    So got pretty lucky these past couple of days. Finally sold some of my old 4th gen 4r parts can now add those funds to this build and start progressing quicker. Didn't expect to get either of these things this week while looking for some leaf springs for my boss's 98 single cab BUT, I came out with some unbelievably cheap come-ups. Our junkyard had 25% off all week and man did I get lucky. The top cost me $62 and the seats ran me $52! Both need some tlc but SHEEEESH! The camper had some crazy fungus on the outside so just a quick spray got it off. Deep clean this week and sourcing weather stripping and some struts and what not to clean her up.

    Picked up some parts I ordered on Saturday

    A smoke test performed on Saturday suggested that the fuel pipe sub assembly was leaking profusely so i ordered a replacement from the local dealer.

    After installing the new one I cleared my CEL codes (P0441, P0442, and P0446) and went for a test drive, jumped on the Freeway for a couple miles, drive through town and out for a little Hwy cruise.
    When I got home I removed the fuel cap hoping to hear it hiss but got nothing.

    I rarely hear that hiss. It only happens for me after a long highway drive where I've used a substantial portion of the tank after a fill up.

    The important thing is that the codes don't come back.

    @Digiratus i appreciate the feedback. I didn't want to jump to a conclusion based on the absence of hissing however I thought it would be a good conformation that everything is sealed if it did.

    Finally got around to changing the ac control bulbs to leds after searching for awhile on threads trying to find the right size base for the replacements. Ended up being neo4 4mm base leds from super bright leds website. I also changed out the OEM knobs to aftermarket 2nd gen knobs. Love the more updated look.

    From Sunday, got the rack changed. Not a job I recommend doing in the rain, esp. when water pools in your work area, and your "tenty-thing" isn't big enough to cover the truck, hahaha. And don't trust the weather guessers - I was done by the time they said it would start raining.

    Was glad to have watched Zane @Speedytech7 and Dan @drr do this to Mike's @Digiratus truck a couple years ago, made the whole thing seem rather more approachable. Thanks guys.

    Looking forward to a write up on this one. I feel the aftermarket rack the PO of the 02 can only last so long.

    Agree, knocking the foot off the rack always makes copious amounts of trash end up in my face and eyes.

    I've done my rack twice now, and bushings on the rack another time, as well as replaced the hoses. I've done the PS pump about 4ish times (warranty replacements till I got the OEM one) and I will say working on the steering system on these trucks in general is annoying af. I wish we had a stronger option for our trucks.

    In terms of accessibility, it could definitely be worse. I hear that it really sucks on a 2nd gen or FJ with it being basically in the middle of the subframe kinda boxed in.

    Did it fit? I also recently recieved this filter & can't find a definitive answer whether it'll work before trying it. Thanks

    The 90915-YZZD3 for the tundra will fit if you want a back up/alternative, it's like an inch taller than the stock size filter. I like it since it's easier to get my hand around than the stock size. Been running them for years now with no issues

    I just saw the breather tube coming out of the actuator and assumed it was a Vacuum line and a quick look through my Haynes manual starting pointing towards VSV's so I jumped to conclusions.

    I'm still not sure what is wrong with the 4x4 system. I did see a thread in the 2nd Gen section of people soldering the terminals of the Actuator motor in place and I believe that's the same differential (from 00-06) I'm not sure if that's what my deal is but I'm not sure where else to look.

    what is the issue? 4wd not working? Actuator could have seized/died but doesn’t look like you have enough rust for that. Typically that happens out here where salt water gets into the actuator from a damaged breather and lack of use makes them seize. What are the symptoms?

    totally different diff than 2nd gen tacomas. They have an 8'' clamshell that is also a wider setup than our 7.5'' clamshell.

    Id first check the switch on the tcase to make sure it's sending the signal for the actuator to actually move first. Common for those to go out.
