      I know before I go back to Moab I want at least a rear locker.

      I should have SAS front and LH6 motor by then.

        Good stuff Cale!

        A fellow 3rd gen Tacoma owner and I spent Sunday afternoon down at Broken Arrow Trail in Sedona.

        Both completely stock, except for sliders on my end (which weren't needed), they made it through with only a few hitch drags in steep places.

        Went through a crack off of the side of the trail near the entrance to stretch the trucks legs.

        At the transition point it was impossible to get the trucks alone for even a few seconds. This is a very popular trail with the Pink Jeep Tours, so there are always people around.

        Ended up finishing the trail with the orange jeep in this picture.

          Looks like another beautiful part of the country, I need to extend my trip.

          Don't know much about Taco driveline upgrades, but beyond gears it doesn't seem to be something too many people touch. Definitely possible I just haven't delved deep enough yet.

          Locker was a must for every trail we did, albeit only a handful of times, but there was always at least one obstacle that was a pass/fail scenario for seeing the rest of the trail.

            Hell yeah! I can't wait to make it back out to Moab this September...

            Did some wheeling with spike68 (Tony) this past weekend.

              Bad on me for not checking, but wth Toyota?

              Anyone need a brand new grease gun?

                Sleeping platform with drawers complete. Going to redo the mattress cover, needed to remove more material than expected to keep it snug. Beats an air mattress on the corrugated truck bed floor.

                  Nice man looks great. I had a dream of doing this with my truck but the 3rd gen 6spd access-cab off-road is not available in the US so stuck with the short bed.

                    Picked up this 2008 Tundra SR5 4x4 DC for cheap from my buddies neighbor, got it for 2200 bux! Some catches to it tho, high mileage, dirty as all hell, and owner was told it would need a motor. Well after digging into it, found that the head gasket had failed on both banks, and was pressurizing the coolant system with compression. After talking to a fellow tech here at my shop who was previously a Toyota tech, I was told it would be easier, cheaper, and better to just swap another motor into it, and thats what I did this past week after work

                    Going through it


                    Def a big bitch, had to lift it high to get it out, but not bad


                    Old and new


                    Running and cleaned up, still needs some things, but how she sits at the moment


                    Truck runs great now as expected, drives nice and smooth, def bigger then my Tacoma but not too bad.

                    Im not sure which truck I'm going to keep, If I kept the Tundra I could get out of my payment on my Tacoma, would have a bigger truck for hauling things/give me more options for camping rigs, which I'm in the process of replacing my old one. However it is a bigger truck with high mileage, and will be a little worse on MPG then the Tacoma, but not by much surprisingly.

                    Gonna drive it for a week or two and see how I like it, I had planned on getting this exact truck to eventually replace my Tacoma, just didn't think it would fall into my lap like it did.

                      If I could do all the things I wanted with a full sized
                      , I'd have a tundra in a heartbeat.

                        Exactly.

                        Just hit a local set of trails with a group of buddies, and the most capable truck (by far) had to be left behind at the entrance due solely to its size.

                        That wasn't the first time the most offroad worthy truck couldn't join in on the fun either.
