    the tcase skid and sliders were my #1 priority for moab..completely dictated where the truck was going to go..which means i never would have saw kane creek and i can't wait to go back to the creek (after i re-gear)

    adios sway bar!

    brought the beast in for an alignment and brake flush today, Jace was able to run through the truck and check over some things and also removed my sway bar for me prior to the alignment..

    can't wait to hit the trail up tomorrow and see how she flexes now!

    unfortunately having a check engine issue with my bank 2 sensor 2 which i'm thinking is related to my urd o2 sim. so i'll be running through the connections this weekend and dry things out hoping to solve the issue.

    going to also do the zip lock bag mod on the o2 sim to prevent future water issues

    got my ultraguage set to come in the mail this afternoon as well!

    oh and got my mud flap reattached! kane creek trail tried to take it from me

    now that's what i'm talking about!

    so far i haven't noticed a difference with the on-road handling either...i think the 886 springs help to keep things stiff in the front

    I noticed a better overall ride with minimal lean when cornering. I took mine off at the same time I cranked up my coilovers to makeup for the Taco lean and approx 3/4 inch sag I had after putting the winch and bumper on the truck. Make sure to post some flex pics of that front end.

    ARB Bumper cut project

    The goal:

    to cut my damn ARB bumper back so i am not shredding my damn tires on every large compression

    The plan:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    using a cutting wheel, cut along the white line to create ample space for my tire to travel

    with the help of my buddy jace, we marked in from the bottom as far as the bumper structure would allow us (if you have an ARB look behind the bumper on the bottom and you will see additional structuring at a certain point that would be hard to cut through and keep the integrity of the bumper).

    Then using a small metal ruler, i place the ruler within the fender flare near the bumper to mimic the curve of the fender to make a smooth transition (important to have a ruler that can bend and use your best judgment to continue the arc down to the bumper). this established the upper cutting point.

    then to connect the dots, i took a metal coat hanger and (while still in one piece) used the long straight bottom part of the hanger to make a curve mimicking the curve of the tire. This served as a template for the desired arc.

    use a paint pen and there ya go, a line to follow when trimming your bumper....

    after pics to follow, cutting expected to go down this afternoon after work
