    Greased the driveshaft and installed Skid Row Off Road IFS and transmission skid plates. There's a bit of a lip between the IFS and transmission skid which I can imagine being problematic if backing up over an obstacle. Do I need to crank on those bolts more or is this ok?

    You can use a brake pedal spring from the dealer for like $6 and it’s able to handle constant use.

    Yeah, i agree, I don't know why Skid Row provided such long bolts but they're definitely the right ones.

    I don’t know if you be able to tighten them up enough to get the gap smaller or gone, probably run out of space for the bolt to go

    Remove the bolts behind the transmission, then tighten the bolts where they join together. Cut if too long. Then put the bolts in behind the tranny.

    Just 3 tons of fun!!!

    20 ton harbor frieght press.

    My neighbor turned a plate for me that supports the entire bearing when the hub is being pressed through. It also presses the entire bearing on the way out.

    Screenshot_20210726-133119_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20210726-133053_Video Editor.jpg

    I just use one of the large sleaves from the ball joint press, I have, to make up the difference in depth. (This avoids the problem Timmy has with things getting stuck)

    To press the bearing , I have a 1/2 inch thick plate that presses it in flush with outer rim, then I use an old bearing to press it the rest of the way home, past the groove for the c-clip.

    thanks gents! Also Ben what radiator have you used? I know you’ve replaced it like 2 or 3 times. I’m getting rid of the champion one since so many people have had issues and I’m already taking it out for the TB

    Thanks! I’ll read thru that tomorrow

    Got together with Zane this past weekend to spice things up. Thanks for the hospitality man! :hattip:

    Last winter I had the opportunity to pick up these items. Now it was time to begin the process of getting them ready for use.

    Same, this and the TYC 1985 (likely from the same place) have served me well

    Always good to see you man! And fun to work on the RedHead too. Thanks for making those bomb tacos! How's that idle looking after the new IAC?

    His couldn't seem to decide what it wanted to do. Sometimes it would cold start but be already at warmed up idle. Sometimes it would idle high when warmed up sometimes it would be normal and other times it would be so low it threatened to stall

    So far this IAC is an improvement. In the conditions I've encountered so far with it, the idle is no longer staying high. Comes down to where is should be sooner.

    The one I removed seemed slow to respond to changing conditions. I would describe it as lazy behavior. Sometimes it would be fine, at other times not so much. They get gummed up and cleaning out the gunk usually fucks them up thoroughly. Fortunately Zane had a couple of spare TBs so I stole one from him and used it's IAC. This one is not as 'lazy', and is able to control the idle better.

    Timmy has a video on all this, but I think even he fucked his when he cleaned it.

    I'm thinking they left em long to make install easier. There's plenty of room there for long bolts.

    Ok so from what I’ve heard, a new pack of leaf springs should get rid of axle wrap.. am I wrong? I installed the full OME kit last September with the Dakar’s without AAL and I feel like the axle wrap hasn’t changed much.

    You can also use a clutch pedal return spring from a 4-cylinder Tacoma.
