    Yeah..... Not getting to retire in my lifetime

    Got a few problems with this.

    1: If it ever goes to production, it'll be limited most likely only to the southern dealer groups.

    2: 21-in rims are going to suck for mounting tires.

    3: the hand bilt turbo 3.4s are excellent. The factory built ones have started their massive blow up process. Tundras are dropping like flies as people are driving them harder now. The design is good, the factory implementation cheaped out somewhere. That investigation is going to cost Toyota hundreds of millions of dollars and I cannot wait for the "we're going to replace your entire engine" recall program...

    I'll probably have to work right until the end at this rate, also. I'm just hoping that I can switch to an easier job sometime in my 60's, like working at a bait shop.

    I wouldn't mind driving that zamboni floor cleaner around Woodman's grocery. That looks like a good job.

    Cold Saturday in the Northlands... 35 and windy. Great day to take a cabless, heaterless 1932 fire truck for a spin...

    No kidding, I pulled the hoist out of the lake just now. I should’ve done it when the water was warmer.

    Got a pair of coil spring compressors (screw type) to try and adjust my front dobinsons, but they don’t quite fit between the coils. Oh well, have a quarter inch trim spacer i got from crickey mike. I’ll install that on the drivers side instead.


    Question…. I noticed one of the top shock bolts is oval-ized a bit. I didn’t think they were loose and never made noise.

    Replace them? Are these supposed to get a ton of torque? It’s impossible to get a good angle on these to tighten.

    Get new ones. They're not super expensive and a short-ish 14 mm wrench shouldn't be too hard to come by.
