yeah, according to my VIN i have a vehicle that simply just doesnt exist. They just keep telling me "well that cant be right". I just dont understand how the dealers can be so wrong on so many things in so many locations in this universe.
It does look scary, but I have done many dirtbike transmissions and you only have to take apart the shaft that has the problem. The other shafts can stay in one peice and just set aside. I am not saying it is easy to get it back together you just need more then two hands to hold things in place.
- Brake MC swap
Secure old reservoir and plug hole,(now used just for clutch)
- limit straps
just bolt onto front side of upper and lower coilover mount bolts
- trim t-case crossmember

Saturday began with a 2 1/2" hr. drive to Avon, IN to see the Bear! The day began by removing the stock driver door of the truck:
Since the striker assembly was already made up, we started by making the hinge plates. Then all we had to do was fill in between!
After filling the tube with wet...
Got a new to me truck that's probably familiar around here so I'm giddy to go out and shake it down..
Need to cut that awful front bumper off and cut some goofy extensions off the rear before it's ready to wheel but it's got all the good stuff. Tacoma width sky's housing, longs, psc hydro...
