    Probably a stupid question

    I have used 87 pretty religiously, but have used 91 when towing and don't believe it helped at all. I probably would run 91 if I was driving in the mountains or pulling long hills.

    LX Diffs

    Ok, so................ someone, anyone, correct me if I misspeak. Your LX should have an open front differential and a limited slip rear differential. While the differential in your transfer case automatically locks in 4 low, it is selectable in 4 high. You should only engage the center diff...

    Moab disaster turned best experience. Grandpas Garage!!!! BUY THE BRACKET!

    I ordered mine from Kurt this morning, very courteous and professional. I work at a Jeep dealership, so I'll have one of the techs install these when I'm getting some other work done. So glad to have came across this thread.

    Do I need aftermarket parts?

    As is being talked about elsewhere in the 100 forums, if you replace the front UCAs, not bad to throw this bracket in at the same time OME FK27. Moab disaster turned best experience. Grandpas Garage!!!! BUY THE BRACKET! and they're only $27 Not meant to hijack

    Moab May 19-23

    Going on vacation to Moab towards the end of May. Unfortunately, we will be taking our JL Wrangler and not our LX470 as it's $400 vs $800 in gas. We will be doing mild/easy trails, nothing hardcore. PM if you're interested in wheeling with us.

    To those that have deleted their AHC

    I did not replace my swaybar and have been driving on the lift for almost 2 years and don't see a need to.

    I agree. I installed brass tees and assume they'll outlast the motor

    Which lift: Slee, Tough Dog/ Ironman or Icon stage 3 super deluxe

    Yeah, I was pretty ...I'll say dissappointed. They had a tech come talk to me and tell me it wasn't worth my time. I don't want to say the name of the place as I might need them in the future. If it's one of our brands at my dealership, we don't turn it away, at least as far as I know.

    Which lift: Slee, Tough Dog/ Ironman or Icon stage 3 super deluxe

    I'll throw my .02 in here. I bought my 98 LX470 in ( I think) May of 2016 with 172k. The ride seemed pretty good, but the AHC seemed weak and tired and wouldnt always stay in high, even at a crawl. As time went along it became a seesaw. The dealership I worked at (non Toyota or Lexus) wouldn't...

    ATF Drain & Refill Questions

    When I asked a Toyota mechanic about flushing the transmission for my '98 LX, the tech about came out of his skin. He told me "You NEVER flush this transmission. This is a 500,000 mile transmission and it has a drainplug for a reason. Drain 4 quarts, add 4 fresh and drive. Repeat every 12-24...

    Lights

    Before you replace anything, or even scan for codes, test the battery. If the battery is junk, then you need a new battery anyways. Low voltage fries modules, sensors, etc. No good comes from a crap battery.
