Looking for that thing i just had in my hand...
The above pics are with the rear sway bars on, can't wait to see how they look maxed out. Also I did PA_JERO's truck with 90 degree fittings on his shocks, looks a lot cleaner. When i ordered the first set of shocks i wasn't sure how the hoses would clear the towers, now we know.

Watching these two trucks move across the terrain with animal like prowlness and they ride every bit as good as my basically stock none lifted 95. The king's just soak up every pot hole and divet in the road truely solid builds

Still working on gear break in but we did hit the snow this weekend and rescue a snowed in retired couple (and pulled out 7 stuck 4x4's). Snow was pretty deep but Monteros powered through well enough.

Still breaking in gears, here's some more poser shots from out on an easy mostly 2wd trail. JK style 🤣

Short term report, so far so good. Need to adjust bumpstops a bit, new rear springs don't flex as well as the old ones either but I'll be replacing those later.
