Re: Viair vs ARB

I have a 400p, been using it for around 5 years. It has no problem airing up my 37’s, it’s not the fastest out there but we are always doing other things while it’s airing up. Usually packing up camp or reorganizing the cab, making sure stuff in the bed is good to go. I’ve never wished I went for a ...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

The problems with geometry of a swingout on our trucks comes from the tire. If you have a 35” or smaller you don’t need to relocate the spare tire. So a bumper tire carrier is only for 37-40” tires. If you set a tire of that size on your bumper, you can see that in order to not have the tire itself...

Re: New Rear Bumper?

I see swingout carriers taken so lightly on these trucks. Do not take them as a cure-all. Guys running swingouts on these trucks are running 37” or larger tires, and with how capable these trucks are, especially with the bolt on suspension options, you could shear the swingout carrier off in a heart...

Re: Steering Pop and Vibration

Trackbars get loose all the time, you need to lean on that thing. 200-225ftlb on both ends. A bad u joint is fairly obvious from the heard/felt pop while turning. Other than classic signs I couldn’t confirm one was bad until I pulled the axle shafts which is fairly easy. Once I got the joints out on...

Steering Pop and Vibration

Make sure your trackbar is TIGHT on both ends. If that doesn’t fix it I’d be looking st a front u-joint gone bad.

The rear LSD in these trucks does not make noise or lock up and there is no LSD in the front. It is a gear type in the rear.

Re: Facebook Group & Forum - Tire Popularity Poll

Pretty neat to read up on, thanks for posting! Hopefully Reloader dont get all butt hurt that those damned KOtoo’s beat out the RT’s by leaps and bounds. Popularity doesn’t mean quality. KO2’s are a common tire with generally poor performance under these trucks. But they’re cool, the Toyota crowd l...

The only thing that should be on that list below the Nitto Ridge Grappler is the General X3 and the Ironman. The first few options and those are good picks for these trucks depending on what you want to do!

I thought he was disqualified for owning a Tacoma. Any contractor should know those vehicles can’t take a beating and will leave you stranded when you need to push them. Hiluxes have no association with them. That’s a ‘cool kids of So Cal’ vehicle.

Re: Big Mods to a 2014+

I don’t see nearly the upgrades on these trucks as on the earlier trucks. I think there is a huge difference between the 03-13’s and the 14-present trucks - people buy the 14+ so they don’t have to screw with all the bullshit of the earlier trucks. They’re WAY better off the lot in, and more reliabl...

Re: ARB solenoids and reliability/longevity

You will get water in any compressed air system. Best simple setup is to have the hose and one ‘wet’ tank contain the untreated air and give it surfaces to cool. Then plumb those through something with an auto drain. You could use your big tank as a wet tank and then put a tiny on as a dry tank, or ...

I have a distrust for tire carriers on our trucks. I think the user needs to take a hard look at how they use their truck. Because the tire carrier is almost exclusively used on tires 37” or bigger, and how easy it is to really romp on these trucks, it’s just sooo easy to rip them off right at the s...
