    Did you guys need to tighten that shit uncomfortably tight to get it to not leak like I did?

    probably because it was tightened by a monkey who wrecked the flare so now you need to tighten the fuck out of it

    Hopefully I'll never need to replace it then. :p Considering I only drive the truck 20k a year max anymore I should hopefully be good for a while. I was just stressing the fuck out tightening it up, I was fully expecting it to strip.

    When I did mine, I made sure to have new washers for both ends. Not sure how different it is on the 3.4 vs my 2.7 though

    Shameless plug for a product I recently skeptically bought but has blown me away: I hooked it up and used the Torque app on an old android phone I had sitting around. Great functionality and connection each of you should have one in your tool box.

    I use one of those little bluetooth ECU dongles with the Torque app as well, I really like the Torque app but my only complaint is how quickly it drains my phone's battery. I can't keep my phone plugged into my truck because it's an old beat up POS (the phone, not my truck...well maybe a little bit of both) and if I run the Torque app for 30 min or so it'll kill half my phone battery.

    You can do a ton of stuff with that app though, the list of plug ins and different readings you can monitor is huge. I haven't tried them all. I really only use it to monitor coolant temp, intake temp, short/long term fuel trims, and to scan for codes

    Maybe it's time for me to enter the market since I need to build one for my truck.

    Sucks that all of their posts were deleted as well with the permaban. Here's another member posting about the kit they received so you can at least see the photos there. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/stage-1-full-battery-harness-replacement.315939/

    There is lots of controversy on TW about Bamatoy. Building your own kit is very satisfying.

    Yup basically all of this. Realistically building my own kit was easy enough, and I have already use the crimper tool for many other things. Used it to make my own harness for the winch, bringing a fuse panel the the bed, and will eventually use it for building a dual battery setup.
