    Stars are always toward the front. The one pictured should go on the other side of the truck.

    Starting over with the T4R
    My bet is that the seller made both sides the same way. Sounds like the driver side on @CruisD64 is probably facing the correct way but the passenger side had the sticky on the wrong side and there was no other way to install.

    I thought about going with the small flags like that but ended up with one big one on the hood.

    Thanks

    So you feel the drive to be smoother ? Or what specifically got better?

    Waaayyyy smoother. I thought I had blown out a recently replaced bearing with how loud and obvious the vibrations where but once we got it up on the lift we found the shot bushings. Steering is tighter and smoother with no vibrations!! Wish I would have done it long ago.

    Ok... This may be a dumb question. But I try and keep my distance from transmissions.

    Getting ready to attempt a shift kit install. Trans is not in the truck.

    Any reason I should not flip the trans upside down so I can work on it?

    20190208_171238.jpg Probably should have waited for the new rear shock relocate to be installed before selling the rear shocks and cutting the bed cage off but now I'm one step closer to a new rear end and having bed space again. Wish I hadn't sold the stock shocks because now I gotta drive with no rear shocks to get the new kit installed

    Nah, out of all the vehicles I have owned (at least a dozen), only two have been automatic: 1966 Chevy Caprice (2-speed powerglide, power steering, NO POWER BRAKES WTF) and my 2003 double cab. For the traveling and exploring I do, automatic is way easier to deal with than a manual. I would consider doing a 5 speed swap from a Tundra/Land Cruiser before a 5-speed manual swap. Without double or triple transfer cases, automatic is way smoother on intermittent rocky/technical bits than manual.

    I upgraded my speakers over a year and a half ago but kept the stock stereo. Today I installed a new SONY head unit and WOW. It's better than night and day. It's like the surface of the sun compared to the Mariana Trench.

    Nice! Apple CarPlay? How do you like that? Been waiting for the prices to go down before pulling the trigger on one. Worth it?
