    Yeah it really good! I ended up spraying it with some flat black rustoleum when I got home just to make it blend a little more.

    I'm from Wisconsin and I'm looking for a set of pre-runner or 4x4 leaf springs from a late model Tacoma (I have a 2013). Looks like a lot of you have your trucks highly modified and lifted, so I'm hoping someone has OEM leaf springs just laying around that they'd like to sell. Plenty of people on the West coast are selling their leafs, but shipping from there is a killer. Please PM me if you have any to sell.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    How come you're moving on? And I'd highly doubt you see anymore than 30k for the truck. You can buy a BRAND NEW truck for $30k.. Yes it has a SC but meh :p GLWS man!

    I switched jobs recently and my job is either a lot of running around town, or long drives. I have always wanted a diesel, so I would like to sell this truck and pick up a used diesel and an around town car.

    As far as the price, I didn't realize it was so high. You never see stock used Tacoma's with 30,000 miles going for 30k. Oh wait.....

    http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail.jsp?tracktype=usedcc&csDlId=&csDgId=&listingId=116325921&listingRecNum=11&criteria=sf1Dir%3DDESC%26mkId%3D20088%26stkTyp%3DU%26mdId%3D22250%26rd%3D150%26crSrtFlds%3DstkTypId-feedSegId-mkId-mdId%26zc%3D60515%26rn%3D0%26PMmt%3D1-1-0%26stkTypId%3D28881%26sf2Dir%3DASC%26sf1Nm%3Dprice%26sf2Nm%3Dmiles%26isDealerGrouping%3Dfalse%26rpp%3D50%26feedSegId%3D28705&aff=national&listType=1

    And you never see used modified Tacoma's going for $35. Oh wait.....

    I just priced it like I am seeing it when I search for used Tacoma prices.

    Thx! I'm usually the camera guy running around taking pics of everyone else so I really have to work to get pics of my own truck. Its all good fun though. This trip gave me a few ideas for projects in the future I'm really excited for.

    Well evokid's bedrack left last night. Here it is all welded up, even added some light tabs and corner gussets for tie-downs, and shot some paint on it.

    Love the tires! SAS... Well I really need to get my life settled in a bit. Fighting for the right to see my daughter is costly on more than one level. I do however want to refine what I do got. SAS will happen one day. But don't hold ur breath for now.

    I will continue to keep all of you in my prayers. I am sorry things are continuing in that direction. :(

    You know it goes without saying, but if you need anything, call me.
