    So after my bumpers are finished, I am now planning to long travel my truck. This means a lot of saving and mods on hold for the most part while I gather as much information and parts needed for this project. :cool:

    Well, I'm at the point where I can go one of two ways with my build, and I just can't shake the urge to go fast.

    Instead of SAS, just get a +2 long travel and have the best of both worlds :D

    Oh and a big nudge in my decision was the 92 runner I just acquired. That'll be my crawler eventually.

    It was fun to put in. 200 bucks kind of a toss up. I personally like it. I have airaid cai, power and T's and now this so yes definitely noticeable from stock. As far as if you want to buy, only you can answer that. But for me it was worth it.

    I don't own a Taco anymore.
    Hey guys, figured I'd copy my post into here:

    Quoted from facebook, TW member and friend Shane flopped his truck on it's side earlier this afternoon in the Death Valley, Trona area. Somehow, he was able to get it back on 4 wheels, but upon starting the truck it died after 5 seconds. I helped him diagnose it to be a hydro-lock from oil in the combustion chambers, he got the oil out, but now the truck wont start. He suspects the battery died, but we do not know if he has damaged the internals. Possibly need a tow truck, might just need a jump. He is completely alone, no passengers, no other vehicles with him.

    He needs to get back home...anybody in that area willing to help out a fellow TW member?

    If you can help, please PM me so I can contact him on facebook, since that seems to be his only form of communication at this point (oddly enough).

    BTW, anyone local need some parts (anything 4wheelparts sells) let me know. I can likely get you a better deal than they'll offer you. :D
