With changing nothing else, the arms have made an insane difference in handling and how the truck soaks up hits. Was hoping to make more progress last weekend, but literally the first bolt I went to remove from the front drive shaft the torx head sheared off flush...so in the process of trying to get that out. Did manage to swap out all the brake lines for carli extended ones and replace a wheel bearing on my daily driver grand cherokee so the entire weekend wasn't a bust I suppose.

I really wish I could have kept the PW...honestly that thing felt like a sports car handling wise compared to the cummins, just all around lighter feel which is funny with a 7500 lb vehicle. But 850 ft-lbs of torque...is well, 850 ft-lbs of torque. The PW was a lot more fun at slow speeds, hands down...off the line that thing was a blast...

I miss my pw every day. You can get a cummins pretty far but in the end it's still a boat anchor

What size springs are you running? I was looking at the 20x10 TR's but I'm concerned with tire clearance on those wide Toyo MT's.

Those are the exact color scheme I am looking at, very nice.

6" thuren springs. The nice thing with the trail readys is you can specify your back spacing

Rear end is done...well with band aid lift blocks until Thuren comes out with his 6" LT leafs. Side note, anyone have a good recommendation for high mount bed supports for a bed mounted tent?

I have my tent rack for sale. You won't need bed supports if you have my rack, it covers that base.

Making progress, rear is done with temp lift blocks until thuren comes out with his 6" Lt leafs. Trail readys came out pretty damn good if I do say so myself

Anyone looking to go with 3.0 or larger shocks....this was the easiest way I came up with to open them bottom coil buckets. Essentially a wood jig to keep the whole saw from wandering
