    Thought I would update you guys....been pretty busy with the reg cab lately. Just finished the BHLM mod and satoshi grill...also color matched the grill with paint from automotivetouchup.com. Also installed foglights.

    So far:
    2009 Taco, 5 spd, SR5
    Wet Okole seat covers
    OEM Fogs
    Satoshi Grill (made by me with homer taco mesh)
    BHLM

    BFG AT's 265/75/16
    1 inch spacer on front (due to previous rubbing)
    Plasti dipped badges and rear bumper
    Aftermarket clutter catcher console
    Window Tint
    Kobalt low profile black tool box


    Love this thing...hope you guys approve. I've gotten lots of compliments on the grill....I live in a small town and I've only seen one or two besides mine.

    Check the U-bolts and shackles.
    Leaf spring suspensions weren't really designed with drifting in mind ;)

    You need a panhard bar.

    Traction bars will stop axle wrap, but won't keep it centered.

    But a panhard bar doesn't lend itself to a long-ish travel suspension.

    Runs across the rear end above the axle.
    Lower end is attached to the axle near the spring mount.
    Other end is attached to the frame above the opposite spring mount.

    That's why it's not good for longer travel suspensions... as the axle moves up and down, it causes SOME lateral movement (pushes out as it compresses), and in combination with traction bars or a 3-link suspension, tends to bind a bit. Properly designed 4-link suspensions don't tend to bind because they don't put much of an arc into the axle's travel.

    06 Prunner with AAL and Trd suspension W/lift
    Previous owner used to haul heavy loads, so he put an AAL on it and TRD front suspension with a lift and custom rear suspension for added weight capacity. I recently installed a tow package (Curt with lifetime warranty) So i will definitely see what this thing can handle as far as weight goes.
    I have a 2006 Navy-dark blue regular cab with 82,000 miles. Works well, suspensions really stiff (ADD A LEAF) and it bugs me sometimes but i get over it. i love my truck. too bad the paint is chipping away!!! TOYOTA YOU MAKE A DAMN GOOD TRUCK BUT YOUR PAINT IS CRAP!!! First goes the clear coat, then a little gravel nick starts expanding and peeling over time.

    take a look at any 4th gen Fbody. it has a panhard bar. I know a watts link is an upgrade tho. may want to take a look at that.

    get a set of stock 5lug leaf springs. they are super cheap and will be better than a crappy AAL and provide the same lift.

    You can probably hit a 17 flat or 17.1 with a good reaction of like .250

    Is a rear main a fairly common leak on higher mileage motors? I hope that's the leak under mine right now...looks like trans has to come out to do it...I'll do a service on it at the time of the rear main job I guess...what kinda fluid these things take? It's an Aisin A30-400 or something
