Used the X-Jack to rescue a heep. The jack does have a tendancy to roll, so having someone brace the vehicle being lifted is something I'll do more of in the future.

Yes, the tire is off the rim because they tried driving on the flat.

I've been looking at the X-Jack. I've seen air bladders used for lifting before and it seems like a good idea that addresses some of the shortcomings of the Hi-Lift. Not cheap, though!

I don't know the differences between the name brand X-jack and the Titans, but I'm guessing they're the same bag.

Take a look here.

Thanks! Something like that would be ideal for lifting the dainty frame of my pop-up camper, too.

I've never seen one of those in action before, or ever even heard of someone buying one. I figured they were junk! That thing is awesome...

O/T, mocked up where I'd like to mount my CB antenna.

Tow truck drivers around my town have been very pleased with similar products, but their's are used with a compressor, and don't lift nearly as high. The main concern seems to be stability at full lift, which is just as much a problem with a Hi-Lift jack. Locking in the transfer case would also help immobilize the truck.

Finally got my OME lift w/Dakars on after two days, but ran out of time on the sliders, so that's going to wait until next week. The lift wasn't that bad. It was chasing after some tools that took up time.

So torn on colours if I get a 2013.

Last year I lost out on the last Spruce in my area (damn dealer sold it when I had a deposit on it).

Nautical/Spruce/White are all so nice on the Tacoma.

Looks very good! How hard was it to mount the ANB Rack? I was looking at one of those to mount a RTT on.

Removed my K&N intake

I bought this K&N 77 series metal tube intake two months ago. I also bought the flowmaster American thunder exhaust system for my truck....you're welcome www.autoanything.com

I must say...I loved it at first.

The additional power and the sound was awesome. After driving around with it for two months I put the stock intake back on tonight. The combination of the loud exhaust and the loud intake was too much.

Now it's time to look for a quieter solution. I already miss the additional boost behind the gas pedal.

Not bad. The first time took about an hour.

The second time took about fifteen minutes.

I had a RTT in mind when I had him fab the rack.
