    I basically have my own RTI ramp at my house which is pretty nice. I'm pretty happy with the amount of travel on the truck now, but it's also making me nervous about running stock brake lines. Got an alignment today as well. Camber and toe came in just fine. However, the caster was giving the tech some issues. Seems that the bushing around the caster adjustment bolt was spinning causing some issues, but the truck drives great and actually handled a lot of the vibration issues I was getting :D

    Looking good, unless you buy new brake lines you can make a spacer to push the brake lines up.

    Well hopefully the bumper will be here. It shipped through Fastenal today so hopefully it will be here in a week:pray:

    IF the bumper makes it, I'm hoping we can wire up the winch. If that gets done quickly, I'd like to pre-wire my light bar up to the headliner (leaving it disconnected from the battery obviously), so that when it is installed on the 9th I can do a quick solder job and it would be all done.

    Sold my motorcycle. Didn't want to take it to Cali and it would just sit during training anyway so I decide to get rid of it while it still had a lot of value. On an ROTC scholarship, get paid $400 a month through my stipend, so I really have no expenses.

    Stopped by Fastenal because they don't have tracking information available online or anything. The bumper didn't leave Cali until last night and they're expecting it to take a week to a week and a half to get here.
