    Urgent question for installation of Sumo under drive gears in the transfer case of a 2006 Land Cruiser 100 series!

    It was the idler gear. I have one on order and hope to install by Friday. Sumo, and cruiser outfitters specifically said no clearance/shaving of the transfer case is required, but the idler gear is. Is there something you’re aware of?

    Urgent question for installation of Sumo under drive gears in the transfer case of a 2006 Land Cruiser 100 series!

    Thanks for the feedback, you’re correct. It does need a new idler gear, a 39 tooth gear in order to function properly. I’m in the process of locating and ordering that gear. are you sure about the case needing clearance? And what would need to be shaved in order to accommodate?

    A Question on gearing and tire size.

    I didn’t know earlier 100’s had 4.3. It seems the only option for aftermarket is 4.3 or 4.88, nothing in between. Are you aware of 4.56 gears?

    HF Auto-darkening helmet

    Knowing what I know now, I would never trust HF to save a few bucks. Go with any of the name brands for welding, MILLER, Lincoln, Hobart... spend a few hundred bucks and save your eyes!

    Purchased and installed the BIOR rear bumper on my 100.

    it weighs about 150lbs, the springs i have are the ironman medium weight. I may add a one inch spacer but i can't say it needs it right now, maybe after i add the jerry can holder.
