    Rebuilt with flatbed 5100's, new spring packs
    1. Made me realize my perches were up side down on the 5100's
    2. Found out about the TSB's on the springs and tranny. Both done.
    3. Gained some wiring tips for towing. All wired up.
    4. Found a fiberglass cap for the DC. Thanks redsoxx
    5. Found some Thule racks Thanks Coastie.

    Thanks everyone.

    I seriously spend way too much time on here.

    1. Turn off my seatbelt chime when dog is sitting shotgun
    2. Found me a great deal on some new SAW c/o's
    3. Gave me an idea on how to relocate my trailer plug
    4. Saved me the trouble of figuring out how big of tire I can run with a stock setup
    4.5 showed me pictures of lifted trucks eith 265/75-16's
    5. Learned everything about all of the lift options
    6. Found out my engine ticking is normal
    7. Found out about TSBs
    8. Convinced me that Spidertraxx spacers are NOT junk and work quite well actually
    9. Let me visually sample every bumper, lightbar, and slider made for Tacos
    10. Found other locals with the same enthusiasm I have to modify a perfectly good truck!

    Also found out there is more to the internet than free porn... weird.
