    I've had the lift on for a week now and am getting a vibration from the rear when engaging the clutch and moving up to 20 mph. Taking it out of gear at that speed eliminates the vibration. It's not what I'd say bad, just noticeable. I retorqued all the rear suspension bolts but they were fine. I have the OME carrier bearing drop on order based on Toytec's recommendation. Hopefully that's the cause.

    I dug pretty deep into this, it seems the quick $12 kit might fix it, so I figure I'll give that a go first. If that doesn't work I'm going full bore and measuring out the drivetrain angles and doing shims.

    I installed the OME FK29 carrier drop kit. It made a difference, maybe 75% better. Vibration is reduced to 5 mph but is more noticeable. Though up to 40 mph I get an oscillating vibration every four seconds or so. My thinking is that a CB drop alters the transfer case to CB angle, when it was fine to begin with. Axle shims are the next step. 2.5 degrees seems to be what most guys have so I'll start there.

    Added 3 degree shims. Took care of the 40 mph vibe but I'm still getting one at 12-20 mph but only when accelerating. That's with and without the carrier bearing drop. I'm going to drive a couple days without the cb drop, then put it back in and see. First impressions though, the cb drop didn't do jack squat.

    I went through the process of installing one washer at a time on the carrier bearing to drop it gradually. I got over 1" of drop, combining the OME shims and washers, before I felt like I needed longer bolts. Getting them soon but I'm guessing the final fix will be around 1.5", the same drop as Street Taco's kit.

    Installed a G4 Elite Fold A Cover today. Installation wasn't easy but not too bad. Broke a bolt over torquing but not a big deal. Pretty impressed with the build quality.

    So I FINALLY got my Streetacos CB drop bracket after 8 weeks. It reduced my vibrations to almost nothing, but still a little rumble around 20 and some oscillation around 40. I'd say the CB bracket took care of 80% of the vibrations. Guess I'll have to live with it.

    I had RSG Offroad in Lakewood CO install the ECGS bushing and do an alignment. The bushing makes a huge difference, no more oscillations at 40. They did a great job on the alignment too, drives like a totally different truck.

    Nice! My wife and I each have P200's, but we haven't ridden in years. Good to have a truck to get to rallys!
