    As far as I know it was kept in the garage. But it is fairly humid in their province and has been raining a lot. The rust is very light, I can scrape it off with my finger. Nothing a quick sanding wont take care off. It won't see any more moister till its painted.

    Hey PP, How did those wheels mount up? I am picking up a set today for my first gen (stock, no lift) and am curious if I will need spacers. Will be running 265-70 tires. They are off a '12 FJ but look the same

    Also this is my first post WEEEE!

    The tires will probably rub the frame at full lock. With a 3" lift I still rub, but the trail grapplers have chunky side walls. I plan on running 1" wheel spacers. What tires are you putting on? The less aggressive the less they'll rub.

    With the stock dunflops you might be okay. I don't have spacers at the moment, It only rubs at full lock.

    Got in on the Bora wheel spacer group buy, picked up 4 0.75". Looks much better and no more frame rubbing at full lock.

    Got a good price on some KM2s. I need more lift, they rub like crazy just driving around the city.

    Got rid of the trail grapplers since I didn't need them anymore. Also wanted something quieter and better on fuel for city/hi way driving. 285/70R17 BFG Rugged Terrian P rated.

    It's home when not on the truck. I love the low ceiling height in my garage...not.

    Good question, my girlfriend and I were discussing it last week. Went camping in the mountains, my truck doesn't really like the long inclines, with bigger tires and loaded with all the camping gear. So I mentioned I really should get the 7th kit and put the SC on. (She doesn't understand what it does.). Might be this summer though. All kinds of things happening, almost bought a 370z. Didn't pan out but now I've got a bunch of room on my line of credit. :D ( but do I really want to go there...?) I've got a full suspension mountain bike frame I've been piecing together since 2003. :eek: Needs about $1000 to finish, would be nice to get that thing done and ride it. My girlfriends getting right into biking, so it would get used often. Then there's the kitchen, house is 40 yrs old and the kitchens "stock".

    Got about $6000 left oweing on the Victory. Now the truck, suspensions been bugging me lately. Really wanting to get the spacers out and OME in, about $1500 for the rest of the parts. Oh yes, can't forget the dog! Been wanting a Husky for a few years, seen some breeders pop up. So, It basically comes down to want I want more. (changes daily). Lately it's been the dog and kitchen. Decisions, decisions...:annoyed:

    Kinda what I'm thinkin. Princess auto had some dog kennels for a wicked price. I picked up 2 to combine for a covered dog run on the side of my house. Mountain bike frame and parts are going back in the closet, I'll do it up next year if my GF is still into biking. I've got other bikes to ride in the mean time. Got some contact info for a husky breeder that might be having a litter soon. Around August I'll order up the rest of the OME stuff and maybe October the 7th injector kit.
