    Cleaned MAF sensor, throttle body and installed new spark plugs... Looking forward to see what the difference will be!

    Probably not much. I had 60K on my original plugs. Changed them, cleaned maf and throttle body and saw no change in fuel mileage.

    Replacing everything worn, broken, and rusted.
    Mine ran smoother. Just make sure you disconnect the battery so you can reset the ECU. Otherwise you'll be gear searching for a while.

    Sorry just seeing this. There is a slight rub in the front of the inner fenderwell at full steering lock. Since you have a lift I don't think you'd have the same rubbing. I could trim away the plastic easily but I'll do the lift first. Just wouldn't recommend getting the tires first cause then you'll have the rubbing.

    Just commuted today. That's 255/85/16s on stock suspension. Slight rub at full lock. Side note, if anyone wants to trade their standard height camper shell for my Leer 180 I'd be very interested. Color is MGM, it does not match my truck.

    (wouldn't be a Georgia pic without a Waffle House sign in the background)

    Just swapped out my spark plugs at 65,000 with Toyota Denso's. I've been slacking a little on the maintenance.

    I thought it was going to be a horrible experience but it was super easy and only took 45 minutes!

    Here's what I pulled, NGK on the drivers side and Denso on the passenger:

    Not too bad for 65k! I did mine at 30k and I think I'll let them go a little longer this next time.

    Not sure what the cylinder numbers are but the ones closest to the firewall on the drivers and passenger side were definitely worse than the rest. I'll do them sooner next time.

    Installed 4.30 gears today, preassembled by ECGS. Used @MonkeyProof's write up and it went in easily!

    And installed wheel bearings done preassembled by @05Taco4x4. Quality stuff and makes it an easier job, just take the old ones off, and slap the new ones on.

    Both took all day but saved a couple thousand bucks in Labor!

    Quick question, with your wiring, does it just up and over the side of the cubby box towards the engine bay?

    I'm about to install mine within the upcoming weeks and was trying to figure out where the wiring goes .
