I said the same thing the other day!:confused:
I think you said it over here when we were doing Marks doors, thus it stuck in the back corner of my mind!

so thank you very much :mad:

UPDATE!

Got my HD Dakar's and N-182 Shocks installed! WOO HOO! The beast is MEGA raked right now. :D Took about 6 1/2 hours total install time. Not too bad in my opinion for someone who is green when it comes to wrenchin'. Glad I did it myself though, I learned a lot and saved some bucks!

886's and Diff Drop coming soon!

Truck is looking s-a-we-e-e-et!

my favorite color toyota puts out!

I can help no problem with the winch! and can tell you what the ARB is suppose to look like after putting it in, but setting it up…clueless!

Now just get them billy's on and your ready to follow me! :D
no one is ready to follow you! I have my doubts about even being able to follow some of your crazy lines. :D My only advantage is I am locked in order to get out of the mud traps you seem to fall in. :slap:

Another Update!

886's and Diff Drop installed, Sway Bar removed. :cool:





Special thanks goes to Rich Freeman of "FREEMAN OFF-ROAD" Liberty, IN.

He was the brains of the install, I just assisted and took notes. :D

NwiTACO...you rolling with or without the sway bar? If without, how do you like it? So far I'm not sold on it yet, but I plan on giving it some time.
