I got some small things done. I got my "new" speedo mounted (70's yamaha scooter speedo, goes to 80mph) and I sectioned 4.5" from my front fender to shorten the front of it. Originally I wasnt going to run a fender but I took it for a ride the other day and got covered in water cause of not having a fender so I decided to put it on.

I took the carbs apart again and cleaned them another time and it went away.

I have the truck and the bike. But I do have some rough plans for a car build that are on the back burner till these two projects are farther along.

Maybe in a couple years it will get a TRD S/C. But for now its my DD and will be the tow rig for the Ranger when its finished. I might do some small stuff here and there. It has an exhaust and TRD rear sway bar. looking to get some airhorns for it cause the stock one just doesnt seem to fit a truck of its size.

Speedo mounted


I also put the front fender back on as I took it for a ride on the damp road and got covered in water. I did section out 4.5" from the front half of the fender.
