    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    I have the KDMAX tune on a MT, installed the day after Sleepy Creek. I have to say that what has been said about 1-3 gears is true, but I actually like the way it responds. I'm not a jackrabbit from the start, but I like the response from the pedal down low in those gears and would imagine if pulling a trailer or climbing an offroad obstacle, it would be helpful. 3-6, the engine responds a little quicker than it did before and handle the mild hills around here much better, not dropping gears like I have on some. I do wish the lower power was there like it was 1-3, and wish it had dome more for the upper end. Overall, the sluggish response is much improved. I have to footnote this with I also added heavier tires three days later and it's my third tank of gas, so still trying to see where the mileage falls in at.

    Haven't been here in a while, since i sold the Tacoma.. But I just traded in my STI for this 4runner Trail so I can come play again! I'm so surprised how much more room there is in the 4runner over the Tacos it was a real bummer to see mine go when we found out how tough it was for us with the car seats, problem solved now.

    This was my Taco if ya'll recognize it- guy who bought it loaded it up with a trailer and moved to Alska with it.

    And if anyone was curious, I've been in this for the last year~ Had to get rid of it after my second ankle surgery this year.

    I’m really glad my son wasn’t interested in his new toys. They look better on the truck.

    Does this move the CV axle forward any?

    The LCA is shifted forward just under an inch, so the outer joint of the CV will also be shifted forward a bit.

    Hopefully at Chris’s for 4th of July but I doubt my wife’s schedule will line up with it. For once, I don’t have a trip planned on the horizon.

    His little testing whoops will certainly demonstrate the flex. So you should just bring George and Tony. I can watch Tony for you. It's the only thing I'm legally allowed to care for.

    Well Tony physically won't fit anymore unless I take out the fridge and if I take george anywhere in the truck, my wife would probably kill me.
