    They just did some general maintenance and took it out stock to see what it would do today. The build piece should start next week.

    did you hear that gay dual exhaust? It sounded HORRIBLE! I just sold my '99 and it sounded 10 times better with the stock exhaust.

    Yeah that can't be safe lol. And the funny part is they could have made the tool to hold it in about 1/2 hour like I did, then use the proper tools to tighten it down.

    Also when they said you can spot a 4wd tacoma by the 6 lugs was pretty funny.
