    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.

    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

    Limited slip additive is in the oil, so you do not need to add any additional. If you do, no harm, no foul - the diff gears won't care. Only your wallet will.

    Valvoline oil is fine, as is Lucas (recommended by ECGS.) Stick with name brands of oil as opposed to parts store brands (unless you can be certain who made it.) Toyota brand is fine as well, albeit more expensive.
