    Use your ears and not your eyes grasshoppa. You'll most likely hear one before you see it, and by that point, you're probably standing right on top of it. :bananadead:

    I wonder what a 10mm would do to a snake at 5yrds. If you could hit the damn thing. :infantry:

    I was soooo glad I spent the winter in Missouri and not the summer. BIVUAC in the snow is more bearable than the humid heat and critters. Fox holes and snakes and ticks etc.. just don't work for me.

    The only indication on my setup (OEM Toyota RR DIFF LOCK switch) is the button pressed in. You notice a change in handling and I turn it off as soon as I don't need it. The beauty of the Harrop is how quickly they engage and disengage, you hit one button in any drivetrain config and in one diff rotation you have a locked diff, off is basically instant unless under strain.

    Cool man.

    I'll definitely be looking into the Harrop for the front diff.

    My recent trip to DV:
    My buds were giving me a ration of shit about the RTT that I bought and sported while they camped on the ground.
    1/2 thru the trip, I encountered a giant rattler that was rattling so vigorously that I could hear it in the truck and I thought it was a punctured tire due to the whooshing sound. Then very next morning at high elevation on Hunter Mountain, I was help a non-RTT bud fold up his ground cover and sure-as-shit a scorpion had camped under him all night. Photo proof...


    Scorpions sting is no joke:
    Got stung in my heel in the dark while walking from the house to the attached garage to get a bottled water in La Mesa, CA. Felt like stepping on a needle. Called ER and they said that if there was a red line running up my leg, get in; otherwise you have to sit it out as I did for 3 hours of numb foot and ankle. There was no blood at the puncture spot so i think I only got 1/3-1/2 of a dose of venom.

    So...do you really have to loosen the lca bolts and remove the knuckle bolts to put a lean shim in?:annoyed:
    Gave myself Rhabdo last week and still recovering.
    I’m lucky as I had gone to work and not seen a doctor six days afterward. Kidneys are pist, one is swollen with fluid but no blockages found.
    I have a bad time stopping when something needs to get done.

    I’m going to see how much it’ll run to get it installed and aligned. I can’t stand the excessive taco lean .

    Two agm batteries and my 230lbs ass!
    The lean is so bad I'd swear the frames bent.

    Mule added a little more preload when the BPs were replaced but it doesn't look like it helped much.

    You can also disconnect the Outer TRE and sway bar to slide the coilovers out the side.

    I don't have one on my truck but I don't like to assume it's been removed from every truck on TW. If I say remove just outer TRE and there's still a sway bar they will still have a problem.
    Even easier then, one but for the TRE, 3 at the top on the coilover and one at the bottom. Loosen the coilover bolts while it's still on 4 wheels, then jack the front end and the coilover will drop right out

    Stuff and things... maybe a little rust
    Not sure if anyone answered yet, just now seeing this. Been gone all weekend for my bachelor party.

    This is similar to the one I have. I got it from a guy who was advertising on here as Instant Air Supply but it sounds like he isn't doing it anymore.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0085EVSOU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_0wHwDbEZSWAH0

    The fixed pressure regulator keeps it nice and simple for our application. 150 might be a little much if you want to run air tools but most should be able to handle it for limited use.

    Also I snapped a picture of the mount I have. When the tank is in there I have it setup with the regulator pointing toward the side so I can access it just fine with the bed fully loaded. Having it at the front of the bed means my 12ft hose can reach all 4 tires from that location as well.

    Any reason you dont adjust the driver side preload to compensate for lean?
