    I know what you mean. luckily my buddy Matt stays off the forums (@STiLL WILL --> https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/still-wills-matt-2013-super-charged-white-dcsb-t-x-pro.266394/). He's who got me into the tacoma and it would've been a real slippery slope if I followed him down the engine mod path instead of this overweight rock crawler path.

    the only thing you'd really have to do is disconnect the power wire from the battery in the engine bay and maybe the remote / trigger wire from behind the head unit. if anything, I'd say disconnect the power from the engine bay and then remove the amps + subs in the rear. I'd keep the power wire in place in case you want to leave the inverter or add a power block in the rear in the future.

    I'd have to see where the wires are running too...there are two boxes I think one is an amp and the other a distribution block so I'll have to trace wires back

    Anyone have a pair of crimpers that will work for battery cables around the Concord area? I don't need them yet, just thought I'd see if there are any floating around? Just need to make 8 crimps on some cables.

    What gauge wire? I've got these you can use anytime, in Walnut Creek. Definitely better for 16-22 gauge more than anything else though.

    Whoops, I need them for battery lugs I think the cable is 2 AWG. I have some for the smaller wire, but thank you! Once this shit show is over you'll have to come over for a BBQ, you're right down the road.

    I can't say no to that :cheers:

    For thicker gauge wire, I usually just punch it. Two hits on one side, and one centered hit on the other side. So far so good with all my thicker gauge wire

    I have lug crimpers if that’s what you are looking for. Good for 0-10 gauge wire.

    after shredding a belt that got wedged up in the crank pulley i was nervous as hell to start my truck. saw a post in the supercharger thread about a guy that cut ribs off the sc belt and the truck ate it.

    first the pulley install tool thread stripped so i had to fix the tool to get the pulley on.
    then my dumb ass didn't check the sc belt which led to an angry, frustrating fix.
    since bullshit comes in threes i was thinking i am in for one more.

    but the green and red are playing nicely so far. holy f-ing boost :yay:

    The ribs are for her pleasure. Well to keep the belts on. You don't want to cut them. When you do, the belt slips at that spot and then slams into the next rib. Usually, it breaks that rib off if not on this revolution, the next will. The bigger the gap, the faster the belt comes apart. It never ends well and it almost never lets you get to someplace you have half a chance of getting a new one.

    i usually just grab the biggest pair of vice grips I have and slowly crimp each side of the terminal/lug, turn the adjustment knob to crimp it smaller, release and repeat until its super tight. Its not as quick and nice as a proper crimper but very doable and comes out solid each time.
