    You guys just fix refrigerators and freezers :luvya:

    It's Goatskin; really just wanted a leather glove with cut resistance so these just seemed perfect.

    My Tillman gloves were the same Cut level 3 as these but not made of leather.

    So I've toying with the idea of a Tundra. Maybe even the hybrid.

    I've been wanting to be able to take the dirtbike(s) along on family camping trips, and the wife veto'd a toy hauler style trailer (the ones my 4Runner could pull are admittedly a tight fit for us/kids/dog/gear), but ironically enough she seemed okay with the idea of a new truck. I mean, I know which one is going to be more expensive, lol... But she really likes our travel trailer.

    I added up the various weights and I'm likely to easily be within 200 lbs of the GVWR with a couple bikes and gear towing with a 3rd (or 4th) gen Tacoma. I really don't like the idea of maxing out the cargo capacity like that. Just towing the 3200# (dry) trailer with the 4Runner is about the max I'd want to go. So that pretty much leaves the Tundra unless I commit heresy and go to another brand, lol.

    Anyhoo, anyone have thoughts on the new twin turbo? I am very excited at the prospects of the MPGs (~24 hwy), and even more if the hybrid version ever gets the MPGs published, assuming the hybrid motor isn't just a power adder.

    I'm a little hesitant to get the 1st model year of a major redesign, but Toyota's motors are almost always bullet proof (except the 3.0L). Running the numbers, I could (potentially) break even in about 10 years if I go for an older model (cheaper purchase but shit MPGs). I know I'd hate myself every time I hit the gas pump with a 14mpg 5.7L.

    Everything but the driveshaft. B03A - 410
    It's the best decision that can be made right now.

    Toyota 47L A/C Clutch shims. I think the Tacoma and 4Runner use the same shims.

    Clutch clearance checks out a .020. For under, $40 replaced the clutch bearing instead of buying a new compressor or clutch pack.

    I'll tell my wife you said that.

    :rofl:

    Some friends have said that since my bike is plated, why don't I just follow on the bike. But again, wife vetos the idea of her towing the trailer everywhere.

    It's also a 350, so it's not like it's a beast on the highway.

    Pretty sure Toyota has used the 3.5 TT overseas for awhile now. I think youd be fine with a first model year.
