    That looks great. Do you know what year 4Runner you pulled it from? Also, is that shell for a Double Cab or Extended Cab?

    I don't remember what the guy had the year advertised as but here's a picture if that helps.

    Looks perfect on a double cab shell, mines an extended cab unfortunately.

    Front and rear are a PITA sometimes. Almost stripped the head of the rear diff fill bolt last week, glad I had a replacement.

    I did some deep digging, and actually found on a different forum where it was said NOT to use FIPG for the manifold gaskets. Also, it was not specific in the manual like it was for the VC gaskets, half moons and the cam covers, so I assumed I was safe. So I used no FIPG on the manifold gaskets.

    Speaking of FIPG, I’m putting my new gears in, would the black FIPG be acceptable an acceptable sealant?

    00295-01281 Can be used on the transmission cover, clutch housing, differential cover and carrier, extension housing, front bearing, ring retainer and rear axle shaft connection

    I first used the OEM paper gasket, even with proper torque, and a recheck after the initial 50 or so miles it leaked. So I used the red, no leaks.

    So then the 00295-00103 isn’t acceptable to use for the 3rd member or the front diff. Ultra grey should be suitable for the job correct?

    Quick question, what are the bulbs our clusters use?

    T40 for the backlighting and turn signals right?

    What are the bulb numbers for all the idiot lights

    Backlights are 194. Turns may be or they may be 74. I don't remember. I stopped going to LEDs on these things. Found more often than not they ended up super tacky. But super bright LEDs lists what each bulb is.

    The idiot light bulbs (including turn signals) are 74

    The backlights are 194

    The low gas bulb is different, says a14 on it

    The 97 4runner cluster definitely is neowedge for the clusters small lights.
