killer. it was a bit loud at first, but once I got it broken-in and all the fittings nice and tight, I loved it.

some throttle response increase, not sure about power or MPG. but man does it sound good - i will try to get a decent clip up someday...

**Build Update**

Lots of updates about to roll in .. I have been spending more time with the truck than the camera and computer...


I picked up a new prerunner style front bumper, sleeved DOM, made by SurfInferno - great guy to deal with and a great quality bumper.

Some pics of the tear down:






I had the bumper powdercoated the same textured black as the Pack Rack to match - the rack is about to get welded together and re-coated

Without the skid:






With the bare aluminum skid installed (would love to get a logo or something laser cut for air flow)




Moar pics to come of the KR Tiregate installed and some new off road lights and switches.

Photos of the KR Fab Tiregate install - thanks again to jjbsocal!!




A close-up of the new hardware installed to freshen it up, including welded t-handles with locks (I know you can practically snap these with your hand - but it deters a lot of people)




Moar pics coming ...

Saw your truck on the 5 today (creepy sounding?), looks insane in person. Going to have to check it out up close without endangering others on the freeway

creepy? what does that mean?
I also had my bike rack in the hitch, so it looked extra rigged-out.


Will get some good shots of the mounted tent soon - it worked great in Ocotillo last weekend for RecklessTaco's b-day.

"creepy" as in stalking you and made a point to pass on drivers side then slow down and let you pass on passenger side to get a good look at the truck.

The bed rack and tent really stands out. Also The tire gate also caught my attention. Truck looks and sounds really good. Never thought I'd be thinking about exhaust but yours sounds pretty good running up the 5

Also just noticed in another post you said you re-geared. Did you get that done locally? Trying to find a good shop to regear when I have to fix my front diff again.

I got it done at Socal Supertrucks in San Bernardino.

You will get lots of opinion from people when you price out gears and install so just stick with what makes you comfortable. I tried to contact the current group buy vendor for gears but didn't get a response. Socal wanted about $150 more total for the parts (Nitro gears and install kits) and had them the next day ready for install, so I couldn't really argue.

Install was pricey - $450 per axle, but totally worth it. They had two guys tag-team the install and I was out of there within 4 hours including a free alignment. They did amazing work and the gears feel perfect so far.

After some research today, it appears the speed sensors for Tacoma are in the trans like most vehicles so re-gearing will alter your speedo. Good news is that with 4.56 and 285/75 my speedo is only running 1-2MPH under True Speed (tested with GPS)

I would talk to Casey at Socal for more info, tell him I sent you - "David with the silver Taco" should be enough to remember me - mention TW also as he is looking for more business to come from the forums.

im not familiar with the ecgs bushings .. will have to research those.

I dont have any new vibrations with the gears even in 4x4
the steering wheel has a new shake between 60-65, but I am pretty sure that is due to unbalanced wheels
