      TimCFJ40 reacted to auggafj80's post in the thread Bilstein failure with Like Like.
      Yes, bushing, nut, and bolt still on the vehicle. Meant no disrespect on my repair comments, just don't have time at moment to fix. I appreciate your advice on that. I probably will repair them when I have time and sell them. I did buy two new...

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread Bilstein failure.
      You do you, but there's nothing wrong with those shocks, other than worn out bushings. I assume the bushing and the nut and bolt were still attached to the axle? If not, the nut came loose first and I'd peg it as an installer issue, not a shock...

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread Bilstein failure.
      I'd guess you could replace the bushing and put it back on for fairly cheaply. Curious, if the rear shock eyes are larger than stock, but you reuse the stock washer and nut, should there actually be a larger washer to prevent this from happening?

      Replaced the cheap black Amazon special tuner lug nuts I put on 3 years ago with the proper McGuard lugs. The coating was pitting and rusty and looking terrible. Next I’ll have to do something about the rough looking center caps…

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread What is this stuff?.
      If that is from a hose that vents from the crank case, it would not be uncommon to see some small amount yellow gel, which is essentially an oil/water emulsion from a small amount of airborne moisture condensing and mixing with oil mist. This is...

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread Kayaks on rack.
      Wide Yakima bars are my go to, sometimes with kayak stackers to load them on their sides, sometimes loaded flat. On their side they clear the hatch much better. I have seen kayak stackers made by Malone (and others I’m sure) that would fit the...

      TimCFJ40 reacted to yellowgeko's post in the thread Rig turns over but dies, RTH with Like Like.
      Just to close this out. I bought some MAF cleaner from CRC and sprayed it out. I wiped out the intake hose, unhooked the battery, and waited about 30 min. Buttoned her up and she started once and died. Tried again and was heavy with the gas and...

      I am excited to see how they perform!

      This. While it takes a long time to wear, I rank Water pump a wear item along with belts, tensioners, pulleys, and hoses. But if you can get it covered, you might as well. Otherwise you wasted a pretty penny on that warranty.

      Looks great, and those defenders look great too. Probably the tire most of us need, were we not slaves to fashion wanting an aggressive looking tire. I'll likely replace the K02s on my DD Tacoma with those soon, it sees a lot of Highway miles...

      I wish I could take credit for finding these but I stumbled across a random Instagram user who happened to use F-Sport Center caps off a GX460 F sport wheel on their own Rock Warriors. Since OG clean center caps are hard to come by and no one...

      @bj70bc sad to say that I have one, but I clearly neglected to use it. @TimCFJ40 thank you, I'll change it when I get back.

      your gear oil to motor oil ratio is going to be like 100 to 1. I wouldn't hesitate to go 300 miles or even 3000 miles before changing. When I changed my rear diff after an unknown number of miles (that is most certainly over 60k) the oil was...

      Planning for a 10 day trip out to Colorado from Tennessee and a 10 day trip up to Maine from Tennessee. By the end of the summer (likely part way back from Maine), the cruiser will roll 275k miles. Not Three months epic, but pretty excited...

      This. This said everything I was thinking about as I read the OPs post.

      as usual great forum! replaced the check valve and it fixed the issue. many thanks

      I think you're pretty set. Definitely get the winch set up, that would be my priority. HAM's probably not a bad plan if you're really going to be remote. Also, I'd endeavor to keep it simple. Do you really need dual batteries etc? A...

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread New Toyo Open Country R/T Trail.
      Looks like an updated Ridge Grappler, and I would suspect it will eventually overtake the Toyo RT spot in the line up. (Nitto and Toyo are sister companies so I am sure they shared notes). It looks like a pretty decent tire.

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread Want lift with OEM ride.
      I'd consider new springs all around at 150k miles. I run the Bilstein Springs up front with my 6112s, and OME 2721 coils in the rear and it rides great. Before I replaced the rear coils, the rear end was wallowy, even with new shocks. Bilstein...

      Pic is looking down from above. It looks like the axle is shifted a good bit forwards.

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread CV failure.
      Fi I'd look for two things: 1) Are the cams on the LCAs way off from each other? I.E. Forward cam is all the way in, Rear cam is all the way out 2) do the CV angles look significantly awkward? These pics from the linked thread look like the...

      TimCFJ40 replied to the thread CV failure.
      I'd make sure that your installer and alignment shop didn't adjust the SPC Control arms too far forward, causing the CV issues before I put another CV in. @TexAZ had some issues breaking multiple CVs due to overzealous adjustment of his UCAs to...
    • TimCFJ40
      Those are OME's standard shocks, so they do not have adjustable preload. There are no good quick cheap fixes. No matter what you do, you'll need a new alignment (even if you could adjust the preload), and all of the good solutions require the...
