I think so! Came out a little brighter than I hoped, but I think it'll still look good.

Also installed my UMI trans crossmember and TA relocation today

Very nice, I have mine mounted in the neutral position for now. I see you have yours high up.

I read second hole from top was closest to stock location. But I'm experiencing a little vibration around 40 when the converter locks, so I may lower it a little. Not sure if that's attributed to moving the TA off the tail shaft though

Is that a stock torque arm? I was going to suggest setting your pinion angle to 2.5 degrees since you are auto.

Got the front wheels amd brakes on! A combination of one stubborn bolt and not having the proper tools kept me from putting the rears on unfortunately.

Thanks!

I added some UMI LCAs when I put the rest wheels on, and I painted my rear calipers to match my fronts. Really liking the new set up.

Small update: Replaced my old cracked brake reservoir with a new one, also got some new 325-30-19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

Bad news is that I lost my lug key, so hopefully I'll have that resolved by tomorrow.
