I was able to stuff the rear of mine with the OEM sway bar on, but I think the wife will like it a bit better now that its more stable.
If anything I could disconnect it if I really need the flex.

Toyota's are notorious for rust buckets here. Regardless, when i go fishing, I rinse EVERYTHING. Including underneath very well due to the spray, even though I NEVER drive in the water.

**** rust. 'nough said.

i looked at it sitting in the driveway and thought:
1. Damn, that's a good looking truck.
2. It'd be even nicer if i had money to toss a lift and some tires on it.

my jeep's been sitting for over a week in the driveway and woke up today to a flat. i'll have to inspect it later to see how and if it's fixable, but that's my second flat tire in recent months.

Surely it hasn't been sitting there due to more tranny trouble?!

Going to home depot, picking up two 7/16 clevis pins and am going to replace the bottom bolt for the sway bar with it to make quick disconnects.

Wasnt too bad. There are lots of full write-ups on the forum "TANK LIFT". Just measure everything 3x before cutting.

On topic-worked on the cover for the gas tank.
