    Did the 6.5" speakers just bolt in without adapters?

    Looks like you could use a set of those Hellwig add a leafs that I just did on the rear.

    I noticed that as well. He's got some Bro Lean going. Is that what the cool kids call it? No offense to your Hellwig choice, but for increased payload and some actual lift I would go with an Add-A-Leaf option from Wheeler's or Icon.

    I'm likely going with this one with free shipping.

    Looked into all 3 and honestly the Hellwigs fit my needs the best. I rarely ever haul anything more than can be picked up at a big box store. I also needed less than an inch of lift to level it out which was easy to dial in since they are adjustable.

    For $100, I call it a win. Free shipping with Amazon Prime also. ;)

    Open wire. Don’t know why. There’s no connectors between it and he fuse box. It’s odd

    Mine did just go right in without adapters on my access cab

    In other news

    Put some new 100w Osram H4's in my headlights today and finally did the rear diff breather relocation mod. Now I'm ready for high water if this tropical storm hits us this weekend

    It’s actually fairly level when on a flat surface. These pics are on a slight incline driveway.

    I'm missing one nut for my sway bar bracket. Where the bracket circled below mounts to the frame there are 2 bolts. Can't seem to find one online.
    Anyone know where I can find one?

    I have a random group of nuts at home but none are the right size.

    I do so much hauling and towing and the 02’ rear end stays real high with no helper springs ever. I’m amazed at these springs as they never give up. Still have rake (I likey) with Billybobs 5100 set at one notch up which looks stock if you ask me.

    Not sure why as I see some Tundras with grandma sag in the rear.

    Maybe the off road package is the key for me?

    It's a long story.
    My username on Tacoma World was "because_minitruck" and I sold my taco for my tundra, so "mini" didn't quite fit, hence "because_v8". But I wanted my user names here and on TW to match. I was thinking of antonyms for "mini" when I remember a spongebob bit about changing from "M for mini, to W for wumbo" and thought it was fitting and only the initiated would get the joke without a lengthy explanation lol

    What happened? I thought you had already hooked the sway bar up the other day? You get that link to tighten up?

    Its on there. I've just been rolling with only one bolt secure on that side instead of two. Each bracket has two bolts. Probably not a huge deal as it feels secure but I'd rather get the other one back in place.

    Mine has been doing something like that between 4th and 5th lately too. I'm thinking it's a little low on fluid from when I replaced a cooler line clamp. It's similar to cutting myself and thinking wow that could have been pretty bad, good thing I didn't lose too much blood and then.. Man I'm light headed.

    At least that's my hopes. I just got the torque app and the Bluetooth obd2 adapter so I can actually see the trans temp when I get around to my drain and fill.

    For those with a modern, Bluetooth enabled touch screen, anybody try to connect a bluetooth obd2 to it and display the gauges on your touch screen? Just a thought... Would be neat

    I’ve pretty much determined it’s an issue inside. Fluids bright red and I checked the level with the special tool Toyota gives us. I have a feeling it’s failing accumulator piston seals. But I want to do a shift kit so I’ll replace that while I’m in there

    If it is just seals it’s saveable for way cheaper than a new trans FYI
