Thanks man! Last I saw you were fixing your motor mounts and throwing bypasses and air bumps on your T4R. Going to be rad to have the rig back in action!
Yep. Motor mounts are fixed and reinforced and bumps are on. Put the rear shocks back together with the new valving today and I'll put the rear end back together tomorrow after work.

Hoping to have the front done by Friday, but I didn't get one of the shims I wanted for the front revalve so I have to call ADS tomorrow. Bypasses will go on late July or August.

Rad! Can't wait to see it all back together. :popcorn2:

Feels damn good to back in the woods. Views for days with some stellar company.

The truck did stellar otherwise. Didn't bother to air down because lazy. Truck desperately needs 5.29s, but I did pick up Tundra calipers, rotors, and ceramic pads from a good friend and Caleb from Hot Metal Fab. My Hard Brake Line Kit to show up today, so I'll be cleaning the brakes up this weekend and painting them red because #racetruck :rofl:

Suspension refresh is something I've been thinking more serious about recently.

Long travel and 4 link the rear is also something I've thought about. Either MCM Fab or JD Fabrication up front. :spy:

LT and 37s looks pretty rad on these truck, but I'm mostly concerned about the front end strength. Tundra CV axles helps a little since thoses are beefier than the stock Taco ones. ARB also helps to big degree with the diff, but still a little concerned there.

Probably looking at end of the year or so to put things on order. That or if I can't find 2.5x8 Kings or Fox coilovers, then I might just order 2.5x14s for SAS since everything is on national backorder.

@Airdog should have some 2.5x8 foxes for sale in another month or two.

I just ordered the JD kit a couple weeks ago for my 3rd gen T4R. Not much out there for installed pics for this model year range, but I’m excited and have been waiting for years to get back into the LT game.

I will be interested for sure! I just ordered the arms, so I’ll be piecing the coilovers and axles as funds allow for the next couple months.
