    IMG_8445.JPG I guess it's out with the old and in with the new... or something like that.

    I just picked up this '07 Limited today and will start to build it pretty aggressively over the next few months.

    Ended up selling the '17 Tacoma to build something larger to haul the family in comfort.

    I'll update as planning starts and parts get ordered.

    Those wheels will look great on it.

    Parts are starting to collect. Hopefully it starts looking presentable next weekend. I did install a 31M today though. It should work well with the solar setup for the fridge, etc.

    Details on the panel?

    Panel - Lensun 50 watt flexible
    Mounted - 3M 5952 VHB tape
    Controller - Renogy Wanderer

    You could easily make the panel magnetic if you wanted by taping a magnetic sheet to it. I chose to use the 3M tape because it's more secure.

    Truck looks great! I see you went with 2866 rear coils which look like progressive springs? how do you like them and how did you decide on the 2866, I know most are running the 2865...

    Sorry for the delay. If I were running a bumper and more weight I'd consider the 2865's. The 2866s work great for my setup and full size spare in the stock location. I also tow my trailer with it and the progressive springs work great. Absolutely no complaints at all!
