    I appreciate it/you either way.

    I don't think cost of contracting job out vs. Driving to Texas is something I'm looking to do math on. :rofl:

    It can be plug and play if you use the Toyota adapter harnesses for scions and their microphone (Bluetooth won’t work at all without a mic connected) all in all with the anytime camera I’m 400 into this thing. Can’t beat it. Yes there’s better aftermarket. But this just works

    One of my good friends is the parts guy at my local Toyota dealership. (He's trying to get me a job there as well.)
    If this is a matter of buying a radio and a harness, I reckon that's a lot easier than wiring in all new speaker wires since my truck has the stupid backseat amp.
    ...unless my stupid backseat amp means my truck needs a different wiring setup. I've never been big into stereo. I just want something I can hook my phone to and stream some music and answer the occasional call.

    Then you may have issues getting this radio to work. If it was the amp under the radio then it wouldn’t be a big deal.

    FML. This is the only thing about my truck I don't like. That damned amp in the back seat is a day-ruining bastard if ever there was one.
    I really don't want to re-wire the whole stereo system (and dismantle 2/3 of the interior) to change the stereo.
    Even VW/Audi never did anything this wildly inconvenient. And those pesky Germans love their multiple redundancies. Like triple-redundant PCV/CCV systems...made of plastic.

    Wire them in parallel. Otherwise won't get the right voltage across all horns

    Like such? The passenger side horn has one wire and I plan on using same technique as this driver side picture which has two wires.

    Hows those Amps looking. Fuse is 20Amp. Only fear is when the alarm goes off with horns and haz lights flashing at same time.

    Got my drive shaft back from the balancing shop. Didn’t fix my vibration issue. There’s literally nothing else to replace on the rear end. Now I’m wondering if it was my cheapo CV axles binding up. 2.5” of lift can’t be terribly good on them.

    anyone got any suggestions? I’m about to sell this pile if I can’t get it fixed it’s driving me bananas!

    @lsaami what sort of vibration are you having? It isn't tires?

    What wheels are you runing? The stock comes from your avatar?

    Stock wheels. It’s a driveline-esc vibration. Faster than the wheels turn. I feel it in the steering wheel faintly, but also in the floor. It feels exactly like a bad u joint, but there are no more u joints to replace.

    @lsaami that's gotta be hard to trace. I assume the donut coupler thing has been replaced on the driveshaft.

    If not the shaft, not the coupler, not the wheels or tires, I might look at the motor and trans mounts. My gut says there has to be something out of balance to cause vibration but it's possible that a mount is failed and is transmitting vibrations that you normally wouldn't feel.

    Did you get a road force balance? After three "regular" balances I continued to have vibrations as you described. I finally got a road force balance and it solved my problems.
    May not be your issue but thought I would throw it out there...

    Good luck!

    Yep, new u joints carrier bearing, drive shaft balanced, new cv axles, upper and lower ball joints, inner and outer tie rod ends, new steering rack bushings, LCAs and bushings, new shocks and coil springs, leaf springs, drive shaft phased correctly and drive angles check out.

    ......headers installed...

    Nuts came in today which was awesome but holy hell did this install whip my ass!!!

    I made a few mistakes I absolutely regret and should have known better but I am impatient. I temp installed the headers while waiting on the nuts. What I didn't do was remove the studs from the few that came out and I had to try to get those back in while the headers were installed. (they were NOT in easy to reach places)

    Also, removing the nuts in those tight places is MUCH easier than trying to thread on new ones!!!

    The pass. o2 connection is stupid!!

    Lastly, the damn 00-02 BAMuffler is meant for an 00-02.....the pass. flange needs to have about 3-4" removed and welded back on. This was the biggest pain because the muffler was installed to both cats so I had to undo the cat, install to the header, uninstall driver cat to exhaust, reinstall exhaust to pass. cat and finally realize the damn thing just doesn't fit!

    Needless to say, I'm tired, my truck is super obnoxious and I'll deal with it later...

    The positive side, I have to take to exhaust shop immediately so I might as well do my side exit through the body and just wrap this thing up!

    No pics tonight.....

    honestly at this point. get yourself some massive bolts to put where the axles would go, pull the axles, use bolts and nuts to tighten the wheel bearings to spec and drive without front CV, if the vibe is still there its all rear related or tire related

    @lsaami I know it's frustrating but don't give up on the truck. You'll never get back all the money you've put into it, even if it was $1,500 originally. You're close to figuring it out.

    I thought the same.

    I bolted down a pair of Thule mounts. For now they're just gonna roll like this but later I'll drop nutserts in so they're easier to remove.

    Yes like your pic....

    4.5A each.

    Just try it. Worst case you blow the fuse and figure out a solution with a relay and circuit.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll have to give that a try. Another thing I was thinking is to put my stuck struts back in without the spacers.

    You're pretty close to maxing it out. A good rule of thumb is to keep it under 80% of the fuse rating. 20 x .8 = 16A. The fuse can handle it, but its gonna get hot quick. And the relay might not like it. It would suck if it arc welded itself closed. I'd add a second fuse and relay and use the original relay to trigger it.

    I know how long I hold the horn for when horning.
    But do 'regular' people hold the horn that long? Or do 'regular' people just give 'er a beep and move on with their lives?

    **I can neither confirm nor deny if PHM is in anyway 'regular'.
