    4.88’s and Harrop e locker in the rear. Still need to wire up the e locker due to some issues but I’m loving it. A bit over geared for 33’s so I’m sure it’ll be perfect for 35’s

    How is the changeout with the EZ-Pack? I don't really like using the little pumps and not being able to get all the oil out of the bottles.

    Unbolted my bed divider in the hopes of selling it.
    Checked the operation of all of my exterior lights (I need some LED reverse and license plate bulbs).
    Wiring in the relay for my remote start harness.

    Added 5100s today. Using the stock springs on the 3rd notch for now till I can get OME springs. My old shocks were toast. They had no pressure or spring back. Explains the bouncy ride. Ride is really good for being the stock springs on the 3rd notch. Getting an alignment Monday. Still waiting for wheelers progressive 3 add a leaf to come in also.

    started to paint the fender flares with SEM trim black. Scuffed then up and painted them. I’m going to eventually raptor line them so I didn’t bother with filling any of the small gouges. Looks good from 3’ so it works.

    I need to figure out how to remove the fender Flare nub that’s on the front bumper

    Brown Santa is at it early this year. New suspension system showed up today from Dobinsons.

    Set up for 2.6" in the front and 2.1" in the back. I can't believe how robust the rear shocks are. They're just frickin beefsticks compared to the 5100s I have now, one of which has been blown for longer than I care to admit. Looking forward to seeing how much nicer the ride is over the Bilsteins. Taco lean spacer is supposed to show up next week, then I can get it all installed. Does anyone have a guesstimate on how much shop time I'm looking at?

    Thanks @Crikeymike at Exit Offroad for all your input.

    All I asked Joe was to do what he does best (build high & tight armor/fabrication & I asked that it be as tucked & simple as possible. I already had HC bedside cuts that asked he curve his tube as tight as possible from the back to the upper side cuts. A crawler he built had this amazing bumper he built & I asked him to mimic it as close as possible. Here’s pics of the blue truck. He did some really great work

    A wise man who obviously loves his (hot) wife. Probably gets to modify his truck as often as he wants with the outlook he espouses. Learn from his example.

    We had one of those, along with a Ford F150 Supercrew. The 4-wheel-drive-system is that the Sienna had 4 wheels and I had the 4WD. (However, the wife liked the 4WD so I sold the Sienna and the F150, bought her a Highlander with AWD and myself a Tacoma A/C TRD OR, 4.0L, 6-spd MT, go-anywhere-I-want mudbucket. That's the real solution to the 4-wheel-drive-system question. :) )
