    Kept it back and away as I dropped a few trees. Only took a pic to see if a buddy with a sawmill wanted the trunks and noticed my20240609_125102.jpg truck in the background.

    I’ve been looking at some sway bar disconnect option but the cost is very prohibitive for me, these make it most more reasonable. Did you like using them?

    That was the same boat I was in, I don't wheel hard enough to remove mine fully and Apex's fancier kit was a bit on the pricier side (well for something I don't need anyways LOL).

    They're super easy to use, the valve stem caps they include have a protrusion on the end like a nipple, so just remove the valve stem cap, flip it 180 and push it into the schrader valve to release the air. The truck could honestly could be driven with them at 0psi if you don't care about the body roll, but I like having the option. Honestly the biggest "pain" is just reaching up under there to pump them back up with the small hand pump, but I'm really reaching here. If you turn your wheels, you can access them quite a lot better. It's not like the front is going to flex like crazy with them, but you can definitely feel the front being less stiff off-road and wanting to articulate more. It's a very nice OEM+ option in my opinion and worth the small pain of climbing under there if you want to retain factory road manners and get some disconnect benefits off-road.

    Did a drain and fill on my transmission, only got 1.25 quarts to come out so lot of effort (dropping my skids) to change like 10% of the fluid

    Awesome, thank you! I’m in the same spot you are with not wheeling it hard enough or often enough to just disconnect it. The Tacoma is my daily driver on a 50 mile round trip commute for work. The last time I took the Tacoma off road I was shocked at how little travel it had and that I got quite a bit of time on 3 wheels. Also I liked the install video.

    Side note, how do you like the ICON tools? I use them at work and they keep up with the tool truck tools and I haven’t had any issues but nobody I know uses them because they come from HF.

    Got ahold of some 285/70/r17 Wildpeak AT3s about 8mm of tread left with 5 rims (-12 offset) off marketplace for $400. Made it to discount tire before they closed to get them balanced and didn’t charge me anything! Slapped them on immediately to check for rubbing. Very big upgrade from the stock OEM 16s and 245s. Also blacked out the badges.

    Thank you! And honestly I love them for hand tools, I mean I wrench a few times a week so it's not like I'm beating the snot out of them daily. But for me they work great and are a good value between quality and price! I'm not surprised they hold up to daily use, they're almost identical to anything the tool truck brands make.

    Yep that’s what I’ve found, working on planes can test these hand tools and I haven’t broken any yet. Just picked up a set to put in my truck now that I trust them a little more and would be way less upset than losing a snap on tool.

    Because I didn't want it to break and be up shits creek. I'm used to regular metal filters. Where the whole thing is replaceable.

    Finally changed the original OEM battery to one from Costco after 5 years 108k miles. It was still running but I felt like better to do it now than wait any longer
