    Nice plate! Now if yall could convince your DL bureau to change up your MN DLs. A letter and a host of numbers are a PITA to run in NCIC. Florida (le sigh) is just as bad.

    Washington state, I got issues with y'all too. First few letters of your last name, a few numbers, and then then your last first and middle name initials.

    And Missouri and Indiana, your PLATES are the worst to run!!! A police officer and dispatcher will tell y'all are a nightmare.

    Lol, yeah our DL numbers are fucked. I got one of the first when they changed the numbers to the new format 20 some years ago. So mine starts with a A00000.

    Let me know how if that license plate bracket works out. Had something similar but kept catching the winch line on the license plate so I had to modify it.

    Since we sold the RTT and bought a trailer, I decided to keep the bed rack on and make our storage bin more accessible than using the roof rack.

    Cut some 1" square aluminum to size and mounted to rack, then it's an easy attachment of the bin to the bars.

    Maybe it doesn't belong on an SR5 but I think the tri-colour badge adds a little flair to the front .

    Blue is great, but you don’t want a black and blue truck. All beat up. I had blue emblems here and there to compliment the cement color. But now it’s all black and cement. It looks way cleaner. The blue emblems, sell them.

    Custom ballast mounts (don’t think ive seen this done before). At least not like this- no 3m/no drill/clean and out of the way.

    I’ve had these mounts for close to 2 yrs now just too lazy to get it finished but since my headlights were warranty/replaced, I removed my setup prior. Still need to install passenger side but it’s exactly the same (mirrored)

    anyone interested in more photos or a parts list? pretty sure all 3rd gens have this spot available and it doesn’t have to be for a ballast. What about @Mr.PowerTrays, Something you could refine/polish up?

    OME UCA's, Headstrong spacers (I love the ride at current preload so I added these to gain the additional 1" driver and .5" passenger), Rally armor flaps, ARB breather kit and ARB compressor and dash switches installed. Also changed out the gear oil as the 500 mile break in is complete. Time to get back to having fun with this thing.

    I like the contrast between white and black trim pieces. I also have a black valence piece for the front bumper that I'm gonna change out as well.

    B169D990-6A1D-413E-BBDD-72E32F5ACCC5.jpg To begin, I know next to nothing about truck suspension and have some questions that someone here might to willing to answer. I have a ‘18 pro. When loaded down with RTT and dogs and dog boxes it seems to sag a bit. Also, when the RTT is off and I am unloaded I would prefer the back to be raised ever so slightly. If I were to add a leaf between the first and second leafs that would lift the truck a quarter of an inch which I would prefer. Would that provide greater load capacity without the sag I’m experiencing? How might that affect ride quality? Would I need to adjust the shocks and can that even be done? I have OEM Fox shocks. Thanks in advance. B169D990-6A1D-413E-BBDD-72E32F5ACCC5.jpg
