    Hey All

    My name is Dave. I'm nearly 50 yrs old, but my brain tells me I'm still 25.
    I have a 2006 PreRunner Sport (yeah... I know) 6 cylinder. So far I've put on a Daystar 3 inch lift (spacers) and BFG AT KO's. Sorry I don't remeber the exact size, but they are bigger than stock but not 32's. I tried 32's at Discount Tire but with the stock rims the tires were rubbing on the A frame of the suspension. So i went one size down.

    When I am not at my day job driving the big rigs for FedEx Freight I am President of the Arizona Chapter of the North American Field Herpetology Association. We are snake and lizard people. The easiest way to explain what we do is "catch and release" the reptiles, take measurements, and keep the info on our online database so that academeics, governement entities, and other scientific folks can use our data.

    Anyway.... my first discovery of this site was when I was searching for a way to fix that the stupid temperature gauge/compass . I found the solution in these forums. $10 soldering iron and $4 torx driver vs. $150 for the new board. Thanks a bunch!!!

    I will contimnue to scour this forum whenever I need info or a question answered about my truck.

    Dave

    I'm saving up to put a "locker" in my differential to give me more umph on the upslopes since I don't have 4WD.

    Hi Dave... get a 4WD ASAP, and really get out into the desert and seek out the vipers! I have had a few close calls here in San Diego County and down in Baja!

    Hey All

    Thanks for the welcome into your community.

    As far as needing a 4wd for getting to the vipers, I've found that I can get to 95% of the places I need to go with just the 2wd ltd slip diff. The other 5 % I just call a buddy and have him take me! But I am considering getting a locking rear diff to add a little help to the 95% and maybe bump it up to 98%.

    But then Im not a rock crawler or "drive down a trail on the side of a cliff while scraping my mirror on the rock wall on the other side" kind of a guy.
