Love this! It is on my "wish list".Finally got the JD fab parts installed along with DRT fab spindle gussets. Also was able to get the shocks all rebuilt. Truck is feeling revived and much better. With the wheels pushed forward more now, I haven't scraped the tire against the cab mount and rear part of the fender like I was before just doing normal driving, even with +3 degrees of caster and a BMC. I'm happy with the outcome.
Yup. Now you need to ditch the spare and add the HC cross bar to complete the setup.Fixed my harsh rear end bottom-out issue by replacing the Wheelers flip kit & Superbumps with the Archive Garage Stealth HD flip kit & Yellow Speed Bumps bump stops. I fkn love Archive Garage products, they're so well designed. Gained uptravel and I can't feel the rear bump stops at all anymore. <3

Spent this weekend knocking out a couple interior upgrades that I've been meaning to do.
After disabling the useless Qi charger a few weeks ago, I wanted to repurpose its switch to control something cooler. Enter VLEDS aqua footwell lights. Pieced together my own kit with a dimmer and saved $80 over their pnp kit. Came out awesome. Super impressed with these tiny lights.
Next up was to remove the Anytime Backup Camera kit and rewire the front camera directly to the DMH-WC6600NEX. The ABC kit worked fantastic with the stock hu, but was not besties with the Pioneer. I then reflashed my Maestro to have the backup camera come on if I hold down the End Call Button, so I still have a physical button to load the rear camera. Haven't figured out to make it toggle the front camera with a button yet, but hopefully can figure it out soon.
Removing the ABC switch allowed me to install something else in its place so I added the OEM Glass Breakage sensor along with the small style Tundra mic (P/N: 08192-65810). The mic's are exactly the same on the back, but this fits the smaller cutout.

Dude at work asked if I wanted some molle panels for the bed and center console. He gave me every panel Cali raised makes for free, pretty much brand new. Wasn’t going to say no to that lol. He insisted he wanted no money . Just need to source a little hardware.
SOLD OUTJust an FYI that I make hidden small ($23) and full size ($33) replacement front license plate brackets that replace the 3G ugly plastic one which, over time, will cut grooves in the painted bumper cover. I also make hidden full size brackets ($35) that mount in the fairlead opening for those with aftermarket bumpers that do not run a winch. Each one uses stainless mounting and license plate hardware with rubber isolators to keep aluminum bracket from contacting the painted bumper. Small one also works on 2nd gen. Large ones are tongue and groove fitted machined assemblies.
I have seen a lot of bad reviews on quality from them in the last couple of years,
its not good to hear the QC dept shipped non-working unit(s).
I would say call them and give them a opportunity to send a replacement.
But honestly I would just cut the loss and buy a better product.
2 strikes already,.... right.
That sucks but 3 strikes would be even worse.
My jeep set came from here,
When you pay a shop to rebuild your shocks. A week later you try to adjust the compression and the knob won’t move. Pulled the knobs and found this… yeah I don’t think they even took the reservoirs apart. Pretty pissed right now seeing that I have a big trip in a couple weeks.
I called them today and then went to the shop after work. Their shock builder did admit he missed checking the high speed knobs. They checked pressure in the shocks and verified everything else operated properly. We’re working on a plan to fix it. Most likely need some new internals on both rear shock reservoirs. The owner said he’ll work with me on cost since it was their mistake missing it in the first place. Either way I would’ve been paying for some new parts so at least he’ll help out with the price. For the mean time the truck is a little bouncy at certain speeds. I’m assuming it’s because I can’t adjust the compression in the rear and I think one of them is stuck between settings. I’ll give it maybe a couple more weeks and see if it smooths out any. Hopefully when we get the reservoirs fixed, it will run perfectly smoothThat is so lame. You should be pissed. Have you contacted them?
