    Cool truck!!!! Welcome to the club of no power anything!!! HAHA!! Im about to get some 16'' rims off a 09 tacoma this Sunday. I thought about painting my stock rims but Im just not good at painting stuff and talked myself out of it. What size tires do you have? Because I know my 265/75/15's are like trying to turn blocks on my 4banger. I have this issue of I want big tires but dont like the lack of power that comes with the 2.7l.

    Thanks Will, Yea man i do gotta get down there sometime, maybe one day when im on christmas break from school. Cause right now im just too bogged down with school and work. :( And i got exams soon. But you wanna just trade antennas, i got this 102" whip just sitting in the garage, it probably needs a spring though, i just never bought one for it.

    Yea it only took like 25 minutes. Had to get a new tube of grease, used all i had hahaha

    your awesome bro. yea i dont really need the 102" so you can have it. I like the way it looks but where i park at uncc i park in parking deck and its just inconvient, so if i put it back on there it wouldnt be for like 3 years so you can have it.

    haha...i kinda figured you were....there are 6 grease fitting on it one at the trans...3 in the middle...then 2 back at the axle...some of the fitting are hard to get at. and i would clean them before you try to grease them...it was hard to get the grease to go in before we cleaned them.
