    Mine has 9, soon to be 13. Aftermarket UCAs and LCAs have 2 per arm.

    Plus the 5 on the front and rear shaft.

    Edit: What he said ^^^

    Not sure but definitely check your catalytic converter heat shield. Know to rattle. I would take it off and get new bolts and put it back on. Fixed my rattle

    Today I finished installing a cheap-o grille. Last week was headlights. Swung by the dealership and grabbed rotors, pads, plugs and some misc. fasteners that had fallen out.

    This is all the consequence of hitting 300K and having some sort of truck life crisis. I might even start washing it now.

    Put in a Bosch 94R AGM battery today to power the fridge. Fits perfect to replace the 27F that was there.

    Not sure, but I paid $118 for this one through work. The Northstar is $400 so I didn't look at it.

    Dropped my 2010 AC off at the dealership for frame replacement. Having them do spark plugs and a new battery as well. My battery has been giving me trouble in the cold, but hey, it's lasted 9+ years in this vehicle so it doesn't owe me a thing. The dealership sent me over to Enterprise and they gave me a 2019 Dodge 1500 5.7L for the week. A little odd that Toyota wouldn't have a 2019 Tacoma for me to drive in the meantime. You'd think they'd want to keep me brand loyal. I'll report back on Friday when I pick her up. Hoping they reassemble everything properly.

    welp installed it yesterday but I finally got to put some miles on it today.

    I installed the URD short shifter for my 2011 2.7 4x4. The difference is pretty crazy the shift from 1st-2nd was like going from 1st-N with stock. I’m also not reaching for the glove box to get in 5th anymore which is awesome.

    Required tools along with some beverages.

    And of course some food curtesy of my GF. She loves me sometimes.
