    Not very impressed with the CBI brackets. I had a set on my first gen and they were great but not so much this time around. Powder coat wore off after shipping, missing nuts, and I had to bend the brackets to get them to mount plumb. But happy with the end result! Just need to wire the lights up after I get some nice wire loom to make a harness and a switch.

I had to buy the 3 wire DD harness for my SS2’s and cut it so I could run my positive and negative to my Swich-Pros and the third wire to my running lights. It’s cut a couple inches above the relay it wouldn’t take a lot to splice in your wiring.

    Well looks like I'm getting the $40 XL version. That's, I want to say, $100 so far on grease coupling accoutrements. :D

    Whatever, as long as I can get some grease into the rat bastard. Even my cheapy lucas coupler is just a tit bit too wide to clamp on.

    For what its worth, I had a hell of a time trying to get grease into my Dirt King LCA zerk with my normal coupler. I would pop it on and the grease would start coming out of the end and not go into the zerk. I bought the Lock N Lube (long version just in case the short version wouldn't be able to reach my zerks on the front of my driveshaft) and this thing powered right through with no problem. This was just my experience. $40 well spent on my end.

    Thank you! Loving it, although funny you say this, I always thought Spruce Micah DCLB (and a cap) was rare, but there happen to be 4 of them within 10km of where I live. Looks like I'm in the capital of spruce micah's hah

    It's fantastic, definitely took a lot of the small bumps out of the road during daily driving. It's also a fair amount softer wheeling, you can move faster over rougher terrain.

    No complaints here.

    I would imagine the fifth setting would make it ride similar in 'roughness' to a stock setup

    Also running 4/4 with 5160 and dakar leaf pack. The front is noticeably softer with a bit more brake dive. No complaints though, it's a lifted truck.
