    Best place IMO. two on the drivers side is just too much weight fr that side since there is already too much.

    I even have 4.56 gears from the factory but my truck just didn't like the 33" tires. Maybe it's the 2.7L engine.

    Swapped out the Philips X-treme Power bulbs for Philips CrystalVision Ultra bulbs :)

    It appears that they are just a tad brighter than the X-tremes and noticeably whiter (less of the yellowish output). Might go take it out for a drive tonight to see how they are when driving.

    This photo really doesn't help at all but oh well :p

    01 4x4 standard cab
    What have I done this wk end, Hmm. Well this is my 2nd post so a quick background; live in extreme southeastern Ky, appalachian mounains, old strip mines auger and timber rds. Truck is a 2001 standard cab 2.7l 4x4 31x10.50's, daily driver with 270k. Leafs were broken to he point they were pointing pretty low down so I figured the truck was due for some upgrades and my taxes came so I ordered some 882 OEM front coils and some alcan 8 leaf packs with some rough countrys to go with them both. I also ran up on a deal while visiting my dad in TN on a nice 60/40 split bench seat so I picked that up to. This was the wk end, I made arangements for a long one. I took fri and mon off, I had my mech all set to put up a closed sighn on sat and spend the day on my truck. I could test it out today (sunday) and any adjustments could be made on monday. I was going to switch out the seats on friday so I would have them in for my 1st ride in the new set up. I pressure washed the 60/40 wednesday evening after work figuring I could cover them with plastic if they were not dry by sat morning, dive them to the garage and the dry sat. Fri, took out the bench and put in the /40, upper seat works fine, lower won't move forward or back unless you reach under and work the left side of the release. No big problem, missing cable, this is not my first toyota, small prob, installed it anyway, I'll fix that later. Installed the 60, a little more difficult because the bolt holes came out close to some lines but not terrible, lower seat works fine but upper seat is locked in a straight up position will lean forward but is difficult and req a couple of tries. Can't drive sitting straight up, heads o close to top of cab for where I planned on going on Sunday. Out with the 60/40 and back in with the bench for the trip to the garage. I spend sat working on my seats with a bi-hourly trip to the garage to check on the progress of the suspension install, 8am truck is in garage I start on seats, by 10 I have passengers seat fixed (robbed the cable from an old set of carrola bucket seats I have) and they have the drivers side front almost done; Noon I have the problem with the drivers seat diag, two missing bolts in the lt side. One in the seat to rail bracket and one in the hinge connecting the upper seatto the hinge. This caused the seat to spead to the point that the bar going from the left to rt sides controls was disengaging, back to the garage, left side is almost done but needs inner tie rod. To the parts store. 1pm 80 bucks poorer but there finishing the front and telling me the rear won't take as long. Back to my seats, I rob the carrolla buckes again for a couple of bolts and spend the next couple of hours adjusing and tweeking until I get the rod placed in the rt holes and tighten the bolts pressure wash the seats and set them in the garage to dry figuring I'll change them next wk end. 3pm I get the call, old front spring hanger bolt broke on the last leaf, all the auo pars sores in e ky close at 20 0r 230 0n sat. Most of my buddies wen to Bristol for the race today but I said no, no to free ticket, no to free rides, all to go 4 wheelin in my new settup. Sorry for the long whiny post but I diiapointed and borred, I could use a little pitty as well. Maybe I'll go out to the garage and sit in my new seats, even if I do get a wet ---

    Set up the canopy for lunch at work yesterday (took 5 min.). I wanted to see how it would hold up under the windy conditions. It worked great and stayed up for 9 hrs. I got to hide behinde my truck and sit looking at the mountains rather than the parking lot, a much better view IMO

    Do you have manual hubs on your rear wheels? Or do the center caps just look like manual hubs?
