    Lol, yeah it does seem off. So I finished it at night and did not really look at it that closely since it's been installed. After looking at it again (thanks for asking for pics!), it does not look like it's installed correctly. As for if it was installed properly, I'm guessing not since I did it myself :D It looks like it's rotated upwards, the light bar is not level from the front to the rear of the truck.

    The visible part of the bumper bolts on using 4 bolts and the holes allow adjustment, I'm going to try loosening it up and adjusting it. I will update once I've checked it out.

    TRD emlems, tinted windows, OEM running boards, AVS vent shades, RMAS upgrade, LED lights in front and rear, interior LED light upgrade, LED lighting in bed, touch control dash mount for LED lighting, auxillary 12v and USB lacks in bed, replace all speakers with Infinity brand, custom tweeter mod with Bose...
    I have been sound deadening each panel as I removed them for some kind of mod so the task is tackled in sections. I did install the same speakers all around but 6x9 Infinitys in the front. I found the sound was improved drastically after the sound deadening with this model of Infinity. Also, working on amplification(slow project for me due to complexity and time constraints). Looking forward to seeing your 5 channel amplification install posted.

    Took advantage of the Black Friday 20% off deal to score a Meso gift card. Here’s to hoping the Total Tail Lights will be released again soon. @MESO

    So......last night I ordered side protecting led pods, low profile ditch light brackets, dual wiring harness, oem style ditch light switch, oem style switch panel and a bolt on relay holder from Caliraised. Also ordered the driveshaft carrier bearing drop kit and Eibach pro truck lift system assembled from Wheelers Offroad. I'm waiting on Headstrong to get their 3 leaf aal back in stock. Also stopped by Advanced Auto Parts today and picked up hose for the rear differential breather relocation. Already had the breather and union but all the auto parts stores were out of hose but recently restocked. Now I just have to wait for everything to arrive and to get my truck back from the shop. Latest update I received today said it should be ready by 12/9.
    :annoyed:

    Would you pay extra for some Kentucky blue accents in the tail lights? Would match what else you have going on.

    Has anyone actually used those Demon Brackets to get pulled out, and if so, how did they perform? No doubt they look good with some shackles, but I saw some other posts questioning how well the brackets would hold up in a recovery situation...not that the OEM hooks are all that great either.

    Alright, update time, yes! They were not installed properly (go me!). I loosened them up and realized I had gone up over the lip of the bumper when fitting them and tightened it down like that. It was a long install, basically because I was afraid of breaking things so I went very slowly and thus was pretty done by the end. Anyway, long story longer, I've adjusted the fit and it is MUCH better now, chalk it up to user error.

    Hahaha. Thank you for the effort anyways man, I appreciate it, and I’m right there with you. Still lookin for a picture of that finicky connector. I wish the wiring and wire protection was a bit more heavy duty on those tiny connectors.
