    i like those roof lights. Drilled and sealed? I dont really ‘chrome’ unless valhalla calls. But you, sir, need towing mirrors. I bet tundras could fit 18” or so of mirror stretch. Give them cummins db’s a run for their money.

    Nice, I think you'll enjoy the peace of mind with some new springs.

    Yes, I ended up just a bit over 23" from hub center to fender. Mine is 2WD, not sure how different your numbers will end up since you have a 4WD. Keep us posted on how it all works out.

    Dropped the truck off at the body shop today to get this mess taken care of. PO went nuts with the ratchet straps all along the C-channel next to the cab.

    Hmm I’ll bite.
    Not my taste but if you like it go for it!

    Not sure there’s any other front end accessories you could add since you’ve pretty much got the whole gamut there!

    That's how much lift I got after install. Also with camper shell, 4 bikes and a bunch of camping gear, it didn't squat at all. I'm saving my pennies to get the same ones for the DC.

    I still suffer from Sasquatch Anxiety to this day. I remember hearing about this Bigfoot and then they showed that footage from up near Marbles home town. The one where he is walking through the woods. Anyways, I developed a long term Night Sleep Anxiety Disorder after seeing this.

    Because I don’t take medicines, its an ailment that will probably be with me until going to see JC.

    My old lady HATES when I even bring up Sasquatch, I usually get hit when I bring it up camping or even off roading. I always say that’s why I put the light bars on the 4runner.......the On/Off button inside even has Sassy on it!!!

    This is a good point. The 2wd and 4wd Rear Springs have a different Spec from factory. Seems the 2wd OEM Springs are prone to sag due to slight differences in leaf thickness and arch geometry.

    I wonder how much the HD 4wd Springs will raise the rear? My OEM Leafs still hold the rear high on mine even with fairly occasional use of tow/haul.

    Also, I wonder how much your truck rear would lift if you had purchased the 4wd Leafs?

    I wonder if most of your lift is from correcting the OEM sag vs. the thickness in extra leaf difference?

    Stoked everyone is Jiving on these Made in USA leafs. Excellent prices.

    One of the longest lasting truck campers ever made. You need a big truck to handle that load though.

    Would anyone in west central Texas be interested in these nerf bars before I throw them up on market place?

    The step says Iron Cross Automotive. I found some on Amazon from the same brand but I think these must have been before they were made in China or something. They are incredibly thick walled and heavy. In fact, in a pinch, I probably wouldn’t hesitate to throw a hi-lift under one... Maybe...

    Yep. I personally have physical evidence of a Chupacabra. I've been meaning to take it to the U of A for DNA testing, but, you know, been busy.

    As a kid I would think about stuff like that in the tent when camping. As an adult I, of course, thought it was nonsense. That all changed recently when I found solid scientific proof. Now when I camp I double check the trailer door lock, have an extra gun handy, and a bottle of holy water just in case, even though I am an atheist.
