    well yes the sumo bumps had a gap with the ome53a bolts (3/8”-1/2”) and the stock bolts (1/8”-1/4”)

    the ome53a had gaps (1/8”-1/4”) on Stock bumps which obviously were flat with stock bolts so that takes the sumos out of the equation (in this instance) and leads to ome bolts as an issue straight out the gate.

    Sumos are its own issue I haven’t addressed yet. In fact if you look at any sumos for sale and the pictures provided by seller you’ll notice paint flaked on the edges of the brackets (where the bolts rest) because that’s where the bolts rest/make contact and they don’t actually sit completely flat (my strong hypothesis). I’d image the bracket is the same as 2nd gen (if not universal) which would have the same issue. Now if it’s a big deal, I don’t know- the only info I could find was specifically stating bolts need to be flat on leafs or completely wrap the axle. Then sumos “engineer” gives ok to notch the brackets. Well, question, why wouldn’t you engineer the bracket a factory fit. Despite, I still plan on installing the sumos but 1st need to find bolts (which I do have on the way but the storm changed delivery from fri. To maybe tomorrow). I’d had hoped to install prior to a 6 hr dr to Orlando Thursday

    Not looking forward to it. Coworker cut his and put them in reversed when he did his. Sounds like we have a tech off on Friday so I may go in early and use his lift to do the arms and play around with preload on the 5100’s and get rid of the big spacers up top.

    Following Nitori's OEM SR Foglight Mod (pre-wired) to get the truck ready for a shop to install/aim SS3 Sport fogs and Morimoto XB Gen2 later this week. No shop was willing to take out the airbag and remove the wheel to swap the switch, so I took care of that tonight. Made a short post to add some more info to Nitori's instructions if anyone is interested or thinking of doing it themselves. The install was actually really simple, the "hardest" part for me was being sure the airbag was safely removed/handled since it's my first time doing that.

    Comparison of factory switch from the SX trim vs. the part specified in the instructions:

    It will be a little easier with a lift for sure. I did mine in my garage with the truck on Jack stands. I ended up putting a long punch through the other side of the control arm and forced the bolt past the body. It was tight even though I had manipulated the sheet metal. I thought about reversing it but I muscled through putting it back the hard way.

    Yes, you would think if it were an application specific part it would work with the factory u-bolts or even the Headstrong u-bolts which pair perfect with the factory bumps. Hope your order arrives in time for your trip. Let me know how it works out. Wish you the best! :cheers:

    I also have this setup. Literally set (10 min?) and forget. The great thing about the Garmin Mini is it’ll recognize when you change your speed abruptly and save those files. The rest auto-write over each other. Downloading video through the app takes a bit however hopefully you don’t have to use that feature much.

    Since it was finally not :censored: freezing out, it got a much needed, and long overdue, bath tonight. It's nice having all the road salt off of it.

    Just to clarify for me the headstrong bolts do not pair perfect with factory bumps (the gap I mentioned). But yes the same goes for the sumo bracket design.

    •I did retorque/check the ubolts after 300miles of the aal install.
    •Finally got my vled replacements, delayed by the storm, (this is why I will always go back to vled) warranty is top notch and bulbs are bright af. And they don’t look like a bulb filled with just leds all over.

    •bought a NOCO GB40 on Amazon for 75$ (lowest I’ve seen it) and case. Any reason to keep jumper cables in the truck anymore?
    •bought 2 white owl camping pillows to keep in the truck for the girls on longer trips

    trying to get together as much stuff I can to prepare in limited time. Looks like I’ll start buying and modding more when I get back to prepare for the next time. Goal is to make things more comfortable on longer trips with minimal space (ie compressible pillows/blankets), looking into portable frig (iceco jp30), bed storage/layout. Nothing too crazy, just a days worth
