    Got my truck all back together and took it for a test ride. And most, is all right in the world again. It's sitting around 1"higher in the back and a little bit firmer. I added a modified OME add a leaf to my dever j59 pack. I think it brought the j59 back up to were it was,when I first installed it . Gonna add some weight tomorrow and see how it feels. So far I'm pretty happy with it but I really need longer shocks relocated. I have crap for down travel on my passenger side.

    Add a leaf is the top pack.

    I did but as usual it got co-opted into another project. It's powering a carbureted LS... yeah. Sounds like a waste of an EFI computer until I mention that it's carbureted and at 5psi of boost it kicks on 8 injectors spraying pure methanol at each port. Anyway that thing is a nightmare and other than wiring, not my build.

    Yeah, only thing would be learning Haltech's software, I'm pretty used to TunerStudio for SpeedyEFI (Spokane based speeduino ECU maker) and MegaSquirt. But shit what's one more tuning platform to learn. Nistune, TunerStudio, WinKFP, Hondata, AEMTuner, my brain has room for one more I think. LinkECU, MoTec, and Haltech are the only ones I haven't had to use before.

    eh it can't be that different. Like anything, it does the same thing just slight differences in the GUI and UI. I'd imagine you'll be fine.

    I’m pretty sure he makes these complete harness in house custom for each ECU by the year when an order comes in because of the multiple ECU that Toyota used.
    He asked me to send him a photo of my ECU pin connector and a picture of my harness connector too,
    To make sure everything is 100 percent correct,
    He can install two maps if one wants with a switch to toggle between them too,
    If let’s say you wanted a setup for All power with 100 octane gas with aggressive timing OR a 14.8 afr tune earth friendly,
    So much flexibility

    Gabe also said he can do the final Street tune remotely for the haltech.
    He knows these Toyota setups inside out.

    That’s a huge plus just by its self for me to have someone tell me how to fix a problem if it comes up.

    My buddy got the fic6 installed and it took forever to get it tuned because there is ZERO support Specific for the 3.4 motor

    Exposed the cancer on my RH RR Upper shock mount. I know most people would say cut it out and replace with new, but I plan to add new plates and keep it. The top portion is still fine, and I like cutting and welding, so... I did put in new LH and RH uppers on my other truck. but I'm going to patch this one.

    It's rusted all the way through along the red line.
