    Which UCAs did you go with? More than likely after you had them replaced the alignment shop moved your tires back in the wheel well. (that's why your are rubbing)
    If you have adjustable UCA's? The shop can try and move your tires forward and set your alignment correctly. (increase the Caster) Then all you would need is some plastic trimming in the front. Looks like you have a 2WD??
    Body mount relocation seems a bit extreme. The cab floor and your pinch weld would be your limiting factors also, so relocating the cab mount might not buy you as much clearance as you may think.
    Removal of the factory body mount decreases the frontal side collision safety of the truck.
    (The companies that sell them need to have some serious disclaimers that state: "it is intended for off-road use ONLY", and other legal jargon, or they open themselves up to huge lawsuits) But that's a different topic.

    Did my first "mechanical" mods, intermittent wiper stalk and seat jackers on the driver side. I'll probably do the passenger side soon. And some fun stuff.

    This is the exact same story as my dad, he upgraded his 1950s tool boxes to basically your same box/table set up a couple months ago and every time I stop over he is just sitting in his garage.

    I can’t wait to start on my new garage, I’m remodeling a house I bought a few months ago, and want to re do my whole set up. I had a great garage before but the temp house I am living in since selling mine is 100% packed with all our furniture/appliances. I can’t even find half of my tools.

    I was juuuust about to link that. Haven't hooked mine up yet (being lazy and bundling this with a tailgate lock install), but I imagine it'll be a game changer.

    Turning off your headlights like someone mentioned works, but nifty little touches like the harness are super cool.

    I love it, makes it so easy. My harness is a little more custom though, I have a trigger to turn on reverse lights, trigger for strobes, meso tt1, and the turn off license lights all in 1 custom harness.

    Kind of digging the tailgate latch lettering. Which of the Reds do y'all think matches closest to the TRD Centercap color?

    Yeah, it seems to be a bit higher than competitors, but you really CANT beat the quality of the product. It looks and feels so damn good. lol

    Thanks for the PSA. I won’t go that route. I think I’ve trimmed all the plastic I could and I beat the pinch weld to high hell. I was also thinking about re-doing the CMC and taking some more metal off. I did it with a friend that welds but neither of us had ever done a CMC. I’m exploring that option. The UCAs I bought aren’t adjustable. They are by Freedom Off Road. I took it back to the alignment shop three times and the guy said that’s the best he could do so I’m stuck with the rub until I figure something out.

    I’d be lucky to get mine scheduled at the local dealership in that time frame. I just had a 4 week wait for the 40k service.

    Tested, verified! Plate lights only come on above DRL (MT). This is perfect for home as I usually turn off the headlamps to keep from pissing off the neighbours when backing in.
    I'm excited to check this upgrade out on the next camping trip.

    That's how I always treated the neighbors too. Had a roommate once, I suggested it to him to turnoff his HLs when they were aimed in the windows across the street. He did, but then forgot to turn them back on. Got pulled over by the law just down the road! lol

    Text conversation with my sales guy at the dealership. He was asking about money down and what loan term I am looking for. Then he asked what % the credit union was offering so that if the dealership's banks didnt' come back with a god number they could tell them that they are trying to beat the CU. Never had that happen before. Maybe it's because I'm buying new for the first time? This is the third vehicle I will have gotten from this same sales person over the last 6 years. hoping they work some magic to help me out because of that.

    Sorry, boring update on what I did for my 3gen today.

    Just brought it home with these installed. Looks nicer than factory leather.

    Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. The red stitching just ties the whole kit together nicely. Enjoy the new new leather, they are so worth it. :thumbsup:
