    UNDER CONSTRUCTION POSTED SO NOT TO LOOSE PROGRESS!!!

    Why Science Dog?

    BECAUSE:

    ihave.jpg

    So I used to have a 3rd Gen 4Runner that I cut my modding and off-roading teeth on, she was my unicorn '00 3.4l 5 Speed. I loved that little SUV (still miss it sometimes) but I got a motorcycle, and I started towing more, as well as doing other things where a pickup truck and generally just something a little bigger and a little more powerful (and frankly comfortable and modern read fuel efficient) was wanted.

    Old 4Runner shortly before selling and the Goldwing:
    20170308_131311.jpg
    I got a thing for black, don't judge.

    But this isn't about those!

    I was helping a friend move from the keys and his Tundra is a good part of what made me start looking for a truck, plus I had plenty of time to kill on the long trips to and from the Keys.

    After a LOT of reading and looking at builds here I set my heart on a 2nd gen Tacoma.

    My requirements were somewhat strict however. The replacement had to have everything my 4Runner had and more: NO ACCIDENTS, under 15k out the door, V6, Manual, 4x4, tow package, access cab, long bed, E-Locker, no sun-roof, and as Mr. Henry Ford once said it could be any color as long as it's black.

    I wanted a topper for sleeping in the back on trips like I did with the 4Runner, and the hood scoop but discovered on here that they only came on sports and I didn't want a sport because the E-locker was mandatory and was only on the TRD Off-Roads.

    No worries both would be easily added later.

    Well blessed I was as there was exactly 1 in the US that met all my mandatory requirements for sale in TN that I found via cars.com it even had a TOPPER!

    I called and put a deposit down on it ($500) to hold it till I could get up there that weekend.

    Two days later I got a call from the manager of sales at the dealership...

    "Hello, I'm sorry to inform you we are refunding your deposit. We had three sales people attempt to process the sale of the Tacoma each put down a deposit same day which attempted to process at end of day. As such I have decided the most fair solution is to refund everyone's deposit and the first person to arrive in person and process their application will receive the keys and take home the truck."

    My heart flopped and my stomach sank. I was on my way back from the FL Keys (was helping a good friend, mentor ,and fellow Toyota gear head move) and we had only just passed Miami.

    My friend dropped me off at my house and even though I had just got back from the keys and had been up since 5am and it was now 9pm (on 5 hours of sleep and a hard day of moving a 2nd story house no less) I hopped on my 'Wing and rode through the night and morning getting to the dealership. 'Corse it couldn't be an easy trip, no.

    On my over 800 mile trip I encountered horrid weather, freezing temps at night, a BFE Al'bam' cop who pulled me over for 40mph in a 35 and then nearly shot me because I declared I had my CWP and a pistol on my hip for his and my saftey. He had to be talked down by his back up which thank god showed up fast. I'm pretty sure he was drunk too as it sure smelt like alcohol when he was screaming in my face and yeah he still wrote me a ticket too. A flat rear tire on the motorcycle, near heat stroke in Mississippi, which then lead into blacking out / falling asleep on the motorcycle, only for a second though thankfully as the train horn on the semi I nearly drifted into brought me back. So I took a nice nearly 4 hour coma under an overpass close to the TN line. I was awoken by a phone call from my sales lady letting me know one of the other two interested parties had called. They had gotten into Memphis (they were driving 500 miles for the Tacoma) and had set up an appointment for the next morning as they were getting a hotel for the night and the dealership was closing soon. I hopped back on my bike, prayed the plug in the gash in my rear tire would hold the last hounded miles and some hard riding (which it did) and rode like the wind making it to the dealership only about an hour before they closed.

    20 minutes into paperwork party 3 came in the door, found me doing my sign offs and offered me $250, then $500 to let him have it instead. No thanks!

    God was looking out and has been since day 1.

    Day 1:

    used-2010-toyota-tacoma-4wdaccessv6mt-8531-16225241-8-1024.jpg

    My 1 owner, immaculate, 2010, unmolested bone stock, fully loaded, 2010 TRD Off-Road AC/LB V6 Manual 4x4!

    It even had a THICK stack of all service records the original owner kept, most of which were from Toyota, in the glove box!

    Anyways I finished paperwork, took the keys, and drove my truck around the corner to a parking lot, walked back and got my motorcycle off the lot just as they were locking up the gates.

    I managed to find a embankment that I could back up to and drop the tail gate, used my leather-man to remove the topper bolts, set that aside, rode my bike into the bed, laid it down to fit under the topper, put the topped back on spent about 20 minutes going over the frame for any rust finding absolutely ZERO this thing looks 0 mile new even if it does have 170k on it! (The owner put all highway miles on it driving home to Memphis from Louisiana state University every weekend.)

    While crawling under the truck I found a spare (valet) key zip tied up in the frame SCORE!

    I then slept in the passenger seat for 9 hours.

    The bike didn't quite fit by the way...

    20170515_210205.jpg
    I had to take the mirrors off and it hung out the back.

