    This summer I have many many plans for my truck. Lately there has been many little issues coming up with my truck and lack of care for it:(
    Anyways here they are:

    Take off 3in body lift (any one wanna buy it?)
    Put on air conditioning belt
    New offroad front and rear bumper
    winch and recovery gear
    power steering fix (really loud when I turn, when it was in for something completely different the mechanic said it was missing a bolt so he put one in. Still not the fix though)
    New tires (hopefully BFG MT 33x9.5x15)
    New steelies
    New tail lights
    Get my camper dome light to turn on whenever i need it, and get the brake light hooked up
    New sub (hopefully in a custom box to fit in the bigger cubby hole in my ext. cab)
    Rubber floors (attempt to do this, if not new carpet)
    New center console (00-04 version?)
    Cargo Rack
    Darker tint
    Fix rusted spot from my bed hitting the cab denting it and repaint it
    New LED dash lights (stock ones are ugly as hell)
    Get the headlights to look new again (really oxygenized is the correct word I think)
    Turn signal mod

    Thats all I can think of for now. How many of those will be done, I have no idea. I'm working two jobs this summer so i'll hardly have time to work on them. What are your plans? 1st gen, 2nd gen, FJ's :drool: , 4 runners?

    God I cannot remember the correct terms of tires to save my life. 285 means 285 mm wide right? If it is I'm going skinnier as well I hate having wide tires that completely cover my truck in mud if I so much as go off pavement. Plus I live in Wyoming and from what I know skinnier tires do better in snow. Long travel build will be sweet man good luck with that! I wish I had those skills!

    Yes the 285's are just under a half inch decrease in width.

    correct, 285 is the width in mm. i would have gotten 285s originally, but i got a killer deal on the 295s.

    i doubt i'll notice much of a difference in the change of size since the 285s are only just under a half inch narrower, and about a half inch taller. they're just easier to come by.

    weathertech window visors
    trd cold air intake (that's still kinda iffy)
    bakflip g2 tonneau cover
