    Take the slightly longer route and pickup Highway 40 just east of Salt Lake. Follow that at least through Steamboat Springs, if not all the way to I-70. Much nicer drive than I-80 through Wyoming and definitely worth the less than 2 hours of extra driving.

    This might be a stupid question but what is the purpose of a u-bolt flip? I keep reading them on people's mod list and have no clue what they do :notsure:

    The main purpose (I believe) is to get more clearance, because the stock mounts hang a inch or two below the axle. Not sure if it does anything else.

    Does the flip kit come with a new center bolt for the springs?
    Also can you use longer u-bolts like say for a lift kit without having issues?

    tail gate lock, rear view mirror bracket, hood hinge brackets, and the list grows.
    Tonneau installed little longer than expected but no real issues. If anyone is thinking about the G4 elite from fold a cover just take you time patience is a virtue with the adjusting.

    Yep!

    As mentioned by MGFTacoFF, yes it does slightly improve clearance, one less thing to get hung up on, and also gives the threads better protection from the elements. Also a little easier to work on.

    No need for a new center pin, the plate fits over your pin and nut. When you order them, tell them what kind of pack you have and they will send you the appropriate length bolts. I have the ICON 3 leaf mini AAL pack.

    OME lift installed, my suspension put on the wife's 4Runner, all with the help of my dad and a couple of great friends. Total install time for both vehicles combined was a little over 3 hours. I got it aligned but my steering wheel is off to the right, so I'll have to take it back next week which is a bummer. Also need a sway bar relocation bracket.
