    Just did this yesterday with my spare 35.
    Did you chop the brackets, or remove them entirely? I tried to bend them into the frame by using a bottle jack...that did not work so perfect opportunity to try out my demolition hammer and chisel them off entirely.

    Not the best pic but here you go. Rear cats are not fully covered but can only be cut at a steep angle making it much more difficult. Hoping that is not worth the effort.

    Watch the Delta joint and do all the maintenance you can. Search online there are some words about that.

    I actually was going to go with this configuration that you have. After my research I decided that considering what I was doing I didn't need all the capabilities it offered. My lift was in the 2 1/2 inch range and a Tacoma.
    I went Bilstein instead and never looked back it was the best choice for my needs.

    Finally had a chance to make some progress removing chrome. Hood bulge and surround done. Bumpers are next.

    Saw everyone doing the matte clear on the shift indicator so did that and touched up the gate and cupholder while I was at it. Looks brand new.

    Got it back from the body shop - no more deer damage.
    $5700 was the final number

    I fit the same 285/75 tire but had to grind the brackets. You just cant get it far enough back without doing that

    No - that idea has been in there since I hit the damn deer. Worst part was my SSO Hybrid bumper shipped the day after I hit it.
    Now I’m considering something bigger

    Amazon just saw this before they only had red. Now they have matte black, matches perfectly

    I removed them completely by drilling out the rivets. It was a pain in the ass. I had a few burns on my arms and hands from the dropping hot metal. I’ve seen some people cut them off flush.

    How long ago did you buy them? Just went to the AJT site and do not see these listed. Did you buy them earlier and just put them on or did you buy them lately?
