    Probably makes it more manageable with those tires. Tacomas are hard to judge tire size, are those 33s or 35s?

    And yeah, it whines. I've seen some videos where it's VERY loud and I'm guessing those guys have some sort of very open cold air intake.

    Mine is not as loud as this:

    Looks good! I can't remember, is this the one that went through the crash, or did you find a new one?

    It's a new one (to me). It's the same, but different

    The good:
    Less rust, although my old one was pretty clean too
    Less miles at 104k vs 190k
    Supercharged
    5-speed manual

    The bad:
    2 door instead of 4 door (but I have the Landcruiser for family offroading)
    Not the TRD model, so it doesn't have the electric rear locking diff
    No ARB Bumper or sliders

    I have a supercharger on my 98 XJ. I have a roots style and the torque is great. Big difference over stock.

    99% certain it’s Oregon or Washington.
