    Certainly torn about it as I really love what the Taco has become and ya e a heap of faith in its abilities. But I’m trying to suss out the long term end result and I’m learning now that my travels won’t likely include my wife which means I simply don’t need that much machine.

    I’ve been a long time fan of John Rooth and his adventures all over Australia on ether a motorcycle or a LandCruiser and immediately fell in love with his bobbed HJ45 Troopy - Milo - that he’s been touring in for years and even more so in his new - Milo 2 - HJ45 Ute that he’s building. I think that allot of his plans for the ute would suit me as well but a left hand drive ute is crazy expensive here in the States. Casually shopping in South Africa and Australia at the moment to sort out the prices for excellent examples so I can start running the numbers to guesstimate where I’d have to be to take on that project.

    I’m still really pining for a Citroën DS as well because my mother had one when I was a kid and I fell in love with that car for so many reasons.

    Sometimes being a motorhead really sucks.

    Well you know what I would want if you needed to part out. But I would hate to see you sell, but sometimes you need to sell to get exactly what you want.

    @HIYota has dibs on heaps of those parts if it goes that way. But I'll keep you in mind.

    For the record, this monster IS still for sale.

    Won’t separate them because as it sits it’s the most upgraded long bed Tacoma FlipPac on the market and needs to stay that way for the next owner to enjoy.

    Add some fish cake and cut up green onions and you got a nice dish. You can even get fancy and add roast pork instead of spam, but that’s not really budget as far as ramen goes lol.

    What is your biggest complaint with 4.56 and 35s?

    None really. Does everything I need. Kinda wish I had bought a second set of tires and some lighter wheels for daily driving stuff.

    Nice. I opted for 4.88, I have the same tire and size as yours. I was between .56 or .88 and mathematically the difference was little. I want more get up and go power.

    If you end up towing allot it may help a bit more but right now I effectively live on a pool table as Illinois if fairly flat. I’ll be going back and taking a serious look at my armor setup as well as a few other things keeping weight a high priority. Having full steel armor and towin a 4,400lb trailer makes things interesting in the mountains.

    You inspired me with you RAM mount setup for your tablet. Order gets in tomorrow. I also picked up some pieces for a custom mount since my tab has a bulky otterbox on it.

    Glad to hear it, the nice part is that when I’m on interstate she can watch movies or fiddle around on the internet by just rotating the mount towards her.

    Don't often have a copilot (yet...) but having the capability to have them help find a trail or whatever seemed like an added benefit. Should be g2g for this weekend's trek in the woods.
