I don't even have a vehicle build thread up yet.
Now I have to go check out your rear tire carrier!

Oh it isn't anything special, but I'm a frugal DIYer and wasn't about to spend close to a grand for what I wanted. Lol.

It has a locking T-handle to stop it from swinging all the way open, but hasn't been installed yet since I'll have to measure the hole when I get 33s put on.

Here's a dumb question... And this is just me being bored and brainstorming.

Provided someone could fabricate the top hat with a throughbolt (like the Radflo design) wouldn't these work as another option for coilovers? Just add some 600 lbs springs and proper length bushings, right? Or... No?

If it'd work, these would be less than half the cost of Radflos, and with the added benefit of rebound adjustment. I dunno.

I'm no expert, but PRG makes tophats that may work for you.

A stick shift is just a millennial anti-theft device.

That is a good idea, I tend to be bad about remembering to take pics, totally didn't take a single one during my OME install, or Rad change
lol same I never take pictures. When I installed the plenum spacer, I only took one lol

Haha. Some people give me weird looks when I call my X a truck. Guess they aren't really spun up on the body on frame vs unibody, etc.
