    You guys do any work to the trucks this long weekend? First I changed my spark plugs (6 densos). 2 things, first it was pretty easy, these trucks are not bad to work on, second, I had one of the trucks with 3 densos and 3 NGKs, its weird. I then got rid of the pre filter (6 plastic rivets) and rotated the tires. wasnt bad:D

    I didn't work on mine, but helped two friends with their non-toyotas. :D All wheel bearing issues, one front & one rear. Makes me glad my truck is new! I think I'm gonna extend my diff breather, I use to always on my older toyotas. Will have to do a search here. Thanks for the reminder.

    Didn't any work ON the truck, but did some work WITH the truck. :D Hauled at least 1,000 lbs of logs to a buddy's house for him to cut and split for fire wood. He was having a party, invited us, and offered to trade some wood for an extra dehydrator he found in a closet. lol So now we're gonna be making our own beef jerky and a few other things. Maybe try some deer jerky once we get more meat. I was about a 1/4" off the bump stops, and that's more than when I had 1600lbs of wood pellets in the bed.

    I was hoping to have new tires on by this weekend, but they didn't arrive in time. :( Still at the FedEx depot. Hopefully they'll be here tomorrow and I can have the wife take it to our guy down the road to be put on.

    4 bangers are coil packs too...

    I don't think there is a car made today that still uses plugs.

    I put in the Redline Tuning struts I bought through the group buy here. Took all of 15 minutes to do.

    I have pics up at Toyota Nation and will add them here in a day or so. Work is getting in the way of fun.

    If you want, return the pop rivet gun. There is plenty of room to use a sheet metal screw.
