    I've been running Amsoil red for years now, of course all opinion. But its the best I have found. Also works amazingly to keep delrin and poly noise free.

    Everything.
    The 05-06 had the frame caving in issue from off road use.

    The 96-04 had less of a frame issue, but more of a "frame perch plate ear cracking" issue

    Either way, we see ZERO issues after replacing them with the new fabricated poly bushing mount. Everything is tight, no rebound effect from flexing and therefore no cracking or "slide hammer effect" of a 450lb motor beating on the frame.

    The name "Solid Offroad" is a play on words aka, your drivetrain mount points are now "solid" to put down the skinny pedal :thumbsup:

    The only time you would want an actual full solid steel or aluminum drivetrain mount would be in a full tube chassis, fully caged race vehicle. For what we do, a tough poly bushing is perfect.

    And I am taking orders all the time, send me a PM and we'll get you going.

    Also have an Instagram business page that I check all day - @solid_offroad

    Lots of pics and info on the Instagram page!

    good analogy for Tacomas "before JD" steering... more slippery than someone bathing in lube...

    After JD Steering kit, so easy to drive you can...

    It's a moly-fortified NLGI #2 grease, which is whatcha want. It's the one I've got in my grease gun right now cause you can get it a Homie D or Wally World but subscribe to the "more often is better than more expensive" method of grease running and gunning so am not particular.

    I had to smog this thing yesterday. Drove down to JD fab to pick some stuff up and to help clear the emission monitors since this thing has had its battery disconnected for so long. I drove it again to work this morning. AAE26D3B-4E11-4AB3-A791-1C713654A29C.jpg Parked it next to my coworkers truck.

    Anybody ever mess with an under hood fuse box relocation? I'm looking at the possibility of moving everything I can to the back seat area. Battery, fuse box, Switch pros etc. Plan is, when I cage it to run forward with the caging and tin in my own inner fenders. The fuse box relocate is a pretty common deal in the car world to tuck an engine bay. But would like to see if anybody has ever gone this route. Figured the thread with all of the crazy people was a good starting point.

    I'm trying to diagnose a steering issue. This morning while making two sharpish turns at around 10 mph it didn't want to return to center. It felt like I broke a tie rod or something. Like the tires were fighting each other... I thought I was going to look under the truck and see something obvious. PS fluid level was good, no play in anything, nothing out of the ordinary. I cranked it back up, racked it left and right, drove and swerved and made similar turns and couldn't repeat the problem...

    I've had a clunk in the front. Almost like a bottom out clunk and mostly sounds like the passenger front, but I've had it for over a year on multiple set ups. Almost like a loose wheel or the cab hitting the frame maybe- very hollow sounding. It's nothing suspension related since I've changed everything under there at least twice by now. I've recently started thinking it was steering related, but fluid was good and no play in anything so I let it be. I don't know what's normal, but I'm able the wiggle that shaft to the steering column at the u joint quite a bit...I don't want to replace the rack if it's a pump or rag joint or the shaft...any ideas?

    Intermediate shaft, the piece that connects the steering rack to the rest of the steering shaft. The U joint can bind in turns. A quick "fix"/diagnosis is to soak it in PB blaster or WD 40 and that'll free it up, but you should just replace it. About $160 for OEM.
