    I've contacted TLCA about any information on FL Activity and getting in touch with those associated with FLCA, but received no response.

    FLCA Question

    Who is Luis? I don't think I know him, but I'd like to get in touch with him if he was/is related to FLCA. The low attendance numbers are surprising, Appalachian Toyota Roundup has a lot of FL attendees so far. I think there's plenty of interest in the Toyota community, there are a lot of...

    FLCA Question

    Who owns/runs FLCA? Is this an active group anymore? Looking at TLCA chapter listing, there is currently no FL chapter. Few of us cruiser heads south of I4 are looking at starting a club and seeking TLCA recognition, just wondering what's become of FLCA, and who's carrying that torch. I'd...

    First review of the new MetalTech Red Eye II Swingout bumper.

    Yep. It bolts on just like the OEM hitch does. I have it on because I tow an M416 with it. The departure angle of the bumper is quite good actually, especially if you omit the hitch. Not much lower than the frame crossmember.

    First review of the new MetalTech Red Eye II Swingout bumper.

    Nope. It was like a 1 page thread looking for ideas. Halfway through the page a guy posted this idea, and a few posts about it. Seemed like a good solution. Attached blueprint drafted up by me to convey the gist of the mod. The orange lines represent the new beams. They would mount into the...

    Help me find a M416 thread please...

    No, that's not it. The poster use new bars of I want to say 59 inches, mounted at them in just about the same fashion as the original ones, just spread out a little bit more. That gave him a good overall extension while still being able to use the original lunette Sent from my iPhone

    Help me find a M416 thread please...

    A while ago I saw a thread on here about a guy who extended the lunette on his trailer by welding in longer tongue you channels. He removed the old ones, welded in new ones close to the existing locations. The fact that the bars were further apart where it mounts to the frame allowed for longer...

    Oh right on. The stuff we (I) get into doesn't require O2 masks (yet). Though our local P51 guys are buying O2 masks now...
