Hey, who's dumb idea was it to get a 25gal fuel? (it was me)
Idiot....36gal is much better.

Where are you putting your fuel cell at?
More weight behind the axle the better. 25 gallons in a pre-runner isn't a lot of fuel when you are gettin it for a while. I'm planning on 32 gal behind the axle.

it will be mounted as far back as possible, behind the axle. they have someone coming down to laserscan the frame and build a lasercut frame and cage for it. It will likely be a kit available soon. CARB compliant.

@eimkeith needs a 2nd gen taco. It's a shame he's on the east coast. I could leave mine for days for r&d

the one that you can twist and bend by hand? yup.
Its actually not that twisty. Tim at DMZ says to leave it in there unless it absolutely needs to come out. When I bought the SUA from him I told him I was gonna take it out....he asked why?? I told him because its weak and flimsy.....he then schooled me about it...so in it stays until I have reason to take it out.

its in the way of the new fuel tank and there is a custom cage and frame being made for it. WAY stronger than the recycled microwave and rebar that brace is made from.

It's stock so it must go.
By default it's faulty.
