Sounds like you'll be just fine! If something else comes up Troy and I are about to go work on his rig but I'll check back every hour or so.

I forgot to post up but I did get the 5100's on the front and it took just under 3 hours. I used this spring compressor and it worked just fine.

Before.

Its been about 2 years since the last post on this sticky, but i wanted to see if the house of wrenching was still up and running. Im looking at getting some rear suspension for my 03' Taco just to start with much more planned and would love a place to do some wrenching with some help and also because i dont have any tools out here (just moved here June from AZ/SD).

If something will be a one-day job, I'll offer up tools/stuff at my little shop; I'm trying to have an open bay sometime this month for fast stuff. No more year (or longer) projects in this place; daddy needs a bigger shop.

Sundays only, unless I win Powerball and quit working. :D

Is this still going on? I have an 07 V8 Runner that needs a new timing belt with all wear items replaced and basically a full fluid swap/tune up. I'd like to do it myself but I just moved to the Denver area and don't have anywhere to do the work.

I'm sure someone will be willing to help you.

The problem may come in where to do it. I would offer my place,but my garage is in use and will be for some time.

Oh man, I miss the HOW. The House of Wrenching. We have been in Houston now for 4 years and have not done any wheeling, But the bug is coming back. I just got Troy's truck running again, and I am replacing the ARB comoressor. Need to figure out the emissions tho. Anyway I look at that list of tools and chuckle, as we have trippled what we have.

I miss you CoTTORA guys. But have no fear. I think Tippy is coming back to roost! :D

So True Jeremy! We are gonna try and get serious about fixing Tippy to send back to Colorado. Probably part Ron out since he wont pass inspections, and why dump more $$ into fixing that when his 3slow has 260k on it. Plus troy wants a desert long travel truck to play in down here...
