    Black phosphate coating is awful at protecting against moisture in general. First rain and it’s done.

    Ac went out so I changed the motor and resistor. Took about an hour. Should have been less difficult but the hardest part was getting the wiring pulled from the old motor.

    Added a 3/4" Bora spacer to keep the tire off of the rear shock when stuffed.

    Quick question. Was this only necessary when you went up to 35's? What are the offset and backspacing of your wheels? I have 33's (285/70R17's) now and will be doing a 12 inch shock relocation for the rear of my truck. I have 1.25" spidertrax now but only on the stock +30 offset TRD sport rims. I will be moving to a 17x9 with a -12 mm offset and really want to do away with my spacers.

    These came in. Quality is top notch. V3 Clearance is on par if not slightly higher than stock. Cant wait to get them installed!

    I’m keeping my tradition of teaching my kids how to drive in the taco. We were in an empty college parking lot and no cars around.

    I can't say for certain but I never noticed my 33s rubbing on the suspension when one of the tires was fully stuffed. Wheels have 3.5" backspacing and -25mm offset

    Got my Bare outfitters Trailgate panel installed. It showed up in one piece no thanks to UPS. It looked like the box fell out of the truck at 60 mph. I immediately put it to good use.taco126.jpg
    Then moved my first aid kit and cpr kit to this bag that was my dad's when he was in the army back in the early 70's. Probably gonna redo the strap to make it a little shorter and need to sew in some velcro or come up with another strap so it doesn't just hang there.

    Also finally got my Caliraised pods mounted to the front bumper for foglights.

    Starting to disassemble my front suspension and I have one more bolt before I can start installing the new stuff. Anyone have any tips on how to get the bolt at the bottom of the shock out? I can spin it but its difficult to spin. Bushing doesn't look like its spinning with it but it will not budge
