    Rented the press from autozone, but the cups were not the right size. So after fucking with it forever I put one of the oversized cups on a jack and put it under the ball joint and put pressure on it. Smacked it with a 4lb hammer until it came out. It sucked.

    I cut mine off out of necessity. I was backing off a good sized obstacle (tip over challenge in Moab) and had a rock shove my pipe under my tire.

    Sounds like something that you'd see in a CrossFit gym

    I'm going to try it tomorrow. Have some LCAs that need the ball joint pressed out

    Find the right cup, you'll need it, but the jack under the joint with a big ass hammer did the trick. Getting it in wasn't any easier. And make sure its completely straight when you press it back in, it can become cockeyed in there and fuck your day up

    They're good tires especially for the price. All 4 mounted and balanced was like 750

    How do they ride on the road? I’m on the road 90% of the time. Only off-road a couple times a year. Trying to decide between airbags and new leaf springs like HD Dakar. I pull fairly heavy trailer more than I off-road.

    Did you start with the full Firestone kit then just add the cradles? Or did you have to fabricate your mounts? This is exactly what I have been thinking of doing for a while, just haven't found much info on it

    I also did the climate control knobs. And the LED license plate lights. I previously replaced the chrome badges, TACOMA x3 & TOYOTA, with black. However, I couldn't locate the "Prerunner, V6, and SR5 in black. So I did the black vinyl inserts.

    I have a squeaky throw out bearing so I’m planning on pulling the trans in the next month or 2. Living in Canada though this means my exhaust and the slave cylinder are on the extremely crusty side.

    So today I decided to tackle 1 of the 2 problem spots to make my life a little easier when it comes time to do the clutch.

    I replaced both of the manifold stays going from the trans to exhaust post cat. I also replaced the exhaust flange gaskets and everything got new oem hardware. The torches got big time use today.

    Passenger side stay was about to break off on the exhaust side.

    And she got a oil change with liqui molly spec tec oil and oem filter.
