    Chase your too popular, the pics don't work.

    How are you liking the defined kit so far?

    Upgraded the photobucket account, pics should be back up.

    Really digging the defined kit. I need to get the extra leaves that he sells to get the right ride height, but the handling so far is great. No issues with bucking at all, probably due to the plate bumper, spare tire mounted at the very edge of the truck, and the 100+ pounds of fuel and water I had in the bed.

    Your taco is coming out nice! Good to know that you like the Defined kit since I'm still debating on it. I like the spare tire carrier, I might have to borrow that idea!

    I like the tire carrier but I am going to build a swing out carrier so I can get to stuff under the roof top tent better when I have it on. Would also like the bed space when camping. Going to incorporate some sort of extra support on the base of the swing out carrier.

    Finally got around to swapping out the power steering rack and pump today, what a difference get rid of that play in the steering and to have power steering back.

    Uses stock roof rack holes. I went with 3/16th steel so it would be stable. You'll have to use a press brake to bend the steel out since the 50'' light bar is wider than the rain gutter on the truck where the stock mounting holes are found.

    Replaced the drive belt, it was damaged from user error (started truck before putting the belt back on the tensioner while replacing the power steering rack and pump)

    Short bed, full bed cage, but still hauls a full sheet of plywood.
