    not at all. Just a little scuffing to help the paint stick. I also used a paint and primer in one can so that may also help.

    You will not need aftermarket tie rods, I would recommend setting all 4 alignment cams in the neutral position for both camber and castor (head of the bolt in the most downward position) and get it to the alignment shop Im confident they will have no issues getting it into spec. Also make sure that you are not judging or trying to set your alignment at full droop. If you have any further issues or questions feel free to reach out to our sales team at 619-944-8913 or sales@dirtkingfabrication.com and we thank you for your support!

    Installed the Alpine KTA-450 Powerpack this weekend. Huge improvement to overall power, clarity, and bass. For ~$225 I think it's well worth it if you can't or don't want to spend $1200 on a new head unit.

    Can you tell me more about this? Just an amplifier? did you upgrade your speakers as well? Also, did you mount it behind the head unit somewhere? Final question on the head unit, does it have RCA connectors? Thinking of adding a forward facing thermal camera, but it needs RCA jacks to connect to the head unit. Just curious since you pulled it out.

    Nothing huge but it makes me happy. Since I de-stickered the truck I still wanted a little TRD branding and it keeps in theme with the vintage color pallette I've been using for accessories

    Good call man! I'll upgrade my tape if I go that route.

    Now I'm considering finding some sort of LED strip that can utilize the track that's on the underside of my tent between the tent mounts. o_O

    Over the weekend I added the anytime camera mod (probably one of my favorite mods to date!) and added the @state48overland State 48 Overland Differential Breather & Relocation Kit. It was really easy, I think the hardest part was removing the rear wheel well liner to be able to make the connection at the fuel filler bezel. No real pics to post on these two.

    Perfect, was hoping it was for sale somewhere. I'll stalk it for a while telling myself I don't need it before I purchase it in a few weeks :rofl:

    How's your front camera quality? Im kind of disappointed in mine, it like 480p or something. Would you mind posting a picture of the front camera quality?

    is like a youtuber will say a product is bad when is send to them for free.
    even if they say is not sponsor but they got the shit for free is sponsor. depends on the youtuber integrity but most are sellouts.

    I'll try and get one here in a bit. It seems to be on par with the rear camera. The Amazon specs for the camera (I'm assuming it's the same one) say 720. I believe the issue is with the resolution of the factory display (lots of threads discussing this).

    did you use the nakita that usually comes with the kit? I'm pleased with mine, at least as good as the rear cam
