    Mine are completely blacked out. I think gunmetal would look good and give some contrast. I def wouldn't do white on your truck but it's up to you

    Cute?! Haha fine :D

    Not meaning to beat a dead horse but I'd agree that the logic is a bit odd. Mine is a DD as well and I still have full length :notsure:

    For future help, just say you got a really sweet deal on them that you couldn't pass up even though they are the wrong size. :D

    I just posted a few in my build thread if you want to check them out!

    I'm so torn on how I feel about them.. I LOVE them when they are on, I just wish they weren't neon yellow when they are off. Hoping it grows on me more

    I cleaned and painted my drums since i had them off checking my brake shoes and adjusting the E-brake. Then found some play in the inner tie rods up front so looks like that will be the next project on the list.

    wiring my rock lights I saw grease everyplace under the truck, I got to the wheel well lights and saw my cv ripped. So I got to 4 places and nothing. All day something was squawking just like my $4100 oops a month ago lower ball joint. I pull in the garage 2" lip slab to driveway then a 6" wide 1/2" drainage deep U in the floor, I heard and felt a pop LOUD. I get out and look (nothing) turn the wheel torquing the rear with all 3 pedals and 2 feet the front end falls. Tire stuffed wheel well. LBJ just popped. I get the axle and ball joint done. I impact everything and i never have an issue. Today I should have looked at the level and how much pressure I was regulating (175psi) on stage level (5 out of 5) stages. I blast it all together. Put 4 LBJ to knuckle bolts in, get 3 started, zippp, zippp, zipp.....zzzzzSNAP. 1100ftlbs too a 14mm M10-1.25-30mm is always bad. Bolt was threaded into the knuckle. I try easy outs, heat oxy/ace and air hammer trying to spin it with a pick.
    So I pull the knuckle out and the upper wouldn't budge after full blows of impacts all 4 of them. 4 foot breaker ball with 3ft pipe NOTHING. I call autozone for an UCA and ball joint combo they have it. Send some one to get it and food/beer. Sawzall the bolts. good to go. Drill went sideways so I welded nut to bolt and sealed the deal. Threw it all back together and MINT. Put the diff drop on while i was at it

    Lubed my belts, their still squealing like a mofo when I start the taco up. Brand new replaced all of them when I did the water pump. Made sure they are all lined up perfectly. I mean doesnt matter much as the squealing stops about 1 min after the truck warms up but my OCD gets the better of me. No buildup of rust on my pulleys either....any ideas? Ill post some pics tomorrow.

    If I didn't have sliders with kickouts that went all the way to the fender, mine would be destroyed.
