Good call and it is not all that hard on my 2WD Tacoma. Engine, manual transmission, and rear end oil cost me right arounf $150. Cabin filter was less than 10. I would expect for your Tacoma the cost would be loser to $200 using a quality syn oils. Plus I think you have to change plugs as well.

Any chuffing from that port design? What made you decide to port it instead of going sealed? Sealed would allow for an even smaller enclosure.

won't know until I get everything else installed. for a 8W3v3 the difference in size between sealed and ported isn't much at all.

Yeah, I saw that it wasn't much but in an application where size is a concern that's that much smaller you could have made it. How much room do you have from the back of the sub to the back wall on the box? Also, is that white cup on the front the port exit? Kind of hard to tell from the angles of the pictures but I assume so. Where did you decide to mount your amp?

just under 5/8". yes, that's the port exit. most likely the amp with be mounted under the passenger seat.

People like you suck. You should be considerate of the ones working on your vehicle. Would you want to work on a crusty truck?

Completed my 30K Mile Service today. The stealership wanted just over $500 for the job, so I said screw that and just did it myself. After buying all the parts and renting a lift for 2 hours, I only paid $136.12. Here is what all I did today:

Changed reaf diff oil
Changed engine oil and filter
Changed spark plugs
Rotated tires
Complete lube job
Checked torque on prop shaft
Changed air filter
Changed cabin air filter

Good for you on the self-service. From all the derision they receive, I'm impressed that you kept the Rugged Trails for 30k.

Made sway bar links out of 100% stainless steel purchased hardware (no custom fab).

EDIT: These rod ends are too small. Will need larger rod ends with 1/2" bore and 3/4" shank. Eventually I found heavy duty ball joint links: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/pro...bar-links.html

Very nice. Have you found a way to run off road with them disconnected, without having the ends flail around and cause damage?
