    I think it should be noted that Toyota may have the wrong "Rear Diff" Diagrams in the FSM - or at least the Page Titles might be wrong.

    DF-41 & DF-42 are supposedly for the "Non E-Locker" (open) Rear diff, but the diagrams and layout look like the E-Locker diff.

    Same with DF-68, DF-69, & DF-70. Marked as "w/ Differential Lock", but they look like the Open Diff (to me anyway).

    Can anyone verify this? I will switch the descriptions around if that's the case.

    Instead of having the pictures displayed like that, it would be better to have url links. I say that for two reasons:
    1. Searching
    2. Bandwidth: If you are out on cell coverage, those pics are going to eat up your phone plan.

    Otherwise, nice!

    That's why I added the fancy PDF with linked Table of Contents, take it with you anywhere :D

    I use the Ctrl+F Search function a lot as well, so that could be useful to quickly find the Category you're looking for in the OP :D

    I think the pics have a total size of 80Mb, so they're not too bad on bandwidth.

    I know this is going to make me sound like a nerdy butthole, but please bear with me - you can always drive over to my house and poo in my yard. :p

    I'm just saying that if you just used URL links, the page would load quicker.

    I was thinking about data plans and "oops, forgot to download, now I'm on 3G and I need it".
    Using this calculator and assuming 3G is going to be 1.544Mbps,
    -To load the page (19.8MB) that's about 1 minute 40 seconds.
    -If I want the PDF as well, it's 15MB, so another 1 minute 15 seconds.

    This is under ideal conditions. 3G can be anywhere from 600k to 1.4Mbps (not counting bursts), not counting any server load slowing things down.

    If you changed to hyperlinked pictures, the page is down around 2MB and the largest picture is about 200k. If I only wanted torque information on the timing chain assembly, I could load the page over 3G in about 10 seconds, click the link for 'engine' or whatever, and pull down an image in 2 more seconds. Since I'm only getting the information I'm interested in, user efficiency goes up, and download time is increased 88%

    Lol, nerdy butthole. Not at all man, I appreciate the feedback...I might call you later to make sure I understand you correctly about linking the pics.

    Thanks Mike!

    Awesome post! I will have to bookmark it on my ipad for future local meets.

    One note though. The torque specification for the rear suspension u bolt nut is transposed (verified). The manual states 37 ftlbs and it is actually 73 ftlbs.

    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    Thanks Ben and Derek. Great resources. I'll be using these for sure.

    I just finished the teardown and rebuild of my suspension and I printed out all the relevant diagrams that I would need. It made it very handy for final tightening. If I could give Benson X another rep I would, but I have to spread it around apparently.
