    So when people finally part ways with their built Tacoma’s so you generally part out or sell as is? I think it may be time for me with this Tacoma at least. This thing hasn’t stopped vibrating like a nut job since being rear-ended despite attempting to replacing and balancing literally everything that could cause it. 4wd blinking light came back today to top things off.

    Also, if I went 3rd gen due to 2nd gen tax is there anything you brought with you from your 2nd gen? I was going to build this thing into a crawler eventually but I want to build from a relatively solid foundation.

    Did someone say part out??? There's nothing you can bolt onto a Tacoma to make it worth any more money. It only increases desirability to someone looking for exactly what you have, aftermarket parts have zero value on the vehicle. Remove everything you can.

    Yep so I guess I need to remove all the work I have done in the last few months lol. CVJ axles, super bumps and pull sliders, JBA UCAs, canopy and the winch. Rest of everything probably has to stay since it replaced damaged bumpers from the accident. May be time for a dedicated off-roader and a tow rig but Tundras are pretty pricy too lol

    If you go the 3rd gen route, pull the front bed rail utility track thingy. 3rd gen only has them on the sides, but the 2nd gen one will bolt right up on the front.

    I’m in the market for some adjustable front shocks and I’m wondering if anyone manufacture is hold best in the PNW. King,Fox,ADS,Icon, and so on. Most of them come from desert racing not rain mud and snow so I’m curious what people’s experiences have been. Cheers

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    I can't speak for the other manufactures, but I've been running Kings for the past 65k miles and haven't had any problems. The first 55K saw heavy use on logging roads all year long.

    Stay away from the OME "high end" stuff. ADS seems to be the money shot

    All the suspension parts are interchangeable. I think roof racks are the same as well. So you could always buy some oem 3rd gen take off suspension/wheels for cheap and throw them on while you sell yours and then put your stuff on a 3rd gen. I thought 2nd gens were loyalists though :D

    Truck used to ride smooth for a truck, after being rear ended two years ago the vibrations have been relentless and past something you can just ignore comfortably for my only vehicle. Then the 4wd shit acting up has been a bit irritating that is fixable but idk this particular Tacoma doesn’t seem to be in the greatest shape since then.

    Toyota also chalked the vibrations up to the accident + lift a year ago or so. Knowing guys ride comfortably with a lift to an extent I am thinking it’s exclusively the accident. Aldercrest auto rebuild in Lynwood evaluated it after the accident and the frame wasn’t tweaked AFAIK, they said it wasn’t an issue.

    Good to know thanks for the info. I will let you know on that. I really don’t want to get rid of the truck but there comes a point I guess as well. Tough decision. Would be funny if the vibes went away as I started to go back to stock too lol...
