    it is possible that this truck was registered here for 22 years but lived elsewhere like Chicago, Minneapolis or Milwaukee, closest big cities that Toyota admits there is a problem, no problems to be concerned about here though they told me time and again!

    No. They, like yours and mine suffer from old ass vehicle syndrome.

    Rust happens. End of story.

    You can slow it down but you cannot stop it. Stop pissing off your local technicians about things they have no control over, or desire to care about as all youre doing is burning bridges. Understand that vehicles are disposable, and that they last longer in some places than they do others.

    i have never heard of fluid film until TW, but its probably not wise to do on a semi dirty frame?

    the technicians should know SOMETHING about proper treatments! ... maybe they do in other states but Toyota must not educate them or something
    they are tugging at my wallet now and I don't care for that at all ... $10-15k to upto $50k this is the potential cost i am trying to avoid

    but no worries! with all the sandblaster stuff i have breathed in this evening my life will be shortened...

    Got my new tail gate swing out installed! This thing is awesome. Sorry for the potato pics but it's pitch black outside, I'll get better detail pics when it's light out.

    It's unpainted so far but I'll probably paint it this weekend. The weight is definitely heavier than the stock tailgate but smooths out my Expos nicely in the rear.

    Thanks a ton to @GHOST SHIP for fabricating this up for me, anyone interested in one should shoot him a PM

    Will upload better pics tomorrow

    Don't worry too much about the dirt, as the Fluid Film will attract and hold dust anyway. To me, it's better as the dirt seems to bind it.

    Shipping might be killer on something this heavy but might be able to work it out with Greyhound or something, I'm not sure

    I think @Kwikvette got his Wilco one shipped from out of state, might wanna see how he did it

    Only 3 bolts were holding this bad boy in. The previous owners had pulled the trans for a clutch job in the last few years and didn't exactly remove it or reinstall like I would've. I'm getting used to expecting the worst on this truck and enjoying the process.

    The slave cylinder lines are smashed and bent up. Think I can bend some tube and replace pretty easily. Then I'll pop a new Marlin HD clutch kit in with the new R150F and be good to go.

    Always fun to drop transmissions.

    Did your roommate ever get the phase converter hooked up? I’m torn between a construction compressor trailer and a three phase compressor with a phase converter.

    Today he went and got this Speedaire for $200. Think he's waiting on the 100 degree days to stop before climbing in the attic and wiring across the house. Edit: Who knows what the Speedaire is for. This guy really likes compressors.
