    Have you recently changed the oil? Did you use a new crush washer?

    Removed my front diff, packaged it in a bucket and gave it a pat on the butt and sent it down to ecgs to get an arb locker added to it.

    Everyone says if you’re gonna get it, get it when you regear to save on labor. While I agree, labor isn’t much at all. They’re only charging me $200 in labor to add the locker, plus $50 in shipping (plus the cost of the locker obviously) Overall not bad at all. I don’t regret not doing it when I did the regear because at the time I didn’t need it.

    Went exploring/camping all weekend. First spot had an amazing view but was ridiculously hot/dusty. Next day was more my style deep in a valley. Some old mining claim with a creek running through it. Someone had even built a creepy goblin shit house complete with open/closed sign. Perfect spot to set up for the night!

    Haven't changed the Diff Oil since I bought it in November. Toyota Dealer I bought it from changed the engine oil a month ago though. But theres no way they touched the diff right?

    No, that’s highly unlikely. Very odd. If it were me I would make sure the plug is snug, clean the area with brake clean and monitor. If it starts seeping again then put a fresh crush washer on there

    I think it would put less strain on the assist with the second one put in, and it also slowed the tailgate coming down nicely. Yes nuts and bolts on the tailgate side as well.

    If I add a new crush washer, do I need to just drain it all and refill? Since I'm losing Oil I can't just drain it and add the same amount of what came out right?

    If you really wanted you could just drain it out into a clean container and put it back in since it’s pretty new.

    Ive seen them, but not tested them. Difficult to say for certain, but from online comparisons to Morimoto in 3rd Gen form and many online photos the beam pattern looks sub-par, too much foreground light and not enough distance light. The peak intensity in the pattern looks way to low, when it should be right up at the cut off.

    Welp just found out I don’t own a socket big enough for it. Looks like it’s a 21 or 21mm, biggest I own is 19. Gotta go to the hardware store in the morning. For now, I cleaned it and put cardboard under to see how bad it is.

    They look fantastic, just way too expensive. They change the whole look of the truck for the better.

    It’s 24mm. The deep impact socket set from harbor freight has one. Pretty inexpensive set. Good luck!
