- Got around to finally putting the badge back on the passenger door. I hate the cold.
- Hanging around, waiting on stuff. Mid-Travel should be here sometime early this month, I think.
- Got a call from Billy at Brute Force today. Bumper should be shipping here around the end of the week, early next week.

Yeah. Cause I hated that everyone of my photos had the same date (1/1/07) in them...but I'm a lazy shit. Fuck resetting the time/date with new batteries.

Always had an artsy fartsy side. It's a big side really. Was once in a graphic design program. Designed a logo for a company my dad tried to start. Flow and layout of the previous ones always bugged me. This one is final.

Plus I kind of wanted to start over now that I'm done cheaping out on mods.

Oh okay lol. Nice!

Can't wait to see the new front suspension setup when you get it! The rear bumper too!

As antsy as I'll be to get it on, I want to take some time, take care of some minor annoyances.

I'm thinking of just tearing the whole front down. The UCAs and COs/struts were happening anyway, but I'm considering looking into some alignment gussets as a few of mine are fubar.

Gussets would mean dicking with the LCAs, again. The d/s side should be ok, but I made it ugly in the process. Get some gussets, paint over a few areas with some black. I saw Anthonyn (PSU) and his painted LCAs and got a little jelly.

The p/s side I don't know about, they could be seized, dunno. Might be the time to find out before trying the alignment after the lift is on.

I need to do a little touch up painting behind the front bumper, a few spots on bolts heads have flaked off.

I need rear shocks to. Thinking of getting some bilsteins to start.

Still...need a "2" to complete the "TRunner" grille emblem.

....but I needs monies for that stuff. I blew $650 this week between coilover rebuild/shipping and paying off the bumper, I'm taxed out for a week or two.

Sounds like you've got a lot going on and plans setup to get this all done lol. Let me know if you need any help with any of that!

Thanks for letting me know about that Gun Metal plasti-dip. I've thought about doing the rear bumper to match my wheels and front. With the front needing a recoat as well, i may just go with a Gun Metal plasti-dipped rear bumper.

Rachael tore the rear bumper half-way off a Honda Civic in Meijer's parking lot this afternoon...she was driving the truck. Hit it with the front bumper. She won't be driving it again for a while. Not real happy. No damage to the truck.

No problem man! Touching up the plastidip is much easier than actual paint.

Wow, sounds like you've had a fun day :( Glad the truck is okay though.

I don't think I've ever had to touch up something I used PD on. Why I like the stuff. :D

Afternoon sucked. More just mad that she needs to watch what the fuck she's doing, she's been told time after time to open her damn eyes. Girl loves running to potholes, I mean right the fuck into em'.

- Had a "taco wave" moment while helping a buddy move his daughters bunk. Sitting at a light a sand mica 2nd gen is making a right in front of me. Had a nice truck, had some mods done, he was glancing over at mine, so I gave a wave and was recripcated with the same.

- Busy week Planned. Simply update this post, no need for pointless bumps noone cares about.

* 4.15: Monday Lunch Break: Fixed broken white wire on the back side of the HO2 connector. Returned HO2. Ordered 1 UCA sleeve from Total Chaos.
* 4.16: Tuesday Lunch Break: Oil change & Rotate. Overdue by my standards. Need to balance tires.
* 4.17: Wednesday: Lunch Break: Cleaned the gunk off the coilover threads/body. After work: Sisters car: Oil change & Rear pads/rotors.
* 4.18: Thursday: Found a place that should be able to give me a nitrogen charge. Bought 2 new lock screws for the top ring.
* 4.19 Friday: Lunch: Picked up Brute Force rear bumper. After work: Installed new bumper.

Before: All dirty

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...ium/dirty6.jpg

After: Clean!

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...um/Clean17.JPG

Cleaned the threads with a wire wheel. Replaced the metal vavle caps with plastic ones. Metal ones tend to corrode to the vavle stem in Ohio. Also visable is the new bolt(s) I purchased to serve as the lock screw for the top ring. Sticks out a little, if this is unwise someone say so, I think it should be ok though.

Brute Force Rear Plate Bumper.


http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...m/100_1599.JPG

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../100_16001.JPG


Only installed currently. Needs painted. Need a couple d-rings and isolators. Excited about having a hitch, won't ever use it for anything large but it'd be nice to be able to move my toolbox if/when needed.

The tube-gate is gonna go as well. Replace it with a truck net for awhile.

Looks good! I picked up my d-rings from trails west. I wanna say they were $15-$20 there when I bought mine.

Maybe hitched mounted winch :anon:

I just took my net off since I finally got around to fixing the rust spot on my tailgate lol. I liked the look of it and the visibility over a regular tailgate for sure. Hauling stuff with a tailgate net, now that's a different story. I also felt a little like a redneck with my tailgate net :D

Trails West. Buncha DBs. :rolleyes:. Tried to get a job there recently. The Andersons should have what I need. Want to have some neon green colored rings with black isolators.

Hitch mounted winch...trying to say something??? Not a bad idea for real though...

I haven't had any problems with them myself, I try to look for what I need online or in a closer store usually. I haven't really seen d-rings other places but I haven't really been looking either lol.

A hitch mounted winch would be pretty useful actually lol. Especially if you get quick cable disconnects and you can have it there when you need it and off when you don't
