    Today took it to the shop... since my driveshaft got some damage from rocks during last trail, I'm getting a reinforced one.

    Well, during my last trip to San Antonio, I bought these G2 1.25" wheel spacers...

    I installed them today, just missing the after picture:

    Long story, short...

    The manager of a dealership owned a mgm tacoma and he equipped it with everything he could (including the ARB)...

    He was selling it, qnd the guy that was interested didn't want a heavy bumper. He was only going to use it for hauling his bikes... I, luckily, was that day at the dealership and heard the whole story...

    So we ended up trading my original bumper plus some money... And they did the install...

    So, for me, it was a great deal!!

    ARB are expensive if you buy them new, but I've seen a few for sell, it's just a matter of time...

    Hola Chepo, yo también soy de México D.F, y me gusto mucho tu Tacoma y como le has sacado provecho, yo tengo una Tacoma que también es 2011, nada más que la mia es blanca. La mia solo tiene 4000 kms ya que casi no la uso por que me da miedo golpearla.

    Te felicito tienes muy buen gusto y manejas muy bien, ojala estemos en contacto y me puedes guiar para equipar la mia.

    Que tal! como estas?? pues que gusto!!!

    Muchas gracias por tus comentarios! La verdad es que si sales a hacer offroad, los golpes ya son algo de cuestión de tiempo!

    El equipo que le quieras meter, dependerá mucho del uso que le vayas a dar. Aquí en TW encontraras mucha info y como siempre, es mejor aprender de los errores ajenos, así que echate un clavado y a leer mucho!!!!

    Estamos a la orden!
