Pulled trans disassembled broken snout and urd sleeve. Picking up trans from 08 in morning from local yard. Swapped in my old driveshaft since other had blown out carrier bearing after swapping on the flange and u-joint from other shaft. Will be rebuilding the other shaft with new paint, new u joints and the new rear flange my brother got me after breaking it.

I changed the oil and spark plugs in my truck today. The passengers side was a piece of cake but the drivers side was a pain in the butt. Next will be replacing the air filter and cabin filter.

Installed & wired up my Hella 700FFs. It has decent wiring harness...but I used a daystar switch for a clean install on the inside & ordered 10ft of 1/2" split wire loom off ebay for a clean install in the engine compartment.

I'm going to order some 3"dakars and LR UCA's but can't decide if I want to go OME with top plate spacers and trimmer pack etc or bilsteins with eibachs etc....

thoughts?
Standard OME Dakars give around 2.75" of lift. If you want a full 3", you may want to add the D29XL extra leaf set.

Start cruising the Suspension and Build forums for opinions. I know there are OME specific threads, and there's probably the same for the others. Unfortunately, it's going to be a pretty subjective subject, with a wide range of opinions.

I made it better (I'm sure Toyota would disagree but what do they know).

I installed a 12 circuits Blue Sea fuse bloc with a 80A Macro Fuse block to protect it.

I know........it looks like it's not connected but that's only because it's not . Unfortunately I didn't receive my wires and lugs in time.








With that in place, I passed a 10awg wire through the firewall and installed a Marinco 12V outlet for my Netbook computer. I removed a grommet, enlarged the hole and used an electrical plastic sleeve to protect the wire.










Finally, I put my RTT and my awning back on it and it's now ready for my 2013 overlanding season

Didja heat it up? Curious, I've heard it flows better and "steams" into the critical places like door edge folds and the like. Thought about putting linseed through an old pneumatic undercoat gun my Pops owned from years back. Seeing what PA DOT and some the Jersey road salt victims look like after a couple seasons makes linseed a wise move.

You're not planning to run two fuses/breakers on the fuse block, are you? I assume not & if not I would HIGHLY advise against having it all the way across the engine bay from the batter. You want your fused link as close to the battery as possible. Having a hot wire running across your entire engine bay unfused is a recipe for disaster.

Indeed. Just learning to use it. And to think I went all these years doing it by hand. I'm officially out of the Stone Age.

When I finally kill my Porter-Cable 7424, that Flex is the likely replacement.
