Also Installing the exhaust. Defiantly loader than stock but not unbearable by any means and the fit was perfect. It is also tucked up out of the way from damage with exit at the rear so not in harms way like the stock exhaust.

Will get installed pic's when the snow stops. MACH Force-Xp 2-1/2" Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System

From the site

aFe power introduces the MACH Force-Xp cat-back exhaust system for the Toyota Tacoma with L4-2.7L & V6-3.5L engines. This cat-back exhaust is constructed out of 3" 100% MIG-welded, mandrel-bent, stainless steel tubing for maximum flow. The smooth transition bends and free-flow stainless steel muffler allow for low turbulence, increasing horsepower, torque and improved throttle response. In testing, the cat-back exhaust system resulted in gains up to +9 horsepower and +10 lbs. x ft. of torque, as measured on our in-house dyno. Finishing off this exhaust is a 4.5" diameter polished tip. The tip comes with a laser-cut aFe Power badge riveted on for an aggressive style.

Details:​


  • Features a Hi-Tuck design to provide maximum clearance
  • Constructed Out of 2-1/2" Mandrel-bent 409 Stainless Steel Tubing
  • Utilizes a High-flow 409 Stainless Steel Muffler
  • Attaches Using Bayonet Style Hangers for a Secure fit
  • Includes Heavy-duty Band Clamps
  • Hardware Included for a Hassle-free Installation
  • Single Rear Exit System

Replaced the stock stabilizer link over the weekend with Mevotech Part numbers TXMS86850 & TXMS86849. I prefer them over stock for their enhanced sealing much stronger Sintered Metal pivot/bearing and that they can be maintained the presents of a grease fitting not found on OEM.

Not sure if Tacoma's see an issue but with Jeeps I saw these OEM nylon pivot/bearings pop when worn where from my experience sintered metal even if not maintained will get loose but stay together.

Purchased from Rock Auto, need to search by part number to find them. Had to assign an email to one of the part numbers to be notified when in stock and missed it once when I did not respond quick enough. So if your in the market use that option.

Info on their features and benefits here on Mevotech

Started with installation of a Skyjacker 3" Coilover kit with A-Arms and their 2" Rear Leaf Springs. Had this done at the Dealership before I picked it up. First kit i 30 years I did not do myself and I have done 40+ kits ranging from every Jeep to Tundra and Dodge 1500's. The dealership Koch 33 sells lifted Toyotas off the lot so worked a del to have them do the installation. Kit includes diff drop, sway bar drop, upper a-arms, M95 monotube rear shocks, Fox coilovers and Rear Leaf springs. I decided to swap in Fox rear shocks for no other reason than to match the front set-up. Much more to come as parts come in.

Wheels are here waiting on tires. Hard to look at on those stock steelies! This the bare bones Tacoma SR with only options being Door sill guards and door edge protectors.

In preparation for the Warn ZEON 10-S Winch - 89611 installed the Control Pack Relocation Kit for ZEON Winches, 78" - 89960

The installation instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. However you will need decide on location mounting and suggest building a longer harness for the controller plug as it is only 6" long (second image) as no mount is included.

I went with the fender fire wall. Tapped it, marked it and installed blind rivets. If a blind rivet tool is not in your arsenal an offsetting bracket in those OE threaded hole (1/2" to narrow) would work nicely. I also purchased machine spacers and 8mm hardware for the local store to space it away from the plastic trim on the fender. Purchase a couple lengths to save running back and to keep as close to the sheet metal as possible to prevent leverage.

As mentioned here is not bracket included for the 6" long controller connector harness so rather leave it hanging I built a longer wire color match harness in split loom and located to the front shroud. I also matched the winch mounting pattern in the shroud to allow use of the protective cover. Also use dielectric grease on all connection to protect from corrosion.

The ground connection was made at the OE fender location as the battery terminal was not an option without disturbing the OE terminations I preferred to leave be. Both cables were trimmed to the required length over hiding the extra. This will require you have ends on hand solder plugs to complete the connection in the same as Warn provided them.

I found after much struggle the provided boots for the connections were impossible to get over the terminations so removed and trimmed to get full coverage and ease of installation as shown in the image below. On to the bumpers.

Have the Warn Illuminated Dash Rocker Switch Kit - 99897 on the way to have an in cab option as well.
