    Just wante to let you guys know I am a former Lexus/Toyota Master Tech and I work from my home/shop doing anything from Scheduled maintenance, to repairs, and any aftermarket installs of all kinds, like limited slips, suspension, engine performance and upgrades, and extensive knowledge of building and tuning of forced induction systems.

    I am also a welder with years of experience who can fabricate and do custom tube work, and live in Vista about 2 minutes from the freeway for easy access..

    I have worked on many trucks on this forum, for example I just installed fiberglass fenders and bedsides a little bit of tube work and welded some gusseting on the frame on a members truck, but wanted to make a thread that I am available since work is a little slow. Always happens at the begining of the year...:( I can save you guys a lot of money.

    PM me if you guys have any questions or want more info

    Thanks for looking
    -Jason

    Just wanted to thank the local members once again for giving me the opportunity to make a living and also helping people save some money, I tell it like it is, and I dont sell BS.

    I work on customers trucks/cars as if they are my own vehicles.

    I am also a motorcycle tech and can do maintenance and repair, including valve adjustments on late model Japanese off road motorcycles (250 and 450 4 stroke) as I have complete shim sets for all. Not to mention full race prep for desert and or motocross.

    If your looking to save some money and have the work done properly without getting ripped off, please dont hesitate to contact me, PM me if you have any questions at all.

    Thanks!

    Bumpity, got a couple of open days next week if anybody needs work and wants to save some cash.

    Thx for your continued support guys, and I greatly appreciate all the work I have been getting from my awesome TW friends!

    Any maintenance, aftermarket installs of pretty much anything (suspension, lights, performance work, general upgrades, ECU tuning, S/C installs, etc..).

    Just PM me with any questions you might have, I would love to help. This is my PRIMARY job, I soley work from home and I work on all makes and models (No electrical on European cars :eek: but mechanical work is OK)

    I also work on off-road motorcycles, I can do everything you need on those from routine maintenance, aftermarket parts install, to full race prep!

    I can also do welding of any kind, steel, aluminum, stainless, MIG or TIG process available.

    Here is an aluminum skid I built for my Jeep for an example.

    Yes, depending on the gears I just make setup bearings from the old ones and go from there to get the proper lash and contact surface, and I have a bender and welder and can make bumpers etc...

    I have a scanner, yes.

    Haha, you and everybody else! I put red tape on them but I obviously need red flashing LEDs instead. I am short so I coast right under them so I forget since I am a dwarf, lol.

    Nice meeting you too bud, if theres anything I can do for you let me know (no gay stuff!)

    We should get some members or whoever for that matter together for some off-road shenanigans!

    Got it, glad you got it all taken care of, thanks for thinking of me though!

    Just got done yesterday with an HPOP O-ring failure on a 2004 Ford Powerstroke 7.3, what a dirty terrible mess!!! Now I remember why I dont work at a Diesel shop anymore...

    This morning I installed a True-trac LSD into a 1st gen Tacoma Pre-runner, now he gets to spin both tires now, also more fun in the rain!

    Thanks for the work Brian.

    Thanks for your continued support guys!

    You have a timing chain, it has a pretty long replacement interval, probably 200K+ miles.

    As far as the serp belt is concerned, I replace them when I can start to see cracks on the side with the V-grooves on it. That is usually 50K+ miles on that one.

    If you need help with the pulleys let me know, I can do it.
