      Two questions,

      1. Diesel guys: where do you usually fill up?

      2. Best place to take a truck with 33's to get aligned that won't charge you a crazy amount?

        I've been filling up at Co op lately, I used to fill up at flying J as it was cheaper, but I like the way the truck runs on co op diesel better (more power, might be all in my head, this was actually with my old truck, haven't tried Flying J in the new one).  I'm going to try Mohawk for the next bunch of tanks as I won some coupons at a social.  I track every tank of fuel, so if it makes a diference in mileage I should be able to tell.

            Co-op for fuel usually.

            For the alignment, no idea. Maybe some of the trucking places on Rte 90 might have more experience with vehicles with larger wheels/tires. Although they usually charge more.

              I fill up with Co-op or Shell. I find the truck runs smoother on Co-op and my MPG have been better with it

                I have a 1990 Toyota 4Runner. Has the 3.slow v6 in it.
                4wd doesnt work in it because of the stupid air operated system, so i'm going to bypass that crap.
                Here it is


                Plans for it are as follows. (Have them all ready to go, just waiting for a few dys off work for the install)
                6 inch lift, 33 inch studded general tire grabber at2's, full poly bushing kit, locking rear diff, still trying to decide which route to go with this, maybe just a limited slip to maintain the street driveability.
                Future plans, front locker/lsd and possibly new gearing and 35's
                Here's the tires compared to the stock 31's

                Looking forward to getting this beast built and bombing around in it

                  Are you planning to bypass the air operating system, so that the 4x4 will work?

                    Not sure if sarcastic? haha, yes thats what i said :p
                    Basically i have to open up the diff and manually position the fork so that its on the gear, and hold it there with whatever, worm gear clamp or something so that it won't move.
                    That way the diff will always spin, and then i still maintain on the fly shifting inside the cabin by using the lever to manually engage the transfer case. I dont really care if the light on the dash works or not.

                      Those tires are gonna be awesome, looks like there was some trouble balancing them though?

                                It is actually super useful, also acts as a ladder for getting to those high places

                                          It sure is handy. Loved it for loading and unloading the tires. Although when the windows are dirty and its cold it takes a while to roll up. Found that out after a long awkard 30 seconds sitting in the Canadian tire shop rolling the window up.

                                            It is insanely hard to find a rust free hatch with the roll down window. At least up here it is.

                                            99blackse has taught me Toyota truck parts are basically gold. I cant understand it.

                                            Anyone want some 31's?

                                              This is a rust free one with a roll down window. But thats because it came from vancouver, one year here and it wont be rust free anymore. And its had body work done, so its gunna rust quick im sure.
