    Gears, rear arb, CSF rad, tb/wp and tire clearance…I’ll stay busy! Thankfully it’ll only be high 90’s for the next 2+ months, perfect wrenching weather! :bananadead:

    What tire size are you trying to fit? Ill be watching vicariously through you as i wanna do something similar on mine in the next year or so. 4:88 gears, 33s, rear locker and probably new suspension by then.

    Gas is down to $3.70 ish outside of town and around $4.20 near my house! I don't get the huge swings from place to place. I think gas stations are gouging us.

    Cocktail? wuts innayer?
    Any first gen trying to fit 33's or 35's are going to have clearance issues. Spacers will keep you off the frame, but there's no escaping that rub near the body mount at the rear of the tire without some persuasive bodywork by hammer and grinder (says the guy with an AC on 35" tires)
    ^This guy gets it
    Also should be mentioned that a slight rub at ride height in a parking lot, can be a rough chomp-chomp when you go 'full stuff' and test out your bumpstops
    Shoulda bought mine a couple months ago when i offered:notsure: Motive 4.88's..

    There are at least two AC people on here who've stated they aren't w/33s, @FirstGenVol is one of them IIRC. Just rubbing frame at full lock in reverse.

    It's pronounced "rad, yo" :rofl:

    I don't know for sure yet for my own rig as I haven't driven it with anything resembling a lift yet.

    It's good
    Swapped the TC 6" drop shackles for the AG 4" shackles, effectively putting some rake back. After finding some level ground I was 1" higher in the rear without too much weight back there before the swap. I didn't go back to the level spot, but I should be 1 3/4" higher in the rear now. Looks good and the shocks look like they are sitting about middle shaft which is cool.

    I literally just tubbed my driver's side cab corner this past Friday. Took a buddy and I 8 hours just for one side, granted we did a lot of sitting, drinking water and figurin' (and a little firefighting when it came to sparks in the interior lol)
    Looking back, I didn't cut enough so I'll have to enjoy some hammer time if I ever go to 35s. Passenger side is mysteriously fitting without any cutting aside from minor pinch weld hammer/trim.

    Sucks for you. Double Cab is a totally different beast. Your fault for choosing the inferior cab type. :rofl:

    So, I'd already ordered this once, and cancelled before shipping because I just wasn't sure. Bit the bullet again, but added UCA this time. It's my fault they're out of stock, guess I got the last one....

    Yup. Not who I chose last time. I was a little peeved that they force you to buy some form of rear lift last time, but with tax and shipping, came out cheaper than previous.

    I wasn't going to order UCA, but I had the extra slush so I figured WTF.

    Which means I'll probably just order OEM UBJ too, because, if I'm in there, may as well, right?

    I'll probably do the UCA later, though. I dunno.

    Have not been able to see it in person (damn night shifts). Picking it up tomorrow. I am told only very minor rub on plastic flare at rear of front fender well when at full lock. Easily correctable. Very happy so far - will post more tomorrow.
