    Good think you have access to an industrial sewing machine.

    All done. Crawled under the truck to put it in and noticed some fluid where the t case and trans meet. I cleaned it up but I may be dropping the case again. at least now everything was freshly removed so doing it again won’t be very hard.

    This may be a dumb question, but what U-joints did you go with?

    Gonna need even more soon. Confirmed there is fluid coming from where the trans and t case meet. Doesn’t smell like gear oil so probably a transmission output shaft seal. Gonna have to drop the case again.

    This looks just like a cv diff seal. Just pull out the old and put in the new. Should be easy enough.

    lol I'm a dumbass and don't even know my transmission code. That's for the 5 speed. I can't find a part number for the 6 speed and it's also not in the FSM I zoomed in on one of my previous pics and it looks like there's a cover and indeed a leak. I wonder if toyota uses a paper gasket or FIPG there. Hopefully I'll have time to drop the case again tomorrow and see.

    Now I feel like I'm talking to myself. Anyways, I found what I was looking for. No mention of a seal so probably something I can just use RTV on.

    You need a fansonly account for the paint action. I would pay to see you go to town with a roller & black paint bucket.

    Jaime, wait until you see what I have in store for my lawn. I should be getting a lawn striper soon and it'll set me above all the neighbors. I will then claim ownership of the HOA.

    That's no leak, she's just happy to have you giving her so much attention.

    I did just have a lightbulb go off. What if it wasn't a leak? The truck was at an incline, nose up, when I removed the t case. A little oil could have just seeped out when I pulled the transfer case, much like how you lose some oil when you remove a CV. I'm gonna wait and see if it continues before dropping the t case again.
