    It would really be nice if you said what you have done and gave the specifics, like tire brand and size, what did you use for your lift, etc,.

    Painted Grill

    Hello all, Just wanted to share mod I did this past week. I painted my chromed plastic grill gloss black with Krylon. I sanded the grill with 320 grit until the grill had no luster anymore. Then, cleaned with thinner or turpentine and sprayed about 4 coats of krylon. Waited about 10-15 minutes between coats. Came out pretty good. I'm very happy with it. Best to everyone this holiday season[​IMG]

    I seem a tacoma like my black one above and I noticed the rear shocks pointed towards the center of the bed. Does anyone know who you do this? Would you need longer shocks?

    You would need to weld up new mounting points and possibly get new shocks. Not worth it just for looks.

    I think it looks pretty cool and I need new shocks anyway. Would you weld new mounts to the top of the axle?

    Not sure but I would assume so.

    All depends on how you set it up. Unless you're doing alot of wheeling or something I wouldn't think it is Necessary, but here's how it's set up on my 79' ImageUploadedByTaco Forum1387509723.369881.jpg the mounting point for the bottom isn't welded directly to the axle, but is on a bracket connected to the axle. So if you wanted to do it yes you would have to make new mounting points

    Has anyone here put a powertrax no slip locker in their 1st gen? I'm wondering if its really that easy to install like the place says they are. I can't find any kind of instructions anywhere. Thanks for any help.
