    Sorry this is all new to me with modding a truck. Last truck I owned was back in 88 and it was left stock and I figure it's better to ask before I spend money and make a mistake.

    After looking at some other options I can go with these tires and save due to a company discount. With the savings can do the Bilstein shocks. I wanted my truck level but after the explanation I understand. Thanks for the advice/tips. https://www.amazon.com/Bilstein-Mon...bilstein+5100+toyota+ta,automotive,145&sr=1-6

    Thanks. Makes me at ease before pulling the trigger.

    If I remember correctly somewhere I read that the front shocks will require a coil compressor? I can do the job but why did I wait til winter to pull my head out of my a$$. Damn garage has no room with bike, 4 wheeler, riding mower. :annoyed:

    It will. I have a nice one I picked up a while back. $100 from Amazon. Let me know if you want details. I might even be able to help you out with that if you come out this way one day

    Home brewed Tom foolery. A couple pieces were made, but most was bought. Now I’m broke.
    Any big valentines days plans? I’m curious why no one brings me flowers or takes me out for dinner. I suppose I’m not classy enough.

    I don't do valentines day, its fake to me. I told the wife that a long time ago and she is okay with that. I wake up earlier than her, so I make her a hand made card (my artwork is horrible but that's part of the charm) and that seems to do the trick.

    Here is the inside of this year, the things to the left are supposed to be our dogs. I did this quickly, but I could take all day and it wouldn't be better. Front was "Hey Dear"

    maybe, so far no-one has tried to escape justifying me shooting them... I have however sprayed, and been sprayed so much with that I can no longer smell a bunch of the more delicate scents.. MK9 from 4 feet away with FOX, and Cell Buster... good times...

    that sounds romantic!

    tacos are great, she’s a lucky lady!

    That’s my sentiment... I often have to compare myself to our pets. Yes they are all dicks. None of them make food.

    I said I’d make some turkey burgers stuffed with goat cheese. Simple and tasty.

    I’ve noticed that I’ve gotten to a point where I have to weigh the family/kids/happy wife factor and time with certain people is probably never going to out-weigh that. I think I miss time spent with these friends until I’m with them again and reminded of the less-than-stellar experience they provide. Part of “growing up” maybe (I still think of myself as a 20 year old!!).

    Pull the other stuff out of the garage, throw a tarp over it, do the work on the truck and put it all back in! I tell me wife I’m cleaning the garage!

    I wish I had a garage... looking for another house with a garage... but buying market my area is not.. not much available in my price range with what I would consider an acceptable garage... (want to put in a 2 post lift, most require 12ft ceilings. and a 5" slab, or pull out the jack hammer and lay a 12" footing..)
