    I am proud to say I am the owner of a big 95' Tacoma... I'll add pics of it as soon as I can... I actually traded a bigger Chevy 1/2 ton for it... I needed something I could rely on more than the other truck... I noticed a few things about the truck that I had questions about, but even the previous owner really couldnt answer them so I figured that I would come to ya'll to get some good help.

    Since I got it, the front axles have been bad... I believe its because he installed a 6" Fabtech lift on it and didnt do the differential drop on it (read that in your forums)... I will be doing that soon to correct that problem.. I would have to say my biggest problem is in the manual gear box... I have a lot of play when in gear... Typically its a linkage problem, but I didnt seem to see any linkage, so it wasnt as easy for me to fix as I thought it would be. Has anyone experienced this problem and fixed it before? If so, how? I have no problem getting in gear... even with 37x12.50's on it I can still keep up with traffic and not drive the truck hard... I shift at 3 grand most of the time and have no issues keeping up... I just think I have far too much gear play and it makes me feel a little uncomfortable..

    Also, with the new wheels and tires I got I had a problem with clearance... Not with fenders or anything, but with the upper A arm.. I KNOW they are big tires... the tires on my full size Chevy were only an inch taller, and it was WAY bigger than my Tacoma... What would be the cheapest/easiest way to fix this problem? Buying new rims and tires is out of the question... I was thinking spacers, but with spacers my hubs will sit a little far in and will be pretty difficult to lock in when it comes time to have fun... is there a way to get a hub that is longer so they stick out enough to reach? I had 16.5x10"s on it and they were wrapped in 35x12.50" BFG AT KO's... but I wanted a good mud terrain so went up a size in rims... I know there is a way to make it all work, but Im so flustered with it right now that I cant think straight... I just need some help!!
