    No Truck..well, maybe
    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now
    One of our guys , Rick (Re8elmonk) had some hellacious noises coming from his Taco so he took my advice & went to my friends shop in La Mesa for some repairs & this is one problem they found & I know alot of us here have their own "favorite mechanic" & this one is mine , EXPRESS AUTO SERVICE in La Mesa, I've known this guy since 3rd grade & you cannot find a more knowledgeable, fair & most importantly.... Honest Mechanic any where else in town. I didn't start this thread to pimp his shop, I don't need to, this guy's business is about 80% -85% referral based. & he's also an offroader too, so if anyone has any mech. issues with their truck & don't know where to go or who to trust then I would encourage you to take it to Dave's shop (Express auto service) for a diagnostic & estimate , good people, great service & I endorse them 110%. Plus if it isn;t to his satisfaction your truck doesn't leave the shop... simple as that, just ask Rick......:D:cool:

    P.S. I think he gave Rick a $100 breaK on the bill also (TW discount perhaps? )

    Good to know there are still honest places out there. Thanks Doug. Glad Rick got that fixed, it sounded terrible.

    I'm about the change my front bearings tomorrow (friday).

    I have been hearing some groaning noises and feeling a vibration in the floor and pedals. Also when I put the truck on jack stands the wheels dont turn very easily.

    I will post pics with what I find.
