    New shoes for my Taco...Need recommendations

    When I bought my current BFG AT KO2's I did not know I was getting E-rated tires. I have been running BFG's for 30 years or so and every pair of the truck tires had been C-rated. Apparently moving from 15" to 16" rims all but eliminates C-rated options (apparently now called SL?). The E-rated...

    ...aka The Family Truckster, aka Clark Griswold) Since I actually bought this thing, figured I'd start my first ever "build" thread. In reality, this will be where I show off my painfully slow and incremental replacement of all its broken bits and its upgrades as I work towards getting this...

    Learn me about the 6.9/7.3 idi motors

    I've narrowed my search for a camping vehicle option down to a full-size truck w/TC. No surprise but costs for anything labelled Cummins or Powerstroke have skyrocketed. That's fine, I like older trucks anyway, right? I had an '88 F150 2WD that I sold to buy my first 4WD, a 1985 Toyota RCLB...

    Seeking information on import-sized Bigfoot and Northern Lite campers

    I've recently discovered, and somewhat fallen in love with, Bigfoot and Northern Lite campers. I have a new 2016 Tacoma that I had hoped to put a FWC on (and may still), but found that both companies made smaller campers a while back- Bigfoot made a 6'10" and Northern Lite a 6'11". Since my...

    Four wheel pop up camper, fits compact trucks - $1500 (lynnwood)- Seattle, WA area

    Potential damage from low oil in a 22RE...?

    Okay, so don't judge me. It's been a very difficult past year for me and I have slacked off on maintenance on my truck. Apparently, I let the last oil change go way too far. Last night after work I checked my oil and it didn't even register! I had to add about 2.5-3 qts. Add to that, that...

    What is this?

    I found the photo below when I was searching for pics of older Hilux double-cab trucks. That is a late model Hilux in the photo below, that much I now. What I don't know, is what that TRD labeled, yellow device with the line and hook is. Anyone know what that is? Rear mounted factory winch?

    ...straight 6? I'm looking at a late 70's Ford E150 "shorty", 2wd, with the straight 6 motor and auto trans. I'm really looking at getting out of my Toyota 4wd since I never use 4wd and switching over to a van for a DD. No need for 4wd now nor in the near future so I'm cool with 2wd. I love...

    Truck needs a new antennae

    The antennae on my Toyota truck (1994) broke under the fender. There is some sort of metal support post below the surface of the fender and it cracked at some point and now the antennae sort of swivels around and leans over sometimes. I was thinking of just replacing with a stock Toyota...
