    Where did you purchase the PCV Valve & Grommet from? Do you have the 3.4 in your truck? I'm about to purchase the same but don't want to go to the stealership!!

    Well, mine is so-so. Virgina/Alaska/Utah truck. I pulled the bed and knocked off the loose scale then hit it with rust converter, rust converter paint, then topped with rust preventative underbody coating.

    We will see. My truck is so clean and solid.... It would be such a waste and tough to find a comparable replacement.

    Nice car. Soortscars compliment these trucks very well imo

    So OEM isn't important in this application? I don't have a carquest anywhere near me. There's Napa, O'reilly's and Auto Zone. What brand is a good one to get besides OEM?

    I was trying to go the Amazon way since I have an Amazon $50 Gift card. I put in my truck info on Amazon and it says this Toyota Part# 12204-62010 doesn't fit my truck. But I googled the Part # and it says it's for the 3.4V6 but also says it's only good up till 2003. Let me know if this is the correct Part # for the PCV Valve you guys got. Then I'll just grab a grommet off of Amazon too. Thanks.

    Ok . Follow up :

    Cambridge vs. total chaos uca?

    I feel more people use the total chaos .

    Are they worth upgrading if you aren't wheeling and are doing a 2" OME kit ?

    2" ome lift. Meh. stick to the oem uca. Trucks still perfectly alignable at 2" and it will work without binding through full range of suspension travel.

    Now if you were at 2.5-3" lift where driveability is affected and possible tire wear it would be a good investment.

    Steering rack went out. Bent a rim. Fucked both front fenders. And lost the brakes on the trail. One of the lines came loose....

    Good times.....i guess
