    You can see that it pokes out a little but it's not noticeable

    Just stared at the taco today and thought about the day I'll finally have my suspension installed. Lol

    I went out last Saturday hoping to do the Hammer hangers and it was 20* I said nope. I did manage to get the brake lines done and a good start on some lighting when it warmed up a touch. I know 20 isn't probably cold where you are but not comfortable to me

    Set to November 5, 1955 and say hi to Doc. In all seriousness that worked out well. Nice setup.

    Not enough

    Double Cardan joint highly recommended! I tried everything leading up to this and it did solve all my vibrations...

    I have vibration right around 40 mph. It drives me nuts. I’ve researched it and everything I’ve found says the solution is a 1 piece driveshaft.

    I received my new steering wheel today and it looks great! :D Can't wait to get it installed. I found the Steering Wheel and Airbag for $400 w/ free shipping on eBay.. Seemed like a good deal. It took a lot of research to find. The price seemed good for both and it comes with a 90 day parts warranty which is what sold me.



    This is going on my 2009 Tacoma. I have steering wheel controls so I'm not expecting to have to buy a new clock spring but we will see. I chose the Highlander over the new Tacoma Steering wheel because the ergonomics are better for my style of driving.

    Did you buy a whole new driveshaft or just the joint? Is the joint something you can get and install between the 2 shaft pieces yourself?

    Depends on the device you're using, not the head unit.
    As long as your phone/tablet can connect to multiple Bluetooth devices, you'll be fine. My phone connects to the OBDII reader, head unit, and my watch at the same time with no issues.
    Also note: Bluetooth OBDII readers are not compatible with crApple without specific adapters.

    A driveshaft shop will have to install it in your current driveshaft. The driveshaft would need to be cut and shortened, then they could install the cardan joint and then balance it as an assembly.

    No it doesn't. My mirror is just a mirror, no compass, auto dim or home link.

    So I need some advice. I’m looking into getting skids since everyone is having a sale currently.
    Do I really need the full skid trilogy? Because money is tight-ish, and I’d like to buy only what I have to.
    I still have the factory skid, should I go full trilogy or just one of them?

    I did all 3 but I would go with what’s comfortably affordable. Deffinately start with the front ifs skid and work your way back

    I've had mine on my windshield for about 2 years, and I haven't had any problems with it coming loose.

    Guess it depends on your driving and off-roading time. Also have you looked in the BST threads to see what others are selling?
