    Like the title says, is Streetacos/Beefed Taco still in business?

    If not, anybody know what happened?

    Thanks...

    I tried streetacos.com but only got a list of street taco restaurants, as though the domain name expired?

    I've tried googling streetacos and beefed taco but could only find threads that are 5 years old and most of those were complaints about orders taking months to fill...

    I want to (finally!) order his 2inch blocks...

    There’s pretty much identical ones for sale all over the internet. Try eBay

    Find SDYota on IG. Hes a member on here too but more active over there. He was selling custom blocks a while back, might be able to get you set up

    Yeah, I know there is DJM blocks but what I was really interested in are his U-bolts, especially the 9/16" stuff. Not so much the diameter of the bolts but the width which is specifically sized for the Toyota axle tube diameter. Most block kits have generic 3" U-bolts.

    Unfortunately, I dont have an IG account...

    This is great to hear. I went to a 4X4 parts store many years ago and saw they had a huge selection u-bolts. Wasn't sure if they still do. I'll go check out the local 4X4 Parts store.

    Thanks!

    Oh, what do you think of the cast steel/iron blocks? I know the aluminum ones are a no-no...
