FYI the TC hardware/slug adapters will hit the uniball cup if you use them on camburg arms. The Camburg adapters push the uniball further up (vertically) from the spindle than the TC ones do.
Weather permitting, I'll put them as close to side-by-side. Don't really want to pull my TC UCAs out just for that.Great photo essay. I have never seen TC hardware or arms up close, so was unsure of the differences between them and Camburg. I have Camburg and have been very pleased with them. Without pulling them back apart, I believe what you show here is very similar to what I have. I'm not sure how much the differences matter, as both company's products seem to work.
I'm also interested in seeing the differences between the two arms. Do they have the same angles, are they the same dimensions, same bracing, etc.
I had no intention of swapping hardware, but I did notice that the uniball interface on the Camburg was higher than TC (if you measure from the spindle mating surface), which also helped to explain the collar profile differences bw the two. The narrow neck on the Camburg would help clear the cup, for sure.FYI the TC hardware/slug adapters will hit the uniball cup if you use them on camburg arms.

In theory, I would say yes, external snorkels could grab cleaner air...if you're not following someone kicking up dust.Not to clutter your thread up too much, but would one advantage of the external snorkel be to grab "cleaner" air on dusty trails? Would the hidden snorkel have more chance of dust ingress than an external? I ask because I run trails that get incredibly dusty during the dry months, but worry that an external snorkel would snag on limbs and other tight spots.
The Dobinsons will fully compress with a 1/2" margin with the stock bumpstops.Sal,
It looks like you kept the stock rear bump stops when you had the Dobinsons installed. Were they adequate or did they allow the shocks to fully compress before making contact? I currently run the Dobinson GS59-685 with OME 862 on my 03 Sequoia and I just recently encountered a "full stuff" situation that got me thinking about this (after the fact of course). However, I can't jack the tire high enough at my house to measure safely. Any chance you've already measured this? Thanks, your Sequoia is one of the sickest I've seen across the interwebs!
Thank you for the reply. I made and installed 2.5x2.5 steel tubing extensions over the weekend but I believe I will be removing them. I had read over the data in the attached link over and over before posting and I guess I just assumed those were your measurements with 5125s installed. Anyways, this is great news and I can quit driving around town trying to stuff my rear tires for measurements lol.The Dobinsons will fully compress with a 1/2" margin with the stock bumpstops.
The Dobinson shocks where chosen to fit within my measurements when I cycled the rear suspension droop to bumps. Measurement results are posted in link below.
The waterport can be pressurized as it is filled or using an air pump like a bicycle pump. Waterport has a vid of it somewhere. I've been using my ARB OBA to pressurize the tank while out and about.Fantastic updates. Love coming here and reading up on the truck. I came up with a few ideas I'll have to do for myself as well including the molle panel and the onboard water shower. How does that system pressurize to allow water to come out? Also, how many miles are on the rig? Any worries for future proofing this beast or is it one of those things you won't worry until it comes time to swap out a worn out engine/trans and cross that bridge then?
Thanks! I hope that my build was helpful in some way.Such a cool build! Inspires me for the 2007 I just picked up.
