    Replaced the bulbs behind the heater controls (74). Much better to see the controls at night now.

    Still interested in a lift (idealy 881,new leafs) But may go with a spacer and something cheap out back..

    Changed the idler pulley for the AC out, bearing was on its way out. PN for bearing 6301 belive its the same PN for v6 engines as well. Going to rebuild my TOYOTA pulley $6 bearing and keep it for a spare. The toyota is built different (better).

    No real cool updates may pull the seats out and clean under them and clean the entire enterior real good sometime (Cant you rent a steam cleaner vacumn? Anyone know anything about those)

    No real cool updates-Would like to do a small lift but we'll see.

    Well found out my wierd noise (sounded like an exhaust leak all along) My truck has the infamous exhaust leak/cracked manifold :( Most likely will go with a 01+ 'header' for around $300 for the complete kit via

    Would like to do a cheapo spacer/block/AAL type lift sometime soon (Cant justify 1200$ OME ETC type) Mostly for looks I will go offroad maybe 1 time per 6 months I dont really rockcrawl just mall crawl lol

    Found a spacer on the forum for $80 and found one in the free section for free.

    Would like a free one from all the spacer haters :)

    lies.
    I wish i still had mine. gave em to some kid in Cali a week before you showed up here :frusty: spacers work fine as long as you treat them appropriately. you take it easy on your rig so you should have no problem. no baja'ing the crap outta your truck and you are going to be fine.

    Yeah its mostly for looks I havent wheeled since we went together a few months ago. (Other than exploring fire roads just outside CDA)

    I just cant justify $1k for OME type lift lol

    i used to say the same thing. now that i have OME up front, i can clearly see how it is worth it. i benefit from a better ride with every mile i put on, whether it is on road, or offroad.

    Just got this thing tonight. I live in Tucson. I love Tacoma's this is my third. Last was 1998 from Seattle (a little beat up but a great truck) then had a 2004 extended cab 4wd also a great truck. This one I just got looks a little long in the tooth but I think with a little TLC she'll come out fine. First thing I notice is some trace rust on the undercarriage. Will this be a problem? Also I think the exhaust manifold is leaking. Is this common for this year?
