'03 TRD Build

I'm gonna go ahead and start this before things get out of hand. My previous vehicle was a Jeep Cherokee that was pretty well built. It was by far the most uncomfortable and frustrating vehicle I have ever owned, and every time I took it off road I broke something. Now I have a Taco and am seeing a shrink to rid me of my Jeep nightmares.

How it sits now:






Stocker:





'03 TRD 3.4L auto
-Sway a Way coilovers
-Camburg UCA's
-Toytec shackles on inverted stock leaf springs that should be in a dumpster
-Rear Bilstein 5100's
-Bamf kickout rock sliders
-4xInnovations rear class III bumper
-M/T classic fake lock II's in black
-265 General Grabber AT2's
-Inchworm e-locker guard
-Homebrew bed bar with mounts for CB antenna, Hi-Lift, 2 bike mounts and a Hella light
-Ammo can storage box in bed
-Homebrew front lightbar bumper thing
-Blitzpro 3lr, 6lz and 5lr dust light

Your off to a great start. I have those same wheels and love them! The fake beadlocks do wonders for protecting my wheels offroad!

Be sure to make a write up for the rocket thrusters and flame throwers. Been looking to do those for a while now.

The time has come that I need to either ditch the swaybar or figure out some sort of disconnect...

Funny thing...lately as I've been driving around I felt like my truck had some extra body roll. The other day me and a friend were going mountain biking and I was driving my truck to the trail head I hit a pot hole. It made a thud, then a bang. I looked under the truck and found the sway bar spindle bolt was gone. I wonder how long it's been gone for.

Anyway...this got me thinking. Rather than a quick disconnect, just remove the bolt? I've been thinking of a quick disconnect myself.

Also, how do you like the AT's. I have General Grabber AW tires and while they're light and do well on the street they kinda suck on dirt. I'm thinking about new tires sometime next year.
