    That is a damned good question.
    It's been going on since my dad was a kid down there he said and the lake is a complete swampy dump compared to the photos and such from back in the 60s and 70s and from how he remembers it. It's in the top five most polluted lakes in Maine last I heard, at least it's good at something.
    I built a two-story garage with an apartment last year behind my house and holy effing christ the paperwork and shit I had to go through to tap into my already-existing septic tank that I have for the house took friggin MONTHS. You'd think I was the antichrist. New construction has all the constraints but they don't do squat about the camps down there.

    Just read an article from the summer of last year stating the lake is still a shit hole. Albeit not as big of one as in prior years. But the MDEP has been 'addressing septic issues' so maybe someone intelligent was finally like "wait a minute.." after 70 years of that bs.

    Ya new construction versus renovation is interesting. A buddy’s family had a camp on a pond, they wanted to rebuild, only way was to leave certain wall(s) in place and build everything around it. It’s now a nice good size home with all new stuff except one wall that they just built over and you can’t see.

    I am looking for a set for my boys fj. His are bald and I just need some used tires to last until summer so I can get a lift and do a body mount chop. (Going to 285’s). I can only spend $500 so if you can’t get what your looking for keep me n mind.

    Scott, I've got the X-ATs you are welcome to do a driveway tire swap and try them out if you come out to Bridgton. They've been good. They do measure taller than my friends KO2s of the same size. Mine were like 33.1x11.5 on 285/70r17s.

    thanks for the offer, bit far of a drive for me from Thomaston, But I may at some point take you up on that. I have to make a trek towards NY in a few weeks to pick up my Skidplates, I do want to make sure the fronts clear (I believe I will have to do some trimming at the rear fender well on the driver, and a passenger sides.. its a bit tight, but I have no rubbing at this point with the 265/70/17's... 144009277_10158026746102794_5770995649562971867_n.jpg

    I do have a spacer that will give me about a 1/2" of lift... so that should help... I'll hopefully have that installed before I ride out there...

    Who has the GFC in Bridgton? I am assuming you are a town resident since you were at the dump.

    A buddy just got the G003s in 285, says they measure 33.5X10.75ish, a bit tall and skinny. They almost looked like a 255 but slightly wider. Could be a good size for fitment.

    This is why I am looking at the 295's... a bit wider.. and a bit more stickout. these are my 265/70/17's and they just barely stick out the fender wells. I chose the 0 offset to minimize scrub radius, and minimize tire stickout. ideally i would have gone with a -10 but rim choices were limited.

    Hey all, I recently bought a Tacoma and was wondering if anyone can recommend a shop that will install aftermarket UCA’s, coils/shocks and AALs?

    Also, while I’ve been on this forum for a while I have not been very active so what’s up! I moved to Portland this past fall and am looking forward to exploring more of the state. I know the opportunities are endless especially up North but if anyone has recommendations for trails they would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I always recommend Archie's in Wells; I've heard nothing but good things from people about Julie & Archie. They've been at it for a long time and they know their stuff.

    Good to know, I think suspension is coming up on the list once I get some of this weight on.

    That’s why someone parks their ass on the case/cooler. Preferably the one with the least mechanical abilities.

    Sorry, two cases. haha
    I mean if you have a place to work I feel pretty confident we can knock out at least the fronts in a single day. I know from working on other trucks the passenger side UCA can be a bit tricky on 3rd gens, but nothing too bad
