The manager/main fabricator of the Temecula ORW showed me exactly how he does it on trucks, and this was it. He's got infinitely more experience and knowhow so im sure I'll be fine.

i understand that, but double sheer is used for non load bearing shocks, it should be used for a heavy load bearing limit strap.

Its setup in a HD format. When you upload in 1080P, it only allows computers to view it. Sorry guys, it was from my gopro in 1080.

Nope! the 5100's are awesome, they handle exactly like i want them too. Im glad i didnt go 2.0's. I have also finished off with the truck. I dont have any plans to change anything on it for atleast 2-3 years. Investing in it is fun, and i love working on it, but its so nice having time to rest and relax, and not worry about the truck. Its a point a-b now. Last week i was actually debating trading it for a BMW 128i stick i found locally. BUT i have no payments now and i dont feel like making payments right now.

A man should never drive a 128i. And anything lower then a 5 series is not cool for lack of a better word.

I disagree. I would drive the hell out of a new M3 Coupe.... Matte black with gloss black wheels lowered with coil-overs = my dream.
