    CL campershell = score for me!

    BlackUSK56 - They are hard to come by and this one was only 100 miles from home! I was fortunate - the auto dealer didn't do their research and know what it was worth before posting. PLUS I got to sell my tonneau cover to cover the cost of the new shell. Good luck in your search!

    CL campershell = score for me!

    I found a Leer shell for my '07 Tundra Crewmax on CL for $500 and got the Bedrug Liner for another $100 bill. Probably my best 'deal' I've run across. I got the Model 100XQ Leer, it is carpeted, has 3 cigarette outlets, a clothes hanger thingy, a light and a ceiling storage box. In talking with...

    Cooper tires

    I REALLY like my set of 5 ST Maxx tires. They've been on for 2 yrs now and I have had NO issues, they ride fine, noise level is acceptable and they seem to be wearing well with about 15K miles on them - miles that are comprised of about 80% pavement and 20% gravel roads. Sidewalls are stiff...

    Brakes on my 2002 4WD Highlander...first time

    x2 on the rotor replacement - I'm on my original set with 213K miles on them. Several pads have been replaced though. I've miked them and they're not too thin, yet. Good job on taking on this easy wrenching task of changing brake pads!

    Tall skinnies on 2006 tacoma

    I ran Cooper STs for about 8yrs & 140K miles, with a very similar lift, and never had a rubbing issue, even with mild offroading. I cannot comment on tire chains though - but the Cooper's were severe weather rated, if that helps.

    Can i fit 255/85/16 tires?

    I have that same size tire on my Tacoma with similar lift - works fine for the last 2 sets of tires and 100K miles. No regearing here and my truck still performs fine. The UCA and the tire will move together vertically - so clearance between the two will remain the same - unless you pack a...

    Question about my SAW's

    I dont think that the shock adjustability is what limits your front end lift. If you crank up your C/O shocks too much you'll be sacrificing the CV joints. I ran 255/85/16 for the last 7 yrs with minimum rubbing and only when offroading. Just my .02. Don't go over 3" on the front or your...

    '01 Tacoma dripping front diff breather hose

    Have you considered that driving over the overpass caused a pressure change inside the diff? As your elevation increases the pressure inside the diff could increase. Just a thought.

    I didn't do as you requested but I know axle assemblies are reasonable $$ I put new ones in 18months ago for about $80/each. AND it was an easy job to do. I figured that 150K on the original equipment was good and it is easier to change them in the shop than when they might want to fail on a trip.
