going to tackle the dropping the transmission pan and re-freshing that this weekend. downloaded the TSB from this site, looks not too awful bad.
found a place to put a coin holder, my 4X4 didn't have one. installed new bilestine off road 5100's all the way around, and i did not do it but someone managed to hit me in the rear bumper bent mine probably totaled his escort.
I am getting ready to install PUTCO STREET LIQUID BILLET PEDALS, TRD CAI, PAINT THE CAI stripes and lettering with my slate metallic touchup paint/paint the red hose with gray to match the other part of my engine cover, and waiting for my HOMELINK MIRROR so I can install it as well. I was good enough to save up about $550. The TRD CAI was $325 new and shipped, HOMELINK for $138.50 shipped, and the pedals for $107 shipped. PICS will come!
Alright, here are the pics of my weekend work that I promised. I haven't seen any other like it. Semi-Gloss Black border on Engine Cover, Cast Aluminum on TRD/Engine Cover middle/fuse box lid/relay box lid/TRD pipe, and Slate Metallic for lettering/numbering on TRD CAI and Engine Cover.
My Mother-In-Law one Xmas bought the whole family these Life Hammers from Amamzon for all of our vehicles.

Well, we all know how HUGE the console lid is....so I I just mounted it under the Console lid. Works nicely I think. Easy enough to get to when needed (hopefully NEVER!) but out of the way.
Replaced the thermostat in my 2012 5.7 V8 and can not get it to burp, its like there is a air pocket in the lower hose that wont let the thermostat open. Top hose is hot and lower hose is cool. Any help on bleeding it is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The clear stone shields down low and in front of my rear tires had been in service for 13 years, and they looked it. My truck has almost 300,000 miles on it and it has it's share of scratches & dents, but these were plain ugly.
Over the weekend I decided to do something about it... I...
Looking at shell options for my '18 Platinum Crewmax. With the deep bed, I'm thinking that a taller shell (Hi-Liner) might look more proportional than something shorter (Supersport or XtraVision). Plus it has the added headroom for camping, transporting bikes, etc. I'm not 100% convinced I like...
Hello, I have a 2016 Tundra with an odd sound coming from the front drivers side. It sounds like air escaping/hissing and gets really audible when braking. The sound goes completely away when turning left, but continues when turning the truck right. It comes on at about 15mph and can’t hear it...
Can someone please advise here? Done a timing belt/waterpump change on 2007, 2UZ 4.7 limited. All marks alligned, turned it over many times, comes back to marks, all good. It cranks over fine, no check engine warning light, just 4L,4H lights coming on, but it does not start. Pulled one plug...
