    Went to my buddy's last week to cut a fallen tree for fire wood, turns out it's Walnut. So Now I got 4 slugs of walnut, maybe 12-15" in diameter if I had to guess. And a bunch I cut in quarters before I realized what it was. Dunno if its worth anything to anyone or if I can do anything with it. I'm not much of a woodworker.

    Find a local guy with a woodmizer portable sawmill. Sell it to him. He will love you long time.
    The tree ranges from $5- $10 per board foot, although it can cost more depending on other factors. In most cases, your 20-inch tree can fetch you $700- $800. You should be able to get $200-$250 as raw log.

    I'm thinking about making my wife some 1" rounds, and maybe a bowl or something out of one.

    @hiPSI After seeing the hyd fluid and front axle oil, I'm thinking I should do the diffs and transfer case on the taco. Any recommendations for transfer case oil?

    Here's the OEM on Amazon :eek::eek::eek:

    Glad to see they have payment plans!

    The 3ed gen transfer case specification is for the 75W single grade transfer gear oil.
    The use of 75W-90 has been hotly debated on the forum.

    There are two obvious takeaways here:
    1) Toyota did specify that oil, seeing as they have the engineers one can assume it was for a particular reason -- a reason that nobody here has gotten a direct answer from Toyota.
    There is however a lot of "...well, I always..." :facepalm:

    2) You are also free to use whatever product you please.

    If you do some shopping you can get the OEM oil for way less than the AMZ price, usually around $65. The transfer case service will use exactly the 1 liter can.

    Yeah, I noted the difference in the spec, hence my question. I realize Amazon pricing is sometimes out to lunch, and I surely hope I can find it for less than $225 for a litre, but even half that is shocking. With all the transfer cases in the world, there's gotta be a reasonable alternative. :notsure:
