Still some more maintenance and modification. And now owning and wheeling this thing for about 5 years I've started to wear out things I've already replaced.

example A



I'm hoping the new motor mount will reduce some vibrations I've been feeling.

I also added another set of .75 spacers to bump up the front to match all the lift I got from those new leaf packs. It really seems to be sitting high especially in the rear. We will see if it starts to settle in come wheeling season.

Anyway heres some pics of trying to flex in the driveway.









I'm ready to wheel, now just waiting for the trails to dry out.

Drive to work this morning was nice, she seems alot happier with the new motor mount. I'm happy with the way it looks, now its time to see how she wheels now that its sitting a little taller.

Had a nice little spring shake down run today. Super wet and still a touch of snow, but didn't stop us from hitting the good stuff. Gotta say it was the first time out that had me thinking about a snorkel.






This 4 Runner is an absolute trail weapon on 38's. Needless to say I stayed to the high road when I could.


Actually allot of great Yotas in the group today.








Hopefully more pics will pop up soon.

Yeah Yotas make great rigs, I just wished I could afford what it would take to buy and mod one.

Thanks man, its was a really good group and we had a bast. We ended up turning around toward the end because of a downed tree that wasn't worth cleaning up and running the trail all the way back in reverse. It was a so much fun climbing the hills we usually descent and being the one leading the pack that we didn't do much of any stopping, spotting, and picture taking. But this pic just came up on the FB. This was just one of those drives that felt good.

Gotta say I haven't been happy with the ride of the TrailMaster springs. The rear seems too stiff and hasn't softened or settled like I had hoped they would and the fronts are silly soft, to the point that they are almost the same height installed as my Skyjacker 3" springs where. Long story longer, I may take another crack at the skyjacker springs, I had some shorty bastard Skyjacker leafs kicking around so I added them to the leaf pack. Guess we will just have to chuck them under there and see what we think.
