  1. Probably assembly lube or a protective coating for storage.
  2. Album Art For each Song?

    My wife’s 2017 Yukon displays the art if, like mentioned above, the art is in the file or contained within the song’s file itself.
  3. Honestly I just tighten until the torque wrench clicks and then hit it with the impact a bit. The impact version of “two grunts and a fart”. More helpful - on my ‘11 if I bounced on the bumper I could see if the top nuts were loose. Impacted them on and checked until I couldn’t see the looseness.
  4. Brush guard, good or bad???

    It’s called a brush guard. It guards against brush. It is not made to stop the impact of what probably totaled that Camry from damaging your truck. Since it is a Ranch Hand guard and is actually made of good quality, thick steel and mounted firmly to the frame I would bet money it saved you some damage. Look at that Camry, if the brush guard wasn’t there absorbing some of the impact and pushing against the Camry what makes you think that car wouldn’t have been further up into your truck? Now, if you had one of those cheap, chromed-exhaust-tube-bolt-together brush guards that just bolt to the bumper then I bet you’d see a lot more damage. If you had a full bumper/guard combo like a Ranch Hand/Iron Cross/ARB/TJM/etc I bet you’d see even more destruction on them and less on you.
  5. Deep well impact sockets. All I own. The pressure of the weight of the truck helps while tightening with the impact so you shouldn’T have to hold the shaft in place. Conversely, when tightening with a torque wrench the pressure gets overwhelmed by your slow, gradual torque build up and lets the shaft spin So you need to hold the shaft in place with another wrench. However the spring pushing up means you can hit the correct top nut torque before the actual compression required is reached. Had it happen on several different vehicles with similar strut setups. Impacting it on always fixed it without side effects.
  6. Make sure the top nut is tight. I had to impact mine on again after initial install in order to actually seat them. 3 years and 60,000 miles since without the rattles.
  7. leveling a trailboss

    Suspension should be no different.
  8. Try to get the front end to bounce by bouncing on the bumper. Make sure the shock bolts/nuts are tight. The suspension pushes out while they pull in so sometimes they can be loose but seem tight while sitting at ride height. Then you start driving and after ever bump you get a clank as the shock slams the loose fasteners against their mount.
  9. There definitely should be some kind if physical/mechanical stop to upward and downward travel. The struts should not be it.
  10. Does the kit include limit straps?
  11. For all intents and purposes, no. The 265 is literally 10 mm narrower than the 275. The difference in ground pressure is negligible.
  12. Incorrect. Only the CV shafts are special. The control arms, ball joints, steering components, and all their associated mounts are all the same as regular trucks. So those components will be working at an effective 3.5” lift height.
