    the dude has his own welding shop.. I think he just enjoys building and welding shit. Really nice guys.

    granted, it’s HREW steel and not DOM.. but for my purposes, hot rolled is overkill

    Fighting the fight (RUST) cleaned up as best I could the rear axle and hit it with some Krylon rust fighter paint . Took my tail gate apart and bed lined the Mobtown tailgate protector and the center piece. Dremel with wire brush and cleaned the bottom of gate where the metal is crimped because rust (3rd time I did this ) brushed rusty metal primer on it then sprayed it with the Krylon rust fighter . Not done yet ,waiting on stuff to dry 5523CF8E-2C44-4A09-820F-08EC2A7EF2A1.jpg1E6D9997-45DD-4BFB-8381-EE30C55A8D18.jpgC7CA116F-D646-4410-837C-654C72535BBD.jpg5ABBE7CE-010B-4EDF-8894-AAF48C75DCE2.jpgC78760F6-920B-4115-9CC6-E362FC46C91F.jpg

    HREW vs. DOM is often debated but honestly HREW is a good fit for 99% of dudes with sliders. It's just that usually everyone thinks they belong to that 1% when they are actually the 99%. This goes for myself too lol because I went with DOM but HREW would have been more than fine. 4xinnovations made a video comparing them both. Not scientific at all but just to show what they can take and what you can expect. It's kind of long but I started the video at the HREW testing portion and it can take a pretty good beating, doubt many of our tacomas will ever see that much. They even found that using DOM meant less deflection of the sliders themselves but it started bending the frame instead. They also tested square tubing.

    And certainly design and the quality of the welds will play a big part as well. DOM that is just bugger welded together vs HREW that has some quality welds done.

    Made a real difference in the sound coming from the doors. More solid and tighter mid bass. Doors have a nice weight to them when shutting. Not difficult at all, just invest in some thin cloth gloves, it really tears your knuckles up. Only advise, other then the gloves, when laying the film on the inner side of the door work with small pieces and make sure your surface is clean. GL

    Fixed my driver side window. For a couple months now my window would make a 'clunk' noise when rolling it down anywhere from like the very top to maybe a couple inches down. I feared the worse and thought the tab that is glued to the glass so it can connect to the track came undone. I shut my eyes and prayed it would still work or magically the problem would go away. Obviously that did not work. One day I finally heard something metal fall down to the bottom of the inside of my door whilst rolling my window down. Weirdly, the noise was the same and the window still worked.

    Yesterday I finally got around to taking the door panel off and removing part of that inner plastic lining to poke around. I could see the most rear window track wheel would come off the track when I rolled the window all the way up, and when rolling it down it would like slam back onto the track (the 'clunk'). I also noticed there was a bolt missing from that most rear window track wheel. So, I removed my front door speaker so I could slide my hand all the way inside the door, feeling around blindly I found the fallen bolt. Popped that guy back in its home and bam, all works like new! Love when problems turn out to be nothing major. Just wish I would've looked into this sooner.
