    Someone told me about a 1/4 spacer too, could work too. I dont really mind a stiffer ride. If bumper happens its going to be more and more an offroad rig, which do not work with comfort haha

    I am moving to to Ottawa tomorrow (from Toronto), big on biking, skiing and camping with the family. Any recommendations, good mechanics or Toyota dealer's would be a good start.

    don't do any biking or skiing but there are biking trails all over the city. if you want biking or hiking tails then hop on over the river to the Gatineau hills. skiing I think most people just head to Tremblant. I think there is a slope in Pakenham but nothing big and fancy. Camping wise, well haven't really done much of that either, but im hoping to get out a little more on weekends this summer. I do all my own maintenance and my buddy is a mechanic so the truck never goes to the dealer haha but I do go to the Toyota dealer in Kanata for parts, their prices are actually pretty good. some items are a little more expensive then online but once u factor in the shipping its cheaper at the dealer some times

    I have generally had an overall good experience with Kanata Toyota also. The service manager is good to work with if you play it cool and let him do his thing. He went to bat with Toyota for issues with my last Tacoma several yrs back.

    I'd be good for the 6th of July, but June is pretty busy. Could be possible still. Now that the days are longer, we can set it late and stay late also lol

    Hey has anyone worked with Maksfabrication? I need to modify my KB Voodoo crossbars and was hopeful they might have a solution for a reasonable price-point.

    We use them for work purposes, they fab/machine garbage truck parts for us. Much cheaper and quicker than going OE in our case, Travis is a good dude, nice work.
    We've also used Shore Machine Works in a pinch with good luck.
