    I'll take a picture of the one I have from Montana tomorrow, it's a 59 I think? But it has "prison made" stamped into it as well

    The A/C smelled like a locker room on a sunken battleship, changed the filters while I was cleaning the evaporator.

    Tesla filters, $17 each.

    Lucas? Redline? Valvoline?

    About to order some gear oil from Amazon since plenty of it is pretty cheap.

    Need to replace my other CV axle so may as well order the Lexus plug and replace the oil in the front diff.

    If it's going in differentials or the transfer case just get the fucking cheapest Valvoline in the right weight.

    I've just been ordering the SuperTech gear oil from Wally World for the diffs, cheaper than anything else.

    Transmission gets the good stuff

    Didn't need to use the axle seal on the passenger side but I've got driver side case I need it..

    20210107_223439.jpg

    I just realized I have a replacement front diff drain plug; the stupid hex key one o_O

    20210107_223452.jpg

    As well as the axle and transfer case fill plugs...

    20210107_224059.jpg

    Have several flat copper, aluminum, and crush washers that are used throughout the transfer case, diffs, and transmission.

    20210107_224131.jpg

    Glad I bought all this and more for the Tacoma only to end up using it on the 4Runner.

    I have a few cool ones in my room. The unsafe mine one I bought from a mining supply in Elko, NV. It’s made on a blank Nevada license plate which is cool.

    Top one is from Mindanao, Philippines, bottom one is from the German state of Thuringia.

    Oh shit...

    I helped answer some dudes question recently about their manual hubs axles.

    The end is threaded to accept a bolt/washer combo and is used as a back up to the snap ring that holds the cv axle in place.

    I just realized I own a pair of those very bolts even though I never planned on running them :rofl:

    @Abeyancer

    Since you have manual hubs, do you want a pair of snap rings (attaches at the wheel end of the cv axle), front diff drain plug (hex style), and pair of bolt/washers that are a back up to the snap rings?
