    Threw my steel wheels on the auto repair shops scrap pile. Lug nuts too. I live in a apartment and I darn sure was not going to haul them around in my truck bed. Or bother listing them on ebay. Tires went back on the truck.

    Not what iv done but what it's done to me.

    Scared the shit out of me. Was driving down the highway 75 ish 80 not breaking any speed records. Heard a loud ass noise so naturally I pulled over to the shoulder to see what's up. Turns out the plastic thing that goes over the groove for a roof rack came undone and I guess slapped the top of roof. About 2/3 of it came up so lucky it didnt fall off. Now to fix it :l

    I see you still don't have a tonneau cover yet. Buddy dropped his 6' OEM tonneau down to $275 and still has it. Guess it is just the part of the country we live in.

    Today I gave it a much needed bath. Not today, but over the last week, I added my TAC Predator bull bar and Xprite light bar. I have an extension cable that shows it was delivered today, so I should have the light bar working by the end of the weekend.

    Today I gave up the hopes and dreams of mounting a Rooftop Tent on my bed rack. Picked up a Military Mobiflex Tent. I know it looks like a big bag of shit, but once the weather clears out, I’ll get it set up to see what we are working with.

    For the most part this is what we got going on without the rain fly on.

    More to follow, when I get more hands on with it.

    I know zip about tents. That might be the best tent out there, is just looks... different.

    (My idea of roughing it is a Holiday Inn.)

    Use the wheel and tire marketplace thread on here. You might have better luck not dealing with complete randos off CL. Someone will want them!

    Debadged, Leveled, Leather Int, TRD Pro Grill & Wheels w/Nitto G2's, A.R.E. Z-Series shell
    Today was all about fabricating a new fixture that would hold our Calfee tandem upright with the front & rear wheels removed so it could be carried inside the now covered bed of the Tacoma. Since 2001 we've had a couple of K1500 Suburbans and the 2006 Tundra that could carry our tandems with just the front wheel removed and placed in a fork holder to keep it upright and stable, but the Long Bed Tacoma is also the Narrow Bed Tacoma so the rear wheel now needs to come off as well to get the tandem in the covered bed. I made a similar fixture for my '89 Toyota SR5 X-Cab with it's high-top/rear door Brahma shell, but the A.R.E. shell I bought is a low-profile Z-Series, so I needed a new, low-profile fixture.

    Anyway, I found the materials I needed for my new design last night and I headed out to the garage this afternoon to fabricate the tandem transportation fixture. My materials of choice were a 1" x 4" x 8' piece of oak and a few PVC plumbing fittings that I cobbled into a boom tube cradle. The cradle's base was about the only tricky part since I needed to use two different hole cutters to create a recess and a smaller center hole through a wood block that would hold a PVC plug threaded into another PVC fitting through the wood block; this was how I decided to mate the dissimilar PVC and wood materials together. Once the block of wood was attached to the center support of the fixture, the PVC plug became hidden from view and the other fitting is where a PVC T-connector would attach to the fixture after I shaved-off the top-half of the pipe: instant boom tube cradle!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    After that it was just a matter of attaching the fork mount and two cross supports to the center support so the fixture would stand upright. A wheel holder went on the left-rear half of the cross support which is where the rear wheel of the tandem goes once it's removed. There's a padded piece of material that goes in the cradle and a bungie chord that holds the tandem's boom tube to the boom tube cradle and that's it.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I may replace the bungie with some velcro straps and I need to permanently affix the padding to the boom tube cradle after sorting out the tie-downs. I may also add a second wheel holder for the front wheel just so the tandem is fully self-contained on the fixture. But, other than that, it fixture is done and it works as intended. It takes an extra minute or two to get the tandem out of the truck and ready to ride vs. just rolling it into the Tundra with only the front wheel removed, so not a huge change.

    I added the SOS Offroad Concepts Recovery replacement. I liked the Bullet Proof Fab unit a little better, but the SOS cleared the TRD skid plate better. Not much to it. Thick bent steel, with a large slightly oblong hole for a hard or soft shackle.
