    I would forget to disable that enough times, startling myself fully awake, that I could probably give up coffee in the morning. I may have to clean my seats though. :poking:

    Give it the beans. And if you’re not sure about the puddles depth get out and check it first.

    Unless you have a dif breather or plan on changing your fluid when you get home, I would avoid the puddles as best you can.

    Water crossings in general do nothing good for your vehicle.

    So as a matter of fact, mine ARB breather kit showed up yesterday. I was going to say screw it and go out today but thanks for the info, I got it installed today, we'll be trying it out tomorrow!

Old solenoid didn’t respond to 12 volts. Definitely burnt up that fluid with the bad solenoid. Was dark as shit but I was at about 15k since last drain and fill. What came first the chicken or the egg lol?

    Anyways trucks shifting smoother than it ever has in my ownership. Hopefully it holds up. One note those damn pan bolts didn’t want to torque perfect even cross pattern. I snapped one and luckily extracted without ducking up the threads. Hopefully this damn truck stays healthy for a little while :fingerscrossed::ballchain:

    I’ve also had mine freeze up on me and make similar sounds, they went away after slowly driving forward and backward and pulling the ebreak to come to a complete stop

    There was a member on TW who offers free vin checks but I can’t find his thread now. Anyone got a link?
    Looking to pick up a vehicle at auction next week...

    Does anyone want a truck cover? I have one I’m parting with. Fits camper shells.

    I am new to the taco world. Out on the Olympic Peninsula. Have a 2019 AT OR stock. Looking for any and all information that I should know about. I have started doing research regarding upgrading taco, but no idea what is worth it, what items have held up to the test of time, and so on. The vast knowledge on this site and from the members would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome! I'm pretty new myself so I don't think I could impart a lot of knowledge, I will tell you, there's a bunch of super helpful, smart folks on this site. One anecdote, I have already ended up replacing something I bought because I was too excited to buy shiny stuff instead of figuring out what I actually needed :)

    I am OCD when it comes to buying stuff. I do research, and more research. I am an avid hiker and mountaineer. So, I spend most nights researching gear to ensure that I wont end up in the middle of BFE with broken gear, having to use SAT phone calling my ranger friends to come bail me out, and be the butt of the jokes for the next month.

    Leaking radiator? Or leaking hoses/lines somewhere? Leaking WP? Leaking block drains?
    Does your truck make white smoke?
