    UC's Largest DD

    We are doing a domestic private adoption. My wife wants as close to a new born as possible, that way we can experience all the "firsts" also knowing how critical those early stages are in childhood development we want to be able to give our kid the best shot. DSS seems like a mess, and it...

    My wife and I are going through the adoption process. We just did our home study and we are just waiting now. Are you planning on doing a private adoption or going through DSS?

    What Do You Do? 2013

    I hate to admit I'm a dud as far as going to events. The Army Reserves loves to have drill weekends the same time that we plan events. Or to send me to exotic locations like Augusta, Michigan or Fort Chaffee, Arkansas or Ft Knox, KY or coming soon this summer Ft Hunter Liggett, CA. If its not...

    What did you do with your truck this week?

    Installed some cheap-o LEDs on the Tacoma. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KBQWR5Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc= Thought this is awesome! For $50 I got me some killer headlights. However now when I turn on my new lights my radio goes all to static :bang: The manufacturer is a...

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    If it is a 1996-2000 4runner or a 1995-2003 Tacoma 4x4 or Pre-Runner it should be the same according the the dealer parts page online. p.s. jimbo how did those 35"s BFG ATs I sold you work?

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    Should be, any 4wd or Pre-Runner 1996-2000 4runner or 1995.5-2003 Tacoma should have the same passenger side knuckle from what I see on the dealer parts page online.

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    I agree with you Marshall. I wish my truck wasn't a daily driver so I could set it aside while I gathered parts and waited for a day where I had time. This is a band-aid fix and will only last for so long and under tame street driving. I looked at a new knuckle approx $330, new wheel bearings...

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    Took the day off from work and got my truck back on the safe side of things. I had probably the hardest and most unorthodox extraction I've had in a while. I remember why I only had 3 bolts in there to begin with, I had broken off an extractor in there a while back. I tried beating, banging...

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    Figured out why my steering is messed up. Broke 2 bolts on my passenger side lower ball joint (I already snapped one before hand replacing the ball joint, the second one gave way on the trip). It is supposed to be flush and is bent in now. It is a minor miracle that the other two didn't snap...

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    Big thanks to everyone who helped me out while I was up there whether it was advice, a bit of chili or bratwurst, or some juice for my phone which died on me. Lets me know I joined the right club. Pinstriping and dragging my rear diff over a couple of the rocks just adds character and memories...

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    I had a great time as well. Great to get out camping finally. My old Tacoma held up pretty good, had an air bag light on for the last 3 months and banging down the trail some how managed to turn the light off. However my steering is a bit off now. This is what my new straight is. Doesn't pull...

    35's without hacking sheet metal?

    I got my 1998 Reg Cab 6 years ago and I wanted to run 35" tires. No specific reason just had that number in mind and wanted my truck to have them. My El Cheapo method involved a 2.5" spacer/shackle lift and a 3" body lift. Then came the tires. My first problem was 35x12.50R15 tires with stock...

    Black Balsam 2014 October 24-26th

    I'm planning on going. Going to be solo wife swears not to go cold weather camping again especially after the country fried weekend last January. Just got my little buddy heater last week so hopefully things will fare better this time.

    If we still need a Treasurer I might volunteer if I can get someone to bring me up to speed.

    Annual Meeting 2014 - Paris Mountain - Sept 27

    Great to see everyone again great job putting on the event. I sure can't complain about the raffle either (maybe I should have bought a lotto ticket on the way home?) Looking forward to Black Balsam in October (just ordered my Little Buddy heater so I don't have a repeat of the Country Fried...

    What did you do with your truck this week?

    Last weekend going down to drill in Ft. Jackson my alternator started to go on me (lights going dim then bright and back). I looked for a replacement and upgrade and found a 200A one on e-bay for around $200 with shipping. Looking back I should have put more thought into it. Having 200A...

    What did you do with your truck this week?

    New Bilstien 5100 shocks and struts for the Tacoma (from TOYTEC). Ditched the spacer lift in the front, with the adjustable struts it rides higher than with the hockey pucks (and softer as well). New electric fan controller (Hayden Automotive 3654 Adjustable Thermostatic Fan Control) for my...
