    twin traction beam. The driven version of twin I-beam.

    'Independent' solid axle suspension.

    Great for high speed long travel. Like if i wanted to run the baja 1000.

    Too much camber gain for street use. But you can make those arms and axles as long as you want. Like control arms effectively 3 ft long.

    My xr250 in highschool had a horn button on the foot brake to trigger the brake light, and bicycle mirrors. When they 'stopped' me while i was parked, i wouldnt run, but i wouldnt ride. When i was riding, i ran, knew the roads, the trails, the neighborhoods. Got the plate from the pearland flea market for a dollar, but they knew where i lived, so i'd tuck into friends houses. Never legal from '02-'08

    Yes you're thinking of what they call a street takeover. 200 idiots block traffic and raise hell on ATV's, dirt bikes etc.

    Basically real life GTA.

    Here in MA you can register your street legal ATV/dirt bike in a state that recognizes it like MT and drive it on MA roads with MT plates.

    I was thinking about doing that with a golf cart. Apparently, you can register them for street use in NC. :D

    Took advantage of my 5 minute commute to the reservoir this evening and picked up a couple smallies while watching the arriving waterfowl come in my the thousands. My only company was a deer browsing in the park. Gods country is right, so nice to have left Portland behind.

    Nice! Those look like a solid 2-3lbs, good catch.

    For whatever reason, this year has been weird down here. I don't think I've caught anything over 1-3lb range this year like this guy and his friend. It's almost like anything more than a couple years old is either hanging deep or just disappeared. Nothing will hit plastics, spinner/buzz, anything topwater, only crankbaits. I probably spent the first month of spring/summer getting skunked working Culprits at shoreline, which'll usually pull something bedding if nothing else. Zilch.

    Ive heard this years been off at our reservoir too but with the move ive barely fished. Trying to change that 30 min at a time now though. The Cats moved into the arm good, lots of good channels and some flatheads. Perch has been good as well. Usually this place is a crappie machine but this year theyve been few and far between but lots of large fish with plenty to 16"+

    Heres a nice flathead one of the locals got last week. I went down there last night to throw a topwater but grabbed wrong box. The Senko was really about hoping to run into a cat for the fryer but the smallies will suffice. Good way to break in the new Daiwa Steez reel i was sitting on all season.

    Is this the ball joint itself coming apart or the bolts shearing off?

    Haven't been on here in a while, but hope you filthy animals are doing well in life.

    Just wanted to drop a quick update is all. I keep in contact with the fella that took the Tundra off my hands, and he's done a great job with evolving it to its final form:

    Ugh. So with this LBJ issue, is there any way of visually determining they need replacement? just the usual play when jacked up?

    Just don't use anything except OEM LBJ and use fresh bolts. Supposedly you should be good. There's another lifetime model out there (I'll edit this to link it later) that could have the longevity, and a specific bolt that's recommended (I'll link that later too) but generally speaking, OEM LBJ, fresh bolts.

    EDIT FROM LATER:

    Here's the lifetime UBJ/LBJ kit @RUSTYNUTS had good luck with, it's the XRF "Lifetime" model for '96-'02 1st gen and 4R, from a company that's been around quite a while and claims to be better than OE: https://www.tundras.com/threads/1st-gen-lunch-table-general-discussion.60450/page-1261#post-2903929

    Per Spiker, here are the ARP bolts to use as replacements, feel free to read the whole comparison thread if you feel compelled to learn more: https://www.tundras.com/threads/spi...-bolt-test-1st-gen.111746/page-3#post-2901172

    you can use a prybar if you really wanna convince yourself to change em. Mine seem fine, but when i do my bushings, i'll do the bj's just to be safe.

    I’m confused about this whole lbj matter. The initial recall was a defect in manufacturing. Either that or a poor design being subtly upgraded. Anyhow, now people are stating bolts are shearing or the ball joint itself is failing.

    Are these complaints from those who were never serviced for the recall?

    Thanks for the info. The truck is new to me so I'm not sure what is on there, and I'm taking a long drive this weekend (early tomorrow am) so no time to replace them just in case. Just hoping I don't get a surprise along the way.

    Got any service records?

    Have you gone to Toyota's Owners website to setup an account, link your VIN to yourself, check for open recalls, and look at their records? https://www.toyota.com/owners

    Have you looked at your front suspension lately to see if the uppers or lowers look to be newer/older, if the bushings are good, all the other stuff you should check?

    EDIT: Wanna post some photos of everything and share?
