    Thank you both for the complement. It's been a great truck. The guy I bought it from is impressed with how it looks now compared to when I got it.

    @FirstGenVol I have mixed feelings about the MTs. They've been pretty great in snow, mud, and dirt. They're not too loud and are really durable. We have a lot of rocks on dirt roads and trails. But I can't help but wonder about a non E-rated tire and thinking the ride would be smoother.

    What air pressure are you running in your tires?
    Mine are ~35psi and don't ride poorly at all. E-rated Coopers in an AC just like yours.

    You think it looks low? Rear shocks haven’t been done but they don’t add height. New leafs are in. Maybe I didn’t spec enough lift?

    On a note unrelated to what I got done to the Tundra today but totally related to the post I'm quoting, looks like my friend above was run up on gang/racketeering charges this week. https://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/at...arrested-buckhead/76BJUDSW2REPNNEUCBFJNGPNBI/

    Meanwhile, totally related to the Tundra, while driving the kids to school this AM, I made a point of engaging 4HI a couple of times for some longer straight legs of the trip. I noticed something I've never noticed before.

    If I disengage 4HI while giving at least some gas, it disengages smooth as butter.
    If I disengage 4HI while coasting or braking, I get a very noticeable *clunk*.

    It's possible this is completely normal and I've never noticed it before because I'm typically not disengaging below 1k RPM? Anyway, thought it was worth mentioning here in case there was something to look into.

    My 4Hi engages and disengages smoothly, but I generally engage/disengage under no load, but in gear.
    I don't like the idea of engaging or disengaging under a load, so I've never tried.

    Engage is seamless for me whether I'm accelerating or coasting.
    Disengage is seamless if I'm holding throttle or accelerating, but clunks if I'm coasting.

    I'm not sure what I could possibly test on this to see if there's something noteworthy to deal with.

    Maybe it’s the general direction the gears are cut. Whether your accelerating or decelerating, there’s a load on the gears. Load from engine power applied, or load from friction / drag from the vehicle weight when coasting. Mine is a crap shoot. Sometimes smooth as silk. Sometimes I get a noticeable clunk. Hasn’t let me down in 17 years though…

    At jambo, i was in traffic, and both axles had to climb at the same time, well, back tires just spun, but i was in a hole, so i didnt have room to properly engage 4hi, but when it kicked in i got an alarming clunk. No damage, everything still works fine, but i think that was the first time its engaged under load. Gonna do my best not to let it happen again.

    Definitely want both axles spinning at the same rate when engaging. Like rev matching a manual transmission shift so the gears mesh smoothly together.

    If you have your original remote, the AJT cases for them are pretty nice.

    Thanks for the responses. The AJT ones look cool but are a little bulky, plus I was excited at the prospect of a key/fob combo unit vs separate ones like I have now. Anyone know of one like that which is compatible with an 05 AC?

    I'm running 35 front/rear also. It's not terrible, but I can't help but wonder if the ride would be smoother with a softer tire. It probably wouldn't be noticeable. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

    The ride on mine has gotten better as they've started to wear in. Mine went on in January.
    To be 100% fair, IDK how much air is in them right now. We set them at 35 when they were mounted and I haven't checked them since. Brand new tires, wheels, stems. MFers better still be at 35. :D

    No doubt. But at this point do you really want to know.
    Mine aren't very worn since my truck doesn't see much mileage, and probably less now since it's warming up and I can ride my bike around town. Or at least it was warm enough to ride my bike on Friday, and then it snowed 3 inches yesterday.

    Good grief. Snow in May? I'd be spicy.

    Do your MTB trails shut down as soon as it gets wet? They do that shit here and it makes me want to just sell the fucking bike. Our trails are only open a few months a year. Shit is whack.

    Ya not that abnormal. Although it's been a cold and snowy spring.
    People usually don't ride the trails if it's too muddy, but a little rain usually soaks in pretty fast. Especially later in the summer. Most of our trails are still closed cuz of snow cover.

    It's so strange to me that MTB trails ever close for anything other than a race or trail maintenance.
