      Docwyte replied to the thread Bilstein failure.
      I've never had a Bilstein failure, across multiple cars/trucks and 30 years of using them. Sucks that it happened but a new set of bushings and a washer would get you back up and going asap

      Docwyte replied to the thread 2016 vs 2018 plus.
      I like my late '18, it's my DD. Will be very lightly built, not going to be taking it rock crawling. When I bought it last year it was one of the lowest mileage, lowest priced ones, which is one of the main reasons I bought it. Last winter the...

      I trickle charge the battery in my motorcycle as well as in my 911. Battery in the 911 is at least 5 years old, in the moto is 3 years old, both are fine.
    • Docwyte
      Yeah, don't know. I usually get 5-7 years out of batteries in my car, sometimes longer.
    • Docwyte
      Dunno about the batteries, I haven't added water to any of mine in years and years. The way I figure it most of my batteries last 5+ years, which is when I should be replacing them anyways

      I'd like to have the center of my rock warriors powder coated gold/bronze. Maybe this summer I'll pull them off and have it done

      This is a good endorsement for the Motive Power Fill. No way to get a cap stuck in your diff with it...

      Can you take the rear cover of the diff off?

      I'm not sure having a valve spring fail at 200,000 miles constitutes a "problem". What I mean by that is everything fails at some point and that's a whole lotta miles. It'd be one thing if the springs were failing at 60-80k miles. What would...

      I'm just not a fan of the bull bar look. I'll take my chances with a deer strike, come spring I'll install the Rhino bumper and winch I've currently got sitting in my basement

      I actually ended up selling it last summer on BaT. Was disappointed at what it brought, it was OEM+ with the recaro interior, mechanically perfect. Especially when one just sold on BaT for almost 50% more than mine did. Oh well. The guy who...

      All aluminum, 60 lbs. I might offer them with stainless skids which will be more expensive and weigh 120lbs. Threaded holes in the sub frame have stainless keyserts. Front cat guards are optional.

      I've got a Bendpak hd7w 4 post lift, then a Handy motorcycle lift that's inset into the floor so I can still park a car over it. I just remove the wheel chock Floor tiles are the snap together plastic ones, but I wouldn't get them again...

      Docwyte replied to the thread Considerations for Extreme Cold.
      In general, I agree with you. I don't like working on a car/bike I'm about to take on a trip in case something happens. However, in the case of something that's already partially broken, I make an exception. Better to fix it than leave it...

      Docwyte replied to the thread Considerations for Extreme Cold.
      I couldn't imagine leaving on a 3000 mile road trip, let alone in the winter with inclement weather, with a cracked radiator. Just fix the thing now before you leave! Why risk it failing completely? I wouldn't have driven around for 2 years...
    • Docwyte
      Nope, I never use that. Almost all my driving is in the metro area, so can't really run high beams ever
    • Docwyte
      Well, that's 1/3rd the price of the TJM one, so I might just buy the Weber one instead
    • Docwyte
      So I adjusted the stock rod to the top of it's travel. It's helped but I still need more, so I reached out to TJM. It took them awhile to respond, but they do have the linkage in their US warehouse. Oddly they then asked me for my address for...

      I've been displeased to find out that there's not a Toyota parts vendor like FCP Euro for the euro cars. Most of the online Toyota places charge enough in shipping that it just makes more sense for me to buy the parts from my local dealer. Ends...

      Docwyte replied to the thread Rear seat latch won't lock.
      It is pretty cold out now, but I've tried to slam it down harder and it hasn't worked. I've done that with the third row but I need to keep the 2nd row in, use it quite a bit What's strange is that it's latched until I fold the seat back up...

      I set this up but also bought a hard copy FSM from eBay. I'm old school, prefer paper manuals....
    • Docwyte
      So been noticing a strange sound in my 200 for a little bit. Tonight I figured it out, one of the rear seat latches isn't locking into place. It's the middle one on the larger 60 part of the rear bench. If I fold the seat forward, then put it...

      I've gotta say, I'm not concerned about the Jowett valve getting knocked off. It's behind my ARB skid plate #1 and #2, if a big enough hit to the ARB skid plate damages the Jowett cap, it would've broken the stock cap too

      Docwyte replied to the thread Bilstein 6112/5160 Installed.
      You need to compress the spring to move the snap ring to move the perch. So if you think you can get the front end of the truck in the air and sneak a spring compressor in to do that, great! Otherwise, yes, remove it completely.
