    Maybe not today, but..

    After the months of research, uncountable messages, a group buy, numerous phone calls, references, measurements, and a few “doctors appointments” from work, I’ve got the heavy lifting done.

    The top photo is the state that my truck has been in since I picked it up last May. Decrepit suspension thanks to the former owner’s excessive use of the bed paired with the pedestrian version of General Grabbers.

    The middle photo is after the figment of:
    Fox 2.5 coilovers (883-02-025)
    Fox 2.0 extended rear shocks w/ external reservoir (985-24-118)
    SPC adjustable UCAs (25470)
    Icon RXT leaf packs on the second setting (51101)

    The third photo was an hour ago, after a little 110 mile shake down. This with the addition of:
    17” TRD Pro SEMA wheels (PTR20-35110-BK)
    Falken Wildpeak AT3W in 245/70/17

    D7C72F57-938D-49C2-95E3-E6B68AA0E4EC.jpg

    An upgrade is an understatement. Bumps, cracks, potholes and surface transitions are buttery smooth in comparison to what I had spent the last year rolling around on. Before the upgrades I was sure to collect the initial hub-to-fender measurements with half a tank:
    Front: 19.75”
    Rear: 20.5”

    Now, with half a tank after the fact:
    Front: 22”
    Rear: 24”

    I’m excited to put many more miles down as the days continue to get longer.

    Washed my truck today.
    Easier now because it's dusty season; no more mud for a while...

    Checked my air filter : very clean .
    The precleaner on the snorkel does a great job, and it really prevent 80 % of the dust to reach the air filter

    Removed the coils that comes with the Bilstein 6112 kit and installed Eibach 700lb coils. Gained a little over 1" of lift on the same (4th notch) setting. Heavier duty coils were needed since the ARB bumper/winch install. Trucks sitting a lot more level now with a bit of rake still.

    Fuck rubber bushings.

    I needed to replace my ball joints, so while I was at it I decided to upgrade to poly bushings because the earlier year jba came with rubber and paint them black. I’ve always hated the red.
