    Did you have to drop any trans parts? or steering rack?

    Just unbolt the pan and wiggle out?

    As best I can remember. There was a lot of wiggling involved. Why I have a gasket now whenever I try to do it again.

    Yea, I was told you had to drop the front diff assembly to get it out. I have the 4 cyl also, shoot a video if you get around to it anytime soon.

    I recently changed my clutch/flywheel/RMS and dropped the oil pan to redo the gasket while at it. It definitely requires dropping the front diff to do it correctly, without scrapin the RTV off when putting the pan back on.

    Your paint looks immaculate for a 1999. My roof and hood are shot.

    I still question the effort to reseal the oil pan gasket right now. I have bigger fish to fry... The next things are:
    - replacing the axle boots (leaking/ torn throwing grease everywhere)
    - repacking the hubs
    - changing rear diff oil, changing front diff oil, maybe change transfer case oil

    My paint is slowly worsening. The hood is peeling like crazy now. Not sure what to do to stop it. Also, my valve cover paint job has chipped away. Nice while it lasted... I did not prime properly.IMG_3663.jpgIMG_3666.jpgIMG_3656.jpgIMG_3664.jpg

    At 222,000 Miles changed the following items, aside from belts these were all original parts.

    - Radiator (OEM Toyota 16410-0C032 , manual trans specific) - found crack in original

    - Thermostat Gasket (OEM Toyota 16325-76010)
    - water inlet at thermostat (broke the original by over tightening the nuts) (OEM Toyota 16321-0W010)
    - Lower Radiator Hose (OEM Toyota 165720C021)
    - water pump (OEM Toyota 161007-944583)
    - water pump gasket (OEM Toyota 1612475030) **note: water pump above comes with water pump gasket**
    - PS adjust pulley - Dorman on Amazon (419-627)
