    I have an 09 reg cab, sunday I was out wheeling and climbing hills, after going up a steep section with a nice rock section at the top, i heard a loud bang sound. After getting on flat ground and getting out of four low my wife said that she heard a strange rattle. I just ignored it until today, and I tracked it down. If any of you guys experience this do as I did and remove all bolts from the t case skid plate and add more lock tight and re tourqe I had already lost one bolt and it was flopping off of the transfer case. I am going to do the same with all of the other plates and heat shields, you would think toyota would at least add lock tight to these places.

    Use Blue, or else next time you gotta remove it to get at something else to fix something else, you gonna be sorry.

    Good point, that red stuff would be a pain in the ass to remove.

    only way it to apply heat... such as a blowtorch or something to break the adhesive, I had to do it and trust me, it is not fun.
