    I may have added a few more lumens to the Red Truck with a slightly used Blitzpro 21S LED bar. Fits perfectly under the hoop on my Marlin bumper

    I still need to get the mounts figured out but that will be very close to the final placement sans the zip ties.


    Here are a couple of shots of my nearly completed transmission tunnel cover

    My garage is so empty now

    What is Brave doing to it?

    That trans tunnel cover is sweet! I might have to try and copy you :cool:.

    Got the truck back. I'm very impressed with Daves work. Didn't put the grab handle on right now. They seemed like they would be in the way (of my head)in one spot. I need to get some bar padding for sure. He didn't tie the cage to the frame due to my Ghetto Fab sliders and some body mount interference. When I get some new sliders I will get them tied in then.

    Here are a couple more pics

    X2, very nice. Do you plan to add a dash bar?

    I will possibly add a dash bar. A harness bar behind the seats will be added after I get my Corbeaus installed.

    Weather was awesome. Saturday was the mid 60's and breezy.

    We hit some Pretty good stuff: Twister about 3 times, the backside where Jason flopped a few years ago. Going down JP Expressway was awesome. I got back at Whatever from last year with some guidance from Jason. Shake Rattle and Roll was good fun. Clydes Ravine was good as usual. Did all the regular stuff mainly. Saw an FJ break a tierod in Twister. I did the rock garden for the first time.

    I won some 5/16 x 100 Firewire Synthetic winch line.

    Carnage included my cell phone, a little body damage, A TC leak and driveline rattle.

    Going to look at that stuff this week.

    some pics

    Pulled my rear third a while back

    Found a lot of this

    20130530_201137_zps07e3e398_dc4de7b01868d756f9b102c8a055b927f6cb28b3.jpg

    Got the rebuilt V6 3rd that I blew up 2 years ago cleaned up and installed a triple drilled pinion flange and double checked all the fasteners

    20130530_201155_zps2518c690_612e2623ca582af2a6f6c653717bc1426147c933.jpg

    Installed some new led's in the bed (with a lower profile) to replace the old skool halogens.

    Blitzpro 6in bars

    Still trying to find some time to get it all back together. Fingers crossed that the drivetrain noise goes away

    Started working on the red truck a little.

    Blitzpro tube mounts for the Hawk21S led bar

    20130705_172759_zpsa41fe59a_c4eff3f5b2fdf99c19b1580423c055b1be8b1e55.jpg

    I got my electronic flasher in from superbrightleds and used the Rob method (thanks) and made some short jumpers to get it plugged in on the driver side fuse panel

    20130723_191332_zps693bec7e_2016d5cf829856ddf8c9af056c89f96b41424358.jpg

    I also added 3/4" 2 led lights (on each side) to the front marker lights to replace my running lights and wired the existing running light as my blinker. They utilize the same plug so it was a simple swap between the 2 plugs to do so. I finished cleaning up the exterior wiring on the front bumper while I was at it.


    I am still in the process of finishing up my Trans tunnel cover and added some heat/noise deadener (GT Mat)to the underside of the top panel.

    20130723_191348_zps0450c75a_cbfe67469760a581e8d3aa0697d571b42c80fdd0.jpg

    I got a new set of Delrin frame bushings from Davez Offroad to replace my almost non-existent ones that in there now. I will tackle that this weekend along with installing a set of Sky's banana shackles that I have had for a while.

    Thread on Pirate where I found them:

    http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyo...lrin-frame-tube-bushings-spring-bushings.html

    I also scored some free exhaust wrap from a co-worker that will hopefully reduce some of the cab floor temps.

    I have a couple little projects to finish up including the rear axle re-assembly.

    Got the Exhaust wrapped from the collector to the front of the muffler

    20130726_150218_zps37df2cba_15f9b49ac4ae1aea170c6e15ea48f1737371f9d3.jpg


    All new rear studs in the rear housing

    20130726_150133_zpse97d92e2_8e85b0920d852554fba389188dd6cbc1ef69fdd2.jpg

    I have also been working on this bed rack. I added 1.5x1.5x 1/4" aluminum angel to each end. the runners on the outside are 1.5" 6061 Al tubing. I need one more piece to put in the middle of the rack and then need to source something to use for a floor. I havent decided if the rack will go in the Tacoma or the Hilux or both. I need to figure that out.

    Finally got this 99% done. Just need to seal it up a little better by the twin sticks.

    Picked up my 3rd from Joe earlier this week after he had a look over it..

    IMG_1095_zps724f31db_b4ba7aee33ed6214abb9ea2d6091c62a3b60b3a9.jpg

    IMG_7037_zps4618229f_019cbfc023842a0da6abc6b3865dda7f3ae6656a.jpg

    I had him check it out due to the fact I let a friend have my TC flange after he destroyed his rear end and after I put the new flange on It didn't feel right to me. So I sent it to the expert. He also threw in a tube of Toyota FIPG for the install.

    I got the fresh 3rd member with the G2 5.29's and Detroit in and sealed up.

    20131008_193856_zps2a1a1de9_54a05fb0f33fa0d32a1bdcfc14d4bb56f199a34e.jpg

    I painted both the rear calipers since I overlooked that when I did the rear disc brakes. Its not the best but it is better than rust.

    20131008_193908_zps4f8bdd2c_a0000cebf9ab1827073ac3fefb2010408c0696d8.jpg

    I have a drivable truck now. Just need to add oil to the rear diff. I wanted to let the FIPG set over night.

    I wanted to post this pic. I installed my rear driveshaft while the rear tires were still ever so slightly off the ground. This made the install a 1000 times easier due to the fact that you could rotate the DS (w/ the TC in Neutral) to get all the DS bolts tightened in an easy to reach position. I dont know why I never did that in the first place

    20131008_214803_zpsa044022d_cb92b95081e13114332fc0fdd2597f97e987f88c.jpg

    Installed my ARP hub studs today. Fairly easy thing to do. Added 2 new outer c-clips on the Birfs while I was at it. I finally replaced a twisted off bolt on the drivers side lockout. Its been bugging me for a while now. I also cleaned up my front shock with a buffing wheel and cleaned/degreased my front brakes.

    shiny shocks, turned out better than I originally intended.
