    Work required = too much.
    Level of sketchiness = not enough.

    In that situation. You leave the breaker bar on the wheel.
    Engage forward gear. Creep forward until the handle of the breaker bar meets shop floor.
    Apply more throttle until something gives.

    And they say us backwoods hillbillies can’t think outside the box.
    Rest assured, if the box has safety written on it, you’ll find us outside of it.

    Just push as hard as you want then just audibly say "click" when you're done pushing and BAM, you're at spec.

    After years of extensive development, regurgitating, and bullshitting right here at our very own TW, here's a simple 3 step process for maintenance & mods to help guide you throughout the ownership over the life of your Tacoma:
    1. For all maintenance that you can do yourself, feel like doing, or can afford, always follow the OEM specs & intervals. When anyone questions it quickly regurgitate, "I'm not going against the recommendations of the engineers at Toyota who designed this truck."
    2. For all maintenance that you can't do yourself, don't feel like doing, or can't afford, always follow the specs & intervals made up by yourself or others. When anyone questions it quickly regurgitate a really good story or reason you made up or heard...you know, the type that really gives you the warm fuzzies inside and helps you sleep extra well at night.
    3. For all mods just simply do whatever feels right or looks good to you...disregard things like structural loads & dynamics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, material compatibility & chemistry, electrical loads/signals/voltages/current, and the list goes on...ain't nobody got time for 'dat shit. When anyone questions it quickly regurgitate, "Stupid engineers at Toyota, what do they know about designing a truck."

    You'll need to beat on the wrench with a hand sledge to get em tight.
