What's the word on the Y link extension? How much lift before it is needed, etc?

I've been running over 4 inches of lift for over 100,000 miles and still haven't installed one. Tri link is angled more than what it should be possibly but never have had an issue
So they do help when I'd say over 3-3.5 inches of lift

I had the dealer last month replace the power steering hose, which wasn't cheap. (My excuse... I just didn't have the time.) So afterwards, I noticed that the horn wasn't working? I checked the relay last weekend, and it was clicking, so today it hit me to make sure that the horns were even plugged in! (And they weren't.)

Replaced both front bump stops, nothing big but a bit time consuming as I had to take the tires off to get enough grip to get them in place. You can see the old one on the left. It hadn't been replaced in a number of years. Crown brand from Quadratech fit nicely

I've actually used those tires on a ford truck 15years ago. They just called them Dakotas back then, IIRC. Decent in mud, and unstoppable in snow. Friend had them on his Bronco, he would plow snow in 2wd, no joke. Only thing going against them out here, fairly light sidewalls, making them prone to rock damage.

I finally ordered some locking cross bars for my roof rack! Last week I picked up a steel basket with a wind deflector for practically nothing, and a friend of mine gave me a cargo net that will work perfectly with it. Then I returned the soft-sided roof carrier I bought previously, so I'm pretty much even cost wise and I'll have a WAY better setup now.

Aww ic. We were running 31x10.5 and 33x12.5, both of which I think are C rated. For the price, they are pretty good.
