    Intake, exhaust, lift. Typical stuff.
    There's a mud pit somewhere that I see a lot on the local Tacoma Facebook group but I wouldn't call that a trail. Closest trail that I know of is Shoecreek, west of Charlottesville. Its stock truck friendly but I think the land owners have closed most of that off. Everything else I know of needs 4WD and 6 hours of driving.

    Thanks again for the OV tune. My truck drives so amazing, holding gears longer, mpg went up and staying there, shifts so smooth and the overall driving experience went from great to simply amazing. Sold my Sprint Booster! Guys I swear this is a must have tune, drives old school in a great way, no more issues for me, don't get me wrong my Tacoma drove great, performed well but until you go OV tune you don't know what your missing. My truck in cruise control is even better, no more hunting for gears as i thought mine wasn't too bad. Best bang for you buck right here, I put this as my top mod!!! Get er done!!!!!!!

    Hey guys I removed the old hydronic baseboard heating in the house and have quite a bit of copper pipe, where can I take that to recycle? I know can get paid for it, but don’t know where haha I’m in Norfolk.

    Check Meeks Disposal in Portsmouth. Copper is not bringing what it did years ago.

    Thanks. This would be my first time so I don't really know what to expect, quick internet search was showing ~$2.50 a lb idk
    Just recalled I purchased a couple scrap pieces of stainless from Old Dominion Metals in Hampton a few months back, I'll call them too thanks!

    Anyone here have any experience with a 5.7 Hemi? I just took ownership of a 2009 300C and my mod bug is itching. So far I can’t find a 300 forum even close to as useful as this one.

    Thought you guys might be interested, I haven’t been yet but would be cool to setup an outing. Looks like admission is $10 for the day on a privately owned farm.

    $20 for the vehicle and another $10 per person, even the driver. So you're looking at $30. I've been watching them on Facebook, looks ok, plenty of room for improvement. I would love somewhere more local to get offroad.

    Looking for a single second gen OEM CV axle. I only care about the outer joint so if the inner joint is messed up/boot torn, I don't care. I need it for some long travel axle cores so it must be OEM. Lemme know what you've got.

    Where is it? I looked through every page on the web link, and they didn't provide an address, phone number, or point of contact.

    Random question, have any of you had corrosion issues locally with your Fox/King/ADS bodies?

    Where do y’all recommend for getting your shocks rebuilt/serviced? Before my kiddos were born I bought a set of used rear Kings that need to be rebuilt lol.

    Mail them off to accutune or downsouthmotorsports. Both fine folks, I’d go with whoever has the quicker turnaround. They’re the pros when it comes to that
