    Does your bumper stick out further in that center part than the bought-not-built bumpers? Or does it look like that just because there's not a heavy change in the approach angle pieces in combo with really thin side-arms?

    Ahh, it's just the angle in that picture + skinny sidearms.

    When I get more action I'd be glad to. All my wheeling cash is going into repairing regular wear items. Next on the list is new LCA bushings (probably gonna get all new LCA's)

    From what I've read, if you have to replace bushings alongside LBJ, just replace the assy, but just bushings? Replace bushings.

    Thinking of doing a rear locker for my next mod... Debating between an e-locker or an ARB...

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    A E-Locker put of a 09 Trail and also the A Track system too. No balls to build that one.

    No balls to build what one? And I found an e-locker kit for like $150 to power and engage it. Problem solved!

    I was talking more the A-Track system out of an 09 Trail into your truck with that new E-Locker. Now that would be some BA SH#$ my friend. That is my favorite 4th Gen of them all. Something about that Trail that makes me want one bad!!!!

    Haha true true, I'd love an 09 TT, though my ATRAC system works just great in my 05 :)

    Adding a rear locker would really be all I need because with my ATRAC, center diff lock, and low range, my only issue is when I hang a rear tire cause I lose all my power lol.

    I believe so. Everything clicks and clunks under the dash when I slip tires

    No I'm thinking not. I'm going to look to be sure but I'm pretty sure it was just the 09 trail that had it. Its the same system the is in the FJ Cruiser.
