    I only replaced the stock bracket with the single BulletProof Fab bracket. I figured if I use it one time then it is worth the cost. The one from the factory just didn't seem worthy of a 1,000 pound pull much less a several thousand pound pull.

    Usually this type of problem is caused by a leaking ARB Diff. I'd pull the filter and rubber band a balloon to the vent hose and activate the ARB. See if the balloon fills, or not...

    The stock breather/valve is just that, a valve. The diff gets warm, the air inside expands, the valve opens, the pressure is released. The diff gets dunked, it cools off the valve closes and a vacuum is created in the diff. Water is then drawn in past a dirty valve that doesn't close all the way or one of the seals (which are designed to keep fluid IN the diff) at the axles or the drive shaft. Putting a stock style breather/vent at the end of a hose just moves the problem.

    On my 89 Toyota pick-up and my 06 TRD Tacoma I ran a hose with a vent/filter that was open all the time allowing air to flow both ways freely. On my FJ I ran a hose into the jack compartment behind the L/R wheel well. I put a small K&N Filter on the end of the hose. Never smelled gear oil in the cabin. Never had water in the diff. Never had oil come out the hose. I haven't done this mod on my Tacoma yet. But, it will get the same filter mounted behind a tail light.

    This is the next mod I am doing. Just ordered these two part today.

    90404-51319
    90930-03136

    One is a union (open), and the other is the same 2 way breather that is on the front of 3rd gens.

    Got the part numbers from the thread on this mod.

    The washers were $0.17 each. The steel space few dollars. Since I was there I decided to get new screws and added lock washers. The rear long screw was 2.5 inches and was too long so I bought 2 inch screws and used the same spacer and washers in the front and they fit much better.CC0C4316-F7A5-4D50-81DA-0FE4F2BB2D5A.jpgE16343B7-AD4F-44F4-9A8E-64F28C10BFAC.jpg
    The screws that your given are far too big in term of the grabbing thread. I got some finer thread screws.

    They have, I’ll try to find the info. It was someone in TW... I bought one but ended up putting a matte tint on instead.

    EDIT... @TwinTaco31719 shoot this guy an email @rrentrop and ask about the tss T decal. He can do most colours...

    Installed demon brackets for adding shackles. Easy and fun to do.

    Wondering if you painted the beadlock rings on your wheels or if you purchased them like that. Looks good

    You could always just stow the shackles until they are needed. I'm thinking of doing this. My shackles scraped recently when driving down a washout. Approach angle isn't quite as good. The demon bracket themselves are tucked up pretty good.
