    Installed new driveshaft. Didn’t realize how bad my driveshaft was effecting the ride comfort until I changed it. Night and day difference. Also got the truck realigned. . Will have to shave cv cups down to take advantage. Truck also sits about level not maybe a slight rake. Pretty happy with how the truck is now. Drives so much better.

    Not today, but last week. DIY oil change. I have done this before but this time, I failed to notice the build up of drain plug washers. They were stuck to the lower pan and I failed to see them "in the dark". And I failed to noticed them during the other oil changes. Maybe 4 or 5 of them. Funny, right? Well - while tightening the drain plug, I over torqued and stripped/cross-threaded the plug. As I removed the plug, all of the crush washers fell off. What an idiot. But - nothing some humility and some money couldn't fix. New lower oil pan and drain plug. Considering a Fumoto, but that is on another TW thread. The best lessons in life are the tough/very painful ones - you never forget those. OK - let the TW trolls start trolling. I am looking forward to some interesting memes and gifs.

    Good on ya for being able to laugh at yourself.

    I looked and don't see your Fumoto thread, so commenting here. Do eet. Absolute no brainer and makes oil changes even easier than they usually are on these 2.5's. I went with this version. allows you to position the flow where you like, low profile. 3 years and 90K. Perfection.

    that's a cool design. I'm not sure I buy the 'better' idea....I'd agree with 'cool other'. For a fleet where maintenance is nearly daily and the tool is in constant use, I can see it.
    You need additional accessories to utilize it. If you lose/temporarily misplace the attachment, how do you drain the oil?

    Why go lower profile when I already have to destroy the frame crossmember by a 1/2" to get to the Fumoto?

    Just completed my FJ case swap recently I really wish I did it a long time ago instead of fighting all of the 4wd issues like I was before! its really a pretty easy process if your a little handy and have a couple of extra hands around.

    I never lost it so not an issue for me lol. It is capped when your not using it as well so no crud gets in there. I put the tool in same spot. every time before and after use. I pretty sure there is a puch valve that you could release with a screw driver if you had to change oil or just remove attachment all together like stock. I like the design better.

    I agree it's tight. Super clean and very low profile. I've got 4 bikes and 4 cars I maintain...I'd likely be that guy....

    to the point...there's options to dropping a bolt with a crush washer every 5k! Pick one!

    The SB cold air intake after 3 fillips has increased airflow to the engine allowing increased horsepower and Miles per Gallon and of course the induction noise

    Highly rec a fumoto! I just pop the drain & filter, wash truck, new oil & filter, and you're good to go! Takes about 15 minutes each time without rushing

    If anyone is looking for a good quality remote starter then BestBuy has one for $120 installed (reg price is $320). Have had same one on wifes suv for over 2 years with zero problems and does work with factory remotes. Bought 2 $300 popular brands for wife and had to return both. Ordered one for daughters new 2022 RAV4 because Toyota wants her to pay a subscription to use the factory remote. Ordered one for my 2008 Taco and may order one for sons 2012 Taco. At $120 it is unbeatable and a no-brainer. Since I am a totaltech member I used my rewards and only paid $96 total with tax installed for my Taco. Just have to make the installation appointment. Brand is Compustar. Model is RS1B-DC3. Read the reviews at BestBuy.com. I know it works well on our 2016 Escape and reviewers say it works great on 2nd and 3rd gen Tacomas. Yes $120 total with FREE installation.
