    killer. it was a bit loud at first, but once I got it broken-in and all the fittings nice and tight, I loved it.

    some throttle response increase, not sure about power or MPG. but man does it sound good - i will try to get a decent clip up someday...

    **Build Update**

    Lots of updates about to roll in .. I have been spending more time with the truck than the camera and computer...


    I picked up a new prerunner style front bumper, sleeved DOM, made by SurfInferno - great guy to deal with and a great quality bumper.

    Some pics of the tear down:

    I had the bumper powdercoated the same textured black as the Pack Rack to match - the rack is about to get welded together and re-coated :D

    Without the skid:

    With the bare aluminum skid installed (would love to get a logo or something laser cut for air flow)

    Moar pics to come of the KR Tiregate installed and some new off road lights and switches.

    A close-up of the new hardware installed to freshen it up, including welded t-handles with locks (I know you can practically snap these with your hand - but it deters a lot of people)

    :spy: Saw your truck on the 5 today (creepy sounding?), looks insane in person. Going to have to check it out up close without endangering others on the freeway:D

    creepy? what does that mean?
    I also had my bike rack in the hitch, so it looked extra rigged-out.


    Will get some good shots of the mounted tent soon - it worked great in Ocotillo last weekend for RecklessTaco's b-day.

    "creepy" as in stalking you and made a point to pass on drivers side then slow down and let you pass on passenger side to get a good look at the truck. :D

    oh, haha .. I thought you meant the truck sounded creepy.

    nah I do that all the time when I see something awesome, can't believe I got that kind of attention :cool:

    The bed rack and tent really stands out. Also The tire gate also caught my attention. Truck looks and sounds really good. Never thought I'd be thinking about exhaust but yours sounds pretty good running up the 5

    Also just noticed in another post you said you re-geared. Did you get that done locally? Trying to find a good shop to regear when I have to fix my front diff again.

    Will do! Did you have the front diff vibe? Thinking about trying the ecgs bushing at the same time.
    Thanks again.

    im not familiar with the ecgs bushings .. will have to research those.

    I dont have any new vibrations with the gears even in 4x4
    the steering wheel has a new shake between 60-65, but I am pretty sure that is due to unbalanced wheels :(

    **Gears!**

    Some photos of the 4.56 Nitro gears going in .. not much to see, but I finally took the photos off my phone

    Coming soon: Pack Rack was welded and re-coated - no more rust!
    Finishing wiring the HIDs along with the aux fuse panel and tray
