    GROM VLine - Google apps/Android&iPhone integration

    I had a VL1 and now have a replacement VL2 running 5.1 (so no update since they required it to happen by thumb drive). The VL2 is still a bit buggy but way more stable than it used to be. When it works, it works great. When it doesn't it's really frustrating. Support is...OK. I think they're a...

    HELP! Coolant lost in middle of big trip

I go to check fluids on...

    New Thule Trailer

    I’ve lurked on this topic for about a year, since buying a Thule 3205 off CG, by necessity during a summer road trip. I liked it so much I’ve ordered the lifted SPACE trailer as an upgrade. Therefore, I will put the the Thule up for sale locally and on various forums soon. I figured I’d put the...

    Frog Truck build/use thread

    OK, with my previous truck still not sold, my better half has co-opted the GX as the family DD. I got a Yakima aerobar setup on the roof for when I "borrow" MY truck for a trip coming up. I picked up a mini-hitch off a wrecked 4Runner to install at some point if I don't find a stock 3-point...

    driver's side axle seal repair?

    FYI, I did this with a buddy last weekend. He's a master mechanic so it was no big deal. The hard part was getting the front differential drain plug unstuck. The drivers side CV axle was a remanufactured unit. We suspect they didn't replace the seal and that's where the leak came from, and that...

    driver's side axle seal repair?

    Thanks guys. What's the board preference for diff oils? Drain and fills and breather mods are on my to do list.

    driver's side axle seal repair?

    I have what looks like a really leaky seal on the driver's side of the front differential in the new-to-me 2006 GX w/KDSS and 120+ k miles. I am mechanically inclined and have a more experienced buddy to help. Does anyone know the procedure for pulling the axle and replacing that seal? I'd...

    2006 GX470 price check?

    I paid $13.5k private party for a 2006 Sport w 120k miles, in need of tires and timing belt service but otherwise clean and in a rare color. I considered it a steal and thought $16k would have been more likely in my area. Another private party had a 2007 w 110k on offer for $17.5k firm.

    Frog Truck build/use thread

    Trying a copy-paste of lost text: Ok, with help from this forum, I bought a 2006 GX Sport a few weeks back as a 2-for-1 work 4x4 and family wagon. I've done a few small things already and have a long list of things to come, mainly limited by my time. Done: -timing belt/water pump, steering...
