    I'm planning to meet you guys in the morning, and tag along for the first hour or so. Don't know how much time I will have yet...

    Sunday 11/10 Eagle Inn in Prairie Du Sac. Time wise I forgot what we settled on.. early enough for breakfast before exploring.

    James, were you able to access maps? I've been slammed and haven't had a chance to really look anything up.. I just know where the old ammo plant is.

    I haven't really looked at it much. If I recall, someone replied that was familiar with the area.

    If anyone is able to put together a route for Sunday, starting in Prairie Du Sac, hitting the old ammo plant and some cool back-roads down by the river, let us know.

    Otherwise, I'll take another look at the video and see what I can figure out.

    A little off topic here but does anyone know of a shop in the WISCONSIN area that they would trust to apply fluid film to their trucks. Seems like the local paint shops near me in central Wisconsin have no clue what I’m talking about.

    I think most people just do it themselves or hit up a mod day when a bunch of guys are doing it

    personally I’ve never done it but I’ve thought about it

    I'm not aware of any. As @Shellshock mentioned, most guys seem to do this themselves. I won't do it. My last 4runner was 14 years old with 257k, never garaged, and the frame was rock solid.

    Obviously, the Tacoma frames have been more problematic. If you find a place, let us know how it turns out. I'm sure there's a few people who would be interested.

    Haha! I remember reading a few descriptions of the odor.:rolleyes:

    I used some when I installed my sliders, but I don't really recall the smell. :notsure:

    I did all 3 of my vehicles yesterday, it's not that bad. You need a decent jack, an air compressor, and a spray gun. It's a little messy, but I prefer to do it myself

    i have recently heard the possible reason for this ... wish you had pics of your old 4runner under there!

    but the problem seems to be that the 4runner frame was made and built in Japan
    the Tacoma frame was outsourced to shoddy USA or Mexico that half-assed it with materials

    i am not sure about the Tundra frame, does anybody know?

    can't you just use spray cans with no compressor? that is what i used for the small sections i had to test out on

    there is also a 'similar' product called KROWN (Canadian stuff i think) that maybe a shop might have heard of
    some in MN have a place they goto and a place in my town would do that for $150 (last i checked) including the door jams, tailgate, rocker panels, etc. its not a 'permanent' rubbery undercoating and will wash off like FF they had told me

    I'd be game to try fluid film. Or should I wait till the end of the frame replacement thing and sneak in quick.

    As for air compressors what are people using? I've looked at both the viair88p and the one a bit smaller. People have used both they claim. Running bfg KO2 265/75/r16

    Hopefully keeping it under $75 unless I get a super good reason to upgrade. Also wouldn't mind it small/compact. If I'm correct one fits in the bed cubby?? Do tell.

    I use an arb twin portable and it’s awesome but that’s far more than $75.

    I used the viair 400p automatic for a couple years and it was pretty nice. Zero complaints there. Once you get to the the lower end the duty cycle and cfms really suffer so it takes forever to air up
