Patiently waiting, unfortunately nothing.......at all. No tracking info, but stated its enroute.
Man, I'm really hoping for some positive comms from you for your sake but also for others who are planning on going this route. You just got the coils right?

Coils, Arms, Rear Sway Bar, Panhard Rod and Bump stops coming from Aus. I realize that the shipping industry has been affected, but learning patience as we speak.

Going with Radflo this time for shocks.

Wheels/ tires, winch, audio, lighting and a crap ton of goodies are all taking up floor space. Just getting over covid, so two valuable weeks. behind.

Right on, I’m sure it’ll all work out. Glad you’re on the mend. Looking forward to your progress.

still waiting, which is good......about 90% of my parts have arrived. Scheel Mann seats are ordered, ARB's F/R and midi compressor, 4:88's, RCV Chromoly's are here. Front/Rear axles get dropped out on the 22 so im not really in a hurry, just doing mindless stuff after work till then.

Always wanted a hood light that actually lit up the entire motor cab. Got these from SuperBrightLeds.com They lit up the entire cab perfectly, hood pin is en route. Screwed in 5 retainer clips, in case the 3M tape fails.

I will tell you this...If you are starting to work on wiring your vehicle..this tool is a must. I wish we had these back in the 90's, All I had was a chisel and hammer, but this is much nicer end result. This particular midel is WAAAY to big at 16 tons, but i didnt realize it until it came...As for shrink tube, make sure you but the stuff with advesive , as they sell the cheap stuff and doesnt hold up as well.

Currently having 3rd members fitted with ARB's front and rear with 4:88's at a shop on the Western Slope of Colorado called Pakku Roba. Pakku Roba - Overland Outfitting and Premium Coffee - https://pakkuroba.com/ His name is Mike and does suspensions and driveline upgrades to all year 4x4 Toyotas/Lexus models...he's got that extreme German attention to detail, very fair and respectful. (Also, for you coffee snobs like myself, he has a coffee roasting company that ships out the same day of roasting, making it literally the freshest coffee available.)

Axle housings removed for welding some trusses in, then off to powdercoat.

I did go with a 4x4Labs rear bumper basic kit as I will fab the swing outs.
