      For the extent of what I use it for, heading down winter roads in pursuit of snowshoeing trails and fire roads to go hiking with the dog, great. Tore the stock resin bumper off while crossing a semi frozen creek and decided to replace it with the ARB and at the same time installed OME coils and springs.

      Peace of mind and some added ability

      I am about to rebuild the front susp and rear suspension. I was going to go w OME shock or bilsteins and OME springs. Do you guys know of a good site to get all the BJ, ties rods, axles, bearing, and gaskets/? Also, have any of you rebuilt a sr5 5 speed v6 2nd gen 4 runner? anything I should upgrade while i'm rippin it all off? Who makes best TC and diff fluids? Truck has 200K any advice would be much appreciated.

      TRDPARTS4U.COM Would literally be a one stop shop for you. I just got my OME kit for my 2nd gen there for way cheaper than anywhere else. Definitely get the OME torsion bars for the front and new bolts/ nuts.

      The 5 speed is very strong, especially compared to the auto counterpart. Bilsteins + OME springs. That would be tits, and nobody regrets tits. Best gear oil (TC and diff) is Royal Purple, followed by Amsoil.

      Finally made something work out and now I can post in here!

      Running boards are coming off tomorrow along with a bunch of little stuff to do. So stoked that this worked out.

      Just picked up the SQ yesterday, '05 LTD 4WD. Fixed the rear window, ditched the running boards and added the rack on day 1. I will keep this one mild but it should fill the family camping and hauling duties nicely.

      Saw this at a school fair for my 8 year old yesterday. There was a Weimaraner chilling in the front passenger seat for maybe 2 hours.

      guess it was built by "BentUp Fab" out of california, I have a buddy that has wheeled with the owner of the taco, says it is a great well built rig, owner takes care of his stuff.

      Here is some of the details on the build

      2003 Toyota Tacoma sr5 92k miles
      3.4 supercharged, auto
      37" km2 on steelies
      Built waggy d44 chromo, 4.88, arb, hydro assist
      Built toy e locker, 4.88
      Skids, bumpers

      Owner is asking 17.5k - needs the timing done. What do you guys here think?

      Cool color I also have never seen that color on a toyota, reminds me of the

      pistachio green from the mkIII vw's.

      that is Surf Green (even says so in the image tag)

      The Toyota color is called Green Opal Pearl Metallic.

      Pistachio green was one of the colors used on Harlequin Golfs

      Here's one from a recent trip down to TSF for a night run. Fun time. Seems like there's a lot to explore down there.

      Question for you about the FJ Cruiser; I used to valet part time when those came out and had the chance to park a few. To me the outward visibility was severely impaired by the A pillar and the C pillar; enough for me to question their actual capability off road. Having driven multiple Land Rovers and Jeeps, the FJ to me seemed to me to be kind of sketchy in terms of pinpointing the corners and edges of the vehicle. Maybe it just takes time to get used to, but I'm curious what the owner of one thinks.

      Thanks in advance!
