    Can someone help me out really quick, I was wondering if I am going to replace the thermostat, does it have to be the whole thermostat housing replaced or can I just replace the thermo itself and keep the stock housing?

    If you can find this stuff, I've had luck at carpet supply warehouses, it'll glue water to oil I swear. That stuff is ridiculous https://www.amazon.ca/Wolf-Grip-Hi-Temp-Aerosol-Adhesive/dp/B07QY39TWC

    How often you change the oil? I just got a DD and the Tacoma sits a large majority of the time. Started to question whether I should start changing oil by time rather than mileage

    I’ve been getting a vibration around 60-70mph, and I think I may have found the cause. While under the truck doing an oil change, I grabbed one of the front axles and it moved much more than I think it should. I checked both, and each one moved at the differential end. My first thought is that it might be bad bearings, but I don’t know enough to be sure about the issue. I’m going to look for a shop that can handle 4WD diffs and front ends, but I could use some guidance about how much (if any) slop, the front axles should have. TIA

    Went home for lunch so I could grab my step stool and grease for the upper control arms.
    I was going to replace the valve cover gasket and lube the upper arms after work today.

    After stopping at my house, I went to my new job that I haven't started yet (had to sign some papers) to pick up a drug test form.
    Went to the drug test site today after work instead of doing my truck, but they stopped testing at 3:00 and I got there at 3:30.
    Now I have to go tomorrow and another day I won't be able to work on my truck.

    Maybe Wednesday?

    Thinking I can just add a way to pull flap in more twds fender. There is space between too...

    Also wanted to add that a buddy of mine it getting me a paint marker that I can touch up the "4WD" on the flaps w/
