    I don't have BMW lights. But I can take a new close up of my headlights inside and out for you.

    So my fuel pump and/or pre pump strainer went out. Took the bed off the only way I ever can. With a hoist. Last time I used an engine hoist, this time my tow truck. Ratchet strap X with the hook in the middle. While its off I want to do some repairs. The bedside is coming loose from the floor, and has a few stress cracks. I use this truck as a truck though; its always hauling bikes, motors, scrap steel, furniture, ect. Hardly goes a week without using the bed. Anyways, here's some pics of how I did it. You can see our 440 Dakota and my ramcharger in the background.

    Tow truck is a 75 dodge one-ton for those who care.

    It's still running, just can't support any fuel demand past about 5 mph. Ill back under it tomorrow after a few test drives around the block to make sure the new pump works. It's fun cruising bed less for a few ****around videos anyways :D

    Here's a few underside pics. I built my own 4.5" blocks from two broken sets of DJM 4" blocks. They share a common center pin bolt all the way through the leafs. Zero movement of them. Pulled the center leaf. Have thicker ubolts from a 4wd shop in town. The clearance between axle and frame is about half that with the bed on :lol:

    Here's a view showing the exhaust. It's a chamber muffler with a full 2.5" system from the header-collector back. I used 2 45* bends instead of a 90 to clear the leafs. There's no fancy tip and its about 3" inside the body edge. I did that to keep it low profile. Kinda sleeper status. Kinda "if a cop doesn't see a tip, he won't think the noise is me" logic :lol:

    Yup. I always kick my exhausts out in front of the back tire. Not just toyotas, pretty much every exhaust I make.

    So it runs strong now. New fuel pump and strainer did the trick. Didn't get any rolling bed stunt videos lol. Cuz the tires I swapped on suck. I'm putting my 17s back on.

    Thanks. It's always such a classy truck when I look at it. Toyota did the lines right. Sleek mirrors and a drop are about all they need.

    My truck has the chevron mirrors bolted to it, what is the easiest/best way to plug the hole if I remove them? It has a small one on it too, is it a factory one? Where can I find mirrors that match the holes?

    You can use a carriage bolt and nut with nail polish to fill the holes. Or do what I did for my mirror holes....nothing. :lol:
