    I would try first to clean your throttle body and IAC valve. And also your MAF. maybe also run some fuel injector cleaner through your tank. These things seem to cure my rough idle.

    also....look on top of the throttle body................not sure about your truck, but there may be a plate with 4 screws holding it on. take them off and clean those vent holes out with intake cleaner as well. also....i'd seafoam the motor.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    X3!
    And might be time for a spark plug change, fuel filter change.

    yea i reckon so... it just confused me because it only did it after i ran it an hour or so for example i drive it to my grandmothers about 45 miles one way and when i pulled in her drive way and it started so i put it in park and got out walked around to the exhaust because my autotech teacher taught me to hold a dollar bill up to the muffler and if it gets sucked up to the pipe its missing so i held a dollar up to it and sure enough it got sucked up to the pipe. so i walked around and put it in reverse and it went away after i backed up and few feet i stopped again and it started back. also when i turned my ac on it smoothed out.

    alright. it would be nice to ride trials with a fellow toyota owner instead of running with z71's
