    Brought my 2006 to Servco Waipahu and showed them both DTRLs were evenly melted and asked that if it is a factory defect they could remedy. They said that it is the first they heard of it and this was in summer of 2008. Funny that customers are getting the same response.

    I thought the bumper looked a little funny in your last pic, but I couldn't remember if it was like that before or not.

    I had mud in my Alt from the last time, it was only putting out 12.6v so I lightly sprayed water and let it dry, then a half a can of DeoxIT to clean and protect. Back to 13.9 (normal for me).

    If can, can ;)

    so, after the heavy mudding yesterday, I am not able to get my truck started. The battery is good, I've tried to jump it with cables. and cleaned all the connections I can see with automotive electric cleaner. cleaned the starter and alternator. When I try to turn the key, it just makes a audible click noise and nothing more. I'm guessing its my starter. anyone have any ideas????

    Did you take the starter out? It would be a good idea to rebuild it with your kind of mileage. I just helped my friend do his 96 Avalon and the parts were about $30 from Toyota. Basically just new contacts. And we cleaned out the solenoid and lubed it with graphite while we were at it. He was at 110k miles and his starter contacts were only 20% of what they were supposed to be. Only took us two hours to get it out, rebuild it, and get it back in.

    Clicking is almost always a bad battery.

    Turn the key>power flows to the starter relay>relay coil clicks on sending power the starter solenoid>stater solenoid meshes starter gear with flexplate(auto)/flywheel(standard) and engages the starter motor contacts>starter motor draws around 80+amps>battery can't supply enough current>starter relay looses power and clicks off>starter solenoid loses power>high amp draw is now gone>cycles starts over again.

    This all happens in a matter of less than a second leading to a rapid clicking.

    Did it click when you tried to jump it? Or just not do anything?

    Installed:

    OME 90000 fronts with 886x springs
    SS braided lines

    On the long drive home, didn't notice any vibs...It had a slight pull to the right on the highway which is expected, i'll get getting an alignment soon.

    Took initial measurements, but there is a bit of a load, so i'll clear out everything and let it settle before posting the findings.

    :cool:

    Looks like fun. If possible, I always pull people out from the back. If you have a receiver hitch, it has better tie ins to the frame and your putting all the stress from the strap on the stronger side of the gears.

    This ^

    Try putting a volt meter on the battery, it should be around 12V with the engine off. If it is around 10, that is part of your problem. You may have killed the alt and used your battery up driving home. Was your batt light on while driving?

    Haha! That first crossing at Loop road is the best for washing off your truck.

    The one summer I was there, we went up Kaleheo dam rd and my Landcruiser was MUDDY. We stopped there on the way home and drove around in the water and washed it down a little. I still spent the next day cleaning the crap out of it because I had to take it to the pier to ship back here the day after.

    So I have a set of wheels coming in hopefully next month. Anyone know of a good place that can pull the TPMS out of my stock wheels and stick them in my new Konig countersteers? I'm gonna put some duratracs on, can/will goodyear do it when before they mount the tires?
    Thanks :cool:
