Alright we have problems.I had the bedsides on, read bumper mocked up, and I did some measuring. The bed is way the fuck off, basically impossible for me to mount it straight.
I don't understand - what is the issue with mounting the bedsides?

Yeah tire down low looks better. But my departure angle would have been worse than before. And was dragging lots of rear bumper before. I don’t want to go backwards..

Did a temporary fuel line hookup, jumped the fuel pump and was able to get it start. Tomorrow I’ll try to run all the lines and get some things buttoned up. Also mounted the battery box, and cut the battery cables to length.


I dig it.

Hoping tomorrow I can run all the lines clean, and have it running again.

Alright went back out and secured the brake lines, battery cable, and fuel lines front to rear. Not with zip ties either! With these.



And if actually turned out really nice, and looks good. I’ll try to remember to take pics tomorrow. I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I began fiddling with the wiring harness as well. I need to wire the connectors for my fuel pump, see if I can get the new fuel sender hooked up, and simplify the tail light wiring a little. Then Secure all that bullshit inside the frame rails nicely. I also applied heat reflective tape to the fuel cell as the exhaust will be running underneath it kind of.

So my Tacoma has a 3 wire fuel sending unit, but my fuel cell has a 2 wire sending unit. Wonder if I can make the 2 wire sending unit work with my 3 wire setup?

I couldn't figure it out on my ford sending unit. Ford uses a 2 wire setup too. I tried every combination I could to try to make it work and couldn't make it happen. Something to keep in mind is the ohm range on the sending unit you bought compared to Toyota factory gauge reads 110 ohm empty to 3 ohms full. So depending on which sending unit you bought, it may cause the stock gauge to read backwards and very inaccurate. I just bought a new gauge from AutoMeter with the correct ohms range and hung it up on the map lights/sunglasses console so it's out of the way but still easy to see.
