    Howdy guys,

    Been following this thread for a while, always cool to see what other Tacoma owners in the area are up to!

    I just placed an order for some JBA UCA's, and was wondering if anyone has experience installing UCAs and could lend a hand. I'm more than happy to comp you for your time and expertise. I've watched quite a few YouTube videos on the process and think I could tackle it, but also don't want to hit a tricky point and get stuck with front end disassembled (plus I hear this job is best when tackled by two!). I could buy new upper bolts so that the existing ones can get cut out - making the install faster.

    That said, I'm located up in Bellingham and it looks like a good majority of this group is in Seattle. Please let me know if you're interested, again, I can reimburse you for your time.

    Thanks all!

    Don’t cut the bolt to avoid bending the sheet metal. You’d still have to bend it to reinsert the new bolts correctly from the front and down. Otherwise you risk it falling out and your whole front wheel falling off if the nut shakes loose

    I was reading that others had that concern as well. Someone suggested adding a second nut to avoid the initial one from unthreading. Or marking the nut on the bolt to identify it it rotates at all. Probably best to do it the right way the first time, I just see that it can be a real pain!

    You could also use a nylon insert lock nut if you were really concerned about it. Plenty have people have flipped the bolt and I don't recall ever seeing someone report a failure.

    Bending the sheet metal out a little isn't a big deal, the bolt slides right out after a little massaging, and the splash guards pretty much hide any evidence that you've bent it. I was able to complete the job myself 2 years ago, and this last weekend I pulled the bolts again to replace my upper ball joints with no issues

    Hey y'all, I need to pick up 2200 pounds of flooring. Now much do you think I can get away with hauling in the back of the GX? I have Firestone airbags if sagging is the issue. Whats the actual limitation on GVW? Is is springs/brakes or some structural concern with the body? I was thinking 2 or maybe 3 trips.

    All I can say is that I’ve had over half ton in my Tacoma. I’m not saying it was smart but it did fine

    I think you’ll probably be limited by how much you can fit not the weight

    Yeah I did 1000 pounds of tile on the interstate right after I got it which was pretty dumb but worked out. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to fuck it up or smash into something. I have a dinky little trailer I can split out the load with so that might work better

    If anyone cares, 2 1000lb trips was laughably easy.

    Someone plan a Tahuya trip, so I can join in.
    I'm somewhat of a newb, and do not have all the necessities, yet, but would love to give it a go as inspiration.

    Who’s got the PN’s for the front wheel seals? Did they stop doing the 2-piece seals?

    The one I’m thinking about goes on the CV axle and then the other part of it presses into the hub on the CV axle side, I cannot find the seal that goes on to the CV axle
