    I'm somewhat new to my tacoma as I haven't began to delve into the mods:D but how do you change the alignment of your headlights. They have been jacked up since my uncle tanked a deer and just fixed it himself. Sorry for the thread jack Lauren. Sweet truck though.

    Thanks! If you open the hood and look behind the lights there are two skinny black knobs; one on the lower right close to the fender and the other on the top left. They are hard to turn so you can use a socket on them. One should mostly move it up and down and the other left and right.


    Haha thanks!

    Alright, thank you. I have had this problem for a while and no one has addressed this in any of their builds until yours :)

    Now that's an interesting way to do it instead of pulling the fuel tank down!
    Was this easier you think?

    Thanks everyone for the compliments!

    My dad was in charge of doing that, and I think it was easier. We did end up having to drop the tank slightly still but better than all the way to the ground.

    Jerk. :p God I looked horrible back then lol

    Slight update. About a week ago I ended up getting into a 4 car accident. Traffic stopped suddenly and a guy in a Mustang wasn't paying attention. So he hit a Ford truck, which was pushed into me, and I was pushed into a car. I fared pretty well compared to the other two.

    Mustang:

    Got some damage on my tailgate, bumpers, bed, and cab.

    So it gets to go under the knife here soon for repairs and needs to get the frame checked. It was tempting to put the money towards something else, but I'd feel better getting it fixed. Especially the cab. If they were going to total it (because they said it might be close), I was going to send it to get SAS'd. :D

    I also made a thread for my grille emblem. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-tacomas/296599-blue-prius-grille-emblem-satoshi.html

    Those pics make me want to start on my rear bumper right now. It looks like your bed slid forward and hit the cab... is there any serious/structural damage?

    Frame flex. From the few guys that i have seen rearended on the site here, they all had the same damage to the cab. the frames flex but usually dont bend. that is a good thing.

    I dig the Ivan Stewarts on first gens, :cool: Also, I had my Smittybilt solenoid under the hood and it wasn't used once, I went through 1 rainstorm and everything corroded and I had to contact Amazon to get a replacement. When I got the replacement I instantly took it all apart and siliconed the hell out of it, I'm pretty sure it was submersible after that. Just food for thought I guess, love the truck!

    Yeah like Ben said, it didn't shift, it flexed. I'll have to post some after pics because it's gorgeous now! Next thing I need to do is plate the frame.

    I've only used mine a few times and it seems to be ok still. But I'll check it out! Thanks!
