    Not what I did to my Tacoma but what I did in it. 30 minutes to kill waiting for my grandkid to get off work so I pulled up an old Oasis concert on the ole Atoto. Good jams. :rockband:

    Looks great, did you drill and insert a nut in the ball? I expoxied a lock nut into the one I made but getting the 5 to line up straight I ended up putting a jam nut on also.

    It’s been an interesting week. On Monday I messaged a guy about a rear axle from a TRD-off-road down in Orlando. It was a junkyard with predetermined prices so it was only $450 and I was scheduling a time to come pick it up on thanksgiving. While I was at work on Tuesday I asked my girlfriend to call him and ask him a question for me since I was at work and he hadn’t answered my message from the night before. She went ahead without telling me and paid for the axle then drove down to Orlando to pick it up for me… in her 2009 Hyundai Sonata.

    I’m gonna marry that girl but she definitely jumps into things without thinking sometimes. Eventually I’ll get her car to the shop and try to finagle it out with an engine hoist and a few more hands. Then I can find a way to test everything and see if I need new gears for it (does anyone know how I could test this once I get it on jack stands?). Then on Wednesday I brought my truck into the shop and finally got my new suspension installed.

    I love it, but is that much squat normal for an Icon AAL with the overload leaf still in place? It’s got a few hundred pounds of tires, wheels, and some tools I like to keep at home in the bed in that picture. I put in Bilstein 5100s all around, C59-314 Dobinson coil springs up front with new top hats, Icon AAL in the rear with the overload leaf kept in place, Pacer Nighthawk wheels with 255/75R17 KO2s and 5 new TPMS sensors so I can finally be rid of that light on my dashboard.

    Nah, I just sent a tap straight into the wood. The threads bite just fine and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere while driving around.

    When I replaced my speakers I just threw those out and used machine screws, lock washer and nuts. I didn't trust them holding the old screws in place with the added wattage.

    Did you replace the tweeters as well or just the bottom door speakers?

    I bought them from a buddy who went back to stock for $700 but I think retail is either 1100 or 1400 and that’s not including shipping
