    Hey guys,

    I want to learn more about my truck but am a novice at best. Are there any good places to look for beginner's diagrams or education regarding the inner workings? Any thoughts on where I should start would be most appreciated.

    No Truck..well, maybe
    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now
    Ya know, back in the '70's ( I know, before electricity & right after the wheel was invented) There were a couple guys that put together the now famous... " The complete Volkwagon repair manual for the complete idiot" (title) & that thing was awesome, it really broke shit down to layman's terms so practically anyone who could read, could make sense out of it & really understand what they were reading, without all the technical jargon (which for those who knew none of it were hopelessly lost by the end of the 1st paragraph) & that manual also made you feel ok about not knowing squat about engines/engine repair, we could benefit from something like this, some of you old timers surely remember this manual...:)

    No better way of learning than getting a wrench out and tearing in to things. Start with little jobs. Soon you will be hooked.
