    Some stuff
    I tied to use some of those on the bottom of my action packers, when I peeled the backing off the adhesive came off too. On to gorilla glue

    Local shop here just did KO II 285/70/17s on 17x8 zero-offset rims with the OME 005 kit and said it fit without any mods. No CMC, no UCAs. 2021 TRD OR base. I'm going to pull the trigger on that combo and will report back. I have the rims, just lining up all the other stuff... and other things I'd like done as long as it's in the shop.

    Thanks! It'll be nice to have some usability out of the rear and experience a whole new ride with those leafs. Here's how it's been sitting the last couple years.

    I had the Icon AAL added to mine as well and with the RSi shell I'm sitting 2 inches lower on the rear than the front. When they put it all together I was about 1/2-3/4" lower in the rear prior to the shell.

    Upgrading to new Icon RTX leaf packs due to the weight.

    My OEM leafs only have 20k on them so I didn't expect them to sag so bad even with the RSi cap (~180-200lbs).

    Installed these Topline side steps from Amazon. Link below

    Thanks to @TacoBlaze for posting about these. I really like the Cali Raised sliders, but I don't go off roading so I don't really need real sliders.

    I love the look and finish. These are steel, and bolt on easily just like oem steps/running boards. I have a long bed so these do not run completely from wheel to wheel, but I knew that before ordering. Not bad for $300! My wife and son love em, and now I can dry off the roof without opening the doors and standing on the sill so I'm happy with that. The step plate can be unbolted and flipped over for more tread if you'd like. (see last photo)

    We'll see how they hold up in the harsh, brutal, Southern California weather o_O :rofl:

    Looks like they need levelling kits. Did you have to do the CMC? What wheels/tires/lift are on it and did they rub? lol

    Those are awesome BTW. Love it.

    Yeah I've been running the Icon AAL for the last couple years and my rear is level to .5" lower than the front and that's probably over 60k miles. It's a much needed upgrade to the Deavers. I should be sitting ass high just a tad which is what I prefer. I always run the tent, rack, and tonneau with a bunch of the junk in the bed so I'm always sagging. Also note I only have about 1 5/8" of thread showing on the coilovers. I'm not sure what that equates to but I'm pretty sure I have some more to go in the front if I wanted.

    Post pics of your cap!

    I’m not sure what you mean by exposed metal. A whole truck is metal. There is painted metal exposed with stock tailgate along with mountain hatch.

    There is this cutout but it’s painted metal. Not going to rust or get water in your tailgate
