Gonna have to chop up my custom crossmember again...needs even more adjusting than originally planned for.

That does have a nice look to it, but I would rather go with a full bumper. Even if it adds weight, if you are going somewhere that requires a winch then armor might not be a bad thing. And then there's the zombies, of course..

Aren't you into the bed at 18"? I think DFTtacoma has 18", but he has a bedcage, he might have details in his build page

How hard do you guys think it would be to just install the rear locking diff from ARB..... i think that might be my new plan. and go on ahead with some URD equal length headers

yeah... doesn't sound too bad as long as i got someone with experience to walk me through it. that would be the only way i would do something like this. And there arent any gears to press which is a plus because lately i have heard 2 separate stories where someones gearing wasn't done right and they grinding and humming.

Shouldn't be too bad as long as you have the right tools.

You gotta remove two bearings and repress them into the locking diff. The air line is cake. Installing the front locker made the rear locker a walk in park.

TRD tow hitch or TRD tow hook ?? If tow hitch, it would be a regular tacoma hitch not a trd specific one. If the trd hook, I may have one as soon as brandon finishes making some shackle mounts... or wait around and buy one off him too...
