09Fronti6sp4x4- Yeah i saw that one, still looks like it requires drilling though

mustard23-of course and the higher your center of gravity the more you tip-over...i'm just 4x2 so not planning to worry about too many high speed corners or much crawling

UPDATE ON TRUCK: the fog light kit is now installed and i took it out this weekend for a 150 mile drive through some dirt roads and muddy trails(pics below)

UPDATE: finally had the time to put the PRG rear lift shackles on, they went in super easy and it feels nice to have the truck up a little higher...that being said modding is more addictive than crack and I already have my eyes on some CST 4" spindles for up front

Holy water bottles batman! I think some Mil spec water cans are in order for you. I like the rack but I feel like thats a fair bit of weight up there... 6 flats of water at ~20lbs each =120lbs above the roof line just in water. You might want to reconsider how you load the rack. Just a thought, not trying to bash you in any way.

@AndrewVK: you mean my signature pics?...yeah they are Hiluxs' from the movie district 9 and while showing Yota pics is probably a hanging offense on this board :eek:ops1: i love the way they built those trucks

@glamisdude72000: yeah the water was just a stress load to see if it could take the weight ( i had my buddy sit on top of the water after that pic just to see if the rack and bars could hold it (cheap weld testing). I'm toying with adding one of these tanks for water and have bought some 5 gals

some more updates...

Suspension:
so i pulled out the daystar leveling spacers up front and replaced them with new rancho coil overs for about the same 2 inch lift. Still fine-tuning the shock adjustments and saving for some spindles to get me the height i want. out back i'm running the PRG shackles and dealers for about 3.8 inches of actual lift.



Engine:
I installed a K&N intake which was a piece of cake though I am a bit worried about debris and and water since the box isn't sealed. Also I bought a BullyDog GT and got it nestled next to my CB in the cubby under the HVAC controls.




Exterior:
Blacked out grille and a sick-speed dual-tone horn replacement. Hella lights up top and rear facing Baja spots



Problems:
I developed a nasty leak from my washer fluid reservoir, probably took a nasty rock his at some point since it lives right above the fender well. If seen a bunch of people have similar problems here and on New-X but haven't had the time to pull it out yet.

it was a little trick to pull the old horns without taking out the headlight or air box....i made a T shaped bracket to mount the new ones and just added to wire to reach the new mount. The horns came with instructions for wiring with or without a relay and i didn't wire one in.

Got some new drilled and slotted rotors, just installed the rear ones. I'm waiting to do the front rotors until I am installing the next phase of the front suspension. I can't decide between doing CST spindles, a Calmini 5 inch kit (if i can get just the front) or some combo of PRG UCA's and spacers.
