    Got LR UCA's in the mail yesterday, installed today. Installation was easy except for the long uca bolt, had to bend the fender wall to get it out on both sides.

    Great! Thanks for the pic, I kind of like the rake look. I want a 2.75" lift so I hope it doesn't settle too much lol. You have 265/70r16 tires correct?

    Thanks. I think if you set your billies to .85 instead of 0 you'll get either 2.75 or 3 in the front, I'm not sure so i'd look more into that. And yes i have the stock 265/70r16 tires.

    Got the recall done on the seat belts for the Access Cabs, also ordered the parts for the diff breather mod while i was there. I have read a few different things about the size of the fuel line needed. Can anyone give a definite answer on what size fuel line to get to do this mod? Also patiently awaiting the delivery of my Ultraguage from the group buy, should have that installed this weekend sometime.

    Got my Ultragauge in last night and got it all hooked up today, still gotta play with it and figure it out.

    Then went and found a trail just outside Christiansburg, not too long but fun. Had to take a few different lines to get through some icy parts on my stock tires but overall no problems.

    I did manage to get this pic though
