    No, I welded them up too high up when I re did the perches, loosing up travel. Also, bump stop mounts are to be lowered. My whole rear setup was a shit show from the beginning thanks to the idiots that fabbed it. Mainly the reason I got into metal fabrication/welding. Better to fuck it up myself then paying some stupid ass idiots.

    Local guy here (Murrieta). I introduced myself in the IE thread a couple months back, but this seems to be the "real" spot where the locals hang out, so I'm posting up and subbing.

    I'm new to Tacomas as of October 2020, but I'm hopefully on my way to a solid build. Just trying to balance the right amount of daily driver vs. weekend warrior vs. dedicated trail rig. Haven't met any other local Taco folks yet, even though I know the area is literally infested with them. Hope to see some of you around town soon. I'll try to make it to the next local meetup or run.

    Edited to add: I guess I should throw some BS in here, too. Here's a project I recently completed. Built a bed mounted slide for an ARB elements fridge. The whole setup fits nicely under the Diamondback bed cover. I'm not a welder, so I ended up riveting the whole thing together. It's definitely overbuilt, and if I had to do it all over again, I'd use 1/8" aluminum instead of 1/4".

    Thank you. And yes, we do a lot of extended camping trips (my wife and son and I), and I don't like to mess around with ice and coolers. I had a 2010 Nissan Xterra that was all decked out for overlanding, which I sold in October and picked up the Tacoma. I'm still in the process of building it up for our adventures. I'm learning a little more about what I need from it each time we take it out. Here's a photo of the Xterra, and a couple of shots of the Tacoma on some recent trips so far:
