    Finally started replacing the driver side apron. Just prepped the replacement from the junkyard.

    There’s an amazing amount of spot welds.

    Is that a part I can buy, or does the dealer want to sell the whole assembly?

    Long over due for a small sub and new amp for the speakers in the Taco. Upgraded the stereo but didn't splurge for a touchscreen like I wanted. I'm actually quite Impressed with this Sub. I come from 2 12" subs in the daily driver so I had tempered my expectations, it sounds great in a small space. Dog Tax on her napping in my seats while they're out lol

    Trying to get my wheels looking nice. Practicing on the back to see how sanding and polishing comes out. Not too bad. At least it looks cleaner lol. Now I know why they charge so much for wheel polishing services, it’s so time intensive

    So front locker was done today. Went and picked it up and installed the relay and switch. Put it up on jack stands to do a test. The front diff was moving all over the place. I can’t imagine that’s being normal. Although it felt normal on the ground, so could it be a result of being at full droop? Anyone with an Eaton locker?

    the locker was engaged, although the driver wheel had a half second delay when I would grab the wheel

    Like enough that it could be a loose bolt?


    The shop that changed my diff forgot to tighten the back bolt/ stud, whatever it is, made a big racket

    Does it move when you grab the diff and lift it, worn bushings?


    I dunno, just throwing stuff out there
