    It's not available on amazon, or I'd have included one for you. At least, I couldn't find it: https://amzn.to/32YWInt

    I think in this case they do share part numbers. Not true for all plugs (the drain for instance isn't shared). I ordered the Lexus part (from a Toyota dealer) when I ordered.

    Yeah they share part numbers for pert near everything. We just picked up a gx470 and pretty much the only part numbers not shared with Toyota is some interior things.

    Then I proceeded to breaking the custom exhaust job with a mound of dirt ‍♂️ You can see where the pipe hits the leaf spring; inches short of the bumpstops

    Solution - reroute the tailpipe behind for added ground & leaf spring clearance

    :drool: wow! Truck porn!

    Where did you get your rims from?

    :annoyed:

    I backed into a ditch that had metal fence poles with cement on them in my 4runner. Set me back a couple hundred bucks for a new bumper and paint. So mad because the runner is pretty damn clean. Stupid mistake on my part

    So what you're saying is it's a "FREE" part from the junk yard?

    You don't need a winch, or even traction boards to get that truck out. All you need is a shovel.

    Full body work and repaint done on my 1st gen with a new camper. Reupholstered the front seats. Ordered deaver leafs, JBA uca, and fox all around. Just waiting for those to arrive. Going to slap on the latest OR wheels to match. He’s going look great. Looking for a good tranny shop in Santa Cruz if you know of one. Pics to come after the suspension.

    Would have been digging for a ways, but you’re correct. I shouldn’t have taken my shovel out of the pickup when I cleaned the bed out.

    I installing a new generator today. I love how easy it is on my 2000 Tacoma compared to my RSX. Soooo easy...except for the fact that some tool totally rounded off the nut on the tension lock bolt and after hours of attacking it every way I could think of, I finally just had to cut the damn bolt at the base of the nut. So no tensioning the pulley and belt, no driving until I can find a replacement for this special bolt. I wonder if my local parts stores might have one...seems unlikely, somehow I suspect I am going to be waiting until next week on a new bolt before I can drive again. Sigh.

    Ps just learning how to post photos to the forum so testing the difference between a thumbnails d a full size image.