    20170516_094534.jpg
    That last picture from that day was something that made me laugh out loud considering where I had just been less that 24hrs prior.

    I looked at the details on the picture I took as I was walking out to it.

    I purchased it May 15th 2017 at 4:30pm dealer closed at 5pm.



    Today 6/8/19, just over two years of ownership:

    Under construction:

    After the trip home and unloading the Goldwing I poked at the truck some more, did full fluid changes of all the gear oils discovered I had a slight oil pan leak. (MORE ON THIS LATER.) and that I was out of brakes up front.

    I got rid of the cracking pealing silver pinstripe with little Toyota logos along it here and there.

    Gave it a full detail inside and out and paint
    correction and good waxing.

    Man she shined like a diamond.

    Found a Viagra wrapped in a paper towel hidden under the carpet in the center console while detailing the inside. o_O!

    Discovered the stock Yokohamas were a little dry rotted and damn near deadly in the rain! Traction control was essentially constant if the road was wet. So I took the 5 star wheels off the 4Runner that had fresh Goodyear's on them, (the wheels and tires actually came from the other 4Runner I had because the BFG KO's had gotten dry and scary in the rain too.) and put them on the truck.

    Frankly I really liked how they looked and 3rd gen 4runner wheels have IMO the PERFECT offset for 2nd gen stock Tacomas, way better than the TRD Off-Road snow flakes. Ew.

    And then the modding started. Had to get her up to the snuff the 4Runner was at.

    Hopped on Craigslist and sourced a non chrome grill, actually traded the guy for my chrome one straight up.

    Got that home and painted it matte black.

    Frankly put funds were low, the 4Runner was on the back burner so I did some looking into stuff and discovered something very interested.

    The 2nd Gen Tacoma's brakes suck.

    They use the same size Piston as the 1st gen tundra a larger caliper but smaller pads and rotors

    UNDER CONSTRUCTION

    Clutch Job:

    So purely parts this is what I ended up getting:

    Clutch specific
    Rear main seal 90311-A0006 (If you do any seal let it be this one even if it's not currently leaking.)
    Y pipe to manifold gaskets: 90080-43036 x2 (Toyota says this is not a reusable part however I have reused mine twice before I had a leak decided it was time to change them or they would probably fail soon.)
    Clutch Fork: 31204-35060 (Updated TSB Part. Also it includes the post snap ring and boot)
    Fork Support Post: 31236-35050 (Updated TSB part)

    URD Stage 2 Clutch kit:
    Comes with:
    Flywheel, your choice of heavy or light strangely no stock weight so I chose the Torque U Heavy as I figured it should help with my stalling off-road or get your stock one machined. (My stock one had some bad heats spots thanks to the stupid accumulator valve causing slip and as the clutch had been out of my truck a few times I figured it had probably been machined a few times and was probably no longer capable of being machined.)
    Clutch Disc stage 2
    Pressure plate stage 2
    Clutch disc alignment tool
    New bolts or see below.

    Added to the above kit order for the discount:
    ARP bolts
    Quill sleeve repair kit
    Which comes with the modified throw out bearing


    Optional:
    Shifter Pin Lock Ball: 33292-0K011 (For the 2nd mod in my clutch bearing destruction post.)

    Y pipe to muffler pipe gasket: 17451-0D020 (Toyota says this is not a reusable part however I have reused mine multiple times I as of yet have no leaks.)
    Exhaust bolts for Y pipe to Muffler pipe: 90080-10291 x2 (I twisted mine getting them out as they were seized. Glad I didn't break them off and have to drill them out like I did the upper Y pipe to manifold bolts. I ended up tapping the threads in the other pipe and using the new bolts and old springs.)
    Y Pipe 1 to Y pipe 2 gasket: 90917-06083 (Only needed if you choose to separate Y pipe 1 from Y pipe 2 but you can fish the whole Y pipe out without breaking that joint.)
    Stainless fine thread m10x40 metric or standard 3/8x1.5 bolts and whiz nuts x6 (These are for the manifold to Y pipe and to the transmission mounted exhaust brackets as you will more than likely snap off and have to drill out the original ones.)

    3 qts Redline MT90 GL4 transmission specific gear oil (You don't have to if you don't drain your transmission but it was well and time for me to change mine, I think I got water in mine because I was up past my floor in water for 15 minutes a while ago.)
    2 qts 75w-90 Gear oil for transfer case. (Again not needed if you don't drain the transfer but as with the transmission...)

    LocTite 573 Medium (Green) Flange sealant for lubricating and sealing the OUTSIDE EDGE of the rear main seal. (You can use grease, some people use nothing but it helps the seal do it's job better and last longer since I had some from work I used it. It makes install of the rear main seal a little easier to anyway.)

    URD O2 Sensor Extension Harness. ( I have headers which relocate the upper O2 sensors further down stream, originally I just stretched the stock harness as getting to them to put the extensions in is a pain but with the trans out, easy to do it right. and makes reinstalling the trans much easier without risk of pinching a wire between the block and bell housing.)

