    Finally installed the extended rear stainless steel braided brake lines from Headstrong Off Road. Cleaned up the axle and gave it a quick spray can job. A1FA8831-5448-4535-A8A5-F69C9918374C.jpg

    So very little room at the top connection, but glad it’s finally done.

    Done by me: decals, plastidip, and vinyl. More to come. Not done by me: Icon front/rear suspension; Total Chaos UCA’s; Method wheels/34” Falken tires; Prinsu cab rack/LED light bar; V1Air compressor piped to a 2.5 gallon underbed tank; Pelfreybilt front/rear bumpers; Smittybilt front winch.
    Installed the AJT climate control/4WD knobs. Crazy how much better those feel, and I’m thoroughly happy with them already.

    The top connection was a pain due to lack of space but doable. I use plastic plugs to close off the lines to minimize brake fluid dripping. Bled the brakes, went for a test drive and everything was good.

    I used these. Another pro tip, use a good flare nut wrench. I had an old flare nut wrench and it wouldn't grip the nut well enough and kept slipping. Picked up a good set on Amazon and it was cake.

    Its not that hard, just requires really akward positions. I was sore from the wierd positions required to get the upper ones off and back on for a couple days.

    Drove it to my Niece's house, again. Had to change the spark plugs on her car.
    Over the last few days, I have been getting the smell of oil through the A/C. I replaced a PCV hose thinking that was the leak but it must still be leaking.
    During my drive yesterday I stopped in to Toyota and picked up the valve cover gasket set. Of course it had to rain today :(

    Fabricated and test fitted a mount for some lights behind the grill (yes I know that it'll filter out some of the light....no need to point it out). Pulled it out for a couple of tweaks, and coats of flat black. Hopefully I can get them wired up today. Turns out with my lo pro bumper its gotta be EITHER a light bar, or a winch. There can be only one, so the behind grill lights are my alternative. Next step, winch.
