Tacoma Alternator Rebuild

After a lit­tle over 300,000 miles on my 1998 Toy­ota Taco­ma, the alter­na­tor final­ly died this week. A re-man­u­fac­tured one is around $130, so I decid­ed to rebuild mine.

Snow Wheeling

We had a snow storm here in North Car­oli­na this past week­end, so I got to do some snow wheel­ing. I most­ly trav­elled the back roads, look­ing for peo­ple that are stuck or need help.

Strobe Lights in the Toyota

I recent­ly put some LED strobe lights on my truck. I made the strobes myself. Each strobe has 27 high inten­si­ty LEDs. Also each strobe costs about $16 dol­lars to make. The front strobes are hid­den behind the grill and are sealed in a project box. I tied the strobes to the turn sig­nal lights, which I replaced with LEDs.

I also replaced the gauge clus­ter with one that has a Tachome­ter. The new one has white faced gauges, and red LED light­ing behind it.
