    What exactly is meant by OEM? Does that mean specced exactly like the original part?

    By the way, I LOVE this forum! I went by the info. in this forum and changed out my front and rear diff., transfer case, and manual trans. grease last weekend. First time I've ever done this on a vehicle. Anyway, great forum.

    To me this means, Going and buying parts from the dealer....
    Or an online Toyota dealer...

    OEM parts are great... but price them out...

    OEM is the same spec product as what came with your truck when it rolled off the assembly line.

    as with all things, you can find better and worse quality aftermarket parts.
