    Long time lurker and finally getting around to where I can finally call this a build. So here we are! This truck has gone through a couple iterations and is in process of getting the next phase done. Completely reworking the suspension/camping setup.

    Prior setup:

    Nothing crazy here. This is my first pickup and wanted to keep the pro suspension. Standard Issue pro setup.
    - Coachbuilder TRD Pro kit
    - Total Chaos UCA
    - 35x12.50r17 Nitto Ridge Grappler
    - Fifteen52 Turbomac HD 17x8.5 et0
    - Rago Fab ditch light brackets
    - Baja Designs Squadron Sports


    Second Setup:
    - BDS 7" Lift
    - Icon Progressive AAL
    - Coachbuilder +3 Shackles
    - Max Modular Designs 14" Bed rack
    - Roofnest Condor RTT
    - Dobinsons 4x4 Snorkel
    - Diode Dynamics SS3 Fogs/Ditch
    - Diode Dynamics 42" Light bar in bumper
    - Decked Cargo System

    So I thought I’d be able to do what I wanted with the bigger bracket lift, but my off-road driving style is what I’d call ignorant…. So this bracket lift has got to go. It’s also caused more headache than it’s worth. Was going to get custom length coilovers and rear shocks, but found the limitations really quick so never ended up pushing forward with those.



    Current setup:

    Suspension & Wheels:
      • Front - ADS Racing Shocks 2.5" Coilover Remote Reservoir w/ Adjusters
      • Rear - ADS Racing Shocks 2.5" Triple Bypass
      • ADS 2.125 x 2 air bumps
      • Total Chaos Uniball UCA
      • Total Chaos Cam Tab Gussets
      • Total Chaos Spindle Gussets
      • LC Series Fab Custom Body Mount Relocate
      • Durobumps front bump stops
      • Boss 4x4 Diff Drop
      • Coachbuilder +3 shackle
      • Icon Progressive Add a leaf (removed for stock leafs temporarily)
      • Summit Offroad Dakar 17x9 et0
      • Yokohama Geolandar MT 37x12.50r17

    Exterior:
      • 2019+ OEM TRD Pro LED Headlights
      • 2019+ OEM TRD PRO Grille
      • Rago Fabrication ditch light brackets
      • Cali Raised LED Bed channel stiffeners
      • AL Offroad Trailgate tailgate panel
      • Waterport Day Tank
      • LC Series Fab custom gas tank skid plate
      • LC Series Fab custom rock sliders
      • LC Series Fab custom front bumper
      • US Cargo L track bed Tie downs
      • Bedrug Bed Mat (cut to fit between the L track)

    Interior:

    Lighting & Electrical
      • Baja Designs Squadron Combo Ditch Lights
      • Baja Designs XL Sport Wide Cornering Amber Fog Lights
      • SDHQ Billet Battery Tie Down
      • Odyssey Extreme Group 34r battery
      • Trigger Six Shooter Wireless Controller
      • KC Hilites cyclone rock lights (8)
      • Baja Designs S2 Wide Cornering Chase lights
      • Cali Raised LED Grill Light bar bracket
      • 42" Curved LED Light bar
    Engine & Performance
      • TRD Intake
      • Custom Magnaflow Exhaust
      • Rear Differential breather relocate
      • OEM 38 gallon fuel tank swap

    Update! Rear shocks are here and fronts expected in 1-2 months.

    Rack/tent setup has been sold. Painted the roof black, swapped the third brake light, installed decked system, front bumper cut, window visors, and ditched all the diode dynamics and went to baja designs. IMG_2644.jpgIMG_2902.jpgIMG_2901.jpg

    Eyeballed it and cut it haha. I don’t remember it’s some led all in one unit off Amazon. Works well and matched the black roof lol

    Update:
    With eibach being the hold up on the 3.0 coil springs and a big trip to Moab planned early June I opted to bump down to the 2.5” and add the 2.125x2 air bumps. Springs were originally supposed to arrive last month and they got pushed back to late June according to ADS. Big sad.

    Also ended up snagging the new Summit Offroad Dakars in their machined silver finish.

    Truck gets dropped off first week of May for the fab work! Feel like this whole process has been kicking my ass forever..

    I ordered back in October. Triple bypasses showed up in February and the fronts show up Thursday. I'll have initial thoughts after a shakedown run in a couple weeks and then we're going full send in Moab. Heard nothing but good things so we'll find out.

    Making some progress. BDS lift is officially off. Spindle gussets are done. Cam tab gussets should be done today. Reassemble the front and quick swap with the rear stuff and it should be back on all fours soon. Then we kick off all the fab work!

    I watch this build from afar over on the gram. Looks good! Imma shamelessly steal your front bumper cap cut lines. Looks good, and takes care of the clearance issues!

    Did you just pull the front fender liner altogether, or did you keep some of it in there?
