    I love my toyota to death and ive loved everyone ive had, bud why do they have so much $#iT so difficult, i swear every time i do something to my truck it takes a day longer then normal because toyota makes me go around my own ars. my body lift came in today and i went to start putting it on and i couldnt even do the bed because the torx heads for the bolts through the bed are so big i dont own one and cant even find one that size at lowes or sears. and while i was back there i realized i only have two tie-down points, both of which are in the rear of the bed... who on earth thought that was a good idea? sorry i needed to vent and this is the only logical place lol

    ha wish i could drive to greenville got a noise coming from the front right hub that scares the shit out of me some im not driving it for the time being. and im impatient if i wouldve had the money for the alcans and coils to get me up to 9 inches of lift at the time i wouldve done that. and i mean they never intended on me putting dana 60's under it either but thats gonna happen eventually :)

    ya im doing 9 inches of lift til i can switch a few things around, im 20 years old logical thinking isn't my strong suit, and auto-zone it is then i didnt think of that. and dont think this is a lack of mechanical skill i put on the fabtech and did all my other mods this should be a cake walk ha

    The Tacoma has to be about the easiest truck to work on. Go put a Body lift on a Ford or Chevy, if you think the Toyota Engineers werent thinking....
