Isn't the Tacoma America's version of the 79 Series?
We're going to do a swingout for it.
Currently it's on the cab's roof rack......not the easiest to deal with especially with a Nitto MT55 tire on it. I think it's about 108 pounds or something.
The spare tire generally stays clean in the rear bed but it's kinda in the way.
That's the issue....it's in the way big time back there....especially with the canopy and how it opens. I don't mind it on the roof....maybe I can come up with a hoist or something...or a slide to get it off. 2 people can get it down easily but it kind of sucks with one person. Would be tough to do if you were in a precarious situation alone or on the side of the road somewhere where you couldn't really just roll it off. I don't run the MT55s any longer....so I should change to the Cooper I'm running...it's at least 20 pounds lighter. Those Nittos are a beast of a tire but those Coopers are like a dream.
I really don't want it on the back.
Our of curiosity what Cooper are you running? I just got a set of S/T Maxx and am looking forward to trying them out.
BTW that canopy is gorgeous!
Discoverer S/T. Great tire....transformed the truck. They did really well off road too. Super happy with them.
spending to save always gets me more than I really need. I just had a container of teak furniture arrive from Indonesia. I needed a couple live edge slabs for a build out and ended up splitting a 40ft container with a friend. Now I have to figure out what to do with it all. Less is more sometimes...
Looking forward to a pic of it mounted on the truck.
I’ll take that teak off your hand
What are you looking for? I kinda had a bit of everything in the container this time. No teak lumber bc you can't import that legally. But got some pretty unique stuff this go around.
You can’t import teak legally?
My dreams of buying a teak farm may be in jeopardy! I have seen 20 acres of 1-5yr old trees for as low as $30k.
Not as lumber from Indonesia. Teak furniture yes. Too much illegal logging has gone on there as its one of the most corrupt countries in the world. You can bring it in as lumber from other countries though. A lot of boat builders in my area...they pay a premium for tight grain grade A teak.
I too have thought of the teak farm as part of retirement. You must be looking in Central America for that price. Nicaragua? Have friends there who have invested and hoping for a big payout in the future.
