    It has a 4-link system in the back, extra fuel tank it´s 35 gallons and a fulepump so you can fill the orgina tank while driving, it has a 4:88 and a front air lock, it has ranco 9000 shocs in the back and 3" light racing struts in the front, Artick trucks tires 38"x15,5" we had to change the brake system and use brake pumps from landcruser 80 and the brakedisk is built by artick trucks in Iceland ,we did this so we could use 15"x14" wheels for better flote on the snow when you let the air out, It has a lift kit about 2" only on the boddy and then the flairs and running bords,2x air pumps one for the tires and one fore the locker, KN filter, fluricent lights under the car and some lights in the front. inside is the GPS, VHF, CB, and NMT phone and I can´t remember anything else
    Hi all,

    I was curious if anyone has tried using Brown's Gas injection
    to boost the fuel efficiency of a Toyota Tacoma. This is
    also called HHO and is basically Hydrogen (H2) gas and
    Oxygen (O2) obtained via electrolysis of water. The truck's
    battery is used as the source of electricity for hydrolysis.
    does it realy work ??

    Check my sig
    well, the power used to convert h2o into HHO (break the covelant bonds) is going to be the same as the energy gained from the recombining of these two elements (minus the energy lost to heat) so my guess is no.

    EDIT TO ADD LINK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxyhydrogen look at the last paragraph... "Fringe science and fraud"

    On the ground of a "no such thing as a free lunch" theory I'd say it's bogus.

    The energy for electrolysis comes from the battery; the battery is charged by the alternator which is powered by the engine which is sucking more gas than ever before 'cause the big-ass alternator needed for this is.

    Sorry... this ain't the perpetual motion solution. not yet

    Tacosupreme had it on his truck. He was charging a second battery from the power grid and using it to run the HHO. Boosted his mileage supposedly.

    I don't think it works normally.
