not sure if this has already been discussed in this thread, but I'm looking into buying a 2004ish tacoma and I was wondering if anyone here has one and uses a tailgate pad and hauls their bikes on it. Just wondering if the tailgate is too small for the pads and hauling a 29er (sentinel) safely.

Old post but just looked. My buddy had one of those Gen Tacoma’s. He built a wood frame/extension of sorts to raise the bikes higher. The tail gate is short so they either didn’t fit or hung down super low. Believe they just hung down too low to comfortably shuttle trails and such. Found pics and it looks like the fork would hit the bumper pretty bad an interfere as well.

Anybody ever done a swap to rack and pinion? Thoughts on UniSteer products?

Can't comment on UniSteer but we usually either do Flaming River or find some OEM piece that'll fit. I generally prefer that method for better parts availability.

Any of you guys ever replace u joints? Mine sound/feel like they're failing and I wanna do it myself. Any tips? I have never done it before.

It's real easy. Plus you get to hit things with hammers.
Here's a video with a cute ginger in it.

Did it last night after work. Pretty easy. My truck drives so much smoother now. I think my u joints were bad since the day it left the dealer. I have always had a small clunk and noise from the drivetrain. Dealer could never figure out what was going on. Now it's gone.

Bit late but easy way to check if it is the U joints is grab both sides of the U joint and twist, there should not be any free play. Sub frame bushings can sound the same and ones an easy fix, the other can be a pain.

Need to do that, and in the meantime replace the transfer case seal on the montero! Thanks for the link!
