    Some misc projects from today.

    Wired up a KC cyclone as an interior light. The Tacoma Beast led kit just wasn’t cutting it with the cage in the way.

    And I got a small 1.5 ton jack for Xmas so I got going on an extension to make it tall enough for the truck. Need to fine tune the extension adjustments and get a real pin and then build a mount for it. Planning on mounting to the top of the bed cage.

    Those sliders look sick man! One suggestion, run the gussets towards the vertical wall of the square tube leg so that if the sliders take a super hard hit, they won’t crush into the square tube at all. If you run them towards the left or right of where you have them over the vertical wall of the square tube then it will have more support underneath the gusset. They look super dope. I really like the kick up. Just a suggestion for the next set you build.

    Truck is getting some serious love in 2020. First time ever it will have a matching spare rim, and first time in about 5 years it will have a full size, brand new, matching spare tire. Big upgrade from the spare tire with 6 plugs in the sidewalk that still leaks lol.

    Just need to pull and paint the faux beadlock bolts black.


    The DD Elantra is also getting a full size spare but the cheapest steel rim and cheapest full size tire lol. Better than the can of fix a flat that came with it.

    Rough as in abrupt lol. Was bottoming the front with my compression adjusters cranked to full hard. A little digging though to smooth out the transition and this could be a big booter

    6in fabtech lift, icon billet UCA, fox 2.5 Coil overs with DSC - stiffer shim stack 700LBS springs, fox 2.0 12in in the rear, fox 2.0 hydro bump stops front and rear, BAMF shock relocation kit, re-gear to 4.10 factory E-locker and ARB locker up front, all pro apex front bumper and sliders, brute force HC rear bumper with swing out tire and jerry can holder plus super sweet fold down table that made cutting up my truck totally worth it, lights everywhere... like really everywhere, dual battery set up with yellow tops, more rocker switches than i can count, sweet USB/AUX bat monitor in bed of truck. Saved weight and gained massive HP ( guessing like gains of 150HP ) by removing sway bar and ripping out carpet for custom rubber matting. installed custom pin work down both sides of truck ( big shout out to manzinita bushes ) hard core black paint job on bumpers / sliders / engine hood / cabin hood from rattle can paint available at wallmart. and of course ice cream truck music to mess with lil kids ( best $30 ever spent )
    Sweet build , I was wondering if you have noticed any issues with over heating the tranny with the 37’s ? Mainly in 4low ?

    None yet, but really the only two times I’ve had it in 4low I haven’t put a ton of stress on it. One time was snow wheeling in deep powder so it was already plenty cold out to help cool things down. And the the first time I had it in the rocks was actually last weekend. It was cooler out and it was an easier trail and I barely got much above 1500-2k rpms. I do have the Trans cooler from Toyota that comes with the tow package and that helps a lot. Never had issues with overheating the trans the last few years on 35’s and I wheeled it hard during those years.

    Only 7 months after bending the shit out of my old sliders, I finally finished chopping the old legs and plate off the frame. And to give the new sliders a fresh start, I did some 3/16” plate overlays down the frame. Rosette welded all the factory holes on the back side of the frame.

    Next step will be to fold over that pinch weld so the new sliders can tick up nice and close.
