Nice looking rig. Is the on board air the same as your ARB for recovery? Any plans for a winch or would you have to change front bumpers?

@ShawnR
Yea it's the same compressor, I mounted it behind the back seat.
The bummer takes a winch, just haven't gotten to it yet.The winch just needs a detachable solenoid and a synthetic line. Any recommendations?

I just have a Smittybilt 9500 XRC with synthetic line. I'm happy so far but it doesn't get a lot of us. Holds up to the elements well and is waterproof. But for better answers to your question, I'd ask in the recovery section. My knowledge on this subject is very limited. lol

My new bed cage is on its way!!!! Ready to upgrade to a real cage that won't put stress on the sides of the bed and mounts into the frame directly.

Is that the Brute Force Fab cage? Or just modeled after it?

No it's Brute Force Fab, you know your bed racks. Bully has been great to work with.

In a week (plus or minus 6 days) Billy is going to get a pile of my money for a custom plate bumper for the front of my '07

He's a solid dude and his work is top notch excited to get it on the truck. I really want his rear high clearance with a swing out now. I think I'll need to upgrade the rear leafs before I do that.

I was just planning how the future rear end of my truck is going to look. I think the progression is going to go something like this...
BAMF Shock Relocation with 12" Billstein 5125 shocks.
...
Then the ATO Shackle Flip, and a set of Dakars.

I like where your heads at. I got a quote from alcan out in grand junction, and they said they can make some 6 inch lifted leafs rated for 800 over stock for 600.00. Need to take them up on that. They will do a unolt flip for it. But after a HC rear I'll need the shackle flip 2. Not sure I want to commit to doing a shock relocation.

This is NateMob's truck on Tacomaworld, with the SOS Concepts shackle flip.


that's so much better than where mine is at currently.
