    Did they tell you why? When I took my case # and TSB printout to them they didn't even bat an eye.

    They told since I just went over 36k they it was out of warranty. Reno toyota sucks, when I bought the dame truck it was a huge pain. Came really close to going to another toyota dealer.

    Its a bummer, oh well.

    I agree. I would have gone elsewhere but they were the only ones that had a 4Banger 4x4 5Speed AC.

    Huh, I've had no issues with them. Tomorrow I'm in there for my squeeky blower motor, we'll see if I continue to not have issues with them (fingers crossed).

    Free service is the only thing I've taken it there for. 2+ hours each time with an appointment for an oil change!

    Best of luck, I dislike them quite a bit.

    Got an email from Dsm saying the 5100s are on back order, trying to line up some used icon rear resi shocks on here Atm.

    Hey Sloan, it's the guy from Reddit. :spy: Did you buy the one-piece rear window or do the base ones come with that?

    I wish I could have your BHLM...
