    damn
    thats what happens when you forget where the wire goes for the aux plug hot all the time mod

    so i redid it the right way


    SANY0119_52b533e30d8d8a95761308e86ba9a5898cbd8658.jpg

    don't worry i didn't leave those wires exposed ,thats where the relay was for the aux plugs and it is now the relay for my lights i have on my bumper. (i have 2 switches for them) one switch is the hi-beam switch with the headlight and the other switch wired parallel to the high beam switch so i can run my high-beams without the lights.

    a more up to date pic of my taco:D

    100_0130_f4d2b8efd66430ba9dce5e03cd53ad52e0347836.jpg

    the other Dakota tire started leaking around the rim the day before , i guess its time for some new tires and a alignment :eek:

    had to rob 2 tires off the 86 (you get a little sneak peek of the freshly painted rims)

    100_0133_2a8ab62bbd452c76895f7dc76a7adb5dad1c9e61.jpg

    (note my awesome car ramps)

    and on with this (when i picked it up from 07NavyTaco i raced home and put it on which was at like 10pm?)

    100_1061-1_cb2d3284afc795e682c3f95455befa240c528085.jpg

    it looked like that for a few days until i picked up some bed liner and some new mounting hardware. i took it up to my dads place (pretty much a fully equipped shop) and took it off and bed lined it, reinstalled the winch with grade 8 bolts (you can never overbuild, a great rule to go by ;)),relocate the winch control box on the firewall beside the piper motor, installed my off road lights and fixed the bent flair lead mount.

    100_1080-1_6848d3ae17fc7f82f2f141e4d404dc078921a09a.jpg

    also while i was at pops shop i redid the front cross member (for the skid) my first one didn't hold up too well. its just a piece of angle iron bolted to the frame, nothing special, but should be documented.
