    Beware of minor rubbing. It can lead to later damage. Ask me how I know?
    :anonymous:


    If it’s on flares or the plastic bumper or the wheel well liner, eventually it can pull them off. If it’s the firewall or inner fender it can case damage to your core support. Just keep an eye out...

    our trucks/lifts/etc are very different but minor rubbing has caused me a lot of head aches in the long run.

    oh I feel ya. *knock on wood* the only thing that’ll make me part ways with my truck is an asshole totaling it on me... even then if possible I’d buy it back to cut the back half off and truggy it or something along those lines. Or LS swap it if the engine blows. Either way I have plans for it to be 100% toy one day.

    I’ll get another car one day but the taco isn’t going anywhere.

    Oh for sure, I understand completely and thanks for the helpful comments. Only rubbing I have is on the inner fender plastic at full lock in reverse and it's extremely minor, or if I hit a U-turn at full lock at high speed. Going to fix with heat gun + small lift in near future. Flexed all the way and it's such a minor rub I don't think I could hurt it if I tried without going full Dukes Of Hazard and that's definitely not happening. Not my first rodeo with ze automobiles haha!

    Nice install! How long did it take you?

    I've got two sets of shock hoops unclaimed and ready to ship for anyone who wants to order.

    Has anyone replaced the rear driveshaft boot on a 2nd Gen?

    Has anyone used the Spicer #211932X boot kit?

    From what I can see it looks identical to the original Toyota boot as it is illustrated, but they don't list the ID for both ends or the overall length.

    The original boot is four ribs/five if you count the bigger end, 4 3/4" long, and the ID is 1 3/4" on one end and 1 1/8" on the other.

    That's about right for the first time doing one. Grinding off the old stuff and finding the *&%&*^%ing tool I just had in my hand are definitely the worst parts.

    Thats at full droop. Factory setup doesn't let you get that angle

    I have a TruCool trans cooler as well. I ended up keeping my stock cooler and running my TruCool inline. Definitely notice a difference when hauling gear. Looks like you replaced the stock cooler?
    Also how do you like those X-Bull recovery tracks? I'm kind of new in learning about recovery tracks in general.
