse block, and a circuit breaker).

    Ordered five custom switches from TTORA - "Roof Light Bar", "Bumper Light Bar", "Back Up Light", "ABS Disable", and "Air Compressor".

    All that is left now is some 2/0 gauge wire for the rear mount winch and an auxiliary fuse block.

    Couple more weeks and I'll be home to start the process of sorting through all the stuff I've bought and had mailed home since I've been gone; then comes the fab and install work.

    Looking to be done with all major projects by mid-August for a Moab trip.

    About two hours once you get the bumper off.

    Been back for about a week now and have started spinning wrenches on the truck. Here are some of the things that have have been completed or are in progress:

    Here are some comparison pictures for the light bars that I purchased through the OKLEDlightbars group buy here on TW.

    First picture is factory low beams:

    [​IMG]

    Factory high beams:

    20'' Combo beam LED light bar on bumper:

    [​IMG]

    50'' Combo beam LED light bar on roof + the 20'' on the bumper:

    [​IMG]

    The mounts on the bumper are steel tabs and work great. The roof mounts I cut and bent out of aluminum. I am replacing them with steel due to the flex in the aluminum.
