    After talking with Silas, I think we tested out the locker and didn't realize the results were telling us that the front diff was locked. So, looks like everything is a "GO" to finish out the lights and wire up the switches.

    Don't forget to bring your skid plate with you next time and I'll cut that extra off for you.

    Was thinking about that last night. Also, did I leave the big relay there? It isn't in my stuff and checked the engine compartment with no luck.

    Finally finished painting the skidplate crossmember:

    I'll be mounting it to the steering rack this weekend. Hoping to have the skidplate cut down and mounted the following weekend.

    I have thought repeatedly about the S/C. Probably should have jumped on Ripcord's when I had the chance but the longevity of the motor keeps nagging at me. Nothing new out there compares to my 1st Gen except maybe an Ikon. Hoping to get atleast another decade out of my litte Tacoma.

    I've got 200K on my motor, 170K supercharged, 110K of that without fuel mods (previous owner). 5vzs are very stout.

    What made you choose icon UCAs?

    You are not helping my bank account.

    I went with aftermarket UCAs because of the ball joints forcing the spindles into the coils. I chose Icons because I'll eventually go to a full up Icon setup somewhere here down the road. Already running into weight issues on the OME 882s due to the Elite front bumper. Still planning to add Budbuilts and a winch.

    Eibachs have a stiffer spring rate than the 882s right? Maybe they would be the route + billie 5100s to give you some adjustability.

    Those Icons look great. Damn, I want to run an Elite bumper (though maybe their aluminum option), winch and upgraded skids down the road, makes me wonder about my spring rate plans. Was going to use 881s and my billie 5100's perches to adjust as necessary to maintain ride height...

    I forgot to type it up, the other reason for going Icons was the extended travel. It'd be nice to take advantage of keeping all 4 wheels on the ground when crawling.

    Noice! I'm looking to go a little bigger but not quite that. 35s would be nice with maybe a 4" lift. Thinking a complete TG SAS kit. Going to take what I can get out of a true MT setup until then.
