    Cheapos on Amazon. Works great. When all lights are off they're all uniform, which was what I was going for. Rear bumper is great, I have no complaints.Screenshot_20200802-134841_Amazon Shopping.jpg 20200719_185745.jpg

    I think it turned out pretty well. Added a couple nonskid strips to the top so the seating surface is less slippery.

    Installed my @victory4x4 lca skids (instructions on the spacers would have been really nice instead of extra guess work)

    now waiting on the paint to dry for the underside of my front skid so I can reinstall it.

    Side note, how often do you all take your removable armor off and re coat it? I’ve been doing the when it’s looks bad enough I’ll do it but wondering what everyone else’s schedule looks like.

    Ordered an ARB snatch strap from Amazon. Got the right box with the wrong item! :mad:

    it’s not just a scam. It’s fucking dangerous. Whatever company sent them like that should be ashamed.

    Could you imaging if I didn’t know better and used the strap that has about 1/2 the breaking strength and a metal hook on each end to recover myself or someone else and have that thing snap.

    ordered this

    4.56 with ARB lockers front and rear. Did the rear axle breather mod to the taillight. Replaced all the axle seals. Gravity bled the brakes. Replaced the rear brakes.

    Found an issue with the Taco Tabs I installed earlier this year. Gotta get a replacement set from Poly Performance. Only the driver side caster tabs are like this.

    Slightly collapsed on themselves o_O. The bushing washers were bent as well.

    Installed new (to me) bed bolts.
    I bought a used bed before this virus nonsense. Switched beds and used my original bolts to install the used bed.
    When I was done I was going through the rest of the parts and picked up a storage bin and it seemed strangely heavy.
    I took off the lid and there were 6 bolts in way better shape then the ones I had.
    Finally changed them today (torqued to 44 ft. lbs.).

    Replaced my serpentine belt and all the pulleys, the belt tensioner assembly took a bit to install. Truck runs smoother and quieter now.

    I'm doing this in a few weeks myself. What tire size you running? & how far back did you cut them?
