A.smo's Build log!

Hey everyone!

This is my progress/build log of my new truck. I'm doing this log to stay active on this site as well as to see where my truck goes. I bought this truck 7-17-14. It is my first truck, and Tacoma. I am only a college student right now so it will be slow and nothing major will be happening just yet. It is a stock truck for now.

Here's how it sits today! 7-26-14



Engine/Drive train:

-3.4l v6
-Manual 5sp
-Rear Lockers
-K&N Air filter
-Gibson Exhaust

Suspension:

-Stock

Armor:

-
None

Recovery:

-None

Electronics:

-
None

Wheels and Tires and Brakes:

-Stock rims
-Michelin 235/65/15

Misc mods:

-
None

As I stated, it is a stock truck. There has been a quite a bit of maintainence done from the previous owner. The truck has just over 218k miles.

To be done:
LBJ
Timing belt/water pump/thermostat
Rear Leaf's
Retrofit HIDs
Grey wire mod
Tint
Audio
Overall cleaning up the truck/making it look like it hasn't been sitting in the AZ heat
Service trans/Rear diff/transfer case
New door arm rest
New rims
New tires
Wet okole's
Weathertechs
Black Grill
Black rims

and more!

Done:
Rear diff/transfer case 8.9.14 218,400 miles
Partial Debadge
Red plastidip badges
De-mudflap

Here are the first pictures of the truck the next morning.

Alright guys. I could use some help. I'm looking to change my transmission, transfer case and rear differentials sometime soon. I wanted to make sure I bought the right oil. I purchased 75w-90 limited slip for my rear differentials and 80w-90 for both transmission and transfer case. I'm a little cautious because the guys at orielly didn't seem sure and I believe my Chilton manual stated different.

He hasn't done the transfer case or rear differentials ever and he did the transmission at 150k miles. The truck has 218k so I figured it's time for some new oils.

What new gaskets do I need?

Thanks!

One morething I could use some help with..

CEL P0420-

I've started some reading about it. Previous owner said he replaced o2 sensors. I was thinking of diagnosing the A/F sensor, but I don't know how to. Should I just replace it? How do I check for gas leak? Should I just replace to o2 sensors as well?

75w-90 is good for everything... front and rear diffs, transmission, and transfer case. 80w-90 is fine too. You don't need limited slip additive but I don't think it will harm the diff.

Ok cool. I didn't think it was too much of an issue I just wanted to make sure.

Btw- nice log. Once I get more comfortable in my truck and play with the 4x4 more I need to go out with some of the guys here in the state.
