LOL.  I hope Sasquatch is a teetotaler.  Have you or anyone you know up there seen Sasquatch or what you might suspect are signs of Sasquatch?  What is your review of your All-Pro bumper?  Anything you don't like or wish was different?  All-Pro has a free shipping special on armor and I am looking at bumpers out there.

Cant confirm or deny anything about the sasquatch. But I can say I really like my bumper, everything bolted up nice and im happy with the fitment. These bumpers are made to order so I have heard of some people waiting while, but I had mine in 3 weeks witch I was quite happy with

Its been awhile since I have made a post, but thats mainly because I was way to busy between school and work. But school is done and I have come catching up to do.
I had my motor start knocking back in may, I ran it for a few weeks till I found a day to swap it out 





More to come, mainly some snow wheeling pictures  :thumbs:

I love this truck. probably one of my favorites...I like how it's not super polished like some of the other rigs, but it's not super ratty like mine. looks capable and has a sweet stance.
Keep it TOYOTA!

In the past years, I used to get a lot of calls from Jeep owners wanting to go slow like the Toy trucks.

Thanks guys! You may be able to tell but I'm not that into painting, even tho I may be giving it a fresh coat soon as it is getting a bit ratty from every day abuse

Well finally got around to fixing all the old photos, its also been awhile since I've posted. The truck is still treating me good, its been my daily and weekend wheeler but the body is falling apart so I may have to do something about that before winter

How has the AP front bumper held up to heavy pulls and rocks? Satisfied with the purchase or would you go a different route?

Well I cant say much about rocks as our trails aren't that rocky, but I have smashed up against a few trees and used it in some pretty heavy pulls and it's still straight as can be. I am thinking about running something a little lighter for winter but I may just leave it as it works so well

I've been having issues with the motor I installed last spring, it's rattling just as bad as my last one and has been really down on power the past few times out. I have a parts truck with a running motor I plan to freshen up, so while I wait for parts I'll be doing a bit of body work on it

I honestly loved them, pretty smooth and quite for a mud terrain tire and they balanced really well before I went beadlocks. On dirt and mud they hook up good and seem to clear out most muds, just hard pack ice there wasn't much traction. Thats the main reason why I grooved them. There is also about 15 thousand miles on them and they where just starting to show a bit of wear

Well my rust repair turned into a rocker delete but I'm liking it, with some sliders it should look good

Going to be making big power out of this 22re now  :shades: cs130 alt, dual batts and big 3 upgrade. I had to redo my intake, it got a little tricky as I wanted to keep my snorkel thing but I think it will do

So I guess it's no longer the red raisin, not sure what I'm going to call it now but that doesn't matter. I like it

Sweet! Kind of the color of the tailgate? I dig it. The rocker rust repair came out really nice, reminds me of when guys cut the rocker out entirely and replace them with thick walled square tube to act as rockers and sliders. Are you going to paint your tcases? I'm a sucker for that color of blue

It's similar to the factory grey but a little darker, I had half a tub left over from a 4runner I owned and painted last spring. I'm am building sliders but they will be separate from the cab to allow for movement. As for the tcase its staying blue, honestly if I didn't have the leftover grey I probably would have gone with that blue  :thumbs:

Big 3 refers to upgrading the 3 main positive wires. alt to fuse block, fuse block to batt and batt to starter, just allows for more current flow under high draw situations

That thing looks cherry now. You gonna tint the windows? I feel like you can make a truck look real good with matching color panels and some tint

I might get the rear done but its unlikely, its actually illegal here in BC to have any tint on the front windows/front doors, well I guess tint thats not factory
