Labor day. Any labor done to the trucks?

You guys do any work to the trucks this long weekend? First I changed my spark plugs (6 densos). 2 things, first it was pretty easy, these trucks are not bad to work on, second, I had one of the trucks with 3 densos and 3 NGKs, its weird. I then got rid of the pre filter (6 plastic rivets) and rotated the tires. wasnt bad

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Upgraded my brake lines to steel braided ones, flush system and new shoes in the front. Brakes 'feel' tighter and more responsive now.

I didn't work on mine, but helped two friends with their non-toyotas. All wheel bearing issues, one front & one rear. Makes me glad my truck is new! I think I'm gonna extend my diff breather, I use to always on my older toyotas. Will have to do a search here. Thanks for the reminder.

Wireset?! what is this 1988?
Newer vehicles do not have wires they have "coil packs".

Didn't any work ON the truck, but did some work WITH the truck. Hauled at least 1,000 lbs of logs to a buddy's house for him to cut and split for fire wood. He was having a party, invited us, and offered to trade some wood for an extra dehydrator he found in a closet. lol So now we're gonna be making our own beef jerky and a few other things. Maybe try some deer jerky once we get more meat. I was about a 1/4" off the bump stops, and that's more than when I had 1600lbs of wood pellets in the bed.

I was hoping to have new tires on by this weekend, but they didn't arrive in time. Still at the FedEx depot. Hopefully they'll be here tomorrow and I can have the wife take it to our guy down the road to be put on.

Installed hood struts

I put in the Redline Tuning struts I bought through the group buy here. Took all of 15 minutes to do.

I have pics up at Toyota Nation and will add them here in a day or so. Work is getting in the way of fun.

If you want, return the pop rivet gun. There is plenty of room to use a sheet metal screw.
