I'll look thru my email at work on monday but I used a place I think was called abc glass. Need to verify. Either way, they charged me $120 for the full replacement in my toyota a few years back and just recently did another friends tacoma. We both thought it was really fairly priced, they come to you too.

Funny part is Ricky's friend John ended up with the best ride of the day... LOL

Found a jump, nothing major, ricky posted the very first hit on facebook, ended up hitting it quite a bit harder but probably not much more air. Just a small little hit.
Much better than I expected. It was awesome!

Edit: I don't have Ricky as a friend on FB. You should put the video on the TPF Racing page.

Yep, I've got a pack of rubber cane tips for mine too, been using them for a while now, they work great!

What the hell.

Why am I having such a hard time finding u bolts for a front dana 44? This is too much of a pain.

I can order a set online from BJ's or Rusty's but its freakin $20 shipping for like 30 bucks worth of u bolts. what gives?

Skips spring service will make them for you. Give them a ring to find out how much. No clue on the cost. Probably just need to know diameter, length, round or square end and spread I would guess.

Did a little DIY mod yesterday ... I think it looks pretty clean. Used aluminum mesh to give my radiator a bit more protection than what the grill typically affords.

I cut the mesh to size (I did it with one piece to cover the whole grill), then used loctite to attach a matrix of mounting bases for cable locks around the grill openings. Then, I used really narrow cable ties to cinch the mesh in place. I probably overdid it, I ended up with almost 40 bases and cable ties, but it seems pretty secure.

Sorry bout the quality on this one... My computer doesn't have the power to even remotely handle editing HD. I can't actually even play back to the footage full speed honestly.
