    What's on the install list that you haven't done yet?

    Nope. Still rocking stock.

    I'm tool poor. This is what happens when my dad always had the tools and garage, but now that I have my own home I'm starting from scratch. Ughhhhhhh

    If you want some help I'd be willing to drag my crap down there and help out. It'd have to be on one of my non kiddo sundays. It would keep you at the house on kiddo duty and she could watch. Maybe some others would be willing to help as well and we could bang it out really quickly.

    Hopefully! I want to try and avoid loosening the cam bolts on the front lca's if possible, just to keep the alignment too far out of whack for now. The rear should be plenty easy.

    Also, gotta find out why/where it is squeaking when turning the wheel since going through those mud holes.

    I would suggest to do it makes the lower control arms swing out of the way and also won't put the bushings in a bind and twisted up. Just take some white out or similar and put a witness mark on the cam and the frame then when you go to tighten them back up it'll be where it was. That's how I did mine and the alignment was pretty damn close. It was off just because of the the suspension being in a different position but drive straight.

    Interested to see what you think of the Dobinson suspension.

    Looking at those BlackVue cameras the one in 4k only shoots at 30 fps do you think the video quality will suffer as far as smoothness goes compared to the one you have. The video you posted looked really good don't know if 4k would be that much better than what you have shooting at 60fps

    Yeah I don’t know if it would be worth spending the extra $$ for the 4K model just yet. The 1080p @ 60fps seems to do good.

    Really I got it for the added insurance in the even another wreck happens - the off roading videos are just an added bonus.

    I put miles on my truck like you do. That is what I am looking at it for. I've been in enough accidents where if a camera where there it would of been so much better. Like today on the way home I called the highway patrol on an impala that was all over the place dash cam footage would of been great for this.

    Yeah, the only problem is you really have to be right on someone’s ass to get a clear shot of a tag #. That’s about the only downside.

    At least your pup can go wheeling without throwing up all over the place! Tried it with mine and the poor thing threw up till she couldn't no more then just looked miserable the rest of the day.

    There’s probably some YouTube videos by now comparing the two. I’m too lazy to look though :p
