    Yeah, KM2's are great for everything but sand :/

    But I bet they would work good if you dropped the pressure to about 15.

    Chris, not sure how stuck you are on keeping the SG there on the steering column. I used to have mine there, but moved it to above the rear view mirror.. only cost me a couple of bucks to do it. Lemme know if you want me to shoot you a couple of pics of it mounted.

    What is did was found 2 really cheap ass measuring tapes. Walmart or dollar store works fine, remove the belt clip from both tapes, then get some good RTV that can hold up to the warm temps in the cab (dont use double stick adhesive) and adhere the clips to the top of the SG. Done!! Run your wire from the OBDII up along the pillar, tuck in behind headliner and install in finished. Hardest part is running that wire. Clip the SG to the headliner and looks like a pro install!!

    Forgot who's idea this was.. but wasn't mine.. got it off here

    I cant tell a difference on the road and never went off road with the new suspension with them on. But I absolutely live the way the truck handled wen we took it out. Just wish I had a touch more lift and flex in the back end. Oh and you where right I should have raked the hitch plug off I bent it up bad and broke one of the tabs

    Damn! Try eBay or maybe TW . If someone is selling theirs. Toyota Hawaii wants 3 large. It's a complete wire harness too.

    I'm pretty sure its your rear shocks keeping you from flexing more. Looked like the leafs could still drop a few inches, but the shocks were maxed out :)
