    Thanks for the info. Will probably put the tent on the truck and see how it goes. You planning any trips that way? I'll keep you informed as to what we're doing and maybe you guys would want to come with?

    interesting. I'll have to measure the nut on the next CV job. Wonder if it is a double cab difference.

Allpro skids, Rigid duallys.
    This was exactly what I needed to hear/read.
    A group of us from PNW are planning Rubicon this year.
    My Tacoma is an 03 DCSB with e-locker and ARB air locker up front (purchased that way from prior owner) and pizza cutter KM2's. I "think" all I need is a BR expedition rack and an ARB fridge. I have added skids, spare tire, and Hi Lift.

    I think I should be fine but I can always appreciate words of advice from others that have done it.

    My tacoma, tundra, and the wife's 4th gen runner are all 35mm.
    There was a long standing rumor on TW that it was a 36mm axle nut...because a 6 point 36mm socket will still work. But every truck I've worked on the 35mm fits perfect.

    agree 35mm is the correct one, but the 36 mm will work to remove, ive never personally tightened with the 36mm

    yah small slip up lol....

    its all good, I worked out they are sending me the right ones now, working on a price for me to keep the rears at a discount, seeing as they would need to pay 100ish in shipping just to get it back now lol

    Awesome. Guess it worked out ok. Nice to have some spare rears. I have never broken a rear shaft but was lucky when I was changing diff fluid one time. Found that I had twisted splines on both rears. Was glad I caught it before it broke. Replaced them and now have a set of spares too.

    I highly doubt you'll ever break a chromo in the rear. Christo was running factory axles in his "shortbus" cruiser on 42's and didn't break rears. He broke lots of birfs and the occasional front inner axle but I never heard of a rear braking.

    I mentioned this in the "what did you do today" thread, but my MTRs have been seeing a ton of miles. I've put almost 30K miles on them in the year I've had them. Lots of those miles have been offroad. They still have about 50-60% tread left but I can't be buying new tires every year.


    So last night I painted my FZJ80 wheels (been meaning to for a while) and put the 315's back on the Tacoma so the MTRs can save their tread for wheeling. I need them to last through one more wheeling season.


    Went graphite colored with the wheels. 4 coats of VHT paint and 3 coats of gloss. I really like how they came out. I'm stoked how they look on the cruiser, not bad on the Tacoma either.

    Adam, did you end up needing the extension for the rack and pinion steering or the drop bracket for the rad when you installed the 1" body lift? I am ordering one soon. Thanks!

    I didn't need anything for the radiator but I did use the spacer for the steering shaft.
