    What have you broken/replaced on your overweight Tacoma?

    my xB has 195,000 miles. I've replaced the transmission and clutch, I've replaced the wheel bearings on all 4 corners. I'm replacing the lower control arms (for the balljoints) and engine mounts soon. I've replaced the door lock solenoids too. Beside changing motor oil, filters, and...

    What have you broken/replaced on your overweight Tacoma?

    That's fair and I didn't take any offense. The 4000 mile reference was actually a recent trip to that area of Utah, Colorado, and Arizona. ;) So a few hundred for you ends up being a few thousand for me. But my truck is a 2012, and I've got <50k miles on it. 15-20k maintenance comes once...

    What have you broken/replaced on your overweight Tacoma?

    Perhaps, but I can't tell if my balljoints or spherical bearings have play unless they're unloaded. I change all the transmission, differential, and transfercase oil at my 15-20k service interval. During that time it simply makes sense to remove the wheels and unbolt my upper control arms to...

    What have you broken/replaced on your overweight Tacoma?

    A lot of people simply never do their own work on the truck. I have my truck up on stands like every 15-20k. It's a good opportunity to just spend 30 minutes greasing zerks and checking out wear items. If there's play in a joint or cracks in a boot, replace it.

    What have you broken/replaced on your overweight Tacoma?

    I'm at 6060lbs. About 20k (48k and change right now) w/ the Habitat on top. But I need to sell it because I'll be doing a slew of upgrades which will take at least a year. Update to Heavy Duty Deaver Pack (it's a custom request leafpack) Boxing the frame + tubular crossbrace New Shackle...

    Hi folks, I'm selling my Tacoma Habitat based in San Jose, CA. It's the first generation model before Adventure Trailers changed to the solid side construction. It can be mounted on any Tacoma from 1995-present. I have the mountain hardware for rail mounting or through the bed mounting which...

    Have you heard of Motor Trend? Have you heard of Jason Cammisa?

    Farewall Land Cruiser?

    I think things got even worse when they moved to Texas. They're simply uninterested in growing the business in a direction that coincides with their biggest supporters.

    Farewall Land Cruiser?

    Yeah, I just really hate the idea of the Lexus LX570. It's less capable and it gets hung up on stuff. Like my Tacoma, I would want to be able to go through some trails for a few years first and simply enjoy the vehicle as is before I start tearing things apart and slapping armor on there...

    Has everyone seen this already? This spells doom for the US market.

    yeah, it's a huge problem. when you're trying to show it off in a parking lot when you back into a spot and can't open it because trees, light poles, other vehicles, etc are in the way. you end up looking like an idiot and a loser.

    A lot of problems can be solved by waving stacks of cash around while wearing a monocle 🧐
