    Then i cut the stock muffler off and welded in a piece of pipe, i hate stock sounding trucks the make me sick. Heres the video

    Bought a ultra gauge with the group buy on here and realy like that its paid for itself many times with seeing what the check engine light is coming on for.

    Installed the extened rear brake line last night in about a hour and a half with bleeding...in the dark....in the rain...at night... lol not a fun experence but i wanted to get it done before next weekend when i install the whole lift. after retopping of the fluid in the brake booster. the brake light stayed on but i drove about a mile and the light went off so thats good. the brake pedal feels a lil stiffer aand more responsive with the new ss line. i like..

    Yea it's considered straight pipe but I still got my cats though. All I did was cut the muffler off and weld in a peice of pipe. Pretty simple. One thing u could do witch I did, is buy a flow master super 10 off road muffler. It's a small single chamber muffler that sounds awsome. When I get headers and high flow cats itl be way to loud for straight pipes so I'm gana put one of those mufflers on.

    Thats how it always goes down! I installed my full OME outside on a stone driveway...the day before this past Superbowl. The kicker was the temp never got above 11f:mad: Its was cold as a polar bears ass. And the sun seem to set way early that day. Anyway

    Nice build so far! Keep the pictures coming.

    What I did was take the corner marker light out and switch the wires around very simple this way but makes u have hyper blinking so I bought some bigger bulbs and that solved the problem and also got some clear bulbs for the new fog lights. The hardest part was getting the wire shroud and tape off of the wires to switch them

    Well I got it aligned today and it wasn't outa spec that much at all toe and camber were a little high but not bad and it only costed $100. And the tech was cool and let me watch him do it. He was also impressed with my exhaust :)

    Yeah I have seen that sticker many places haha . yesterday at napa the parts store I was asking for some more bolts for my skidplate and I didn't have them on hand i forgot them at home so I was trying to tell the guy how small they were and he said it can't be a skidplate if the bolts are that small, but no surprise it's a toyota" :(

    But yeah, I am going to do my muffler as soon as my trucks payed off
