Still waiting for TJM Extended Travel Coilovers to get here. Trying to decided if I can afford to buy new leafs before the install or wait till later. Either way Im pumped to start my Titan Swap.

Where in the springs are you located? I have seen a few Silver one's lately, do you have a pic to post?
I live by Black Forest and Woodmen. I will post a pic when I get home tonight. I have think I have actually seen you before, I was headed South on Powers and tried to pull up next to you and wave, may of not seen me, that was about a month or two ago.

I would love get on the trails soon, but I will still need new tires after my Titan swap. My current tires, Radial Long Trail, are very very worn down. Hoping to be good to go by the middle to end of September.

Titan Swaped

After 2 Weekends of hard work, 5 days Total, my Titan Swap has been completed. Full log below with Pics.. Took me a fair amount of blow torching & pounding on with a 4lbs hammer to remove the bolt that holds the LCA to the Spindle, bolts came out mangled and smashed. Luckily the dealership had 2 bolts and nuts for a Titan that fit perfectly. Had to do some modifying to the center bolt on the leafs to make them work. Other than those issues with Spindle, LCA, and Center bolt everything installed smoothly. Total lift came to about 3" over stock. The Pre Titan Swap picture has 2" Spacers and Shackles, Spacers were removed for Titan Swap.

Hey Rushy Rush if you want some tires for the rest of the wheeling season for a cheap price pm me, I have some km2s for 17" rims that id be willing to practically give you since your local. They have plenty of tread on them for wheeling. By far my most favorite tire ever. Also when I say give to you, I mean it
