Spend a little more and buy a quality air hose. Harbor freight air lines crack and began to leak after a while

I have seen his setup in person (he is my neighbor) and they will work just fine, not super bright but easily bright enough.

Shouldn't the front legs be a few more inches forward? It looks like you'll trip over them getting in/out.

As for padding, check out Home Depot for pipe insulation or something like that; closed cell foam stuff.

if you are thinking about the baja SS seats I dont know how well they would fit... I have a set in the jeep if you want to give them a test fitting.

These are some corbeau Baja SS in my 4runner. I love them. Except, the previous owner made it so they cant go back and forth. no problem for me but short people cant drive my truck. :greengrin:

the way all pro did their setup is that the cage fits on 2 flat spots in the cab it works out all most perfect... and its not too hard to get in the truck... i need padding for this weekend im gonna check out the pipe insulation from HD like you said i know jegs sells it for pretty cheap. its about 2" from my head so u might be boned on an interior cage

Ha ha, your truck is padded... could call it the Loony Bin now!

I might have some tubing ling around for make-shift bump stops; I'll poke around and see what I can find.

Where do you want to go tomorrow?

found a few things to mess with today on my truck...

i did the old jack up one side to check how my truck was flexing well my front shackle since it is straight up does no move, only the springs flex lol...

my solution for this is going to be get the main leaf from a rear and just swap the 2 mains, should stretch the front but also keep the decent alcan springs up front...

the springs them self are not long enough thats the problem they are stock length with 5" of lift.... super lame

I also for sure have a broken Motor Mount, they are aftermarket advanced adapters ones and i think i am just going to make totally new one rather than buy replacements, i was thinking DOM style tubular ones.

I saw marlins ftoy mounts and really liked that idea i might make some similar
