that f'n driveshaft.....when i change the flange out I'll post a pic of the bolt. tip was just shaved down from the play in the driveshaft. Friday morning I'm going to drop my rear shaft off at the driveline shop to have it rebuilt. I also need to either swap the window ecu or do the solder repair.

I've finally got around to putting stuff on my truck that I had sitting around for years.
I installed the Lucky 8 bumper I had laying around. Its not the nicest looking bumper, but far superior than the plastic one it replaced. Now to install a winch, and to decide if I want to convert 4 old hella 500's to hid's.

with 33" tires i have about 2" of clearance from the rear bumper

JT that bumper looks a lot like the Devon 4x4 bumper. If I were you I would go with an LED light bar. Check out Brett's at the Annual.

Got a sheet of expanded aluminum on the SD rack to keep stuff from falling between the rails

Also gonna order quick fists for the rack so picked up some tubing mounts at lowes

They are galvinised 3/4" split ring pipe mounts, that hole is also threaded
Saw it on a Toyota site searching for quick fist info

Quick fists

You attach the pipe mounts to rack, bolt the quick fist to it to hold light stuff like a fiskars axe or fiberglass D shovel etc

No I am not dumb enough to put the hi lift on them lol

I am in the middle of putting on my re-drilled swivel balls, rebuilding the swivels, repairing the ARB copper line, new u-joints in both drive shafts, new pinion seals and changing all the oils.
I hope to be finished this weekend.
