Gearcrunchers build Super White double cab

2010 TRD Sport Rally 5 speed automatic . --------------------------------------------------------------------

Trifecta folding box cover made by Extang . Here is an example of where to buy it http://www.extang.com/store/do/product/Trifecta

Dick Cepek DC-2 rims 17X9 and 4.5 backspacing " LUG CENTRIC " If you plan to run these rims I recommend purchasing hub centric spacers in order to get a good balance . The tires stick out of the wheel wells at least an inch and although it looks cool , the additional force they put on the front end makes for a slight wobble at higher speeds . The additonal tire outside the wheel well will throw rocks and scratch your paint . With this said , dont go this way if you are off road .They are difficult to balance and thats using the Haweka adapter ( tsu00296.pdf)and road force balancing with hub centric wheel spacers . Keep in mind that our Tacoma,s need a tire rotation every 5000 miles .If you have a lazy or bent steel belt in one of your tires , you are going to hate these
They are available here for you Canadain guys http://www.softys.ca/wheels/truck/dc2.html


The above picture shows Weathertech digital floor matts with the TRD logo and TRD pedals .
These Wethertech liners are the best thing you can do to keep your floor clean .Highly recommended .
A couple seat belt and neck cushions . Very comfortable during long trips . Do an E bay search as they are always listed .

.
.
The picture below shows Raxman Led hood lights with famous fabrication hood mounts . These are awesome lights !! . You can see animals from a long distance away while driving at night . Deer and moose are no longer an issue since there eyes shine back at you when these spot pods are on . Highway signs are also very reflective . These lights do illuminate the hood a little but it doesnt effect driving and there is no glare on the windshield because of their placement . With this said , they are about the best and cheapest mod to gain some extra protection when driving at night or in fog . The lights , switch , brackets and wiring should be under $200 bucks by the time your done
Famous fabrication hood light brackets can be found here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/fam...kets-leds.html
Raxman spot pods can be found here and he does ship to Canada cheap http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...pot-flood.html


.

Toyota Factory style push switch ( amber)for LED hood lights. Fits in the blank to the lower left side of the steering wheel without any filing or cutting . Pop the blank out and pop the new switch in place . You will need to wire the lower led into your dimmer switch power . The switch is a 3 amp and the spot pods draw 1.34 amps each when powered on . This means you will need a 3 amp fuse wired into the circuit . If you want to get technical , you can always add a relay to the circuit just to be safe .$4 bucks on e bay for the relay .

How to download repair manual from TIS

The toyota information system contents toyota vehicle repair manual which used to be PDF links, it's now chm mode which is only webpages. I am trying to download the manual for my vehicle in two days and here is the fastest way I figured out.

Please share if you have better idea. I can't make those hyper-link work since they all became image in the pdf files.



Tools you will need


Firefox

PDFCreator

TIS login account ($15/2 days)


Install PDFCreator, create a new profile, change the Auto-save option; Change the filename to <Title>, update the directory for auto-save. You need create a new printer to use this new profile, which can auto save your pdf to particular folder.



Login TIS and open the repair manual, for the first page, make sure you selected the new PDFCreator printer as your current printer and print your first page, double check the pdf file at the auto-save folder and make sure that fits you want. I took the footer and header off so it looks much nicer.


For firefox, type “about:config” in the address bar and add print.always_print_silent as Boolean and set it to true.


Now, for each page you click on the left, there is a print icon on the top right corner, click that will print a new pdf file to the auto-save folder. For each page, you will need two clicks to save to pdf format.


Go through all your pages and hit the printer icon. You should be able to download the repair manual in couple hours. The PDF files will have the full text title in the pdf file name, which you can easily search.


I got my two vehicles' repair manual done in 7 hours.

PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS WITH A PM . Dont mess up my build page like the guy below did
