    Thanks for the pics. I'll be doing something similar once I get new tires.

    I've had them on over a month now with a fair amount of driving through mud and gravel. They've held up well so far. I still take some gravel hits on the lower doors, but it's much better than the stock flaps.

    Chopped my exhaust yesterday so that it dumps just past the final hanger, right next to the spare. Now I don’t have to mess with aligning the tail pipe so that it’s level, and no worries about bashing the tail pipe when off road.

    Thanks to @BlueBottle for the idea.

    Replaced all four rotors and sets of pads. Just went with standard rotors by Centric and LTS pads by Hawk. Rears are a piece of cake to do. Fronts are a little trickier because of the 4 pistons instead of 2 on the rears. The old pads and rotors looked like they had some good life yet. Replacing the fronts took care of a popping and clicking noise that I’ve been trying to diagnose for the last month.

    Now, just one more week for the Nitro 4.88 install.

    How have I not commented on this build yet?!? Hell of a job on your ride @UTTundra. I'm surprised you're not planning on going to the ADS 3.0's somewhere down the road, have heard good things about them on this site.

    Thanks! ADS 3.0's or a secondary bypass up front are definitely being considered. The 2.5's I have now have been great. Just need some tunability on them now (I didn't get the clickers on the reservoirs).

    3 months of waiting, they could at least have given me the proper hardware, haha. Oh well. All's well that end's well. Thanks for the help again.

    I think us N-Fab guys have one of the best looking bumpers you can get off the shelf.

    Haha! The week I brought mine home 4 years ago, and older lady came up to me with an ear to ear grin telling me how beautiful my truck was. She was really nice. But I think that might be one of those times you don't want them to drop.

    Fair enough, kinda surprised there aren’t more guys running the ADS 3.0 setup on here. Only two guys come to mind. I figure if there’s ever a need to upgrade from what I have now, the only place to go is to 3.0’s in front and bypasses w/Deavers in the rear.

    I think there are at least two other guys that have ADS 3.0's on order in the last week. Now's a great time to upgrade with the ADS+Deaver group buy going on. Probably won't get another discount like that for a long time.

    Yeah, I forgot about that GB. They generally only run 1 a year. I just don’t off-road enough at this point to warrant it, especially with my setup only being 4 months old.

    Added some Spyder headlights with Toytec 35W HID kit and some Cali Raised brackets with side shooter ditch lights. Illumination game strong.

    Yup, just took an angle grinder with to it. Had to do some clean up with a grinding wheel to even out the cut. Personally, I like the look of no tailpipe sticking out, and just one less thing to worry about bashing. Go for it!

    I started looking at the HID kit last night, will be looking forward to your review on them. They come with the HID bulbs don’t they? And @smslavin dont you have the 55W kit?

    Also, when you use the ditch lights, I’d love to know what you think of the lights themselves.
