  1. Inexpensive snow plow suspension mod.

    1Gen-Tundra
    The 5100s should work for you. I definatley wouldnt use those spring blocks, they stress the spring in one spot and are just not worth the risk. Nothing about upgrading suspension is cheap, but you have the right idea with the 5100s. Tundras arent the best for hauling a plow around, so I...
  2. Re treads

    1Gen-Tundra
    I dont see them being legal, not that anyone would check. On Commercial vehicles they are only approved for drive tires and never steering tires. I would never chance running them on my DD. I drive truck for a living and have seen plenty of retreads seperate or blowout. I had a retread...
  3. Timing belt kit.

    1Gen-Tundra
    Search volkstoy on ebay. He has all OEM suppliers(wont say Toyota on the package). I just did 2 4Runners within a month with his kit and it was very high quality and complete. I know a lot of people here have used his Tundra kit and liked it.
  4. Wondering why Toyota didn't offer 4x4 option on 3.4l?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Yup that would be great! I really miss driving my taco with the 5 speed. I never understood why they didnt offer a manual with the v8. Toyota trucks have always been more common with manual trannys until the Tundra. WTF?
  5. If you think your rear bearings are going out?

    1Gen-Tundra
    My brother called me the other day and wanted me to meet him because he has a loud screechig/ grinding noise coming from his rearend.(its a 96 4runner, but the same brake setup) This was a week after we worked on his elocker, so he thought it was something real bad and didnt want to drive it...
  6. Front Door Assist Grip Replacement

    1Gen-Tundra
    I did the same thing on my drivers door. I parked at work and it was super windy. I opened my door partway and the wind caught it. I tried to stop it from hitting the truck next to me, and ended up with the handle in my hand and a dent in my buddys truck. My truck was going in for the ball...
  7. Scanguage owners... Coolant temp?

    1Gen-Tundra
    Ive seen 195-200 frequently on real hot days. I saw it up over 200 before, too, but it really didnt bother me since the factory gauge didnt even budge. Sometimes I think the Scangauge can make us more paranoid than we need to be.
  8. for all you guys with that disease

    1Gen-Tundra
    If you could come up with a name for us it would be good. I have black chrome wheels and doing my bumper, mirrors, and grille would really interest me. Thanks
  9. Looking for pics of a ~3" lift with 33s on 18" wheels....

    1Gen-Tundra
    I had a tiny bit of rubbing on the bottom of the front fender flares. I took 1/2" from the inside with a dremel (you cant see the cut unless your head is in the wheelwell). Other than that, once in a while in reverse if I hit a bump just right with the wheel cut it rubs the rear of the inner...

    Haha Yup!

  12. 01' 3.5L v6: Hard Long Start Times, Diagnosis?

    1Gen-Tundra
    I've heard lots of complaints about the 3.4's doing this, and witnessed it once. My brother was having problems like you describe. If he would run into a store quick, sometimes it would start real hard. Others it would be fine, but it always started good first thing in the morning. I helped...

    I was in the non judged field, but I think I might compete next time, just for the heck of it. It was good meeting you though! I was going to stop by so you could check my truck out but you were nowhere to be seen every time I drove by. Congrats on the second place
