Not 100% on long travel just yet, this is still my daily driver.

I was thinking a full mid travel setup for now and see where it goes.

Wow, the bed came out great!

I like the idea of no tailgate and rear bumper, looks really clean!

The bed brace a ma bobber thinga ma doo hickies were a creation of Jason Speed freak as he installed the rear glass, They turned out great.

They are welded and bent for extra stability.

I am going to run a rear tube bumper soon but in the meantime I pulled the gate and stock stuff off, I chirp the tires a little easier for now though so thats the down side, I must have removed 60-75 lbs back there.

Definately a tough truck! I like those gator flares. Very cool Tacoma neat bike too-years ago I had a Mount Fuji LTD-miss that one. I just bought a KHS Urban Xpress 24-speed for some therapeutic excercise you obviously do some serious trail riding. Good for you man-enjoy the ride!

The fans were actually a pretty good investment, I ordered a bunch of stuff from LCengineering at once back in 09 and this was part of the goodies bunch.

They were kind of a pain to install as they are a universal to all Tacoma fit and the old fan and shrouds had to come off.
