Fooled me! They look pretty badass from here. Where's you get the film? I've been trying to find lenses for my 6" Hella slims; no dice. The website wants me to buy whole new lights but I just need the glass. Damn.

Ok guys my Trac will be in taken to a shop for a transmission swap. Ill be going with the 185 transmission running with a EXEDY clutch kit and Toyota OEM throwout bearing, hopefully with a easy removal "which I doubt" the car will be back in my hand by Friday. The shop I took it to has experience working with Alltracs so if things go smoothly ill have a place I can recommend and take to. They are charging $800.00 for the R&R on the trans which I hope is considered cheap

$800? Hell yeah; I think Mitchell lists labor to do a clutch around 12 hours... so if a normal shop's labor rate is $100/hr, that'd be $1200 plus parts just to start.

$800... shit, I'd pay that so I wouldn't have to do it. However, that may be a starting price before they tack on for all the stuff that's going to break. Brittle vacuum lines, random sensors, rusted stuff... y'know.

I told them specifically to just work on the trans cause I can do the rest which I hope they heard me say

Transmission Update: so I just got my Trac back from the shop today and what a big difference! Shifts like butter and even my speedo works now, I'm so happy I finally have 3rd and 4th gear back. Total for labor was $760.00 and it was a great deal but I order $157.00 worth of parts from Toyota which they got for me then installed so grand total was $950.00 overall if your in the Bay Area California I would high recommendation them

The owner and the mechanics said it wasn't as bad to remove and install "then again they had lifts" plus one of the mechanics use to own a 88. I dropped it off on a weds afternoon and they were pretty much done by sat but wanted to double check everything on mon so I got it back tues

Sounds like you at least had someone around there that knew the deal so that's good. Most look at the dollars and don't realize what the got themselves into ... :twisted:

Hey I was reading this post on your 185 trans swap. I am having similar issues with my 165. I found a 185 trans for a decent price, but I am not sure the finer details on how compatible the trans are. If I were to buy this 185 can my mechanic just put it in the place of the original? I read somewhere about the need for a different flywheel . . . yaddaayaddaa.
Anywho Any info would be helpful.

So far so good the swap went well and the 185 trans was completely compatible

Its been awhile since i updated the things ive done lately to the alltrac so here it goes. So last month i made a custom rear roof spoiler for the 165 and picked a new set of 18x8 SSR wheels which i think looks amazing and pretty much got most of the attention at Toyotafest 2014

I actually used a Nissan S13 hatch spoiler but it did required some measuring and cutting to make it fit. It's not perfect yet but since I have a somesthing to work with now and can perfect it alittle better so I might be able to make them for the 165 guys now but we will see
