    This was a few months ago just kept forgetting to post pics up in here. Now longer part of the RTT crowd, looking forward to many more mods and camping trips with this new setup!

    looks like your rear suspension is doing an admirable job with the weight, how much of a difference was there between the two setups?

    Are you happy with the current suspension?

    When there isn't anything back there it's fine, but once I'm loaded up for camping it's not the best. I think maybe 500 more when all said and done. 2 of the biggest things of need going forward are a new custom leaf pack and a re-gear (which has been on the list for a minute but this has now been pushed up the list).

    Yeah been there. IIRC got the last Denso at a high price locally instead of waiting for shipping from RA, but saw these Toy MVPs this time so checked it out.

    Thanks man!

    I have a set of halos/angel eyes I'm excited to instal, but I'm a little hesitant to crack open the new e-codes. The integrated turns in the halos would allow me to mess w the lower bumper a little more:D

    Almost forgot about the rear proportioning valve bracket to account for the lift... 3 years after the fact.

    Night and day difference along with properly adjusted rear brakes. If you haven't done it - do it. This was from BAMF.

    Got a 3D printer recently so I redesigned my drawer lock with a rack and pinion. All the off the shelf "cabinet locks" I could find just seemed too chintzy and I didn't like the idea of a locking handle

    Looks awesome

    I'm guessing a burnt exhaust valve

    Actually, the valve seals where starting to give you white smoke. And a leak down test showed the valve needed some touching up.

    I really thought it was a burnt valve since the valves where never adjusted. But so far so good.
