And finally a couple notes from this trip:
#1 Toyo M/T tires are AWESOME!
#2 It's a good thing that plastic piece under the front bumper got ripped off in Glamis because it would have been bouncing around the bed of my truck this trip...
#3 My front shocks got 'broken in' and became a bit loose - enough to cause a little thump when we got back on the road. I intentionally installed them 'lightly' per instructions -against my previous method of tightening the mount until the bushings 'smush' a bit. Well, I had to snug them up but its a good thing I recognized the sound/feel or I would have been freaking out
#4 I am amazed at the approach/departure angle and clearance of my truck with just a front end leveling kit!! I just knew I was going to scrape something but never did
#5 Although my truck does better than ever expected off road, it still isn't a Jeep ;P
