    What fails the most on these pumps? I’ve gone through three this year, theyve blown after some high rpm’s and wheel cranking… part store pumps :anonymous:

    Looking for opinions!

    Im laying down dynamat/dyna liner in the cab and the plan was to replace the carpet with a vinyl floor. But I’m wondering if it would be a better idea to keep the carpet and just put the vinyl floor over the top. For extra sound damping. My thoughts are the reason to remove would be to avoid having wet carpets that have the potential to get moldy under the vinyl. But on the contrast I’ve never really had water issues…

    what do you guys think?

    ALL OF THEM!...Then some more.
    best thing to add to the floor is Mass loaded vinyl. The floor is already pretty stiff so it doesn't resonate as much as say your doors do. Then I'd put the carpet on top of that for a bit more absorption(not a lot really) and diffusion.

    +1 to mass loaded vinyl. Even if you never dealt with water ingress in the cab yet, if it happens once you will hate yourself for not installing something that is naturally moisture resistant. Also trying to have the current panels close down on something as thick as jute padding + carpet + vinyl will also be a huge pain in the dick.

    yeah I’m using the dyna liner. That’s their version of MLV. So maybe I’ll just skip the carpet and finish with just the vinyl top. End result being: dyna mat, dyna liner and then vinyl floor

    So I chased down my noise to a bad idler baring.
    Is it possible to just replace the baring? It has a snap ring holding it in but I didn't see a part # when looking at diagrams.
    Anyone have good luck with the aftermarket pulleys/idler barings ?

    If you are still running the OEM idler pulley, then yes, just replace the bearing.

    It's easier to just replace the whole pulley but while you wait for it to arrive if you need one shipped you can rebuild the bearings that are going bad. Just punch out the bearing with an appropriate sized socket and remove the rubber seals. Clean them out and repack with grease. Then repeat in reverse order. You'll have a spare afterwards.

    First off, aftermarket pumps suck. The one I tried only lasted a year, and was noisy from the get go. Good thing I saved my OEM pump. Rebuilt it, and it's still going strong. On the 5VZ pump the rebuild kit is just O-rings. There is no bearing, so it must be bad O-rings. The 3RZ pump does have a bearing, so obviously it could be that too.

    It doesn’t leak anywhere though, just gives up the ghost

    This. Rebuilding is the best option. O-rings are where a lot of them seem to fail.

    No dynaliner is acoustic foam isn't it? We are talking mass loaded vinyl, like this:

    Basically blocks road/transmission/engine noise.

    I think they leak internally, from one part of the pump to another causing the pump to not be able to produce the required pressure.

    I was planning on doing this. I even took the actuator off my old dif. Hadn't gotten around to swapping them yet, and I'm glad because the 4wd light started working today! I have used 4wd daily, off and on, since I put the new dif on last week. I guess it just needed to knock the cobwebs off.

    How did you program? I have a 2001 4 door and it has power locks and the guys I bought it from who was the original owner said that it had keyless entry, but I don’t know if it was dealership installed and maybe an aftermarket one? My 96 is all manual locks and stuff so the power locks and keyless entry is confusing to me. Pm me if we don’t want to gum up this thread

    You'll want qty 2 of those in order to cover the floor of the cab

    Gonna pass, just spoke to a tech at dynamat, basically said it would be overkill and that the dynamat extreme that I’m using is essentially doing the same thing.

    I want to say there is a difference in programming between the straight 'keyless entry' and the Toyota Alarm system (which is what I have). Attaching PDF I used.

    Isn't the dynamat extreme just the butyl rubber stuff? or is the other stuff you're using also made by dynamat?
