Not worth it to me to cut the frame to get 2" closer to the grill. You will see it in person this weekend.

I gotcha.

I have been working on the truck and now have the bumper in place and it is not going anywhere! Thanks to Robert, Mitchell and Colin for all the help.



Colin, thanks for the welding lesson; I learned more in 5 min than all of the book reading I have done in the past 6 months!

Nicole, I have my jack painted and I think you will approve. I don't care what people think, I like satin watermelon! More pictures to follow.

Not the truck........silly boy! The backing plate for the fairlead has a ridge at the bottom. I think it may rub when winching. I may just cut that part out and sand it down smooth. I want some coilovers next.

Well the Sissy truck got it's new clutch and it could not be happier!

Not many pictures cause we was working on it.

Great big SHOUT OUT to Duane with Big Jake's! Could not have done it without you big guy!
Good to see Shaun and Spanky while I was there!

This thing just did not want to come out, been in from 98 when the truck was built!

Old only had 166607 miles on it .......does nothing last anymore!?

New

Old pressure plate

New pressure plate


Put in a new flywheel because the old would have cost just as much to have resurfaced SO old

New


Installed is the blue purdy or what?


Just got to get used to the feel now. I only knock it off 2 or 3 times a day now! Laughing

Gripforce, called the 800 number and got a real person (Steve) told him what I was using it for and he suggested that I go with the F1 Stage2 Kevlar and so I did. Nice people and took the time to listen to and answer all my questions.

My 96 Tacoma is about to trip 200k and has the OG clutch in it, but it seens 400+ highway miles a week and the most off road action it gets is my dads driveway...
