    I did the same thing, my foam is not as pretty, but it took care of that rattle.

    Another chrome delete experiment under way. And a cable management phone holder idea (boy’s 4R).

    I learned the hard way that this stuff sprays like an airless commercial sprayer, so expect a shit ton of volume and over spray and pull back.

    not done and half the spray is in the atmosphere, but haven’t farmed it yet...

    Not sure if you have a spare rim, but someone on offerup is selling a method 701 for $125, he wants $200 but got him down to $125

    A TRD Off-Road sticker adds a lot to the look. Plus you get an extra 30 hp.264B8D23-5952-4EB6-9FAA-007BAF5E3D48.jpg

    What's the size? 200 is new price. 125 might be reasonable.

    Link below, I just bought one from someone on offer up today for 125$. Two different sellers came thru.

    Check out this item on OfferUp.

    I just couldn’t spend 280$ on a rim (rim + tax) to just have it under the truck. They get trashed down there.

    Shit, sorry about that. I thought it was 17 inch. That what the buyer had said he was sourcing for me. I would have bought it like an idiot

    Certainly can’t speak to durability, but this has time to bake. A tad glossy. We will see....

    Looks like an hour to extend the OEMs if no rebuild -75. Hat: gratis.

    Here’s the droop and up travel, limited by sway bar and bump stops only, for what that’s worth.

    You can buy new foam inserts off eBay. I did to replace the old nasty ugly ones and the new ones work great. I actually have an extra set for the front I think….

    Very expensive and complex shock travel gauge.

    Looks close to maxed out there. Good choices on your kit. I have Camburg but was able to compare them with @jImmegart TC arms recently, I now think they are better designed than my Camburg.

    I won't tell you which one has bigger nuts, don't ask

    The balls actually looked the same size, I had heard TC used bigger ones. The bolt and nut on the TC arms was bigger, the wrenches I used on my arms weren't big enough for those nuts so we needed bigger sockets.

    The TC bolts are 3/4 shaft" Can't remember the head size, 1 1/8 - 1 1/4?

    Have you noticed anything with the sway bar extended links? I bought them but haven’t installed them yet. I need to buy new sway bar bushings first.

    Yes, I noticed increased travel and no bent links. I like mine, I've seen at least one other I like a lot. I think some drop the sway bar, but it seems to me that extended links are the way to go. Mine are 2" ext for a close to 3" front lift.

    I also noticed with extended coilovers, I only had to push the hubs down for install. I'm pretty sure based on past experience, I would have had to disconnect the sway bars at stock length.

    Chrome delete has to be the hardest thing to mod. Body shops tell me plastic and chrome is the hardest to paint. They are right. I’m on my third test product. As a note, adhesive promoter seems to be a must. My grille handled adhesive promoter covered with Rustoleum bed liner rattle can just fine under pressure wash. Next I will try this (pictured) on the mirrors. In the end, best material will go to rear bumper, and blackout will be complete, other than possible reworking on the other areas. Exception: lenses and plates, not legal here.
