    I’d say they’re a DIY project if you have all the tools. You’ll need a torque wrench that will go to 150 ft-lb & 32mm socket & grease gun with proper grease. Then you need to get it aligned.

    Given they are aluminum it’s not like they are going to rust anyway. I had the steel ones on my old truck years ago.

    Same crap everyone else got
    My old 88 4runner had a small trap door under the rear passenger seat that went directly over the gas tank. Had no idea about iit after having the thing in my family for over 30 years. Discovered it when I had to replace a cracked fuel line just to sell it. Sometimes you think wow, they have thought of everything! Then sometimes they make things that are the most common to replace over and over a royal pain access.

    No, thought about it, but no. I have 2x6” redwood boards of various lengths that I use depending on the ground type. I also use the boards for my camper, so they are with me all the time. Since I contacted them to make sure I got the Omega jack and not the substitute, I should have asked if they would throw that in. But, they distracted me with discounts, price, and not getting the substitute jack....as they only had a couple of the Omega jacks in stock.

    I just installed my Squareone Creations frame caps. The open frame always bothered me & I have been wanting to come up with a solution. Then I ran across this product. Easy to install, but I did have to chase paint out of the threads with a tap.

    Installed my new to me Relentless Fabrication LO-Pro Bumper a couple days back (thanks again @TacoTyusday ). More of a test fit until I decide to mount my winch and replace the light bar in a couple weeks. Gave her a bath, and installed the slow open tailgate kit today.

    Finally dremeled away enough of the dash switch to fit the very deep/large EATON e locker switch for my front locker. I was slinging a LOT of molten hot plastic around the cab :rofl: Also built a lattice for back yard plants to go against the wall. This will get painted black

    I don’t think they have any Omega’s left, but give them a call (509-736-1513) or put this here: “If you write a note in the notes box saying "please ship with Omega jack". We will make sure to ship with the Omega jack.” As far as discounts, you’re gonna have to get that from them. I would call or email them before placing an order online. Amazon is showing this product is unavailable and we don’t know when, blah, blah, blah....

    I spent the last 5 days trying to get the smoke smell out of the truck with a 130000 miles on it. Seems like it's almost done. Replaced the cabin filter(yuck) , steam cleaned it (OMG YUCK!) Blue Coral carpet/upholstery cleaner, then I used X99, Ozium and febreeze and an armor all car bomb. Smells good 3 days later with lots of sunshine and windows open.
