    That's one of the nice things about Toyotas. They are not that comfortable, they don't have the fancy tech, and they get terrible fuel efficiency. But hot damn you can treat them like garbage and generally they are going to be running (if they don't rust) at 250k miles. My landcruiser engine (4.6 V8) is still used in a bunch of lexus's (not sure if it's still the base Tundra engine or not). I takes like 7.5 L of oil, and the thing could care less if you've only got 2L oil in the crankcase. I know everyone here has moved onto fancy domestic offerings, but there's something to be said for simplicity....

    ASAP, Did the rear a few weeks ago with icon rxt option 2 and 5160s. Wanted to do the fronts 2 weeks ago and found a bad lower ball joint witch was a good excuse because my buddy that was gonna help had to cancel for family. Dad's in hospice.
    Where are you located? If we're pretty local I'm happy to help if you need or need any tools. What are you going with for a lift?

    I'd invest in one of those wire cups you can put on an angle grinder to help with some larger areas of the frame.

    Yeah, I have an assortment of wheels and cups here, and a crappy little media blaster to get into corners and seams. I really only want to do this once...

    Yeah, exactly, what's all this about selling guns? What good is money without the guns?

    I've owned both Toyota's and Fords. There is no comparison of the quality difference between the 2

    Yup I always try to stock up in the fall. Plus I refuse to go to a pool store unless other options aren't available..giggle.

    That's the usual..I have a nice size spare room. But..wife is having surgery and has to live on one floor for a while. Not really an option to move gym upstairs, b/c low ceilings and eaves. FML
