    Shiiiiiiit, I'm curious hoe much sludge is under all three sets of my covers. All of mine have been rode hard, high heat, put up wet, and oil changed.... sometimes on time.

    I just don't have the freedom, or time to do what I want right nows.

    Anyways, I'm 3 modelos in with dad. Currently riding passenger prince in my own car going to get sushi.

    curious why I never hear anyone on here just doing the one and done engine flush products.
    We used to sell that service at the shop I worked at in college. IIRC, you just drain the oil, pour in the flush chemical, run the engine with the heater on high for like 15 mins, then drain the chemical/sludge mixture, and fill with oil and slap on a new filter.

    as far as I know. Thats why I'm wondering if there's a reason unbeknownst to me that no one here uses those products and would rather spend several oil changes dealing with it, or even taking apart the valve covers. But I really don't know. I just know its a service we offered and I saw performed a couple handful of times. I don't think I ever did the service myself. I mostly just changed oil and did state inspections.
    any service shop will have an engine flush service listed among the other usual trans flush, coolant flush, power steering flush, etc. I think back in 2012 we were charging $60 for the engine flush service.

    For me personally I’m just not familiar with any of those products. I’ve used seafoam for years and have had good results in some of the motorcycles I’ve rebuilt.

    Now you’re just bragging! My commute was 5 miles. That’s one reason why my truck is so low mileage.

    Yeah I've used seafoam several times myself just for piece of mind when I buy a used vehicle. It's cheap and I usually have bottle in the garage already anyways

    I actually wanted to go 5160, but Toytec didn't have any 5160 or 6112 for our trucks at their site, and I wanted to roll all the shipping into one where possible. Wasn't sure if I'd really be getting 2x the performance to match the 2x price, either - like, seriously.

    This is only phase 1 for me. I'll go wilder later.

    Some of them are legit. Some are really harsh. I mentioned it before here, I think, but my grandpa would replace 1/3 of his oil with kerosene, and run for a long while (like an hour) with that, and swore by it, his stuff was clean as a whistle. But living out in the boonies of north LA, it's not like he had a lot of other stuff to do.

    Hell yeah. I have a Honda mower, I've had it for 10, 15 years now? Always throw a little SeaFoam in the tank. This week, I finally had to rip the old carb off and swap/rebuild it. Man, I opened up that carb, it is freaking spotless inside. No clogs in the carb. No residue internally or in the bowl. No cake on the float. Spic and span, and I've never taken the carb off. I was shocked.

    I'll be interested to pop my oil fill off in the coming weeks to check out my top-end on the driver's side after that 1st 500 mile run with SeaFoam high mileage. I've used regular SeaFoam already in the crankcase, but usually only 50 miles or so on it.

    Yup I’ve the same experience with some old Honda CB750 carbs. I’ve rebuilt a few. Shit works. I also use it as a stabilizer in my gas can for the mower And the tanks of my lawn equipment. Shit fires right up every spring.

    Gotta wear a mask or your asking for problems. Actually the worst IMO we’re the rubberized bumpers that came out in the 80s & early 90s. The chemicals used during prep were incredibly nasty smelling and could give anyone a headache without proper ventilation. Today it’s not even nearly as bad since they refined & mastered the process.

    I can’t confirm if they are 2x better but they do ride nice and I liked the fact that they had longer extended lengths. I got them from wheelers off road and they offer free shipping for anything over $100. Also saved 10% when you sign up for their mailer. Not a bad deal.

    I'm going to give the 5100s a go with an open mind. If I don't like, I'll keep eyes peeled to see if I can net some 5160s for $300 shipped. Sometimes you gotta sit on things for a while, but I'm an avid coupon-and-deal whore. :D

    wheelers usually had a black friday discount. They also give Tacoma World members an additional 5% off because they are officiall venders. No idea why they aren't vendors here since Bob owns both forums.

    edit: apparently wheelers was bought up by trail gear, but they're offering 15% off

    Ordered these weld-on sliders for my truck https://80percentoffroad.com/products/1st-gen-toyota-tundra-weld-on-rock-sliders. Had to take advantage of the reasonable price including shipping and the 15% off sale. I got them for $584 shipped, which I think is pretty reasonable. Maybe I'll have my shop weld these on and try and remove the stuck studs at the same time. I've been wanting a pair like this for a while. I think they will complete the look of the build.

    Didn’t touch my truck at all yesterday. Hope to get a feel for the airbag problem today. Super stoked to have it home finally. Gotta work on the registration and title change now too.

    probably use it to go get supplies for building firewood storage. So nice to have an 8’ bed for hauling again.

    Would love to get going on seat heat, mirrors, mirror heat and all the audio stuff but it seems like that stuff may have to wait a bit since it’s less urgent. Airbag fix takes priority so I can bring kids with me.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    I know you are a seasoned vet, but be careful out there. Took my old man down some trails yesterday and things got dicey. Probably shouldn't have been going 60-70 around curvy/hilly trails in the rain.
