    That photo worked out well in the jambo video.

    Wheels and tires will be here in 10 days!!! Hell yeah!!! Got a decent deal 1700 OTD at 4wd.com
    16x8 M/T Baja lock
    285/75/16 km2

    Now how do I go about doing the pinch weld mod? I searched it and found some info on it but I need a few more details. Can I use a grinder and cut it? Do I hammer the heck out of it? Should I do it now or when I get the wheels and tires? The more info the better as I am new to the whole cutting stuff off of my truck and i want to do it right. I will be doing mild wheeling if that matters.

    I haven't done it, but I believe you can cut it with a cutoff wheel, or pound it back. Up to you when you want to do it....

    I don't know how similar the 2nd gen and 1st gen are as far as the pinch weld goes, but on the 2nd gen you don't want to cut it off as you'll open a seam. Just beat it back with a BFH and you'll be fine.

    I think I've ended up hauling more in my Tacoma in the last 6 mo I've owned it than the 11 years I had the GMC. Or it seems like it anyways. 2 round trips to Home Depot this weekend for lumber to rebuild a second of the fence (started out as a patch/repair job that quickly turned to full out replace). One more trip (of course) will be needed as I'm short 3 stakes to finish the job. Did give me an excuse to buy a new cordless drill motor which was invaluable to doing the job solo. Of course my dumb ass forgot the sunscreen in the morning before heading to the car show then through the early fence repair job - my arms are now the color of Dr. Pepper can.
