    Can someone explain what a shift kit is?

    I was checking my diff breather mod for leaks an noticed the passenger side of my trans x-member is a bit crushed and torn. I remember coming down on it hard once at the off road park. But I never noticed it til just now.

    Is this a problem?

    its modifying the valve body with drilling and changing internal parts of the valve body for a harder shift
    you'll feel the shift more, but the clutch packs will usually last longer and you also gain some acceleration from the quicker time down between gears. your effectively modifying line pressure

    Who makes aftermarket plate rear bumpers for these trucks. Toyota wants way too much for a new one. And aftermarket still is kinda pricy for something made in China. Rather support an American builder for it



    Or I’ll weld one up. But it’d be ugly or the costal off-road, but modified, I don’t want to cut my bedsides

    To my understanding those breathers are already up high

    Made me think of the 1970's, though these are newer:

    The lack of bumper options is seriously disappointing. This guy has one made by Move Bumpers.

    It's for a DC though. Are they wider?

    I've seen brute Force has one and I saw another brand that looked identical to it imo, but I don't recall which brand it was.
    I'm planning to buy the coastal of road bumper

    Man, I want to like those but their full loop option looks goofy. I want the full protection but I'm not crazy about this design.

    side note, this guy has some serious alignment issues.. Those poor tires.

    It honestly looks like someone tied a bow on the front of the truck.

    They’re worded technically. But not the sheet metal, just the flares.

    Cost wise the costal interests me. But I’d have to modify the thing a bit to remove the side protection

    Brute Force is good stuff. Not sure if they have rear options.
    https://www.bruteforcefab.com/1st-gen-tundra---sequoia-front.html

    Iron Bull seems okay if not out of price range. A few guys on an old forum went that route. I like the ones without the top bars.
    https://www.ironbullbumpers.com/collections/toyota-tundra

    Can't speak to quality or service for this company, I saw their Tacoma bumper in google images and followed the trail to their website. The Tundra rear bumper would interes me more if it spanned the whole truck.

    We don't have a lot of options for buying bolt up armor unfortunately.

    Today I gave up and pulled both ABS fuses. I'm one of those anal SOB's that hate's having any lights on my dash but this is better than the false ABS activation.

    I have a feeling they do but they don't have it posted. There are hidden first gen items with a few companies, off the menu stuff. Like going to In-N-Out and ordering animal style fries.

    @toyotech2016 do you know if they have a rear bumper? I think yours was a custom one off right?

    The low tire light has been on my truck since i bought it. I hate that light. Someday I'll either buy new tmps or just pull the bulb.

    I'm going to buy the front bumper without any tuning. Then have my buddy who's going to assemble it for me, fab a grill guard to weld onto the bumper. Something like this:

    That looks substantially better. I'm only interested in full coverage because of instances like this. Her 4Runner was totalled last week from a deer strike. If she had a bumper with the loop it would have likely saved her rig.

    Instead, all 8 airbags deployed.

    I wish ARB would make their Summit bumper for our trucks.

    All they make is the basic Safari bumper.

    Well coastal off roads.site.says they can do custom stuff if you request it. Or you could go the route I'm taking and order it plain, then have a trusted welder customize it.

    All 8 airbags deploying will total something pretty quickly.
