    What mph were you doing? I've found my motor works up some heat going up grades <40mph. You've got a full load there, so it can really lug the motor. Turning off O/D and/or putting it in 2nd helps quite a bit. Bring those rpms up a bit. I...

    Just saw this, but hope you didn't go. We got back on the 3rd, and it was awesome but TONS of people were coming in for the weekend. The most i've ever seen. There is no way there are enough campsites, as most were already full when we were...

    ;)So West of Stockton, TX we ran across a guy with and 80 with charcoal cannister issues. Our 14th and Plum fix was to pull the factory cannister, hack the top off (hacksaw was used and loaned to us by a some local that was able to drive a 7.3...

    In all seriousness, don't put holes in the roof for a dealer installed accessory. Gutter mount rails are the way to go. I have a pair of crossbars from Sleeoffroad. African Outback brand I believe. Super solid. Any good gutter mount is the...

    now that’s funny. Was wishing I could find a pic of one atop a trash can/toter and there it was all along. Although we all are here in support of your new addictions and are all willing to spend your money I agree with general consensus. bowfin...

    FirstToy replied to the thread Sunroof Stuck.
    Thanks everyone for the info in the thread. It really helped, as this is a big unknown area. Some additional info: Problem: Rear corner of sunroof stays down, will not sit flush. Probably the cable or cable pull on one side broke- per this...

    I always compare between https://toyotaparts.mcgeorgetoyota.com/ www.partsouq.com Both will give me a freight estimate as well. both give quick credit if it turns out they are out of stock and don't ship it. I sign up for the DHL Freight from...

    I bought mine new for $26.xx from partsouq. I had a BUNCH of other things to come along for the ride, so my freight was lower. Total bill was about $125 less than USA shipped. Took me 15 minutes to swap in the new one and I now have front or...

    Exactly! Since this thread was bumped to the top today: I went out and found a 3 way T in the shop and tossed the busted diverted in the trash. Took 5 minutes. Also cleaned and aimed all the spray nozzles - Works like a dream. It truly is...

    Yes, a lot of little things really make a big difference!
  • FirstToy
    Thanks for the idea! I ended up getting a 1/4" barbed T from the hardware store. $3 for 12! (they also have shutoff valves for a few bucks to manually close off the rear- garden fittings) Full blast on the windshield again Couldn't bring myself...

    I came to accept the dribble out back, in fact I decided to design for it. After attempting to service the diverter, I just deleted it and replaced with this. The genius of this was that I could have full flow to the front, and a dribble to the...

    I know this has been mentioned before, but I couldn't find any pictures, and since everyone loves pictures... Since spring has come (once again this year) to North Carolina, I decided to do a little PM/RM on the fleet. Both my '94 and '95 leak...

    Mods please delete! Searched more and found relevant info- sorry ! Found the cause of my dribbling washers- all the fluid dumps out of the rectangular hole in what I assume is the diverter valve to the rear washer. If I silicone seal this hole...

    @ItsBavid they sound decent, not going to satisfy any hifi scrutineers but they sound better than the one blown, one disconnected factory units— and I didn’t have to modify the door card for face mounting. had a little extra motivation, modified...

    Did the same. Did you end up pulling the door panel to replace the inner weatherstrip?

    Did this today...on my drivers side front (outer belt). Takes about 20 minutes. Just adding some pics to augment this thread. Instructions by @blkprj80 are spot on.

    LOL....I will freely admit that the grill design played a bigger part in my speaker choice than it should have. I turned out to be really happy with the sound of the speakers, so all is good. I liked them enough that I ended up moving the P16s to...

    I made a video of the easy way to put the pioneers on the outside of the panel. I used 6 1/2 on front and rear doors. I plan on painting the grills later. Here is two YouTube videos of how to do it without the factory grills: Video 1 Video 2

    Sorry the second video on the rear speakers didn’t upload right. Here it is:

    Finally getting mine installed. More planned later, but wanted a rough OBA before heading to CO in a little over a week.
