    My 33's are murdering pumps, I'm sure when I move to 35's it will be the same if not worse.

    My rack has play in it, might be contributing to it. I have a replacement rack on hand, I just need to get around to putting it in. Might just pay a shop to deal with that one; I could do it but it's not going to be pleasant and if I break a high pressure line I know I'm up the creek without a paddle.

    I know with 37"s I will be killing racks all the time so I plan on either building a slider for mine or jumping up to a big boy TT rack but that's big $$$$

    You're talking like a Howe rack or something right?

    What's the deal with putting pressure to that rack? Do they make pumps that can be made to fit onto any engine?

    I actually just replaced my rack and pump last night.
    ;).



    But yeah, I was looking into racks and pumps but didn't have money to throw down on a custom setup.

    How bad was the rack? I've replaced the pump before, the rack looks like a PITA to get in there and disconnect the lines.

    Any specific tools or techniques that would make it easier?

    I spent the last two weeks on the road enjoying the truck, but the two weeks prior to that busting my knuckles on it. I don't feel like working on it, but I need to get in there and fix it.

    Be careful with all the high pressure lines obviously, the skids had to come off, and i know the steering shaft was a tight fit. i actually didnt do mine, my buddy did but he was texting me while working on it saying it was a pain. He's a chrysler tech so it was his first Tacoma rack to replace


    How are you liking the defined kit?

    I like it a lot, I just need to add the extra leaves to get some ride height back. It handled great though. I had a lot of weight though so I could see how the guys who run around with empty beds would say it is stiff.

    The lightest I had the bed was 15 gallons of fuel / water (120 pounds), plus the plate bumper and full size spare at the very end of the truck. Handled very well at that weight.

    Heaviest I had it was all that, plus another 300-400 pounds in roof top tent, ice chest, rock climbing gear, etc. Had some bro lean going on but still handled well.

    It carries weight pretty well, doesn't sag as much as stock would.
