    It made mine feel completely the same. But I felt good inside knowing the guys on the forum would approve of my choice.

    Pulled and sold the box from the dc. I’ve got some welding ahead of me. The frame needs to be repaired, and I have a rebco box to fit up to this girl. Plus tub the firewall.

    I'd still offer that help but I don't know if you saw; I had to make a claim with Amazon since my OTC ball joint press/removal kit never arrived even though it was "delivered"

    The proper term is breakaway torque but nut busting is cool

    LOL... their words not mine.

    And even if the thing only has half the advertised power, it should be an f'n game changer around my garage.

    Nice!! How thick is the metal and hows the quality? I've been wanting to get one of those and a new fuel tank, my tank is so smashed up it only holds like 10 gallons of fuel.

    I figure if that wont break it loose, next option is an angle grinder... lol

    I have a corded angle grinder, but now that I'm switching to Milwaukee cordless...

    This is on my shopping list.

    You wont.
    And this. If anything it felt a little more clunky than the pennzoil I was running. Pennzoil makes a gl4 manual trans fluid that is approved to work with the Chrysler ax15 trans, which is the same aisin 5spd that's in the Tacoma. I'll probibly switch back to that at the next fluid change and save some $$$.
