nice, I'm going to keep my stock tires if I want to go on longer road trips so I don't have to worry about my good tires. Have you looked around for the tires or thought about going down south to get them?

they're on backorder everywhere i've checked... USA and canada... michelin usa has 200+ of them on back order... sucks...
i'm looking for the AT2 with the lowest load index... looking for the best "one tire does most" type of thing...

i just caved in and got sick of waiting for the michelin AT2, so on my truck now are another set of BFG AT...

yeah... i thot about the TG ones... only issue is, both my wife and i are fairly short... so we need something to step on to get into the truck... i'm prolly gonna get a set, and have checker plate welded on the top, then spray bed liner onto them for grip... but i want a bolt on set... i could just have brackets made up, and then the sliders welded onto those brackets... we'll see... i'm in no rush...

One big thing never spray bedliner onto rock sliders or step bars. Yes it may give you grip but in the summer or even if you are wearing light pants you will really scrape up your legs bad and you can't get it off. Best bet would be to add a different handle so you could pull your self up easier.

You don't want to drop them to low either since you will lose ground clearence and it will be easier to tear them off.

You could still remove them but you would have to cut them off

Just finished having my alarm installed at rise and they ended up hooking me up with a wicked Alumina h4 kit, that should be perfect for ripping down a logging road at light

I'm actually picking up the Clarion CZ500 from Rise. Seems like a good head unit for the price. I don't need anything to fancy since it will get pretty dusty in the summer time.

Hey Reece I'm no Toyota pro but that timing belt doesn't look mint to me and I chatted with Akira about it and he agrees. He also agrees timing belts should be changed by the 80-100k mark. But he is also no Toyota pro this is just common practice. Now if your going to run it for much longer and take a chance I'd find out if it's an interference motor cus if it is and the belt gives way then you will have screwed a whole lot of valves at the very least. If its not an interference motor and you'd like to chance it just keep up to date with BCAA.
Timing chains generally are good for 200k's but not belts.

that toyota timing belt is easily good for 150k... it's a really wide belt... it'll be fine...

toyota timing chains are good for the lifetime of the engine, in most cases...

the 5VZ-FE engine is NOT an interference engine... so if it snaps, it's not a big deal.. ur stranded and you need a tow... worst part is, if the belt snaps, you're almost always in a bad spot, in an area not easily accessible by tow truck...
