    Install How-To: Upper Control Arms, 100/470 Models

    Forgive me for the condition of my truck. Sorry it's dirty. Was out in the woods last week and did nothing more than hose it off after coming back. All that redness is good ole Arkie clay, not rust. Hope it didn't mess up the photos too badly. -----------------------------------------------...

    01 Taco PS Reservoir "Screen/Filter" Cleaning: Help?

    Due to an increasingly-loud whine, I ran my Taco by my trusted mechanic to have a new PS pump tossed on it this morning. He tells me it's not the pump, but the reservoir. Says there's a little fine mesh screen near the delivery line which is designed to filter out sludge, etc, and that over...

    NATO/Scepters in Factory Spare Location?

    I seem to remember seeing a build thread for a metal cage/shelf which held two NATO cans in a truck's spare tire factory location (under truck bed behind bumper). I might be interested in trying this with my Tacoma, but I'm interested in the ensuing pros/cons from that fella's build. I have...
