    wait really? did any of them also come with that special "manuel" transmission I've been hearing so much about?


    speaking of, how rare are manual tundras? I think I've only seen one (and i got to drive it at my old job)

    The only Tundra I can remember that was a manual trans was a 1st gen & I'm not even a 100% sure on that so I'd say theres not a lot of them out there....

    I'm thinking the T100 (I'd love to have one w/v8) & 1st gen tundys w/3.4 had manual option..

    That sounds right..

    PM either Jason (speedfreak) or member 2008taco (chris) these guys can direct you ....

    Big thanks to @Speed Freek for installing my coilovers today! Truck rides great, it feels more planted and is much better hitting bumps.

    Not getting an alignment in Cali though! Would've been $170 otd, insane!

    Yes
    Look up Trueline alignment shop in El Cajon, they do it old school there for only $65. Driving back to AZ could wear your tires really bad.

    If you're not set up for 220 then yes, a Hobart 140 is a great machine. I used to have one and used it for years on small projects after I got my larger welder.

    Definately could! The alignment seems to be really close, the lca main bolts/alignment cams weren't touched so all that changed was the ride height/control arm angle at ride height Thank you ill look into them for sure!

    If you went up higher then your tires are probably riding a bit on the outside edges like this \ / if so that will cause cupping and all kinds of bad wear.
