It appears your front coils are really stiff, and I doubt you will ever fully compress them on the rocks to the point of impact with fender
The taco looks awesome with those wide tires
Can't wait to hit the pits with you again, no doubt you will crawl over everything that challenged you last time
I need to do what Colin was saying and pop the sway bar loose and see how much difference it makes. I'm pretty sure that's why my front looks so stiff. But then, that might not be a bad thing in terms of tire clearance.
At any rate, I trimmed the plastic sort of half ass bent the pinch weld over with a set of vise grips in preparation to hammer it flat...and then noticed that that might have given me enough to clear. I took it out and drove in circles in a parking lot and got no rubbage. Have to see how it does in the pits and if necessary, I can always flatten it some more.
I also clearanced the slider legs. Man, it sure was nice to not hear that maddening knocking sound with every bump. Good idea on the bed though. I already took the bolts out so we'll have to see how hard it rubs and I might just do that.
And thanks! It looks even better in person than it does in the pics...at least I think so. Well, maybe except for the pic I'm using for my sig. It looks pretty good in that one.
Guy is getting close to getting the Runner done. Have to see about setting up a trip to Ocala with him so we can have a dual debut.
Honestly, though, I really really want to do the shake down riding trails at Richloam. I wanna see how that Lincoln-locked front end is going to act on a nice soft sandy/muddy trail before I put it on some hard rocks.
