    I would have the bolts JIC. I bent my sheet metal to pull out one side and it was ridiculously easy. The other side did not have clearance whatsoever. A 1.5 hour job ended up taking 5 troubleshooting the issue and I realized my cab was slightly off center, making it impossible to just bend the sheet metal out of the way. I had to cut a piece out in order to pull the bolt out. Just cutting the bolt and replacing it would have been much more easier; additionally I have not read anything about anyone's bolts actually falling out here at all.

    It will temporarily fix that. But anytime I come to a slightly more abrupt stop or brake down a hill, I hear this clunk and then that rotational clunking starts happening again. Driving me nuts. I don't want to take it to a shop but I can't figure out what's wrong when everything inside the drum looks fine.

    That JD crossmember is pretty wild. I stumbled across a YouTube video from a guy up in BC that has their long travel kit that actually drives his truck like he stole it and it looks like it handles everything he throws at it.

    Suspension question: When is a rebuild necessary? By feel?

    Have an OME medium kit that’s about 20-25K miles old. Weekend adventures (nothing crazy - FS roads) otherwise commuting on highway/city.

    Things feel fine, but wondering if it’s necessary at X miles like an oil change?

    Are you trying to fit a skid plate or trying to be proactive? If it’s the latter, I’d wait until you crush the pipe off-road. It might never happen and if it does, you’re still not paying more than you would now

    Bunch of stuff bolted on, some cool, some not
    I put a full set of Victory 4x4 skids on my truck about a month ago, been super happy with them. I went steel so they're heavy as hell but seem pretty freakin' stout.

    Full steel is only like 50lbs more than full aluminum and the weight is down low so the difference in negligible. Good choice.
