    What did you do for prep. I want to get rid of the chrome on my mirrors as well but I'm not sure of what is best for prep work. TIA

    Calling them the same is equal to saying a Tacoma and Chevy are the same thing.

    The part shackle is made up from a Bell and pin.

    Great fun. Just finished power steering fluid change for my third and it turns and sounds great. No more whining. What a pain in my ass though. Flushed entire system this time. Pulled hoses off on bottom and drained. Then pulled the pulley and resevoir off to hose it out with brake clean. Now I can look through the screen. :thumbsup:

    You will very likely need to remove the front mud flaps, trim plastic, beat back the pinch-weld on the firewall, and possibly still rub the frame at full lock/stuff.

    No more guard on the windshield washer tank. It's what happened to mine. And then I had to trim the splash guard and flair on the rear of fenders. Had I gone with 8 or 9" wide I may not have had ether problem.

    Could use 1.5" wheel spacers and them do the wheels and trim the heck out of it and beat in the pinch weld.

    Thanks you guys so maybe a 235/85r16 would be my best bet with out cutting and beating . Any recommendations on the tire size / brand would be awesome i do have a set of 1.5 spacers that I could use. Sorry to be a noob I don’t want to mess on trying to fit a bigger tire on the wip:)

    Started the truck for the first time in about a week, couple of nights of hard freeze, and i notice a few drops under the truck. Upon further inspection, i think my rack and pinion is leaking, alot. Hopefully itll be okay for a bit. Wont be able to get to a shop for two-weeks.
    Y'all think ill be ok??

    I'm running 265/75/16 on mine. Only slight rub on my resis for front shocks. That's if I turn all the way hold it and stuff the tire up in the fender all the way

    I would think so if it's only drips. If it's a big puddle I would worry. Mine just took a little over a quart of fluid after I drained the system. Just keep an eye on it. You'll be fine.
