    Craigslist score (pics)

    I found a good deal on a ski/cargo box that I picked up yesterday. Most of the time it will be customized to carry my tools, hilift, extra parts etc etc, and hopefully some skis if we ever get any real snow around here!

    Wheelin Today (pics)

    Went out today with some buddies to flex the new lift out. Went with a 40 and a Sami. The Sami trumped us both as it is a very capable sprung over on 35's and had no problem with the nasty clay like mud we dealt with all day. Had to be winched out once and had a great time. I was highly...

    OME COMPLETE!!! Pics inside...

    Well we finally finished up about 3:00 this morning and I must say it was a real b$%tch. Every single bolt had to be torched til it was orange before we got any movement from them. This includes all spring hangers, ubolts, you name it. We had the luxury of a lift and air tools, but even the...

    Just ordered an OME lift kit, ext. sway bar/brake line question

    After spending a month looking at the baddest Toyotas I ordered the heavy kit from Kurt. Do I need the extended sway bar links or are stock ones fine? Thanks. Also are you guys with these kits using extended brake lines as well or are the stock ones long enough?

    If you didnt have smog laws and weren't worried about 'original' would you desmog?

    I'm at a crossroads with my truck smog wise. I have a new EGR sitting around and was going to fix the j pipe leak but then started thinking about a full desmog. If you didn't have laws in your state and didn't care about keeping it all original would you fully desmog. I've read a bit on it...
