    Heritage edition wheels

    🤤 Damn, those look sweet! I'm hoping the coating you're talking about is just protection of some sort. That color is bad @ss against a white hundy, I wouldn't change a thing.

    Marlin Crawler 70” Slider install and rocker panel BS

    Damn, bad luck. I found something similar when I removed my running boards, no hole, but will be soon. Thanks for posting pics of it opened up, now I know what I'll be dealing with in there.

    Best source for Toyota WS ATF

    I can order it online from my local dealer for $7.85/qt. I've found that ordering online from the dealer can be cheaper than calling, or walking up to, the parts counter; then I just walk in and pick it up when the order is ready. Check and see if you can find an online ordering option from...

    Tensioner pulley kit

    If the actual tensioner part is still in good condition, ie still applying pressure to the belt, then you can definitely just replace the pulley without removing the tensioner. I did this on mine right after I bought it, and did the second ribbed side idler at the same time. Are you sure that...

    100 series exhaust manifold

    Price is too good to be true, and they have 3 reviews on Amazon, all one star. Complaints of poor fitment and leaks. If these weren't such a PITA to replace it might be worth giving them a try. In the case of the 100, doing it right and doing it once seems the best choice. Too bad it's not...

    auxiliary transmission cooler 2006 LX 470

    If you're worried about trans temp, then x2 on getting some kind of monitoring device. I run a Scangauge II with the PID programmed for trans temps. When I do tow it's pretty light, my camper is 1500# dry, and I've never seen the tranny warning light come on. Towing in the summer on the...

    Did the 100 ever come with rear side airbags?

    My '04 has 2nd row side curtain air bags as well. The 100 series FAQ from Slee indicates side airbags as optional in '03+, but I can't speak to the accuracy of that info.

    Replacing Steering Rack....question?

    The shaft on my '04 did not telescope. I had to remove the two bolts from 45219 in that diagram and slide it down the shaft then remove the entire shaft.

    Timing belt help.

    I just ordered the Aisin kit from Rock Auto a couple weeks ago. No issues, genuine article. Mitsuboshi belt, Aisin WP, Koyo idler bearings, NTN tensioner. When I order parts from Amazon I do watch who the seller is and who fulfills the order. Maybe I've been lucky, but I haven't gotten a...

    Timing belt help.

    The Aisin kit is pretty affordable on Amazon and Rock Auto at ~$165. Worth not using chinesium parts if you can swing it.

    Nitto Terra Grappler versus Ridge Grappler?

    My 100 had 275/65-18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2s (load range E) on it when I bought it. They have been fine on/off road, and in the snow. They currently have just under 70k miles on them, and are due to be replaced. I'll probably go with them again as they are the least expensive option of the...

    Seeking advice on shock and rear spring replacement... no lift

    For comparison I have an '04 with OME 865 rear springs and I'm sitting at 21.25" center of hub to fender unloaded with just added weight of sliders. They have settled some as I think it was closer to 22" when I first installed them. I'm also running OEM shocks from the dealer on the rear with...
