image.jpg image.jpg I took a deposit on the above wagon, so it looks like a winch may finally stuff the front bumper.
Going to try and swing a rear bumper as well.

Also looking at what I have to do to fit 295/75/16s...

Most legit automotive paint shops can color match and put it in a rattle can. Find a reputable shop, take the sequoia to the shop, they will use a special camera to take a picture of the paint near the area you are matching and the computer does the rest. Much better solution than ordering online.

Haven’t checked in for a bit. Had some work done up front, paid too much for labor, need more work...
Front coilovers rebuilt by our own Jim Smola, SPC UCAs from 1stgenoffroad, oem LBJs, and longer rear shocks from Sal Rosal.
The shop took it to get aligned and I picked it up Friday night for a 4 hour trip Saturday AM. Not how I intended to do it, but whatever.
The passenger tire rubs on turns and the front end clunks.
After we returned, I brought it to another shop to get it realigned. Turns out it needs more work before they felt comfortable aligning it. The cams on the ucas are opposite each other, the lower control arm bushings are shot, as are the steering rack bushings. Probably the noise I’m hearing. And everything moves, so there’s no point in setting it until I address those issues.
Cant upload pics I guess.
