    You have to admit though, it's been very respectful and low key. I applaud all for that. And it's not really political when you think about it. Guys gotta work. Guys are gonna bitch about work. We all gotta work to pay for the taco toys. Not arguing, just sayin'...

    You're the boss. Damn it. That sounds like work again.


    Break break


    Tonight I attack the extended brake lines. Diff and t case oil changes and reinstall skids. If time permits, I'll install proper sized bolts in the rear shocks lower eye. Damn, that sounds like a lot of work for lil ol me. Good thing the wifey will help on occasion. At least with bleeding the brakes.

    This kind of thing is true for many industries. For the last three summers, there have been recalls. Big ones. Summer is also our busiest time and warranty doesn't pay either. Or the time required for mandatory classes that are only offered…during the summer.

    So back to Tacomas. ;)

    I need my truck aligned. I went to Goodyear as was suggested here...my truck is too wide for their rack.:cool:

    Any other places?

    I have to because oil fires suck and I'd rather be alive getting a proper seal on my face mask than be dead.

    I'm not a rock warrior, but usually go slow. That doesn't mean setting the cruise control at 65, on a dirt road in DV, with pizza cutters and a house on the back isn't fun. Others were going much faster.

    Basically, go slow when you should, and fast when you can. Or build a KOH truck and go fucking nuts erryday.
