    I have been building this truck for the last year and I feel I am almost there (YEAH RIGHT!). Here are a few pics of the original and newest add-ons I have complete, as well as some good times had by all.

    A little mountain climbing is good for the figure!







    Taking it a little too far........:cool:





    The new bumper, with the new plate (lost the original in the mud..oops)

    My favorite spot up the road from my house.


    Splash guard/ skid plate for the rear winch.

    Actually...........The rear bumper is a (cough) Road Armour (cough) haha ARB didnt make a rear winch mount bumper that i could find. I think this one is badass enough though. And having a rear winch is such a useful tool.

    Ya I meant as in ARB front bumpers in general haha that rear one you have is sweet too! Ya a rear winch is really useful for sure. If I get one it'll probably go in the rear too :cool:

    Got my truck back from Toyota today.............drove about a block and turned around. Absolutly no change in the transmission. How can they tell me its OK, clear the codes and give me the keys back?

    I was told they took it for a test drive around the parking lot. HA! The first 3 lines is what I told them was wrong.......How can you get 3rd gear to change at 5000 rpm in a dealership parking lot without doing at least 80kph? Checked connectors hey!? Oh and one was shorted...Funny I found no shorted connector or wire around the transmission when I did my own prior inspection. Cleared codes hey!? Didnt check into them just cleared them. Hmmm sounds like I want to be a Toyota technician. I will be checking into these codes and they will be checking into my transmission.
    CANT BULLSHIT A BULLSHITTER!!!!!!! they wont get a cent until the problem is solved.
