Live and let Learn.
I thought the bumper looked a little funny in your last pic, but I couldn't remember if it was like that before or not.

I had mud in my Alt from the last time, it was only putting out 12.6v so I lightly sprayed water and let it dry, then a half a can of DeoxIT to clean and protect. Back to 13.9 (normal for me).

so, after the heavy mudding yesterday, I am not able to get my truck started. The battery is good, I've tried to jump it with cables. and cleaned all the connections I can see with automotive electric cleaner. cleaned the starter and alternator. When I try to turn the key, it just makes a audible click noise and nothing more. I'm guessing its my starter. anyone have any ideas????

Did you take the starter out? It would be a good idea to rebuild it with your kind of mileage. I just helped my friend do his 96 Avalon and the parts were about $30 from Toyota. Basically just new contacts. And we cleaned out the solenoid and lubed it with graphite while we were at it. He was at 110k miles and his starter contacts were only 20% of what they were supposed to be. Only took us two hours to get it out, rebuild it, and get it back in.

Clicking is almost always a bad battery.

Turn the key>power flows to the starter relay>relay coil clicks on sending power the starter solenoid>stater solenoid meshes starter gear with flexplate(auto)/flywheel(standard) and engages the starter motor contacts>starter motor draws around 80+amps>battery can't supply enough current>starter relay looses power and clicks off>starter solenoid loses power>high amp draw is now gone>cycles starts over again.

This all happens in a matter of less than a second leading to a rapid clicking.

Did it click when you tried to jump it? Or just not do anything?

my "fun" for today.

Worked non-stop from 10am-8pm in the constant rain up in Wahiawa

No lunch break, no bathroom break; Yes I slave-drive myself, it's better that way

Installed:

OME 90000 fronts with 886x springs
SS braided lines
LR UCA's with spec-ride bushings
Dakars+AAL
OME CB drop









and how she sits now;



On the long drive home, didn't notice any vibs...It had a slight pull to the right on the highway which is expected, i'll get getting an alignment soon.

Took initial measurements, but there is a bit of a load, so i'll clear out everything and let it settle before posting the findings.

Looks like fun. If possible, I always pull people out from the back. If you have a receiver hitch, it has better tie ins to the frame and your putting all the stress from the strap on the stronger side of the gears.

This ^

Try putting a volt meter on the battery, it should be around 12V with the engine off. If it is around 10, that is part of your problem. You may have killed the alt and used your battery up driving home. Was your batt light on while driving?

Oahu needs some water crossings somewhere.. go play in the mud then go over river crossings and wash all that shit off while its still soft. go home small kine rinse off and all good
Haha! That first crossing at Loop road is the best for washing off your truck.

The one summer I was there, we went up Kaleheo dam rd and my Landcruiser was MUDDY. We stopped there on the way home and drove around in the water and washed it down a little. I still spent the next day cleaning the crap out of it because I had to take it to the pier to ship back here the day after.

Awesome! I bet it was worth all that work

It look great now! All you need to complete it is that trans-transfer case combo

I'll probably finish it when I get back from TX

and holy crap...the 886 springs are something else! I'll definitely need to get a bumper/winch to smooth out the ride just a tiny bit.

the new leaf pack eats up everything on the road.

haha yeah i live just before loop road on kauai. so we go up there all the time to shoot guns (try kill a chicken or two) sit sideways in the dirt/mud. we pound it through those crossings. most times i just pressure wash the rest off in 5 min, and call it a day cheeeheeeee

So I have a set of wheels coming in hopefully next month. Anyone know of a good place that can pull the TPMS out of my stock wheels and stick them in my new Konig countersteers? I'm gonna put some duratracs on, can/will goodyear do it when before they mount the tires?
Thanks

Got stuck for a little in the sand

I went up to Kaena Point for the first time yesterday and got stuck on my way out when I decided to test my truck in the sand. Not a good idea, I had to dig myself out and finally was free. On the way up though I saw like 5 jeeps and was thinking we should meet up and do a little off-road as well. I only went up about 3/4 of a mile cuz its been raining and the ground was really soggy. TBH along some of the edge I almost shit my pants on the narrow trail looking down at the cliff. Anyways I made it out alive and I want some more, but having someone with you to pull you out if you get stuck would be nice. Lets set a date and meet up??
