    Got aligned this morning. Driving good! Changed front wheel bearing/hubs from 05Taco4x4's press service. Got lawn and garden on my parking brake line that was rubbing my icon rxt hardware.

    Did you not drill out the bolt hole on the OE bracket that holds the brake line? I took a slightly larger drill bit to the hole and it worked just fine.

    Yeah maybe try and let it soak for half hour or so. It doesn't seem to damage the plastic at all, give it a little more time to work. I'd try heating the emblem in the oven next time. The bottle says it cleans ovens best if you preheat to 200 degrees. I'm assuming this logic will apply to stripping chrome as well.

    Interesting approach. I used wire loom but that looks cooler lol. I believe that bolt should be the other way so that the bolt itself is less susceptible to puncture into the gas tank.

    Edit: Then again, should something catch on fire, you’re partially ready with your water hose lol! Sorry sorry

    March Maintenance Madness continues. Flushed radiator and refilled with the pink stuff. Also drain and fill my AT. Had both done at my local dealer cause I'm old and have a sketchy back. Next up is a brake job, probably in June or July.20210326_134925.jpg

    Is there a thread that shows how to swap to a 2015 interior (assuming it isn't just the same mounting points and all)? It looks great

    Cleaned my roof (removed the old sound deadener). Taking measurements to install new stuff.

    It was pretty easy to swap out the radio surround. i would look into using a Hilux 4x4 switch. it works great, but install requires buying a ring from a member here, or trying to make something yourself... i opted to cut up a pvc endpiece and it happened to be perfect!

    Installed my OEM Roof Rack. Wow. 30 min job took almost 2 hours. I finally got everything lined up and bolted down. Thought I had the passenger side done when I heard a clank noise while putting the last part (crossbar) on. The threaded bracket for the bolt that holds the crossbar to the rack fell out of its clip in place. Had to take that whole side back off and restart. Very meticulous and annoying, but I got it. Lol
