    I’ve never even done sycamore, haha I just had a feeling!!!!
    I don’t know what you were rolling on when you did it, but what trails do you recommend? I went last year but took it easy; I’m definitely doing broken arrow, and after that I’m kinda open to whatever, also going to go fast Friday, that was fun, watched @Sunnier get pretty rowdy in a fast turn!

    Sycamore was great. I wish I had something remotely close to sycamore here in KS. Kansas is like 98% privately owned. Closest thing we have is 2.5hrs and it’s still not on par with sycamore.

    Broken Arrow is a must. Slow crawling but love me some red rock trails. The views are so good.

    Cinders is awesome. There is an awesome trail around one of the “volcanoes” in the very back. Great views. Not hard either. 4x4 and lots of pedal.

    The trail to Mormon Lake Lodge we did at night. Grabbed dinner there. Was awesome.

    Let me look and see if I still have the routes saved / other trail names we did.

    Awesome, we’re definitely doing grand falls and maybe “the hill” at night or dusk.
    I know there are other lava tubes near flag, we might try and go there.
    And that sucks about not having much wheeling space where your at now! I always forget how fortunate we are out here with trails and lack of rust……

    I never found any of the reg cab pillars. Mine are SEM painted black. It won’t be a terrible eye soar. The next big item is the seats. They’re beige. Hopefully dark charcoal 05-06 seats pop up soon. I’d prefer them

    They were on backorder when I got my method wheels so bought some from Amazon
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JH1HODY?ie=UTF8

    Running Method 305NV

    Just realized I didn't order extended, Do I need an extended Lug?

    The method rep told me the below

    "Your local 4 Wheel Parts or Discount Tire should have lug kits available for purchase. You need a 12x1.5 extended thread lug with a 60 degree conical seat. Fairly common lug kit."

    Yes. I would go ET. I think discount said they are required to get I think 6 or 7 full
    Rotations on lugs. Mine would not get 6 on non-ET lugs. Maybe if you had extended studs…

    Over the dents? I feel like a suction cup pull would actually pop that 95% of the way out, if not totally?

    I won't post links here due to forum rules, but searching YouTube for BLSilQgDvkA or g30EjsjZrBs will bring up two examples of simple suction cup devices pulling single-crease dents out with ease. Metal naturally wants to go back into its original pressed shape. Often times all it needs is an equal pull of force that pushed it in.

    For buckets, why not those rails and then bolt on some awesome seats? I kinda regret spending big on my oem seats other than the whole bench seat vibe. If I were to do buckets I’d go Lexus full tilt.

    I have yet to find a comfortable aftermarket seat. Factory seats have the issue of no arm rest

    Our Odyssey seats are pretty damn nice. Not sure if they can mate to the slide though. Way better than my Tacoma or Tundra seats comfort-wise. And armrests.

    Also my ‘97 F150 seats were nice too, with armrests I cut off. Did a sub box center console which had a pad on top and served as permanent arm wrest. Perfect height and it thumped.

    I’ve already popped them out as much as I could. Did suction and came from inside… had a PDR dude say he wouldn’t be able to do much more. It’s pushed against the metal rib on the big dent.

    but oh well. It’s all part of the fun. That’s what the truck is for

    I'm a huge advocate of PDR, but there's certain bragging rights I think you inherit with DDP (dildo dent repair).

    Though, it may be like Fight Club, with the first rule and all.

    honestly i was going to hunt for some lexus seats or avalon seats.

    but to this day the most comfortable seat to be is my tacomas buckets. too small for tundra though.

    something like a GS350 or Ls460 seat would be wonderful. but the arm rest is a serious issue.

    unless i take the seat covers off and figure out how to fit the stock arm rests onto the new seat frames.. but damn that would be an expensive fuck up if it didnt turn out right

    It's good
    It's amazing how much rated and lead free fittings add up to. Good thing I did great on the tanks, the plumbing cost is brutal. I am attempting some complex stuff for what was only on-board air. But, oof.
