    Why did you weld the shackle lug on top of the hitch tube rather than at the end, like existing products on the market do?

    I saw another reg cab(2012-2014)4x4 in traffic, turned around followed him for a minute and got him to pull over. I noticed he was lifted and had rear BHLM so I wanted to ask him about any vibes and if his lights leaked at all. Turns out he had a 2" front spacer lift and he bought the tail lights from Ebay and said he had them six months and they don't leak. He said no vibes from the lift. He had 17' Sport wheels with 265's. He said that the "Injen" intake negated the adverse effect to the fuel mile by the 265's. IDK about that, although he did produce a '' gas mileage log book". He also has a V8 as his second ride so we talked about that a while. I told him about this place and showed him my Ultra-Guage I'd just installed. He had to have one. It was pretty neat getting to meet a fellow Taco driver.

    Yesterday I got the oil changed, today I replaced spark plugs and replaced the front brake pads. Tomorrow i'm hoping to replace all fluids in both diffs, tcase and transmission. Then i'll cleaned up and trail rash underneath the truck with paint and finally get her undercoated with Krown rust proofing. All ready for the winter soon enough!

    I thought you sold the M416.
    You found another one?

    Sure did.

    I saw it yesterday on CL and grabbed it first thing this morning.

    The lunette is cut, but I can fix that.

    The rest of it is in good condition.

    The left hub got a little warm coming home.

    I was having second thoughts about selling the first one, but I had already agreed to sell it.

    That's not going to happen with this one.

    Pressure-washed more mud from the wheelwells that I missed two days ago.

    Which brand of gear oil are you using. I find Lucas synthetic 75W90 stinks less than Castrol Syntec. Wonder how bad the Quaker State 75W140 will be. :eek:

    Guess I've gone crazy, did this this weekend. OME lift with 886s and Dakars, ARB winch bar on the front with a Warn M8000. Was going to put on LR UCAs, but Toytec sent me the wrong ball joints so that will have to happen later. Still need an alignment, but I think I'll save that for after I change out the UCAs.

    Looks awesome...can you do me a silly favor and measure the height to the roof of the truck? I want to eventually do the same setup, but I am worried that I won't clear my garage with my roof lights. I have slightly taller tires, but it should give me a ball park.
