Yeah, that's what I figured. Got a set priced out, just waiting for the bumper and OME lift kit to arrive. Great job on the truck - do you have any inside pics of the rocker switch for your lights and the CB install? I'm kind of using your build as a template, so to speak.

I'll try and get some later today. Nothing special. I put the switch in an empty access slot next to the 2 air conditioning vents on the center bezel. Worked out great. CB in the ashtray slot.

Thx!!

I'm guessing your reffering to an "e-locker"?
The powertrax no slip that i installed is "full time". No button to push as the 4 cyls never came with the option of an e-locker.
Works quite well. Also there is no "ratcheting, popping, or any noise issues with the powertrax no slip ccompare to other conventional "lunch box" type lockers.

I have rocked it in several types of conditions.
Mud, rocks, snow, gravel and daily street use. Works awesome with zero problems. Think i have close to 40k on it now.

Its from lowes, not sure if its the slim. I didnt like it at first because of the angular cuts on the bottom. I really wanted it "squared" but couldnt find anyone that made one.

Do you have any other pics of it? I was just looking at one at lowes. It was only 12" deep which I like since the DC bed is already small. But didn't like that it measured 61.5" and the bed is like 59-60? Does it hang over a lot?

Re-read your build journal and I didn't see anything on your 1250 watt inverter install. Any links?

Yea. Ive got a toolbox and a tiregate now, so def not hauling and bikes anymore.
The R1 got stolen a few years back and the bug hasn't hit me again yet.
However it fit pretty good at the time and i used to haul it back and forth from sc to ind several times a year.

Sorry to bring up an older thread, just wanted to say awesome truck! Searched for some builds with the 2.7 liter (for my build-2.7 5spd access 4wd) and this one popped up. Glad to see you like the 4.56, I have the 4.30's and was considering 4.88's. After reading your build it looks like the 4.30 will push what I want (33's/plate bumper/topper) ok. And that locker, exactly what I was looking for! Again, awesome, detailed build. Lots of motivation here, this one should be stickied as it answers TONS of questions for first time Taco owners!

Thats rough bro, i haul mine with a trailer, but i had to pick my brothers up because his fuel pump went out on the highway, we had to put the rear end at an angle and it barely stayed in.
