    with that box you have to cut off the tabs that stick out from the rear wall support because the box sits over them. they are welded on not bolted on as well.

    Installed a warn m8-s in my shrockworks bumper last night. Sadly was not as easy as just bolting it all in, had to custom mount the contactor box in order to clear the core support.

    I figured i would have to cut something, which i would rather not do. anyone know of a good premade box that only needs the plastic storage taken out?

    Too nasty and cold here. All I could manage was to install No-Loss valve caps on both Tacos. I've used them on almost every 4wd I've owned...[​IMG]

    I've been thinking about this same kind of thing for my DCLB as my service dog might enjoy that better on longer rides.

    Had a small issue with my winch install and needed a extension for my controller cable. I finally found one on the US Offroad website for $34.95. Good price I thought until it came to shiping $28. I was told by a member on here they are a vendor and checked the vendor list and decided to send them a PM with no confidence they would respond. To my suprise early the next morning there was a response, they resolved the shipping issue, and provided a link to the corrected issue. Great customer service @usoffroad :thumbsup:. They even continued correspondence and the item will be shipped tomorrow.

    It is a steel frame with 80/20 aluminum on top. Want to try to keep it as light as possible since I have a 4cyl

    SAVE MONEY DOING IT THIS WAY. Hope this helps someone.....

    Replaced all (3) u-joints and center carrier bearing today. Was pretty easy as long as you have the right tools.
    Total Price for parts 170.73 Labor: $0.00 Toyota quote, around $1,100.00 Lowest shop price I found $600.00 plus parts.

    Required Parts:
    U-joints (3) each $7.94 + $5.49 shipping. Spicer supplies Toyota.. These were on sale at Toyota for $86.00 dollars each.
    These u-joints come with (1) zerk fitting each for grease applications
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DOI8TQW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=AI3KZUDOO3LZA&psc=1

    Center Carrier Bearing..... $62.94 This is the exact same item you would pay 4 time more for at Toyota. If you zoom in,
    it even has Toyota on it and the 2WD drive Part number. AND YES... This fits.... I just installed it today...

    Was doing a little TLC inside the Tacoma today.

    Vacuumed the inside of the truck and was thinking----------------------------

    While I have the vacuum out I decided to blow out the engine compartment specifically underneath the intake plenum just incase the critters decided to build a nest under it, nothing found. YEA.

    Also blew out the inner fender wells from the door jam an also from the hood hinge area, clean , clean, clean.
    No critter nests and no leaves.

    I try to keep up with the TLC as the weather permits during the winter and at this point I'm winning.
