    IMunsolicitedO powder coat can be so hit or miss, depending on who does it. I would do some research on whoever you decide to have coat it. I’ve seen so many bumpers start peeling and rusting after only 2 years.

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    Thanks for the info. There's a shop up here that I was referred to by the local Line-X dealer and Trick Trucks that is supposed to be pretty good. They do in house sandblasting, powder coat primer, and will color match the outer coat. Another friend here said their shop refers to them as well. I haven't talked to them yet, but they seem to have a good reputation. And I may just order if finished and save the hassle.

    If that were an affordable option for me right now, I would pursue that instead of modding up the daily driver. But I would imagine that would be a $20k price tag, and I don't need it that badly.

    Toyota did this or a custom shop selling their setup? We all know how our trucks can be mod'd to fit any of our needs, but I don't see how this is different from anyone building an overland rig. I guess I'm not seeing connection between the very sparse article and the setup/title. Seems like click bait for more numbers. lol

    With as many bicyclists in here I'm sure someone in here has a high pressure gauge. I have one for my mountain bike shocks that reads up to 300PSI you're welcome to borrow. The downside to mine is it's a manual attachment so you have to screw it onto the valve.

    Edit: but hell you don't even need it anymore now that you've fixed the problem. Perhaps next time I should read through all the comments before posting!

    No worries, maybe I should do some basic troubleshooting before posting:rofl:

    Thanks for the offer though.

    It's great this time of year to be out in the woods with all the leaves down. We always have a mom and a couple cubs where I hunt, so it's always fun to see them come by the stand. I've taken one down so far, but passed up probably 6 because they look so small.....or is my vision just going to crap!
    Also, I watched a coyote napping on the hill in front of me and it was by itself...very handsome and behaved like a pet would....I couldn't shoot it. It was peaceful and enjoying the sun.

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    Tim, I've used American Stripping Co. (ascoweb.com) quite a bit. A friend used to work there for years and the work has always been good. ASCO refurbishes multi-million dollar sculptures, and other delicate items of historic and national interest. Just an option. NV coatings I've always heard really good things about as well.

    The coyotes have been very active the last couple weeks. Last time I got out hunting i had 1 cruise by me mid morning.

    Hire someone whose sole purpose in life is to get out and install them while you sit in the heat and drink coffee. Hahaha. My only experience with them was working in WV on cell tower roads. They work great, but are a bitch to install. The tractor supply ones were anyway.

    Yeah they all pretty much suck to install but Tractor Supply was a good set for my 2nd gen. Definitely find some dirt to install them a few times before you need them if you haven't before... First time I needed them took me damn near half an hour to install and get tightened up and it fucking sucks doing that when it's coming down.

    One thing I'll add based on my readings and not personal experience (read: someone correct me if I'm wrong) is that you may have a hard time fitting them up front with oversized tires and your suspension components. Think about how much you rub now and then remove some of that clearance. You may have UCA clearance issues too, even driving on flat ground.

    They are a pain to put on fire trucks!

    Yeah; practice beforehand or make it easier on yourself and install a dually setup and then drive on the inner tire for the rear... oh wait thats on a firetruck again...
