Do it! Yes it's expensive, but TC makes some badass shit, and you won't have to replace it ever again

Yota Truck has been running pretty good. Rear end noise is still pretty bad, doesn't seem to of fixed itself yet. I need to pull it apart pretty soon, but I'll do that when the 63's go in.

I need to get back on the front bumper. I've been dreading all the welding and grinding.

I picked up some new .030 Wire and some new Miller Welding Tips. Hopefully I have enough gas to at least put a dent on the welding. I should get about 1/2 way done tonight.

This pic you can see how I raised the "wings" up and inch to account for the body lift. I still need to add some more pieces.


Lots of welding.




I rebuilt the Yakima Roof Bars. The tubing was rusted pretty bad and all pack rusted. I got new bars and pads. I also anti siezed and cleaned all the hardware as it was rusted pretty bad. Not sure what I'm going to put on it now

I agree with the wheels, but for some reason Toyotas can get a pass with them. Barely

Oh man, yeah, those wheels are hideous, they are corroded really bad as well. The tires are so dry rotted they stopped wearing and are terrifying in the rain.

I picked up some Offset 8 year appropriate wheels of Craigslist. Clear is in bad shape, I might sand blast them and powder coat with my HF setup.

I priced out sending them to OMF down in LA and have them converted to Beadlocks, but that was like $350 a wheel.

Wheels also came with like new center caps.

Making slight progress. I got about 95% of the welding done. I've run out of Gas and Wire.

Getting ready to start the grinding process. I think my exterior welds are too big and are going to suck to grind down.





Also, picked up some spare front end parts and another set of 4 spoke wheels from MTN Yota.

I went with the tip from Cory of NWTI when doing the bumper on my tacoma. Knock down the bulk of the weld with the grinder, and finish them with a belt sander for a really nice, crispy corner. Works mint.

$350 per wheel really isn't all that bad when you look at what quality beadlocks cost. I really hope you go through with it. Those would look fantastic and really set the truck off. Wheels are one of the most important aesthetic components in the stance of a rig. It's worth the extra expense if you can swing it.

Cool truck.

You can get quality beadlocks for less than $350

You sure are anal about prices, man.

What's a trail ready or Walker Evens fetch these days? Good beadlocks like OMF build are usually in. The $275-$375 range. Seems like a viable option. Shrug.

Damn right

Trail ready is closer to $400 but is a made in the USA as a dedicated beadlock, not a shitty off the shelf aluminum wheel with a weld on kit.

My 17x9 kmc's were just over $300, the shell was thick as fuck and they had the wide square saftey bead to prevent burping air like some of the other beadlocks tend to do.

If you're saying good things about KMC's while saying OMF is a shitty weld on, I think you should go look at how OMF goes about their product. OMF conversions are really good quality. They machine the lip of the rim off and their rings lock into the rim shell with a press fit before welding.

As for the inner bead. My issue with beads burping always came from the thickness of a lot of beads. Also 9" wide beadlocks are basically a 10" wheel. I bet those Toyota rims are a 6.5 or 7 inch wide rim. But I do appreciate a square safety bead.

Problem with OE wheels is the backspacing and they are narrow. Unsure if converting them to beadlocks makes them wider (like with steel weld on locks). Not a chance I would toss $1400 at some 30 year old wheels.

See, I like the deep back spacing. Big scrub radius is a killer. Puts steering components under more pressure. Kills ball joints (if applicable) causes wheelbase changes. Makes it that much harder to hold a line when doing technical stuff. On road handling goes out the window. Etc.

Now whether the tire package fits with the axle setup? That's a constraint for sure.

As for the narrow rim. I'm also an advocate. I hate 9" rins on a 12.5 or 13.5 tire. I much prefer a 7" or 8" wide rim. Helps stand the tire up at low pressure and keeps inner beads seated. Plus it pulls the sidewalls in further so they don't cut as easily.

I understand that the things I advocate aren't mainstream.
