    Best winter tank since christmas, 20.8! Stoked, considering how hard I beat on it the first 100 miles of that tank. Didn't know 3rd gear went that fast. My Honda would have redlined 4th before the end of the Taco 3rd. Guess I gotta pay attention more next time if the foot is in the carburetor if I don't want a ticket.

    Gave a good wash so when the dealer gives me a radio that doesn't have a ghost in the machine they won't get rookie stripes.

    Installed new CV axles, kind of messed up the sway bar end links. I had to remove them to get the old axle out and the new ones in and messed up the seal around the ball joints. Thinking of just taking them off, what do you think? Also, what should i do with the OEM axle's? They are still good, just need to be re-booted.

    Glad you asked about the sway bar. I ditched mine for a weekend off roading trip and never put it back on, I like it better without. Can anyone tell me why I should put it back on? Odd tire wear or other detrimental concerns?

    It's really there to limit body roll in turns and will help prevent you from flipping the truck during emergency avoidance maneuvers

    That being said I don't run a sway bar either a lot of the folks here who are lifted don't run them either.

    It has been worth every penny. Give it a little gas and it feels like your driving a car half its size.

    I installed it myself in my garage over a weekend ~12 hours. It cost me about $100 in materials like coolant and other consumables and I had to buy some tools like a pulley holder to do the work.

    I only had to pay the dealer $100 to reflash the ECU but during that process they discovered some of the software on the ECU was corrupt for an unknown reason that Toyota Tech Corporate couldn't figure out so they replaced it under my 36K warranty.

    I did that a couple of weeks ago. I'm getting ready to do my HVAC controls this weekend. I will try to do a write-up and post it on Sunday when I have it finished.
