    What the hell do you make of this? AutoLSD and Traction control turning themselves on and off respectively with no driver input.

    I figured it was happening because I removed the facrory LSD and replaced it with the E-Locker. Thought the system was just wigging out bc the parts aren't there anymore and it thinks my wheels are spinning out now that it's an open diff when the locker isn't activated.

    What the hell do you make of this? AutoLSD and Traction control turning themselves on and off respectively with no driver input.

    My traction control tries to activate every time I turn a corner now since I swapped gears and added the Harrop locker. I can hear the whine and the light comes on. Did you do a re gear or locker upgrade?

    4.88's or 5.29's for your Tacoma?

    It's the built in speed limiter. The new gearing throws off the system and it thinks you're going faster that you are. A tune option will fix it

    Another M416 trailer

    This one is a $5k trailer. I make them anywhere from $3500 and up. Prices on these trailers to obtain a doner have gone up significantly over the last year. For one that's restorable you're in the 1500 to 2000 just to start

    4th Gen Tacoma Which Trim to buy

    Depends on how deep into modifying the truck you want to go and how important creature comforts are to you. If you dont plan on tearing out and replacing the suspension and like having interior/tech upgrades go for the Pro. If you want to add a suspension upgrade and still want some tech get the...

    I have the Fox 2.5 Performace Elite. Tuned from Acutune. I have zero complaints. Put 50k on an Old Man Emu kit and wore it out. These Fox coil covers made my truck drive hella better. Trails and roads that used to rattle my kidneys dont even register now.

    The fill level on those is about 5mm below the fill hole. If it's running out then theres too much from what I've read.

    Ohio Taco Fan

    Going "wheeling" is midwest slang for off roading. If someone invites you to wheel and camp... bring a tent and plan on washing 100lb of mud off your truck after. Oh and pin stripes will be added as well lol

    Performance 5.29 fuel mileage thread

    Yeah the weight definitely pushed me to the 5.29 as well as potentially going to 35s. If o could drop 500 I would but it's all pretty permanent at this point lol. I'm thinking a different tune is needed. What RPM are you hitting when cruising at 70-80?

    How to fix the rear composite bed squeak

    It's more than likely your springs and/or shackles. My OME Dakar packs were absolutely embarassing. The spring squeak stopped when I put the Deavers on but the shackle itself will still squeak at times. Check your springs and shakles

    Berserker__taco build thread

    It's been 2 years since I updated this. Some things have changed. After 50k miles the Old Man Emu lift had taken a beating and was getting tired. More weight has been added and the Dakar leaf packs were sagging as well so I decided to swap out the whole suspension. I went with Fox 2.5...

    I'd go with the sticker in the door jamb if it matches the psi on the tire sidewall.
  48. Berserker__taco


    Are you asking what pressure you should inflate that tire tire to? Are they P Metric, D, or E rated? What size? Typically you would inflate to spec but if they are 10ply and the sidewall calls for 80lb you'll rattle your kidneys loose at that pressure. I run my 10plys at 35 front and 40 rear...

    Fitting 37” tires on a 3rd Gen Tacoma (with photos)

    That's good to hear. I've been rolling around with the extra weight for a while. It's not absurdly heavy but I'm down to 11mpg now. Looking forward to it not working as hard. Was hoping for a few MPG back but we'll see.

    Fitting 37” tires on a 3rd Gen Tacoma (with photos)

    Your truck definitely validates the 37s. And for sure, if you havent broke anything yet then they really arent as big a deal as some make them out to be. My only concern for my truck is the 8in rear it has with it being an SR model. If it had the 8.75 like yours I'd have bigger tires already bc...

    Fitting 37” tires on a 3rd Gen Tacoma (with photos)

    I've had high Hope's for that Currie. Cant imagine how something like the ABS would kill that. Were you trying to convert it to disk and it wouldnt work or was that with the stock drums transferred over? Glad to hear the Marlin kit is worth it. Been eyeing that for the next change up.

    Front end clunking noise

    Best of luck. It's an ongoing problem people are having with these. No solid answer on what it is and Toyota is yet to acknowledge it as an issue. It's annoying but hasn't appeared to be catastrophic. Keep after it with the dealership and hopefully they'll keep throwing parts at it till they...

    Fitting 37” tires on a 3rd Gen Tacoma (with photos)

    I'd like to one day swap the rear end out for a Currie or Dynatrac. When that happens 37s are for sure going on. When I spoke to ECGS the guy warned me to not use 35s bc the 8in rear fails with larger tires after you add a locker 😑 Price I'm paying for liking stripped down trucks lol

    Pre-Purchase Question Campershell/hardtop or RSI Smartcap?

    There is no way to function these locks from inside. Cant latch or unlatch. I'm not sure if there is a style that will allow function from both sides. If I find it I will let you know.

    Pre-Purchase Question Campershell/hardtop or RSI Smartcap?

    I'll take some photos of the locks for you when I get out of work. From what I can tell there is no way to operate them from the inside. Youd have to replace them all together if possible. That is the only drawback with this cap. Its durable as all hell and looks better than the fiberglass.
