    well before this weekend my driver window was getting hung up a little when I auto rolled it all the way down. It would clunk about halfway and studder for a second, like the window itself was binding on the track.

    then we go to Cleghorn and bounce around.
    The window is now fixed, smooth operation and I don't have to open up the door :D

    this means YOU MUST GO OFF ROADING to ensure proper operation of your Tacoma

    that is all...

    There is a lot of truth to this.

    Sometimes when something is broken you need to thrash it more to let it know how broken you could REALLY make it.

    That doesn't count. Funny but doesn't count. Mall Crawling is a no-no. :p

    Being on jackstands does not qualify it as being off-road.
























    Come on, you knew that was coming. :D

    Didn't you know...that's the calm before the storm.

    Just pray you didn't jinx yourself and the window stops working completely in the next few days.

    I'm going to defend his comment (it's Christmas, I'm being nice). It technically is off-road seeing as though it's not ON the road.

    Yes, but it is not MOBILE, unless of course jackstand failure occurs.

    It moves from the driveway to the garage. The driveway is gravel so it's almost like a trail.

    I think I'm regretting my decision to be nice.

    I may take that into consideration as it would require a team of oxen/horse to perform such a feat.

    Very true! Most all analog instruments in planes now all have vibrators.
