Gonna be a while.  Hoping to start on it next winter. Weíll see. Lots of expenses surfacing for me lately setting me behind.

Tow rig got more love. 


Tonight Tacoma got a new tcase mount, finally a solid one.

Looks like a good time! How did the rig do being so low? Looks like you just walked everything  :beerchug:

Really well.  I drag belly all over the place. Iíd like to gain more clearance underneath.   Wonder if thereís a good way for me to carve out my tunnel to gain a few inches. Then this truck would be very very capable.

Some progress on the flatbelly stuff.   Decided not to go completely flat. Driveline angles would have been difficult to deal with





But this is much better



Got a solid start on patching up the interior tonight too.  I wonít show you that because itís like a war zone in there.  :flamer:

But she looks cute

I donít like these switches but it may be only temporary.  But it fit right in one of my extra 12volt outlets Iíve never used. So I cut out the back and glued it in.  Actually turned out not bad.
