    Some stuff
    Canceled my order after I’ve attempted to contact them at least 4 times, after I actually talked to someone and they said they would ship it a week ago. I understand there are issues in supply chains right now. I accept that, but the company needs to be communicating with me.

    how does that effect road drivability? i assume the rear end is a lot tighter but any cons to it so far?

    just about the greatest driveability enhancement you can do on these trucks for all driving conditions on or off road. no cons for use, just the cost of parts and installation. and gets rid of the 'Tacoma rear end jitters'.

    So back to this. i talked with my mechanic in NY. He said do 285/75/16 for the spare. Should be good. its not like ill be driving Cali to NY on it. just would be more comfortable and better than something skinnier.

    it will entirely change the character of the truck as well as helping rear articulation especially off road. the lack of solid feel in the rear makes the ride feel cheap, and you don't totally get it until you have proper hangers... you would never go back after having them.

    i have Archive Garage's Hammer hangers and the crosstube. there are minor differences in design but similar performance.

    Thank you, If by end caps you mean the pieces under the tail lights, they attach by 2 bolts and nuts provided just like in the video to the metal under the lights. They do not attach to the bumper. Once the bumper is positioned in place it is snug up against the cap.

    The only piece that needs to be cut under the tailgate/light section is the end of the quarter panel seen hanging down in the cutting section of the video. It's a small piece.

    The tubing comes closed off welded closed. Let me know if you have any other questions, I can DM you pics if you want.

    Yes, I saw that in the vid before initially commenting. Thanks again!
    The square tubing that runs parallel with the bumper is open-ended, at least on mine. Should be capped off, imo.

    Get a DMM from taco garage. The mount that comes with it is awesome. Phone doesn’t budge. That’s an 14” pipe wrench. 65151B3A-81E9-45F5-B733-2F3EBFBB39DB.jpg

    So far the rear end feels alot firmer and more planted. I will be bashing it up over the next few weeks on some trails to get a real feel. But honestly I don't see any cons to this. I realized the OEM hangars were bent a lot... I actually gained a bit of lift due to these correcting the geometry from the OEM bent hangars :bananadance:

    You have some balls! I would never let something that heavy near my instrument panel or head unit. I’m just that unlucky fella that as soon as I try something like that my daughter would jump out of nowhere, scare the crap out of me and the next thing I know I have a pipe wrench sitting inside the ridiculously overpriced Toyota head unit or it would be inside my instrument cluster.
