    I think the mount plan is taking shape. Close your eves and pretend the welds are pretty. These are the mount mounts, once they are tapped and stuff…

    And then there’s the stuff that isn’t done. That list is always longer, lol. I’m really looking forward to routine maintenance.

    I have bins of stuff to do and it’s rare that I make forward progress. Feels good when it happens though.

    Only had it in a few weeks. Noticeable increase in starting power. Did the diode swap - time will have to tell on the longevity.

    Here are the “mounts” tapped with M5x.8 screws. Those screws or ones like them (black) become my hard mount points. I’ll have to make some brackets to adapt something more universal, but I’m thinking 3/4 rod with 20mm ball mounts. That opens the door and is pretty minimal(ish).

    Yea. Lol. A bit latter in June I have some time set away to mod (repair) house stuff. My wife likes the truck but that only goes so far. :)

    That is great. Enjoy the day buddy, kids are stoked to have you. I'll try to get a picture of the BAF (it's a flag) down the street. It's big.

    Crucial to get the house stuff done in order to buy some more time on what’s really important. Aka the truck.

    It was 40 degrees cooler up there, I brought a sweatshirt for the little, the big one ended up getting the dash blanket, which I then commandeered. LEO was in full force and not fucking around up there, super glad I had a car ahead of me…….that got pulled over. 6383A8F6-365F-4251-A813-80BBDE5717C6.jpg

    I always keep the speeders ahead of me on long trips and most highway trips. If I'm not going as fast as them I'm cool, I tell myself. It seems to work. 1 ticket in 20 years but I deserved that one and was out of county, didn't know the traps. Respect and the kiddo wingman got that 87 down to a 70 in a 55.

    After 9 years of owning my 2002 AC I finally replaced the broken plastic latches on my quarter windows! Very happy to be able to keep these windows open now

    I chased my dead gauges/ blowing fuse to some wiring in the rear taillight. The heims on my front shocks need to be replaced. I am debating making a trip to Garden Grove to get them fully serviced and upgraded. I also replaced a blown exhaust gasket just in time for me to receive my Smog notice.

    If you want I'm sure we can assist. What kind of driving are you planning for? Do you want rebuildable shocks? How much are you looking to spend? I mean a decent set of coils from OME, Eibach, or Dobinson paired with a decent shock like OME, Toytec, Bilstein and off road UCA's is really all you need in front for a 2-3 inch lift. The rear is super easy if you get a decent AAL (progressive only) I recommend wheelers off road. Now pair that with some shocks aforementioned. Don't forget the little things like if you want to keep your sway bar, extended links. And stainless extended brake lines, BPV bracket. done.


    or...
    buy once, cry once with some 2.5 coilovers from the big brands and some Deaver or Alcan leaf packs. Pick your rear shock and dont forget the little goodies aforementioned.

    F'ing leaf packs man. You would think slabs of steel wouldn't be such a royal PIA to get right :)

    I ran the red bosses for a long time and wheeled em too. The only complaint I had was the spanner wrench they included broke immediately when I went to adjust the preload and it tok them 3 months to send me a new one. By then, I had come to realize my truck road great on the road and most trails. But I had enough extra weight on the truck that it rubbed off camber on turns r on hard drops off road, so i really needed to go from the red 650lb coils to the silver 700l coils. But the price to swap em was not far off from the black friday cost of a new set of kings... so I bought the extended travel 700lb kings instead. :101010:

    That's why it all comes down to your intensions for the truck, both pavement vs trails and other mods. And why I say buy once, cry once. Because I've thrown sooo much money down the drain, learning the hard way.

    Nice work! I need to do this to put off doing the ECG bushing upgrade a little longer. We're your boots torn? Mine aren't that I can tell I think that clamp just loosens over time.

    Wife backed into the trailer. Bent the oem chrome bumper.

    Looking at aftermarket replacements and really not seeing much that catches my eye. Also, prices are insane these days for steel, shipping, etc.
    I'll probably get a new oem toyota and paint it black.

    Plus, I want to keep oem hitch since I know it is bombproof.
