    Received my hydraulic bumpstop bolt on mount kit from locked offroad today. Goddang they look and feel good. This was my big black friday purchase and I am extremely happy with them so far. Unfortunately they'll have to sit on top of the pile of parts

    Just take the bolts it comes with to Ace hardware if there's one near you, find the thread and pitch and then choose from the many security bolt options that they have there. They've never disappointed me in their selection like home depot.

    Threw in the new navigation head unit with a new antenna cable (86101-04030) to be sure I got AM/FM reception.
    I do not want to run an adapter for anything so most of the parts for the install will be OEM.

    I'll do a complete write-up when it's 100% working. I've been reading all the install threads to find part numbers.

    Okay. Thanks. Do I need to add more air or what. To make both balance.

    Got to use my new cordless impact wrench when I rotated the tires. I was a little nervous lifting the truck for the first time, but my old jack worked quite well and I had it on the stands in no time. Decided to clean the inside of the wheels, which turned out to be difficult. I tried some new wheel cleaner at first, but it barely made a dent in the brake dust. Finally used simple green and a brush. The insides are now silver again (more or less)

    Should have assembled them on the truck for a quicker, more worry free installation!
    I don't think you meant to quote me. If you did and your asking if air will help balance tires, no.

    Mines due the 7th, $164 out the door. I am 2 years older though. Indiana is great, no inspections, no hassle. I bet you could title a Vin plate. hahaha

    On another Note, I've confirmed my fear that the mystery rattle is my AC Clutch going out. Started making a little noise a little while ago and finally got over to my buddys shop yesterday to confirm. Ive never done an AC Clutch but a video on youtube didn't make it seem to bad. Its going to cost me around $150 in parts and at least 1/2 day in labor. In my search I also found a post by @Jon G where he bypassed the AC on an 07 with an 80.5" belt. I've done this bypass multiple times on old S-10's. Thanks to his leg work I don't have to measure out my just in case route. That's just in case the thing seizes up before I can get around to fixing it. I would prefer to wait until the weather breaks this spring.

    @Rick_Taco Its not worth it to wait ! If the bearing in your clutch asy craps out your in for a belt "possible chance" of it getting sucked into the fan taking out the fins and the sending it through the rad :(

    this is a shameless plug for my 007 Taco Pro Build

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/007-taco-pro.527692/


    In this build you can find the lower steering shaft REBUILD yes it can be rebuilt for about $30
    the AC delete that i did
    all sorts of wrenching adventures on the 007
    and my poor attempt at being funny
    Bs

    This is not your average build !!!!!

    I haven't had a chance to REALLY test it out yet. But the 30 minutes of road time I've put in I'd say it feels stiffer in a good way. There isn't any *abnormal* body roll. At you speed up you can feel the truck hug the ground nicely as well.

    If you're looking into kits I can definitely give you better feedback after a month or so of driving it. PM me so I dont forget.

    Did your Tacoma have navigation with your former head unit? If not, did you have to add any antenna for the navigation?
    Where did you pick up your new head unit from?

    I swear, Hawaii gets the short end on stock head units. Limited in apps and capability.
