    Can we pull the warning light bulbs out of our gauges? I have a bunch of lights on because of removing the abs and all the other stuff I’ve modified.

    Use the whole can. Wait for a warm day so you can leave the windows down for awhile after it's done.

    It'll have some residual odor for a little while but not as bad as the smoke and it'll dissipate.

    I'll have to see if I can find it, but I deleted my TPMS. There are a few wires that run behind the glovebox, and I believe there is a silver/pink wire you need to cut and ground out and it will eliminate the TPMS light.

    Check with local detailing companies. I had the same issue when I bought my truck, and I had mine o-zoned overnight and it nearly got rid of the smell. The real test will be this summer after it sits in the hot sun for a few hours.

    I jump started the truck this morning. When I parked on Saturday, I must have left an interior light on. Battery was flat. Grabbed my jump pack which I kept charged but had never used. Hook it up, turn it on and all the jumpstart prompts on the screen are in fucking french. Figures thats what I'd win as a door prize from my company.

    Chucked that shit and used The Woman's car to jump the truck. Really glad I discovered the french treachery on the booster pack in the driveway and not 100km into the backcountry.

    The search for a quality, non- french booster pack begins.

    Yeah that's the plan.

    I don't see why not, but there must be an ABS fuse that could be pulled as well. Just not sure if that hurts, I think the ABS plumbing intercepts the brake fluid between master and slave cylinders. I'm planning to fix mine the correct way, just not sure what the cause is yet. Hopefully the rings aren't badly placed, they seemed aligned after the bearings job.

    I've been trying to narrow down a lift for my truck and I'm now going into the 3rd week of trying to speak with the people at FirstGenOffroad. I've left multiple voicemails. Not calling back potential customers is an interesting business model. o_O

    Nothing on the unit. Just power, light and jumpstart. Looked through the manual (which is in english btw), and there's nothing there. Cant even find the unit online, nevermind instructions...

    The VW looked like a big ice cube this morning and I had nothing to scrape the frozen windshield with, so I drove the Tundra to work.

    Mine were made without lift, I reused my OEM shackles. The alcan springs came with poly bushings and sleeves at each end and fit right in place if you use the OEM shackles. No need to even remove the shackle from the hanger

    Contact @Roman at Toyota of Cool Springs, he is very responsive and has the best prices even with shipping. Go OEM on all parts, they are well built and hold better than most of the aftermarket stuff

    Day 4 of injector upgrade: Put about 20 straight highway and 20 twisty country road miles on the 02’. Still performing nicely as reported in previous days posts. Its becoming obviously clear, compared to before, it seems to always be in the proper gear now and when the power is needed there is no hesitation. Country twisty roads driving was fun. Eye on the gas needle looks like its always been, but will know more by end of week calculation.

    Did notice yesterday and today a slight hesitation during start up by a 1/4 to 1/2 second compared to before. Might be the cold dreary weather?

    Snake clamps on the power steering hoses stopped the slight leak at the reservoir. Will check on the slight motor oil leak at/over the oil pan some more over the next few days. Its hard to see due to the front frame being in the way when looking from underneath and the belt and alternator in the way from looking down from top.

    Thinking its the Mobil 1 Synthetic conversion switch plus the Liqui-moly purge has cleaned the engine sludge out revealing weakness in the gaskets on front on enging? That last oil change at 2500 miles looked dark and from readings the Full Synthetic first oil change is like this due to its cleaning nature.

    That's annoying. I would've expected good things from them. I'm not sure who's got experience with them or think of them, but I'm thinking of going to Filthy Motorsports for mine. Really good YouTube videos they put out too. But they mostly do King shocks. What are you looking at going with?

    I'm not seeing that. I must be missing it.

    I don't have the original springs so I had ruled those out.

    Toytec boss is what I run. Fully adjustable pre assembled coilovers. Cheaper than the big name coil overs, but non rebuildable.

    I'd like to see someone try the 6110 bilsteins and coils out on an AC.
