    Mine doesn't take it either. I believe 09 and newer doesn't need the additive. I used Lucas oil myself.

    Yes that is common and even if a truck doesn't need it, it's still safe to add. That will suffice and you don't need any extra additive.

    I highly highly recommend OEM.

    My AC is doing the "I only like to go on HIGH" thing. I checked out the harness and it does have a little browning to it.

    Is that covered under the TSB? My truck is a 2013.

    My 2013 did that. Relay went bad. It was covered only under my extended warranty. It still acts up. In fact I need to take it back in because it is now a 3 speed and not a 4 speed fan. No variation between first and second setting. I was told it’s a common problem.

    So no worries if I already added the additive? Just don't want something terrible to happen....

    Replaced my spark plugs. Around 111,000 miles (179,000 kms).
    Looks like the dealership (or previous owner) replaced them once because they are all Denso.
    Everything seems normal to me. Unless someone thinks different?

    If it's not covered it is an easy fix. All you need is a 5.5mm socket, wire strippers and the kit comes with crimps. Only takes about 30 minutes.

    Mine just went out a month ago.

    Yeah Looks like an easy fix! I just want Toyota to do it. My entire HVAC system blew out under warranty about 2 years ago and they replaced it. Hopefully they'll do this. I'd prefer them do it because it involves splicing and soldering. Easy enough but they'll be peace of mind if it's "certified" ya know?

    Charcoal canister part number is: 77740-04020. It's under the bed.

    Drivers side of the engine?

    I bought a Dobinson's snorkel. Didn't want to spend the cash on an ARB one.

    Drained, filled, additive, and new washers. Pretty sure the mini-heart attack I gave myself over the past 24 hours is entirely from just an old crush washer.

    Did you clean up the diff once you were done so you can tell if it continues?

    Rubbed it down with TuboTowels. Gonna grab some brake cleaner in the morning to really degrease and clean it. For now, I should be able to tell if it continues overnight.

    Did you build the enclosure? Where did you place the sub?
    I installed a 10TW1 last year and made the enclosure to fit behind the back seat.

    So close and yet so far. Couldn’t find someone to help me put it on. Good enough for now. Time for a drink:proposetoast:

    Installed front coils and rear shocks today on my 2012 4x4 from a 2020 off road Tacoma.

    really love the ride now compared to the factory ones. Not sure if I’ll still add the addaleaf or not. It’s super level now.

    raised it about 1.75in in the front and an inch in the back roughly

    Plastics distribution place (piedmont plastics) had an off cut that was pretty much the perfect size. I used 1/4” ABS because it was textured, black and supposedly better in UV light than HDPE
