    Hey peeps. I have a toy YODA that hangs from my mirror and says all the quirky lines from S.W. if you push his belly. Great site. I have already acquired a ton of knowledge from here, thank you kindly. This is my second TaKoh. My first was an 02. I have been working on and riding in Yodas since I was a kid. Mostly older FJs. Toughest machines on the road. However, they don't make them like they used to. The QC is still there but the (4 X 4) trucks are more like SUVs it seems. After a few (mild) offroad adventures with my gurl, she needs help. Cracked front grill. Taillights cracked. Storage pockets falling out of the bed. Squeaky leafs. Bald tires. Kid stained seats. Well, she needs some work and a facelift. Can anyone here recommend a few places where a guy can spend some coin and get his ride back up to par? I can do some of my own custom work as well (fabricator). Here is my list: Tires. HID lights (and fogs). Tailights. Seatcovers. Grills (all). And lastly, I have a stock stereo which sounds and works great. But I want to hook up an MP3 player to it without buying those stupid broadcasters. Any ideas? Thanks for your thyme. :D

    EDIT: I just read the leaf-spring thread. Is that because you guys bought your trucks in the U.S.? I used to own a Yamaha Kodiak 450 which I drove into the back of my truck many many times. Weight? Maybe 500lbs. My bed sank an inch or 2? I have never had a problem with my bed bottoming out or my tailgate bending. Tailgate BENDING!?!?!?!

    ^^^^this

    Canadian trucks 2007-present come stock with the 4 leaf pack the American guys need to get the leaf spring TSB to correct .

    I just saw yours is an '07 , you may or not have the 4 leaf pack depending on manufacturing date .

    If you have 3 leafs and an overload , you have the ' TSB ' leaf pack .
