    By the looks of that CV it is actually facing down rather than up....? No bueno? Normal? Looks weird/crooked/broken..? To me

    I don't have a roof rack. I want one though.

    I've never installed a roof rack on a Tacoma. I've read quite a few threads about it. Sometimes they do leak.

    I work on boats. I drill big ____ holes in the bottoms of the hulls and I use this sealant. Never had 1 problem with leaks. It's white, it's messy, have a lot of paper towels or whatever and ready to easily grab 1 at a time, but I guarantee you that it will never leak.

    For cleanup that just smears use a little acetone - but don't breathe that crap!

    Looks like you've got a degree or two of negative camber. What's the alignment sheet say?

    Well, got home from work and decided I needed to start removing some “rust” from the undercarriage of the truck...........the moment I start cleaning, I realized about 80% of it is just dried up mud/dirt from the previous owner that’s just stained on everything. A little elbow grease with a green scotchbrite pad and my rear-end came out pretty decent. I’ll probably be going under the truck for a couple of hours everyday after work for the next few days to clean up as much as I can before I need to take off the wheels and get some hard to reach spots this weekend.

    From the looks of the picture it appears the rubber boot on the outer cv is compressed More than normal.? Giving me a thought of a lot of camber.? Thus making it look like it’s crooked.?

    That’s mainly due to the lift height

    Replaced the antenna assembly due to the original having a stubby antenna glued in, not too bad to replace.

    Unifilter mod because why not. Original foam was fine, placed the foam and intake silencer in the unifilter bag and stuck it in a box labled "Stock Tacoma Parts"

    Polished the yellowing from the headlights out. I will need to eventually replace them with new since they are showing cracks/crazing on the inside.

    Other than that just researching what to do suspension wise. nothing crazy, just a fire road / light off roading capabilities with additional weight up front and rear from bumpers and a camper of some flavor. Really digging the DIY wedge camper
