    I'm not really any help. I come from the land of 4runner and coil springs.

    Call Alcan out of Grand Junction. Weigh the rear of your Tacoma Loaded 1st though, they will use that to build what you want.

    I would suggest leaving it alone until you feel you can afford a full leaf pack replacement. OME Dakar and Alcan are both great options. AAL is just a band-aid.

    Good to hear. There is a sweet skull one in Home Depot by the handles and knobs section. Paint it brass and you're set.

    Installed the cooler and fan. Went to add fluid to the trans and man was I not impressed with how it looked. Definitely not 43k looking fluid. More like 100k fluid. Drain and fill. Or flush. That’s the big question.

    Morning Rebecca doesn’t surprise me you’re up. Hope all is well. :thumbsup: got to go though. I need to change the lights on my cluster gauge and bolt the parking brake handle back on the truck. Have a good one!

    Never enough
    Im thinking about going down to the Telluride/Ouray area for a few days between jobs here in about a week and a half. I have never been to the area before and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of where to camp? I am not looking for anyone to share their secret spot, just looking for general areas where there is nice dispersed camping available. I will be arriving during the week (probably a wednesday or thursday) and leaving during the weekend. Havent decided yet whether I want to take my teardrop and make a base camp or just take the truck to keep things more mobile and camp a different place each night. The only thing set in stone while I am down there is I want to hit black bear. Thanks in advance everyone!
