    After calling the local Auto Parts shops, nothing is getting pulled up for the Toyota part numbers. (90404-51026), (90404-51319)
    Online, I find them no problem. Toyota direct = No problem.
    I want a solution NOW.

    Question for anyone that may know.
    The breathers for the front and rear differential, I assume are Metric thread? What?

    I'm going to pull the rear.
    The hydraulic shop can likely get me fixed up.

    All the parts that I have ordered from the local Toyota Part Dept were delivered the NEXT DAY.

    Can't hardly get much faster, unless its sitting on the shelf.

    Amazon isn't that fast.

    As stated, just order from Amazon, Ebay, or even from a Toyota dealer.

    A lot of them are the same between different models even.

    If you've got your old one, and wanted to find the size/etc. take your current one off and take it to a hardware store where you can measure size/pitch.

    I went to the Hydraulic shop.
    The boys there, they had me fixed up with 3 threaded (barbed/no clamp necessary) nipples, and 12ft of 1/4" hose, in about 5 minutes.
    $20/OTD ;)

    The Front Diff and T/C went high on the FW.
    The rear vented to the gas fill area.
    All Installed
    DONE

    I ordered a wind deflector for the moon roof, and never got a call back. I gave up on that.
    I also ordered inner CV (Diff) seals and was told they'd be there the next day. Called, and nothing. The 2nd day I went to NAPA, and had them in my hands that day.
    Toyota Parts called me 4 days later, and said the parts were in. I told them I got them elsewhere, because I needed my truck on the road.
