    More out of the ordinary work for the Tacoma yesterday. I'm done moving busted and rotten wood and just have 3 or 4 more loads of weeds to haul out and 1 more load of rock to move. I'm cleaning up my little lot of land in prep for a new house.

    [​IMG] Got the new Diode Dynamics Ssc2 installed and I need to run the wires still.

    super low profile as ditch lights.
    These are the @CaliRaisedLed ditch brackets which have been outdoors for two Northeast winters and still have zero corrosion.

    looking to get some night pics later on.

    Installed the ford ranger center bearing (carrier) replacement. This is as straight as I could get the two piece driveline without drilling out the bracket hole. Its dropped quite a bit from stock. I may play around with different heights. Does it matter how close to level the front section is? I have no idea how long the rear section should be at rest. This truck hasn’t seen stock height in years.

    That is exactly what I want for my 2012 Pyrite Mica. Looks very similar to what I had in my 2016 Sport. The mesh looks better than the oem to me.

    Nice work as usual, that's why I'm on the list.

    I love my black truck, but sometimes in the summer I see another color while there's sweat in my eyes and I think maybe I should do a color change lol

    So will it work, will I get the ok? LOL

    it happened winning at MOAB

    I'd say at that point you need a high clearance wrap around rear bumper with tree saver hoops on the side for bedside protection, possibly with a dual swingout to mount spare tire for easy access on trail and to install Archive hammer hangers with crossbrace, right?

    I really don't know if fiberglass is worth it
    stock: can install KBvoodoo side caps, fiberglass can't
    but, both have flat tops, which may or may not improve mounting topper, etc.
    I guess wider, looks cool, probably more tire clearance

    idk how u gonna find used bedsides. Maybe from a junkyard Taco in a front crash. IF the junkyard is reasonable on pricing...Then there's availability; how far away they are, if they have matching color

    I wonder what would happen if you hired a PDR guy
    or kicked it outward really hard
    but the plastic/composite bed blocks the inner portion of the bedside mounted on


    feel like I just got pulled over by the Swag Patrol told me I'm Not Flexin Enough

    I thought those were supposed to be yellow

    and how do u know about Wera Zyklop

    [​IMG]

    FWIW lifted suspension usually means carrier bearing drop spacers kit that lowers it anyway to reduce vibes (cheap from OME, etc.)
