    Long time reader, first time writer.

    Aside from what I have listed as Mods; I have also removed the mud flaps, secured the sliding window, cable locked the spare, and hose clamped the tailgate open hinge, w/JB Weld in the worm drive of the clamp (Had a S-10 for thirteen years before this truck and the only time the tailgate came off was when it was stolen). And thanks for the 08 seatbelt chime code (first mod). Speakers & deck are in the mail.

    I am Okay w/the rear leaf springs for now. I figure I have some time to deside if I want to fight for the TSB. I have had 650 pounds in the bed and the rear of the truck was difinitily birddoggin but the drive was good. My S-10 came stock w/Bilstiens and strong leaf springs. Every time I hit a bump the back end jumped off the ground and it felt like all the fasteners on the truck became just a little looser.

    If I could change anything I would put a GM style tilt-streering colum in and I can't wait to replace the f-ing tires.

    I agree, why would toyota use such poor tires off the lot??? I felt as if I was forced to upgrade just becuse I knew they were not meant for offroad, ie.. All Terrain. Well those stock tires are great on wifes SUV, and I made the diff back for the AT Revos I purchased. But damn, Toyota should At LEAST offer BFG A/T's for at least the Sport and Offroad Pkge's...
