    Great job conquering the Ozarks! I bet the 2025 WI Tacoma, 4runners, and Occasional Land Cruiser Calendar will have plenty of pic options from this trip!

    Got back home a bit after 9pm. 1814 miles for the trip.

    I had a bit of an oopsie on Wednesday. I was following Pat, and the radio discussion went like this...

    Pat's truck: CLUNK!!!
    Dean: Pat, did you just hit your rear end? Because if you did, this is going to be a problem for me.
    Pat: Yeah, I'm not sure what hit...
    Dean: Well, can't turn back here.
    Dean's truck: CRUNCH!!!

    I believe it's all just broken plastic and dangling sensors, and no metal was damaged. It's just a flesh wound. I know it's fodder for you guys to goad me into a new bumper, but I don't think that will be happening unless the plastic bits from Toyota are crazy expensive.

    Diff. breather reroute, in progress.
    Sprayed the old union with PB blaster on Thursday so it came off easily.
    Try not to over think it just leave some slack.
    I was reading a thread or 2 where a guy was trying to make it look as 'oem' as possible with zip ties and what have you.
    After looking around under there, if a stock look is what you're going for, simply follow another line and put a dozen wraps of electrcal tape around it. :blahblah:

    (Toyota used up half a roll from the gas tank to the taillight, alone)

    Electrical tape did just fine. :thumbsup:
    For the tail light end I found an old rubber grommet, to fit around the hose, so the hose would fit that plastic clip I had laying around.

    Thanks. I was big into car audio in H.S.
    I hated seeing wires.
