    Cleaned my rear brakes today. How many of you replace the paper gasket between the drum and axle flange?
    I live in Nevada, so I don’t worry about rust too much, but we do get snow.

    I'd just do a very small smear of anti seize around the hub flange.

    Yeah it’s got the bro lean in the pic but that pic was immediately after install. After driving a bit and getting the suspension settled it’s truly leveled out now. As far as any additional lift, I’ve been debating on what I actually want to do with the bed and if I want to throw a rack on there for overlanding. Then I’ll probably get a new leaf pack on for an inch of lift. But that’s much further down the line when I’m not broke lol

    I bought all the meso customs delete chrome kits. Super easy to do, I’m not a handy man myself but was able to do it all myself took about an hour to do, the hardest part was the vent rings, having to break the glue, and push it out was a little complicated, but not too much. Good luck!

    My kit didn’t have the brass set screw; only mention of a set screw was a self tapping one but there is no hole where the directions said there would be one. I checked, and rechecked, had my wife look after reading the directions and watching their install video.

    great advice on the gasket material! I did not think of that. Thank you.

    We all know if the other driver was paying attention this most likely would not have happened. But it does look to me like you are technically at fault here. They had the right of way and you backed into their path. The parking spot next to you was vacant, nothing was blocking your view. All you had to do was turn your head and check for moving vehicles before backing out.

    Hmmmm, debatable. I can see both sides.

    Man, that rear cross traffic alert system would have been ideal in this situation

    Just a quick tip on ground connection so you don’t have to use the self tapping screw like the instruction said. Just need to replace the ring connector to a bigger diameter…
