I don't need new ones. My dad is upgrading his rotors and pads for towing so I wanted to see if I could take advantage of his old stuff since its basically new

I am pretty sure 2nd gen calipers are on the rear of the spindle, 1st gens are on the front of the spindle. Doubt it would work

I am the proud new owner of this '03 DC 4x4! Exactly what I wanted! One of the cleanest engine bays that I've seen on a truck this old. If you look in the top right hand corner of the engine pic you'll notice that the previous owner had a set of lights wired up already. So I've already got that party done!







What is that lever on the steering column? Not the signal. The rectangular one

Cruise control, seems that this type is an aftermarket unit added at the dealership, mine is just like it, but others are different all together.

Contact Jorge at Camelback Toyota for the bushings, i bought a set in August. I'm sure he'll be able to get the other parts as well.

Why is it so huge though?

Also I love how toyota reuses old technology in there new vehicles. The cruise control in the 2013 Prius C is the same little lever and button design that mine is.

I agree! It is weird getting used to. On the way home I kept reaching for the same 'ole spot. I think they could've come up with something better. Maybe I can move it somehow...

Because the switches are inside of that "arm," and not inside the wheel like a factory cruise control. It's completely stationary with a small button on the top and bottom to set/coast or resume/accelarate, instead of pushing the lever down or up to function.

From what I can tell mine worked fine. I drove it an hour and a half home from the dealership and I didn't have any problems with it, other than the odd mounting location. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself...
