    My dad down at the garage were he works at got one of them locking nuts that has the teflon at the end of the bolt to lock them and we just turned it around and an made threads through the teflon part and a little of the bolt itself was hold the projector in. It holds it i think tighter than the one they sent me thats on the passenger side. the bolt was so thick though he had to take it back to work and cut it down to make it a little thinner to where the bulb would be held on too. when he cut it thinner it didnt mess anything up on the bolt like the threads and all. I'll have to say I was excited to get them on and see how they looked!!!! just have to adjust them now where they r level. keep on the look out though cause im hopin this evening to post a lot of pics that i had taken yesterday.

    Once a month?! I'd say probably the cleanest Tacoma in NC! Yeah my Dad likes that about my canopy too, it definitely comes in handy. I keep the CB antenna off in town, can't fit into parking garages with it on :eek: plus not a whole lot of people have CBs driving around in the city

    im tryin to figure out how to hold my fishin rods in the back of mine but hang them from the top so nothing i put in the back will mess em up. im hopin soon to get my winch put on but will see. theirs a lot of other projects we have goin on but hopin soon. that will add a lot to the stance of the truck too. just wonderin how cold has it gotten out their. why i ask is i like the cold way more than the heat but thats just me? hahaha!!!! how much is ur tint u have? an do u have a tint strip across the front?

    I hear PVC piping works well for guys. Do a search here on the forum, I can GUARANTEE that someone (or a few people) have done that mod. A winch will probably lower your front by 0.25".... maybe. These eibach coils are pretty stiff.

    Eh it's like mid 50s but cloudy/rainy. Apparently we're supposed to have a cold winter so I'm excited for that. I want to try out these snow rated Duratracs :cool:

    ive got them set at the bottom setting which is stick i think. to me it really didnt sit the front down that much IMO. it took me and my buddy to hold it up and then someone under the truck to bolt it on. I got the arb for a STEAL too man only paid 250 bucks. couldnt pass it up. if u dont mind me askin how much r u gettin urs for?
