This is the stock-est photo I have. Just Plastidipped grille and lights. At the Redwater sand dunes (beach sand in the middle of a forest, weird huh?)

I still find mud from this day, 2 years later.

That is gorgeous! The bumper looks great, as does the T-swap. How do you think the t swap effected your on-road handling? I'm trying to sell my wife on it right now!

I'm going to be doing my suspension only titan sway really soon and will be reusing my Radflo 2.0 coilovers with spacers. I noticed you did the same. How has that been? Any binding in the CVs?

Everything's good with the coilovers. They were 2" on my factory suspension, and with 2" spacers the truck should be at 4" which is well within a T-Swap's capability.

That being said, I'll probably upgrade from my 600lb springs and 2.0 shock bodies down the road. I'll get the T-Swap specific coilovers.

(Keep in mind the ones I'm running now are factory length, I see yours are extended. That will make a difference in travel and possibly CV performance)

Swapped my front diff to M205 and rear axle to a locked M226! Now I just have to wire the locker to a toggle switch on the dash.
I'd follow Killswitch's write-up and use a switch with an indicator light so you know exactly when the locker is disengaged after turning it off
