    Since it's pretty slow at work right now I'm doing some research on replacing my clutch. So far I'm getting the Aisin Clutch kit, Luk Flywheel and MC shifter bushing.

    upload_2019-8-15_15-57-21.jpg

    Is there anything else I should need or replace while I'm in there? First time doing a clutch but it doesn't seem too hard

    Most 'kits' come with the bearings, just make sure they're decent ones and not some cheap chinese bearings that are going to crap out on you...don't want to have to take it apart again anytime soon after you get it all buttoned up.

    I find packing one of the most unrated things people do on their rigs. It never stops devoloping ever either and I know from my own experiance having stuff packed right makes it way better. I get reminded of it all the time when i camp with other people and how fast I can pack up my rig vs others.



    Anyways.

    Id swat the cooler and put the tank there. The reason for that is of course the cooler is a high access thing. You'll want it for lunch on the trail and dinner of course. Having it more towards the rear is best I find. Running hose for the tank is easy and cheap. Im not sure what you mean by sink..but id think just a curled hose with a pump if needed will suffice for most all needs.

    I did the same parts minus the shutter bushing. It isn't too bad of a job but with having extra hands if possible. While on the 4cyl the flu wheel bolts are TTY, the V6 can reuse them. I would watch the Chris fix video and then there were a couple Tacoma ones I thought I watched. Do you have a transmission jack?

    I think you meant underrated? Lol I pack up quickly but set up quickly as well; love it.

    I'll get the water jug against the cab a try as next month I may do some dispersed camping.

    With that being said, I'll probably dedicate the big ice chest for condiments, and food to be cooked. It already serves said purpose, but I also toss in "extra drinks" that may not fit in the smaller ice chest inside the truck. When I set up base camp though, the ice chest always gets removed and put in the shade.

    What I mean by sink, I have one with a built in motor and battery. Has a port to connect a hose to for a water supply, and the unit itself has a fold down/swiveling faucet. Also has another port for outbound water; quickly and easily connect a hose with swivel and nozzle/sprayer of your choice.

    Yeah it doesn't tell me what they are. So I may piece my kit together and just get Timken bearings

    Not sure if I'm going to go to my buddies place or do it at mine but he has a transmission jack or else I'd go spend the $100 on it as I've heard it saves a bunch of headaches. I heard about the bolts and thankfully I have a V6 but I'll watch that video as well

    Edit: so you just reused the pressure plate? (I'm assuming that's what you meant by shutter bushing)

    underrated as in not thought about or talked about as much on here as say...suspension haha

    You have two ice chests? Sheesh. Now we get into the territory of bringing too much and trimming weight :D

    Sink sounds fancy. I prefer a simpler solution haha: https://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Pro...ocphy=9029301&hvtargid=pla-350277206789&psc=1


    Like I said. Packing the rig always changes and always can be better. Its an interesting puzzle.

    I took my time and it took me I think 12 hours start to finish. Jack makes it easier for sure, but you will need to also jack up the side of the truck to slide the tranny+tcase out to install your new bits too it.

    Hopefully you don't find surprises like this in there. Such a silky smooth throw out bearing...

    These shifter bushings

    http://www.lowrangeoffroad.com/heav...wler-mctm-521-mctm-522-mctn-523-mctm-523.html

    The OEM one falls apart over time and makes it difficult to shift.

    I have it sitting in my desk at home, don't quite need to change it out yet I don't think but one of these days I'll get around to it.

    Shifter* I put new clutch, pressure plate, and fly wheel in. Made a hug difference. All the parts are cheap so replace it all while you're in there as it is a lot of labor getting in there.
