It doesn't take much to make me happy !

It doesn't take a whole lot to make me happy: A set of late model Toyota rims off of Craigslist on the cheap, a nice polishing job, mount them to the same Toyo tires I'd been runnin on my SR5 rims, and I feel like I have a whole new truck

Yup. Got the diesel engine apart right now. #4 piston is shot; in the process of rebuilding it before it goes in. I'll keep you posted.

rear tire not all bad 'cuz you've got the front to steer with....

When the front tire goes due to a broken axle...things bet a bit interesting with the resulting tumble.
