Zam15’s Tacoma Build

Upgrade on the truck today. New lowers with 1" uniball conversation. Steering is super tight and significantly stronger! Removed a good amount of play. Will also be much easier and cheaper swapping the uniball than having the LBJ modified every time to work with the heim steering.

This was the last of the ball joints on the truck! Heims and uniballs all around.

After years of floating ideas on hot water for the ring, I pulled the trigger on a tankless water heater instead of a heat exchanger with engine coolant. It works flawlessly! No more cold dishwashing or showers! ️

Easily taps into my propane and water tank. Ready for the next field test!

Does the water need to be pressurized before entering the heating unit?

For this one yeah, I've got an 18Gal tank and RV water pump in place. Some come with the pump, others have it built in.

Can also just plumb it in to a normal home or camp site hose spigot as well.

We use ours for a horse washing, much easier than running gas/electric lines. Monitor the D cells.

Trying dumb things so you don't have to! Worked better in my head, a pain to setup but it would sure beat mosquito bites.

Nice to have a 9' safe area. Also looking at pop-up shelters too.

Trucks been down for a little getting some front end rework done after someone decided to fender bender me. Thankful they could get me in once again and did some good work on her!

Will be happy to have her back on the road with a fresh facelift! Just need to snag a few more pods! DD+Baja make a good combo.
