    IT'S TIME.

    I plan on leaving either late Friday or very early Saturday morning to go to the Toyota Texas Truck Day. So, in what will probably be a futile effort, I'd like to install my lift this Thursday before I go so that I won't be the only stock-ass Tacoma at this shindig. My goal is to get all this installed Thursday and finish up the little things early Friday. The following needs to be installed:

    • 4" Spindles
    • UCA's
    • ICON C/O's in the front and ICON RR's in the rear
    • Dakar Leafs + D29XL if needed
    • Extended brake lines
    • Tires & Wheels
    Honestly, I could use all the help I can get. I have all the tools, jack stands (I bought some new ones) but I definitely need a hydraulic lift. I have food, cold refreshing beverages, a hot tub, and a whole hell of a lot of gratitude to whoever comes and helps. In case anyone is wondering, I'm in Webster.


    Dennis, all you have to do is drink beer since that's your proven brain-juice. :D



    Let me know!












    Oh. In case you needed some motivation, have a cheerleader. Or a few. They'll be here as well:

    Good luck getting that put on. Air tools will be very helpful to make this happen. Get your 14mm, 17mm, and 19mm sockets ready for a workout.
    A tip for the leafs. Do one side at a time and use a jack to lower the axle from the pumpkin. Get the new bushings for the rear hanger of the leafs. A 2x4 and a hammer puts those in real easy with a little antisieze.

    Thanks for the reminder. 10 and 12 are just common all over these trucks. Don't recall using a 24 on my front suspension.

    Thanks for the heads up. I don't have air tools, but I have a several power tools including two impact wrenches. The new bushings, I can get those from the dealership, correct?

    I remember installing the leafs on Tdunc's Tacoma. Seems the hardest part was aligning the rear to get the damn bolt through.

    Sounds good man. Appreciate it!

    You're the man!

    CV and spindle lift don't belong in the same thread.
