    Funny you mentioned the factory/corporate tech opinion. A negative review was posted on behalf of my experience to michaels fb page and they responded with this. They quickly deleted their response.

    I haven't been notified of a corporate tech coming out to inspect my frame, and on the contrary, when filing my complaint with corporate, they stated the dealer has the final say.




    Now I'm curious on who is responsible for Michael's social media accounts. :popcorn:

    There is a “District Manager” who will come out and review. Unfortunately his job is to remediate their cost as much as possible but seeing the situation, this solution shouldn’t cost them much.

    Well their ears must have been burning, I just got a phone call from their service dept manager, Mr. McDuffie and he agreed with me after reviewing my paperwork and the pictures of my frame that there is INDEED something wrong with my frame and the amount of corrosion is concerning to him. They'll take it back and have a factory service tech from Oregon come and give his .02¢ on the condition of my frame.

    TOK has a nice showroom. :stirthepot:

    I think he's sticking with it. In good times and in bad times. Through thick and thin. Until death do them part.

    I was just fucking around. I will continue to buy 10 year old toyotas instead of spending fuck you money on something I'd take off road.

    Are floor mats a mod?
    He would just ruin that one too
    Does anyone make a truck out of plate iron with a tank chassis? That would be perfect for Bob!

    In the back of your owners manual is the recommended oils, amounts, ect. Section 6 i think it is? Its the specs sections. Unless you are running non-OEM parts that is.


    Front and Rear diffs are 75W-85 GL-5. Transfer case is 75W-90 GL-4 or GL-5. Just buy 75W-90 GL-5 for all and youll be fine.
