Subbed... :cool:

First thing is first. I was going to start my bobbed bed this weekend but need to get it running 100% first.
When i start it up it will run fine, sometimes it stumbles a bit on idle. when i rev it up it boggs out like its not getting fuel, however if i drive it down the road it runs fine. ONLY acts up when its reved up but drives fine down the road with a load on it???. I got bank 1 system lean code.
Replaced spark plug wires and plugs with no change, # 3 cylinder has a larger spark plug in it ( my guess someone stripped it and tapped next plug size... yeah i know:confused:) but it works i guess.
cleaned maf sensor and put a new filter in it.
still does it bogs/chokes out when reved around 3k but will clear up if reved higher than 3k

Second problem: Dam this thing rides rough compared to my 4runner! i feel every bump. dropped air pressure to 35 pounds all around made it slightly better. Bodylift make a terrible ride?

Lastly front end squeaking when suspension is worked.. Sway bar bushings?? if so off it comes

If you just attach pics to your message it will use thumbnails. If you post photos to a hosting site like photobucket and link the image then it will display them larger.

looks good man

Good looking truck, sub'd for the build.

I wish I could answer your questions, but I don't know anything else you can do (besides what you have already done) for the engine problem. As far as the lift. I'd guess 3 inch body lift and maybe the 5100s are adjusted for a lift as well :notsure:

But one question. You said you're going to bob your bed, but it looks like your bed rack just barely fits in the bed you have now. Seems like if you bob your bed, you may be "bobbing" your rack as well. just my $.02

rmtofast 04-01-2013 10:12 AM

Thanks guys, and yeah i was going to bob it but decided not to, and just build a nice rack, we are going to sleep in the bed this summer when i get the tent so she talked me into keeping the bed stock length. as for the motor running bad i got it figured out, there was a loose coil wire where the coil harness plugs into #3 coil:cool: runs great now.
as for the suspension as far as i can tell now it has 3 inch body lift
stock front coils on bilistiens and a 1inch top spacer, rear is add a leaf with stock pack, stock shackles bilistein shocks, For now...:D

Sweet! Looks like you figured it all out! Can't wait to see how your truck turns out! It's looking good so far

Very nice looking truck! I like what you did with the headrests.

rmtofast 04-01-2013 09:05 PM

Thanks, simple free mod I really couldnt stand how they stuck up 4 inches and wouldn't go down the whole way im only 5'6 so they were way tall for me so out came the grinder

rmtofast 04-01-2013 09:06 PM

What all do you guys think I should attach to my bed rack??

rmtofast 04-06-2013 07:45 PM
