:cool:




Have you attempted the soup bowl on the Rubicon?  I'm curious if the modern Taco has enough frame clearance for obstacles like this. 

TREV is right, and this is his pic from last Sept. Frame clearance is definitely an issue. Those are 40s. That hole is huge. The preferred line I take with my 1981 Hilux is more to the left.

A lot will have been changed by the next time I do Soup Bowl this June @ TLCA Rubithon.

Looking good buddy!  :thumbs:  I remember texting you about the picture you posted up about being a Slinky Boi in the back, and you told me I see nothing!  :rofl2: 


Great progress, I wish I was on here more often.  But like your posting, FirstWorldProblems, I am in the middle of saving up to finish my house's exterior.  So, I have not been online much.  Been trying to avoid the internet as much as possible.  Unless for Youtube vids for the how to section of home ownership.   
Miss ya Dean (4THEWKN) & Kyle (KYOTA)!!

4THEWKN~9/17/2006  If it wasn't for you, I'd be driving something other than a Toyota!

Mike,

I have a question with your kit and the 40" tyres....Are you still running the standard Tacoma Hubs?  How are they holding up?
