    Leather seat comfort of lx470 vs GX470 vs gx460

    We're actually going through the same thing as well. My ranking of comfort would be LX, GX470, then the GX460. For most of the model years of the GX460, they seem to have very "boxy" seats with not much contour. The GX470 seemed to have a better fit/feel to them, but not to the level of the...

    cracks in both side exhaust manifolds

    Not a red flag and doesn't indicate any other or deeper issues. Also, should not be a cause of any other issues either, even if they have been leaking for a while. The exhaust manifold leaks are quite common. Factory Toyota parts alone are $500-700. They are somewhat time consuming to replace...

    Anyone know what this warning light means?

    If a shop did the work, take it back to them. If the light wasn't on when you took it in, then it's something they caused. Whether it be an issue with the timing or an unconnected sensor or hose, something is wrong. A properly done timing belt + water pump should not result in the check engine...

    "The Big Three" Electrical Upgrade

    Not sure we are talking about the same grounds. I'm talking about the one from the battery to the engine, the one in the picture above that is cut right at the battery terminal. I want to put a new lug on it and new clamp. If I had to guess, I would say it's closer to 8 awg, but want to be...

    Cig lighter to Dual USB conversion

    I give you guys kudos for taking the time to swap out the cigarette lighter outlet for the USB outlets, but I have to ask, why not just pick up one of these low-profile adapters for $10?

    Rear wiring routing

    I routed a big 2/0 awg cable through the firewall on driver side, then through kick panel area. I punched a new hole with bulkhead fitting, but if your wires are small enough, you can poke through one of the existing rubber boots. Remove the two kick plates (if that's what you call them, the...
