    Glad I caught it in time the bolt was about halfway out. I threw some locktite on there to make sure it doesn’t happen again

    Ok this is perfect! It is almost as good as the artificial phallic device that was installed on the gear shifter of James May's buggie in The Grand Tour - Morocco here .

    Since 2012, the crew I run with has this "hot potato" type of thing where we hide a Tijuana Mama (a spiced pickled meat sausage) somewhere on the vehicle.
    As it is found and surreptitiously transferred to another vehicle, the package can develop pin holes.
    Suggested hidden locations are, but not limited to:
    - gas tank cover (open the cover, plop out goes the weiner) This is particularly humorous in Oregon - "sir, your weiner dropped on the ground"
    - leaf springs via zip ties
    - seat adjuster via zip ties
    - just on the seat so when ya jump in, there is a bit of a surprise when you sit down.
    - spare tire(s)
    - base of the CB antenna
    - inside seat slider rails (this only worked on a duramax)
    - broken tail light housing
    - winch hause opening

    This is similar to @Blackdawg 's plastic kazoo trick

    If they were like $4-5 I probably would have ordered some and gotten my friends with it. I find that to be hilarious

    So I was hearing a really bad squeaking sound coming from the center of the truck when it was in reverse with the gas pressed I assume it’s the U joint so I threw a glob of grease on each one and the noise stopped should I start getting my self prepared to replace these soon or is it possible the noise was caused by some debris stuck in the joint and it got cycled out and is fine now?

    Drive it around and see if the noise comes back. You can always crawl under there and see if there is any excess movement. Most likely it really needed grease.

    Surprised Toyota didn’t add any zerk fittings seems like a part that needs regular maintenance

    Drunk shopping led to a waterport purchase. I'd been waiting for it to go on sale at Costco, but finally gave in. My wife asked if she could wash her hair with it on camping trips , so I guess she approves.

    Waterports are great esp if you have kids and/or dogs. Filthy animals

    Had mine for a year and still haven’t really used it... need to fill it up before trips but then I cannot find all the parts when I need them.

    Yeah, I have both. It'll also be nice after hiking/running on muddy trails, which is all of them right now.

    Yeah they hate it when you go back to work and don't keep doing your weekly reporting. They got all over me about that a few years back. My employer had to send in a notice that I was back to work, and they informed me that even though I am back to work, I need to keep reporting each week. If for some reason I needed to go back on unemployment that same year, it would be a even bigger shit show getting it again.

    The noise is probably going to keep coming around and I'm betting the factory grease has pretty much dried up. I wouldn't say it's going to fail tomorrow but eventually you'll start to feel some slop or hear other noises. More than likely a needle bearing between the reunion and the cap has become out of round/flat on one side and not rolling as it should. Eventually there won't be more than a handful left as the rest will start to do the same thing and grind themselves into dust.

    Not sure why but I've read that some trucks rolled off the factory line with ujoints that had grease fittings and others didn't. I can't recall if it was something to do with the plant of manufacturer or just what spicer had available to keep toyotas production online. Does your front drive shaft have grease fittings?

    Front does but the other doesn’t suprisingly, I guess I’ll just grease them up every 3000 miles ish and inspect them and if it becomes a problem then replace all of them with aftermarket ones that have zerks

    I will say that swapping them out after the drivelines out isn’t too bad ideally a vice, socket and hammer but can make due with just the latter two. If you do the front it can be a PIA though. Just make sure you mark the position of the driveline on the driveline itself and the yolk. As long as no needles fall in the caps when installing the new ujoints it’s not too bad. I think I got all the spicer u joints off Amazon for a reasonable price. So if you had a day and all of the other stuff above you can just replace them too. Though only if it’s necessary obviously.

    Stuff and things... maybe a little rust
    Got the TC Cam Tabs done, new LCAs and new hub assemblies installed towards the end of the week. After an alignment Thursday and getting the truck back on the road I can safely say the drivers side wheel bearing was my issue, no more noise at 55-60mph now. I should actually be good to go for snow wheeling this year if we actually get any.
