    I have his skids and they are great. Removing the filter is no more or less messy than with anything else. I have a fumoto valve and tubing for the main oil drain...works great.

    It was fairly messy since my paper towel wasn't under the filter enough. If you put some paper towels on the skid plate on the driver side of the drain hole, you should be able to absorb most or all of the oil before it runs much. Or some people put a plastic bag around the filter when unscrewing it to catch the oil.

    This. I don't have the fumoto so the hole has plenty of room to get a hand in there to turn the plug.

    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.

    swapped out the wheels from the 4runner to the tacoma. 4runner is for sale and had brand new 265/75/16 yokohama geolander AT/S tires, and i liked the rims from the 4runner better anyway. Also had 1" wheel spacers on the 4runner from when i had 285 tires, moved those over to the tacoma as well.

    I also took the odyssey battery out of the 4runner and installed her it in the new to me tacoma.

    took her to the local offroad park...

    and yikes!! My 4wd is not engaging. The little green light doesn't come on. So i had my wife drive in 4wd and i see the front drive shaft rotating. So i thought, maybe the bulb is out in the cluster. Nope, I go to go over an obstacle and nothing. only the rear wheels are kicking....any ideas??? i tried going in reverse and forward a few times in 4wd to see if it would engage...nothing!! I'm lost here

    Not the best info, but kinda gives you an idea. Id check and clean all plugs on transfercase and any you may see on or around front diff. Check any vacum lines also. http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=62596
