    First big load with the new truck. Only about an hour drive but averaged around 12mpg with the bed also loaded down with camping gear and 4 people in the cab.



    And when its 98*+ and there are sudden thunderstorms, it's nice to jump in the a/c and watch a movie



    And when you drink too much...

    Decided to get going on the steering rack bushing install this morning to get it over with and because it was not raining (yet). It went pretty smooth, the longest part was getting all the bolts/bushings lined up with the new bushings installed. But it just took some persuasion and everything went back together. I also rotated the tires and checked that all hardware was still tight after the Bilstein 5100 front install.

    After a test drive I could tell the steering was much tighter. Before, I had a pretty decent pull to the right and to correct it when going straight, my steering wheel would be turned slightly left. Now, the steering wheel is straight with much less pull to the right. I obviously need an alignment, but I am trying to hold off until I get my new wheels and tires. Regardless, it was definitely worth the ~$45 and couple hours of work.

    Haven't updated lately... been very busy with work and doing some side fabrication stuff for some friends and other people for extra side cash.

    But, I finally got around to ordering the rear Bilstein 5100 shocks from AJUSA. I am planning on detailing the truck very soon because some gray paint overspray got on everone's vehicle at work . It isn't too bad, but it needs to be clayed and waxed regardless. Also thinking about doing another traction bar on the rear end like my white truck had but in order to do that I think I need to get a smaller muffler (I do not want it any louder than stock) so I will be on the search for a pretty much drop-in, small, quiet muffler.

    Still on the search for wheels and tires also.....

    Purchase Revtek's REV7506 lift kit and get a 4WP Promotional Gift Card for up to $180
    I got the rear 5100's in the mail today and decided to go ahead and throw them on. I must say, Toyota must have designed the rear suspension in the most ridiculous, cramped, and dumbest way possible. Those top nuts on the stem of the shock were a complete pain to get off, which was expected, but they were a little harder than previously thought.

    I ended up having to grind two flat spots on the shock shaft so an adjustable wrench could be put on it to hold it from spinning (be VERY careful when doing this, as that shock could possibly explode when excessive heat is near and not to mention all the brake lines, gas tank/lines, etc). I was going to save the shocks, but you know how that ended up.




    Other than that, it is a pretty straightforward install. I did remove the spare tire to access the driver side shock a little easier. I haven't driven it yet... it's 7:00 and I am ready for bed

    I also highly recommend a 17mm ratchet (I call them writchy-ratchys, there is one in both of my pictures) for the top nut on the 5100's. I used a regular 17mm wrench and I started to get arm and hand cramps.
