    St Maxx on Trd pro wheels, mbrp exhaust, k&n cai, jba's, 887's over 5100's, medium dakars and 5125's.
    I’ve just done all this myself. Never done anything on a vehicle before aside from wiring a stereo and changing fluids.
    Leaf packs - 3 hours
    Rear 5125’s - 40 mins
    UCA’s - 2.5 hours
    Only thing I got the shop to do was take off the oem coil springs from the struts and put 885’s around the 5100’s. Could’ve done myself but I wasn’t working on a completely level area and didn’t want to fuck about.
    Consider saving yourself $864 with minor tools.

    I have more storage than what the oem storage bins offered since I removed them. I have about 6 inches of clearance between the rear cab wall an the top vertical part of the platform, and roughly 10 inches at the bottom behind the folded seats.

    Really like it. How is that piece attached? Is it hinged or does it just sit in there? What is it made out of? I don't like that when my back seat is folded that the stuff back there is visible or won't stay put.

    I have a cheaper install set up for Monday at another garage. I don't have the tools or patience to try this by myself. There would be massive amounts of man-tantrums (mantrums?) and tools flying through the air.

    These are going to rust as soon as it rains. Ultra black corrosion resistant stuff is fine and so is black phosphate/oxide coated stainless but plain black over non-stainless steel = rust

    Looks sweet. Did you end up having them powder coat it?

    Had to send the cap back to ARE for a repair. Hoping they decide it can't be fixed and they'll give me credit towards a new one :fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed:. Forgot how good she looks with the top off.

    I placed the order on the 20th of July, it shipped out on the 3rd of September, and received the bumper on the 11th of September.

    It's kind of nice when you order something and forget about it till you get an email saying your item shipped! lol

    My topper dilemma - truck looks good without it and I don't miss the weight, but within a week I miss the functionality of the topper. Back on it goes!

    its wierd. I guess the windoor frame is somehow bonded to the shell so they can't fix it at the shop. Needs to be sent out. Its a discontinued model

    That is weird. Mine has a metal track that the windoor if fixed too and it is sharp on the bottom edge. Looks like you just need some super glue on that.

    They said it woulda failed again eventually. Really hoping they scrap it and I can get one of the reinforced toppers with side doors. Prefer that for my RTT
