    On today’s episode of “why did I wait so long to do this?”. The ac drain mod. It took less than half an hour and that includes the time it took to pick up the parts from the auto parts store. 5/8” ID hose and a couple of clamps and that’s it. $7 in parts.

    Hey I was just about to do this on my truck. The Texas heat has me running my AC way to high that what I’m normally use to in Colorado!

    If you use the heater hose like I did, I recommend some WD40 to lube it up. It's a tight fit to push it on since it's so stiff.

    I did a more thorough brake bleeding today with a vacuum bleeder. My brakes were a little squishier than usual after my debacle at Chris’s, even after fixing the line and bleeding that corner. I took the time to run about half of a gallon through the truck and it’s back to its normal, slightly squishy self. I’ll adjust the drums before my trip this weekend which will tighten up pedal feel a bit as well.

    I used a long fishtank air hose when troubleshooting brakes on a Honda once. Just run the hose from bleeder valve all the way to the reservoir so you don't waste fluid trying to chase air bubbles. Turned out to be a poorly repaired abs wire making the light come on intermittently. Glad I didn't waste gallons of fluid figuring that out. :anonymous:

    As per usual, this is snowballing and now I'm looking at putting 4runner brakes up front as well as a sequoia master cylinder.

    Would the larger calipers for the 338mm rotors get that banjo closer or further to where it hit the LT kit?

    I haven't a clue. If I were to go down this path, the brakes would take priority and then I do what's necessary to not lose braking function, i.e. limit steering, cut away tabs on the LCA, etc.

    Definitely not 40s but 37s are never off the table. I would just need to beef up braking and steering first.
