    Yeah, just ugle behind the cab and there's one soft spot in front of the leaf hanger (which is getting chopped off anyway(

    Sounds about right. Toyota left a lot of nice places for stuff to sit and rot back there.

    Yeah, it is what it is. At least I only have to cut out 2", hell I'm going to chop more of the frame out just to recess in my new leaf hangers. I hammered the rest of the frame pretty good and it seems damn solid, it's not even flakey behind the cab, it's just rust colored. I wish there was a frame boxing kit designed like the DMZ fab one for the second gens, the 1st gens kits are ugly and the fitup is trash.

    Thats about what mine was too, although my spring hangars were fine. I think it got salted early in life and started to rust, but then moved north enough to where there was no salt, and just continued to rust in places where there was dirt and gravel trapped.

    That DMZ kit does look nice and avoids boxing it in so much that it can't be cleaned.

    I got the code a few years ago and it was indeed 51. I haven’t checked since then and today was the first time the light wasn’t on and ABS actually functioned. I’ve played with the ground but that didn’t help. I’m not super worried about it at this point but it’d be nice to have the light off if I go to sell it...

    I had a CEL. Scanned it and it came up as P0031
    Heater control circuit low
    Bank 1 Sensor 1
    Needed to replace my upstream
    O2 sensor
    I have an auto so the
    Part# was 234-9001
    I replaced it and now the
    CEL is off.
    I’ve driven around 200 miles so far and it’s still off.
    Hope that was it

    Good work! I need to do the same thing. Where'd you get the sensor and what was the final cost? Having a hard time throwing a hundred bucks at something so silly, but that's what it's looking like...

    Installed a magnet mount!

    All worked out perfect and feels OEM. Because of the angle and location it looks like the phone is just floating there from the driver's perspective. 10/10 would do again.

    Autozone had it for $138.00 then Auto anything price matched and dropped it to $128.00 so I went for it.
    Them I happened to be on Walmart.com and they had it for $125.64
    But sometimes you never know if it’s fake or not.
    But I was happy with what I paid and what I received
    I have to add
    O’reilly’s was charging $180 for the same Denso part

    I’ve attempted that job but those nuts were so soft they completely rounded out. I gave up on that job...coincidentally my CEL went away shorty after and never came back.

    I got lucky.
    Although I didn’t have an PB Blaster. I ended up spraying WD40 on them a day or two before the job. Lol!
    My truck was originally sold new in North Carolina. But has been a CA truck most of it’s life. I’m the 3rd owner and it has 282,000 miles on it now.
    When I was taking the nuts off. One came right out. The other one was a little more difficult and I ended up taking the whole stud out. But when putting it back in. The stud threaded in and tightened all the way down
