    Thanks! Funny enough, after these pictures, I'm waffling more on painting them. I ultimately want the TRD SEMA wheels in grey, but I figured I would give dipping a try before I even think about dropping +$1k on wheels.

    ~10,500 miles. (Dealer just did the 10k):
    Notes:
    - #1 Gear oil stinks, and 100% chance you will make a mess.
    - All fluid levels seemed fine, clearly dealer had just checked and toped off the rear diff. The others, I'm not so sure.
    - F&R Diff fluid were nasty (Especially the front and I've never really 4-wheeled this truck)
    - The M/T crush washers were dirt cheap at dealer ($1.50) vs Amazon
    - Toyota T/C fluid was only $33 on-line (Vs ~$50 at the dealer)
    - Amazon pump attached to the FOMOCO bottle and worked ok for M/T (Just lots of pumping)
    - Motul built in funnel worked perfect for rear diff (Too short for the front. could have clamped on some hose to extend, but just reused the M/T set-up)
    - T/C fluid comes in 1L CAN. It was exactly enough. I poured it into a Dollar-Store catsup bottle with 3/8" tubing, squeezed right in.

    Little tree air fresheners. Clazzio black leather seat covers.
    Finally got around to mounting my Krazy Beaver shovel! Used a rubber stop, bolts few washers and a couple Quick Fists.
    It's mounted on the inside channel of my RCI BedRack. Really like how it turned out. Kind of out of sight out of mind.

    Thanks! The only thing between the boot and ball is a lock nut and a rubber grommet that keeps the boot down. Other than that the shifter itself is exposed but it doesn't look bad, it's powdercoated black.

    I have read the posts after this and just adding some information I learned from multiple sources, take it as you wish. The correct transfer case fluid replacement according to toyota is LF. There are some knowledgeable people who believe that using LT or GL-5 gear oil will cause damage to the soft metal bushings (copper, brass) used in the synchros, because of high phosphate levels in those oils. They only replacement other than Toyotas that I could find was royal Purples Synchromax.
    Royal Purple list it in their specs. I have used it for 30k miles in all types of conditions. From blizzards in New England to high heat 4wheeling in the low deserts of California. No problems.
    Brief disclaimer: I do not work for Royal Purple. I am not a certified mechanic. There is some discussions that replacing the transfer case fluid with anything but Toyota LF voids the warranty. When I went into a dealership in New England and asked for LF fluid the parts guy treated me like I was an idiot and told me they use 90w gear oil out of a barrel, so there is that.

    Luckily I am taking it to the dealer to have the toytec suspension re-torqued. But yeah, I expect them to keep her for the week. Hopefully not too long since I have to drive across PA next weekend.

    Mine was not that bad so when I took mine in for the recall they just torqued the bolts and sent me on my way.
