My sewing skills aren't all that great, but I got it done. And with only minimal blood shed

I couldn't take all the air bubbles in my crappy black vinyl, so I put on the only quality vinyl I had. It doesn't look too bad for hand formed..

Hey x_mods question about your fab mounts for the LED bar. Did you make extra holes in the roof to attach those mounts? or did you use existing one? guessing from the roof rack?
By chance did you save the measurements when you build them that you can share?
Bought a LED bar myself and the mounting brackets are flimsy at best ,would not use them even to hang a bag of cotton balls lol

Yes, I drilled 4 holes in the roof; two on each side. I don't have a factory roof rack

I don't think I have any exact measurements, but I will fwd you a PM I sent out to the few guys who have asked for measurements so far. That is the best I can do right now. Maybe I can send some pics of the paper template I made, if I can find it in the garage

I know, I really want light bars but that's out of the question for at least another year trying to pay off an engagement ring first and then sliders, a lift, and new tires and stuff. I just posted in that thread about how I started my 'Raptor LED Aux Lights' mod today but barely got into it. If you would be able to help me on wiring directions I'd greatly appreciate it since it'll be my first time splicing and dicing wiring together and correctly wiring lights to come on with my aux lights!

Went to the beach Saturday and Sunday with some TW guys. Good bunch of guys! And there were a lot of 4wd's so I got to play without working too hard (as in -with a shovel)

Rommie with the Yota's


This weekend taught me a few things; 1) My Duratrac's don't deform as much as I would like. 2) Rommie is mostly 1wd in the sand when I pull the ABS fuse (the ABLS is useless and has to go!) and 3) I would look a lot cooler with 4wd (then I could be on the other side of the tow strap)

Now I am reconsidering my tire choices So far The Duratra'cs have outperformed the KO's I used to have on the grass, in the mud, and on the wet pavement. And I knew they would be worse in the sand, but now I know how much worse. I would consider some new A/T's if they are on a good sale.

And I said a few years ago that I would be willing to swap over to 4wd, but now I might have to just to play One of the Toyota guys is in the process of swapping his over and is almost there, but he has a donor truck, and I have not been able to find a donor PRO-4X around here at all! But if I can't find one, I may have to get a locker sooner rather than later!

If I can just get my hands on a cheap OEM T-case I think I could make it work....

We can trade tires.

I would totally buy your old Duratracs, but I bet shipping would be cost prohibitive.

What were you aired down to?

Maybe you've already looked into this, but I would be concerned that the ECU would be a problem. There was a recall on the ECU on the Vibe a while back, and the dealership mistakenly installed a ECU that was meant for a car with an automatic transmission. It tripped my check engine light. Are there different ECU's for trucks with 2WD and 4WD?

Have you looked into something like this?

^ yea 'Mods, you should get the Dynapro ATMs and be my test mule for sand and stuff JK JK but seriously, that's the tire that I'm dead set on unless The Wranglers that Walmart sells go on sale for hella cheap lol I just like those tires in general...they probably aren't any better than Duratracs I'd imagine.
