Hey Mike, Yeah, got it back last weekend and it does crawl slowly. They did a really good job with it. The one piece drive shaft solved all of the vibration probelms I had.


They also got me the Toyota type flanges for the Dana 60's and then changed the old drive shafts to Toyota type drive shafts with the double CV's at the transfer case.

Love it. Anyway, I've got some small stuff to do to it and then I'll be in Big Bear on the 24, and 25 of this month. I know your going up on the 18th, but if not and you come up on the 24th, then we can wheel.

After that though we need to get together and hit up Devils Canyon. That looks like a really cool trail. Did you ever go down there to find out the status of it?

No I have not. But I now have the time off work to drive out there if needed with the truck and get paid mileage too for it!!! I most likely will drive some of the trail and have a look. Might see if one other taco can go with me and maybe just run it.

Sorry, won't see you at Big Bear, but close. We see though. I'm working on a few projects on the truck. So I need to get my ass moving.

The shift nob is in a perfect location. Toyota should take note and change from the switch to this. Looks like it came from the factory this way. The classic Marlin Crawler shift nob. Love it! Looks like it was meant to be there.


Then foe all you bling guys out there here is a Rocky creation from Marlins shop. An billet aluminum shift nob that is really cool. And at this point it's the only one. It's going to cost me a fortune to keep these guys from making others.


I'll have more up tomorrow.

You could still be one of the first because as I know mine was the first and I think it's still the only one so you can still be one of the first. There was a rumor of a blue '05 in Vegas a couple years ago but it turned out to be just that Go for dude, you'll love it.

LOL Sure Dick, I'd love a gift from you. Just don't get it from the same JC Whitteny catalog you got all the stuff on your truck from......

Thank you very much.

I bought the truck in '05 and drove it for 3,000 miles to do the first oil change then we pulled it in the shop and started cutting away with 3,061 miles on the odometer. Love the truck.
