Yea definitely. 7 1/2 months to go.

Looking for an iPad 2 16GB w/3G black right now, used. That's going to be the nav unit. Talking to MJP2 and Aaron a lot about cage work, figuring out how I want to go about my A-pillar. We'll see how fast the rest of the work goes on the truck, I might start the cage during my 2 weeks off.

5 months to go, just ordered Fox 2.0 3'' Travel bumpstops for the rear and a Hella horn to replace my stock one, which is half broken and comically weak.

I'd go +2'' TC kit if I were you.

Polypro I guess cancelled the bumpstops out of the order... I will have to try to get on a phone them tonight to see why.

Still have about a 100 days before I get home. Wife starts it once a week and rolls it in and out of the garage to keep the tires from getting flat spots.

It was a sick jump at pismo! We hit it atleast 15 times over the weekend and the landing was soft. My ungusseted motor mounts held up so I call that a win lol

Haha I guess that is the golden measurement for tacomas - if the motor mounts break. I had a motor mount push through the frame's wall (mount didn't break). I was lucky and had a very skilled fabricator who was able to lift the motor, get the frame wall back in position, and weld everything up. That was a while ago and it has held though a lot of hard hits.

I can't see the video from this computer I will have to check it out later.

Pismo is great. I went twice while I was still living in California.