    Clutch inspection cover: 31101-35010 (Mine was missing from the day I bought the truck, according to my records from the PO they had had clutch squeak issues and thus had had the transmission pulled out 3 times, I suspect during one of those times it was misplaced or forgotten by the tech but it has a little bit of a seal and keeps dust and dirt and splash out of the bell housing so I got it to put it on and replace my home made one.)

    Input transmission shaft seal: 90311-T0066 (In order to replace this seal you need some SST's (Special Service Tool) and you have to remove the transmission bell housing which ridiculously enough requires the case and all gears and shafts to come out too. I opted to not change this one as I wasn't going to rip my whole trans apart (no frikin thanks!) and it was showing no signs of leakage, plus it's not as big of a deal to go back in and replace it if it starts leaking down the road like it is for the rear main seal.

    (The bellow is just as much for my organisation as it is for your information.)

    Seals I ordered but decided not to change as they weren't leaking and were still quite pliable even at 220k miles and I'd already drug this job out too long, needed my truck back.
    (And also because when I split the FJ case I have sitting in my garage to swap input shafts and do the twin stick mods I'll be putting these seals in there.)

    Transfer case output to rear shaft seal: 90311-41007
    Transfer case output to front shaft: 90311-41013
    Transfer case 4WD shifter slider rods seals: 90311-15008 x2
    O-Ring Transmission output shaft to Transfer input shaft: 96721-35063
    Transmission output to transfer input seal 1: 90311-43007
    Transmission output to transfer input seal 2: 90311-43008

    Carrier bearing (Optional, not part of clutch job.)

    This was to reinforce my carrier bearing that I was replacing as mine was shot and I had to take the drive shaft out to pull the trans anyway figured I'd kill two birds. Three if you count I figured since I was pulling a drive shaft U joint apart to get the old carrier bearing off and new one on I may as well replace it too.

    Spicer 5002007 (This is OEM get it off ebay O'Reilly's or something it's x3 the price from the dealer.)
    Spicer U Joint 5-1330-1X (This is OEM get it off ebay O'Reilly's or something it's x3 the price from the dealer.)
    Hysol U-05FL Urethane metal to rubber adhesive (Note this can take two days to reach full cure.) Available on Amazon.
    Sikaflex Polyurethane construction sealant (Note this takes a full week to fully cure) Lowe's, Home depot carries this.

    SST required to push the U joint apart and to re-seat the new caps, I used the large C clamp style "ball joint press" borrowed from O'Reilly's. You give them a deposit and get the whole deposit back when you return the tool.

For example the 6mm allen was only for removing my core shifters short shifter tower.)

    Random updates, I still need to clean up and organize this log.

    Life in general has improved greatly and a lot of nastiness is now behind me.

    Truck build is back on track and we're trying to make up for lost time.

    This past weekend I have:



    Reversed my seat spacers; went from 3/8 up front to 3/4 in the rear, it's counter intuitive but it does seem to help the bad back and keep me from feeling like I'm slipping out of the seat also gives a better angle and purchase on the 3 pedals. It does lift you up higher in general so I'm not sure how I like being closer to the headliner but it's not really an issue, I just like to sit a little lower generally.

    Installed a A129 Duo front and rear dash cam, my Anker (Roav) was a disappointment (crappy mandatory app slow to download couldn't just pop the SD card into a computer just dumb) the battery and touch buttons crapped out. Jury is still out on the 129 but feeling positive so far.

    I picked up a second hand All Pro Off Road rear "high clear" with dual swing outs from [Another member on here] and began some mods that I feel should have been factory.

    Removed the APOR logo as I'm doing plenty of mods to make it my own bumper.

    Fitted rear APOR rear bumper, Phil thanks for the help burning hands on and lifiting and holding the hot heavy mamma jamma while getting it bolted up and struggling with the alignment.

    Cut out spots for the lights (x2 flush floods, x2 standard spots) it ain't too clean but it'll look fine when finished.

    Cut out T slots for Hi-Lift, might clean them up a little bit but overall happy even if they're not as sharp as I envisioned they work, function over form right?

    Confirmed the Hi-Lift T slots work GREAT! On flat ground I can lift high enough to change a tire.

    Made spacers for the APOR rear hitch (Why doesn't it line up from stock? Still investigating this.)

    Put some grip tape on the step areas

    Cut down the extension shaft for the spare tire so I could keep the center cap on

    Installed riv-nuts for the tag as it's a huge pain to get in there and put nuts on the back side.

    Repurposed a hinge to mount the plate and made my own tag light (this is going to be revamped but needed something just to be road legal.)

    Got my cheapo rear camera working again, it's wifi which I don't like as it cross talks and corrupts the signal whenever I'm near a 2.4ghz band.

    Reorganized my toolbox! Woo! Got some pictures I need to find and upload of all the recovery gear that Tetris' in there.

    To come:

    More bumper mods
    Bumper corrosion mitigation

    WINCH INSTAL!!!

    After a service and some clocking.

    More things I need to organize my thoughts on.
