    Question for you. I just installed my Fox (same as yours) but mine didn't come with any preload. Do you know how much lift you have and what your preload setting are?

    I’m not sure of the exact detail on preload. I bought them used. I do know they were set for 2-2.5 with bumper and winch. They are on 650 spring. I have a tube bumper with no winch. I’m hoping to achieve the 2-2.5 lift if not I’ll have to adjust the preload.

    Would you mind taking a measurement of how much threads you have showing? That should give me a little bit of a gauge of where to start.

    Driver side has 8 threads showing.
    Passenger side has 7 threads showing.
    FYI this is on a 1st gen sequoia.

    What day is it? Getting very close. Everything is welded, prepped and ready for OSPHO after I finish eating something. Paint First thing in the morning.
    This damn Upper airbag mount took me the better part of a day and a half. Long story short I kind of designed myself into a corner. Stoked how it worked out though!

    I'll go into detail on my build thread when I get everything wrapped up.

    That's f'n art. Where the fuck were you when I bagged any vehicle I ever owned? Shit I'd had stabbed someone to have access to such. Love it.

    Any concerns about water puddling in the valley of that airbag pocket? I know, it's Texas, but is it worth drilling a drain on each side?

    Anyone in the Houston area? I just moved to league city and need to get these damn rear shocks off. I have the 5100’s ready to go on but can’t get passenger side nut off. I can bring beer! Or whatever choice drink

    I might be able to help you. I get off at 2am haha. I'm working the hospital in Webster now. So I'm probably closer here than I would be from home. Not that's it's much further away.
    Otherwise I could probably help you next week. PM me.

    It's not bad, but Frank's or Crystal are better IMO.
    I'd have expected NC to be all about the Tabasco

    Not sure why i thought it was east coast.
    Louisiana hot sauce is good too.
    Crystal is still better.
