    ive been thinking about the bushings replacing. Where did you order yours from? also, how difficult is this?

    Before i purchased my t4r, the original owner had just replaced the steering rack bushings with polybushings..i love how it steers.

    I really want to get a fridge soon for the truck. I hate dealing with ice and clunky coolers, been seeing some nice ones on the expo classifieds.

    It's totally worth it. I love my arb 50 quart. I just keep it on with water and what not for daily use too.

    Bushings are from Amazon. I believe the part number is like 8.3115G. It's a fairly involved install I did over multiple days

    Yeah, once I can manage the funds I will get one. Especially with the Tundra since I can keep it in the bed with the shell and roll the rear window down to access it while camping or on the road.

    I would go with the Whiteline bushings though as they don't require your to reuse your stock sleeves and washers. You just remove the old ones and swap in the new. I never did it to my 4runner, but plan on it at some point with my Tundra.

    That's like being asked to wait for sex

    Now put the bumper on and let's see it.


    What finish did you get?

    its a rough black finish.. it matches the bajarack. I got tired of touching up the spray paint so i sent it to get powdercoated.

    Ill end up installing it thursday. I work until tomorrow and im off for a four day weekend due to new years.
