I put some 31s on 2 weeks ago and have now ran 3 tanks through it. Apparently it doesn't matter if it's turning 31s I can tote with 1 hand or 33s that are heavy as lead. It still gets about 16-17mpg. 200 mile trip to dans the other day yielded same result. Also the windshield has developed a leak. Driving in a good rain on the way to his place water somehow dripped directly into the ecu causing it to take a dump about 85 miles from home. Talk about a strange thing to do at a gas station. I pulled the maf, cleaned it. Pulled the fuel return, it was happy. Decided the problem was in the ecu. Removed it, went to the restroom, dried it with a paper towel and put it back in the truck. Ran a like a new one again. I must remove the windshield gasket and clean it  soon.

No real updates of importance. Put some brake pads on the front about 2 weeks ago. Also put on the little sissy tires to see how the fuel mileage was affected. Complete waste of time. Still gets about 16-17. Yesterday headed to my grandmaws I took an old dirt road I used to spend some time on.

Spent most of yesterday morning helping a friend with a locker install and knuckle rebuild on his 94 sas truck we built a few years back. After that went to gordons where we put the new 3rz head on the tacoma. It went fairly smooth. Today we tied up all the little things lIke intake, pulleys and valve cover. Runs great with the exception of the horrible valve rattle. They were supposed to come Shimmed properly. I'm quite pissed about it, guess we will tear it back down next weekend to measure for shims.

Yep. Can't get any better. Tried running only 65 on the interstatethat didn't change it either. Only fault codes I get are for shift failures due to running an auto ecm. My 98 tacoma has never done better that 17 either.

Finally got around to puting the jl 6.5s in the doors this evening. Going to use the trim pieces between the doors and rear of cab along with door panels off my 81 to make template's from. Then put either 6x9s or 6.5s in the rear panels to leave room behind seats for storage. Also goin to run the bench seat from the 2nd gen parts truck. Having it re covered to match truck. Not sure if I want vinyl or cloth. Will burn that bridge later.

Tailgate has arrived. Didn't open box yet, just saw it was on the porch. Gonna strip it to bare metal, prime it and start sanding.

What a let down. Opened the box, it wasn't the tailgate. It was the grill I a ordered for the 06 double cab.

Opened the tailgate when it arrived today. Not terribly disappointed due to the fact that I can't find one. It has a few dents that can be fixed. The downfall is all these darn bolts the guy ran through it. I'll have to weld them up real cold so it won't warp.

Grenaded something in the trans friday night going to retrieve a bunch of 4wheelers that were told they couldn't ride home on the road. Luckily my buddy has a spare w56 for cheap. Gonna grab it and poke it in soon.

Went to Frank's and got the trans. It's a forward shift so that won't help any. On the look for a top shift

Ok so the w56 forward shift is still hanging oUT I haven't taken it back to my friends house yet. However another friend had a w56b he let me get for $100. While there I saw 2 pair of ramps like the car lots use to display cars. I asked if he would part with a set he said sure hours $100 sound. I told him it take em. Got them home last night. This evening unloaded them and used the tractor to put the disabled toyota up on them. Perfect hight to sit on a rolling shop seat. Unfortunately only got the shifters, exhaust, drive shaft, and rcase/cross member out tonight. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the trans put and pop a rear main in it (weather permitting).

Sorry, that looks a little sketchy, like a hard push from the side would send it crashing down.  Don't end up in the news...

Car lots been using them for years. They have some small square tubing thst ties them togethere that it isn't in the picture. I shoved the truck as hard as I could and it didn't move at all.

Short of for some reason  ??? someone deliberately trying to push the truck off of them I don't see them as being sketchy.

When I put the truck on with the tractor I pulled it sideways about 4" on them to get centered. The truck slid across them rather than the ramps wanting to tilt or tip over. Seems good to me. They are tied together with tubing as well as the 2" ratchets holding the truck to the ramps.

Did regard the bellhousing I won't be using. Trans is clean. Will get seal tomorrow and do the rear main and maybe try to poke the trans in. Called today and got marlins shifter seat and new boots for the trans and tcase shifters.

Those Marlin seats are so worth the money. Makes the trans feel so crisp.

A friend helped me set the trans down so I got froggy and jumped into it. I believe it's salvageable with that gear set replaced.
