    Coolant leak from under truck?????

    I ended up giving up on the "high end" red hose and bought 3 feet of regular 5/8 black heater hose. I lubed up with the same silicone paste I used to speed up my windows. They slid right on, and I was able to finish up fairly easily after that. Removing the heater selector thingy and the plastic...

    Coolant leak from under truck?????

    I call "bulls***" on the second video taking 15 minutes to bypass the rear heater. Maybe if you have the strength of a man and hands the size of a small child's, and 2 extra reversible elbows... This has been an absolute bear to get to anything back there. First of all, the hose clamps are...

    Sticky windows

    I'll give a thumbs-up to putting 3M Silicone Paste on the window tracks. It helps a lot! I plan on putting it in the tracks for the rear sliding windows too, as they're pretty sticky... but damn, this Ohio February has made this a very very dirty truck!

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    That $670 also included the exhaust manifold, so yes, still pricey, but not quite as bad. Also, they got me that exhaust manifold in one day, which I couldn't have done. I was really wanting my LX back.

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    I called Jegs again today. The rep told me there was no ship date from Borla, and she put me on hold and called them. She told me they said it MAY ship sometime in March. I promptly cancelled the order. Since this Borla stainless cat-back is apparently unavailable from anywhere right now, and...

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    Update: I ordered everything on December 12th. The Magnaflow y-pipe and a few days later the 2nd cat from O'Reilly. Received each within 2 days. The Toyota gaskets and exhaust hangers from toyotapartsdeal.com. Received them on December 22nd. They sent them via USPS. I'd be pissed, but at...

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    Sweet. There's an O'Reilly not far from here, and about the same price.

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    That first thread you quoted was pretty disheartening... so I'm fairly likely to get a crappy(er) Bosal part in a Magnaflow box, even if I get it directly from Magnaflow's wesite...

    Thank you, exactly what I was wanting to know.

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    Those headers are purdy... but the exhaust manifolds don't need replacing. I don't have to care about emissions here. I just want it to fit together and not smell like rotten eggs. Oh yeah, and the whole environment thing I guess. If it will fit together without a $273 second cat, I'll gladly...

    Question about exhaust: what else do I need?

    So I blew a hole out of my O2 sensor connection, got real loud, and kinda stinky in the cab. I took it to my exhaust shop guy to see what kind of magic he can work, and he says the previous owner has hacked on it quite a bit and I pretty much need to replace the whole exhaust. He told me to get...

    Unofficial Ohio Cruiser parts FS/WTB/trade thread

    I have running boards and used springs from a LX450. I will never put them back on, so no need for them to hang around here. Make me an offer and come get them before I use them to make something ridiculous. Near Urbana.
