    Well gents, it is done. My Taco has been traded for this 2010 FJ Cruiser. And while I'll miss my Taco, this FJ is sweet ace!

    I finally replaced my door handle. Almost a month and a half with a hole in my door. Good thing no one knew the schematics of the door lock and jacked my truck. I waited on a part from a friend of a friend and got let down. Went to a local shop, bought the handle, and in the same hour installed the handle and the panel back on. A month for less than an hour of work.

    :facepalm:

    Once I saw it and drove it, I just had to. I've already got a lift and tires picked out for it, but that'll have to wait til after the wedding.

    Raised my kings a couple more inches. What a bitch and a half. I had to use a spring compressor and pound the piss out of a harbor freight punch to get any movement out of the collar. No way could you do it easily on the truck.

    I am sure you know it is a 2 piece collar. I was looking at adding a few to my Kings but have not done 8th yet. King is only 3 to 4 miles away from me so I may just have them do it.

    ...too much shit to list.
    Sounds like the collar is crossthreaded. It happens with Kings if you loosen the allen lock key too much. My 10 year old son can adjust mine as long as the collar is on the threads correctly.

    Ok :). The SC was a real fun install. Just make sure you have all the correct hardware, gaskets, and vacuum hoses/connectors. Install is a breeze then. I would honestly recommend installing a wideband first and seeing how your truck operates without the SC. Then install the SC and see how bad it leans out. Then install the urd 7th injector kit and you will have a good starting point for tuning. That's where the fun begins :D.

    They have been like this since the day I bought them brand new. I tried to crank them up while on the truck back then and broke 2 punches that king provided before I got half a turn. I finally decided to pull them off and do it this way. Maybe they came cross threaded but I checked and they look pretty normal.

    The one in the vid sounds like that, or maybe ice being crushed in a blender? My trans sounds fine except for this running liquidy sound it makes in reverse, something I assume is normal. Also feels tight and shifts very quickly, I guess that's why I was under the impression of good build quality.

    Probably worthless to contact king at this point. I didn't think it should have been that tough, but I had no clue.

    I might contact downsouth motorsports first. I think I've heard that sometimes the build the kings themselves or something.
