Bought a 2010 (7114) 4cy auto one month ago to the day. Wasn't looking to buy until June of next year, but cash for clunker flushed me out to look. Left my only 1 owner 93 GMC at the dealership 200 miles from where I live to get the last C4C the dealership sold. I was just lucky it came into the stealership just before the gov. ran out of money. I wanted a different brand of truck, but the rebate was less than the Taco I purchased. Had to pay the stealership sticker or they "had someone waiting to pay sticker if my deal fell through". God do I hate car salesmen.
I love this site and am happy to be the new member. I have done a couple of the mods you have in the sticky and thanks to all who have taken the time to post the pics and step by step instructions. I had the OEM Cruse Control installed by a dealership locally. Several of the stealerships (including the one I bought from) wanted $600.+ to install. I talked to the service manager at the Slidell Toyota and he installed the control for $250. He said that the OEM part listed for the truck would not work and installed one for a corolla. He must know what he is doing; the cruise works perfect and was over half the price everyone else was quoting. If I had found this site before I had the cruise control installed I might have tried to do it myself. I had the cruise control installed at 400 miles and cannot live without it.
After finding this site and started to read several of the threads I ordered an aFe Pro-Dry S Air Filter and dropped it into the filter box. I removed the secondary charcoal filter as showed in one of the sticky except I drilled through one end of the cover. A little silicone and all is well. I did not notice any improvement in mileage but maybe a bit increase in power. My first fill-up I got 24.4 MPG, my last fill up with the new filter I got 24.77 MPG. Not enough change to prove much. I installed the new filter at 700 miles. This week I ordered parts to install the fog lights. I found the lens on e-bay and ordered the plugs and switch on 1st Toyota. I bought the rest at my local parts store, Advance Auto. I will be out a little over $225 but will have OEM parts for the ones that show. The sticky for this installation will very helpful when all the parts arrive.
I also ordered the Intermitted wiper control switch from 1st Toyota with the fog light switch. I will like using the wipers in the rain much more after this mod is done.
One more thing I am planning to do is switch to Royal Purple synthetic oil at 5000 miles. I am debating to wait until 10000 miles but as for now I plan to switch to RP at 5. If there is a good reason to wait, please someone let me know.
Thanks again for all your information on this site; I know where to look if I have any questions.
Iím really enjoying the truck and having fun with all the mods.
