    Any locals here have a source on fender flares for a 2017 Tacoma Access Cab? My fenders are taking a beating from rocks and other crap. Figured I'd at least ask.

    My Tacoma hasn't looked too happy lately so I figure to make it smile again I would need to replace those stock leaf springs/AAL I have (didn't hold up carrying 400lbs work supplies) So I decided to purchase some new Dakar's EL096R (with bushings) and ARB OME 7.5" U-Bolts ...
    @jeff b tks for the flip kit, getting them ready to paint red …
    And to @Slashaar thank you for picking them up for me at the meet which I couldn't go to …
    Maybe in a couple weekends I'll be able to have time to weld up the Chaos LCA Cam Tab Gussets (Left side tabs bent backwards) and replace the old with the new leaf springs with the flip...
    Everyone have a Great Labor day!

    My tabs are wasted too, that's a nice list you have to do.

    How bad are yours, will you able to pound the tabs back and run a weld behind them?
    Couple of months ago I purchased the Chaos LCA Cam Tab Gussets (Mine are spilt) I've welded all the tabs in the gusset but with all the home to-do list and yard work I haven't had time to finish welding them on.
    So maybe when everything comes in I'll get a chance to take a weekend off and do all of it ...

    Mine are pretty flat. The truck goes to my fab guy ina few weeks to get strapped and rear shock relocation. I'm wondering if he can add some gussets without dropping the LCA?

    You may have to drop the lca down from the frame, the LCA bushings wont like all that welding heat …
    Not sure how much a pain it is to do, But with all the heat it may destroy those LCA bushings …

    Yea they'll need to be out for sure. I'll probably wait till the rear suspension is finished and go from there.

    I recently got asked about that Toyota Outfitter place in Blue Springs or wherever it is. I know nothing about them, do they support any of the local groups or off-road communities or just a business?

    Katie is a big advocate for them. Seem to be pretty nice people to work with according to the few people I know who've gone to them.
