    I’m also using a 2.5* shim for pinion alignment to prop shaft but may have to increase to the 4* I have at the house since I’m getting the takeoff vibe. Will install my Mobtown steel plate bumper and see if it doesn’t bring the angle down a smidge before swapping shims.

    I just cut the bottom in the middle, and bent them like the backend of a fishing hook, but about 25% larger than the diameter of the cardboard tube. It Doesn't spin, but it's also locked in on the coat hanger. You have to pull, relatively, hard to get the roll off the coathanger lol.

    Guessing with the removal and replacement of my OEM bumper/grill and headlight I could probably use a set of fasteners like these. Anybody have suggestions or warnings regarding these aftermarket clip packs?


    ...and before it's mentioned, yes I know a welded and fastened bumper would be a better replacement, but I haven't even owned the truck for two weeks yet so I can't justify spending the money before I make my first payment on it.

    Right on. Thanks for the info. The build never stops out here. def thought the 5100's and 3 leaf AAL would be enough to support a bed rack and RTT + camping gear. My reverse rake although subtle, is so cringy

    I was bouncing between the EL095R and the EL096R. VERY HAPPY with the 96! If it’s too much you can reduce the leaf pack. I didn’t. I’m at about 3.5” all around. The Westin bar in the pic will be replaced by a Mobtown bumper and winch when I’m home on R&R.F9A24E96-95D0-484F-8AA4-A37C7D150B8F.jpg

    Agreed, it is worth it. This is dakars, b110 and +4” brake lines and that’s it. This is my old set up.

    Done earlier but I didn't post a picture:
    My lit up CH4x4 switches

    002.jpg

    Installed white LED's in factory VSC/TRAC Off and RSCA switches (hard to see with the flash).These were the LED's used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07LCMBSJT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Why does the "Bed Lights" switch stick so far out in this location?

    It's just amusing to me that the title for the listing is correct "release the kraken" but then they either took a picture of a misspelled part and still used it for the image or photoshopped the writing on, effed it up and still didn't go back and correct it.

    Why don't you just go to the local Toyota dealer parts department and tell them you need all the plastic rivets and push pins to do what you are doing

    Just a note, it matches the MGM color perfectly, BUT it’s matte and not gloss. When I have the time I will be spraying clear over it to take care of that
