    I may still have the messages. But that's the only reason I went shrockworks. Could've save a couple hundred bucks with 4xinn.


    Though that was a couple years ago, they asked if i would bring my truck in for the mounts IMG_20171106_075104_331.jpg

    Funny you ask, I bought the same wheels to fit the Tundra brakes under it. I have the same setup on my truck with the 13WL calipers. I'm using bigger than stock (on 3rd gens) LT265/75R16 BFG KO2 tires and there IS rubbing at absolute full lock, but I have to live with it. I tired 1.25 and 1.75 wheel spacers but that made the rubbing even worse hitting the frame and wheel liners. That being said I didn't need to use any wheel spacers for the calipers to clear.

    It depends on what tires you run but I know for a fact BFG KO2 LT265/75R16 rub at full lock. The wheels look GREAT on first gens, even better than 3rd gens where they came stock on.

    Speaking of my truck they severely underestimated how long a new flexplate would take to arrive. I'm looking at it being ready Thursday next week :facepalm:

    I hope to god that new torque converter fixes the problem. I literally cannot afford anymore downtime.

    It's a bureaucratic nightmare to get it registered. It sat for a year with a dead battery so all the SMOG monitors are obviously unready. To transfer the title into my name I have to get it smogged, I would automatically fail if I don't get the SMOG monitors ready which requires driving a couple hundred miles. I already transferred liability into my name.

    Now tell me, how the hell am I supposed to drive a car that's un-registred, uninsured, with liability in my name if I crash or some crashes into me? o_O

    I'm currently in limbo with that car. Sometimes I hate living in California.

    Wish it was that easy. Says on their website "California does not issue temporary license plates." Doug DeMuro of Autotrader actually did an article of how stupid and difficult California's temporary license plate process is.

    The CA DMV offers:
    • Vehicle Moving Permit
    • Temporary Operating Permit (TOP)
    • One Trip Permit
    • Nonresident Commercial Trip Permit
    The first one is what I thought I needed, but it's valid for one day only. I'm going to have to drive like HELL to get it SMOG ready.

    Oh well then, yeah that state is fucked. The whole SMOG thing is too little too late anyway. Love to visit Cali but never living there again, anyway if everyone else plays dirty sounds like you'll have to as well, either drive unlicensed to set the monitors, or find a sketchy smog place. WA has been dismantling it's emissions regulations and checks because it was determined to be a huge waste of money and was stopping nothing haha. In AZ everyone just registers in a county that has no emissions checks. I'd just get the one trip permit if I was you and follow the process for setting each monitor.

    That's the plan, I'm afraid if I drive the car any longer the CEL would come on for a dead hybrid battery.

    The original owner told me he had a CEL for a dead hybrid battery, but I've never gotten it. I don't know why, I don't even know if it's even dead.

    I don't even need the Hybrid, I just want it to pass SMOG. It makes it even more complicated that I got it as a gift.

    Tell me about it. I love how Toyota had to manufacture two variations of the Tacoma: one "FOR CALIFORNIA EMISSIONS" and one for everything else. It says that on tons of FSM diagams.
