just put it on sunday night.

only bad thing is i didn't realize my skid plate won't work with this bumper.. so I'm thinking about cutting/bending the skid plate so it will work. i was able to cut up the stock skid plate and put that up temporarily.

heres what the bumper will look like with the new lights once i wire them up



the new grille that i custom made & painted



took apart the IAC valve and the throttle body and cleaned as much carbon as i could i even cleaned some of the intake manifold.

(back of the throttle body)


(entrance of the intake manifold had a 1/4" layer of carbon that i cleaned off)


(how much i cleaned out.. the other side of the shirt was just as dirty.. i was pulling out chunks of the stuff.)

So not sure if I like the tire carrier or not.. I think it looks ok but i didn't think about this when I was building it but it kinda blocks my rear view mirror.. :/. Oh well it's ok for now I guess.
I'll try to get a picture from the back too..



Any feed back on my home made tire carrier is much appreciated wether it be positive or negative.

radiator support really sucked to remove & install.. i highly suggest not doing it lol. After the fact I'm happy though and it looks like a whole new truck. Although it seemed like nothing lined up the way it should have. Also got a few things installed including new led trail gear blinkers with resistors (one of the blinkers already went out pretty bummed) , hi lift jack locking mount, and some ARB d rings(had to grind them down the casting lines made them not fit.)

Thank you. I appreciate the input on the tire carrier. I'm still not 100% sure what i want to do with it. That one I made is just temporary so I can bob the bed. I think I might go with a full bed rack eventually but really not sure what direction I'm headed.. I definitely want something that goes over the cab though so I can put a nice led bar on it. A Baja style tire carrier would compliment the AllPro bumper for sure though.. Decisions decisions.

ok haven't updated much but I'm starting to make a lot of progress. I ordered a new IAC valve, got gaskets for all the intake pieces(intake manifold, plenum, egr, and injector o rings) cause I'm going to clean all the gunk out then use sea foam to get the deep stuff, 4 gallons of amsoil synthetic ATF and a new toyota trany filter, new air filter, i picked up my BAMF sliders w/ kick up, just got my toytec lift kit in the mail. will be posting pics of that in a little bit.

So I got the coil overs in but ran into a snag on the first leaf I tried to install.. The shackle ended up being seized in the old leaf and I tried everything. So I'm going to oriely and getting some new shackles and then I will be able to finish. One thing that really helped was having the spare tire mounted in the bed it would have sucked trying to get the shocks/leafs out.

Ok so today was another failed attempt at the rear ome leafs. First the shackle on the passenger side was seized into the old leaf. I ended up making shackles from some steel for the passenger side pretty much got that leaf in all the way except for the u bolts. Then tried to take the other leaf off and got the shock off both sides. The front bolt on the driver leaf(the one between the gas tank &frame) was super hard to crack. After splitting a 1/2" drive 19mm socket in half on it I finally got it with an open end wrench and a crow bar using leverage against the leaf spring.. Then after all that that bolt wouldn't budge. It's seized in the metal sleeve inside the leaf bushing. Not to mention when I was trying to get the shackle out of the old leaf I bent the shit out of it and mushroomed the threads of the bolt.. So I ended up having to literally put all of my old stuff back on which sucked majorly. Anyways hopefully I can get this rear suspension on sometime next week I have to order New shackles and new front bolts for the leafs then I think I will be able to get it.

Sweet just finished putting the rear suspension in. So far I love it I've only driven around the block one time though. Looks great too I'm stoaked. It was super easyish this time with all new hardware I didn't really have any problems. My axle almost dropped though I forgot about supporting the diff. That was an easy fix. I plan on doing the diff drop and maybe make my skid plate fit tmrw. I'll have pictures up in the morning.
