    I have an 03 so no ECU in the seats. I just unplugged it and there were no errors and it seems fine lol

    Once you get modding you won't care about KBB anymore. I am so far over anything I can get for mine I don't care anymore lol

    I may be close by. You get to be neighbors to the overlord :P Join GXOR on Facebook if you use it. We have a global and regional chapters, including GXOR-GA and we do get togethers when we don't have an unscheduled apocalypse.

    Slim to None. There are throttle controls...but the ECUs can only be piggybacked. The Toyota/Lexus ECU is incredibly hard to crack.

    Can be bushings in the rack under load or internal seals losing pressure. I had a rack that had chipped teeth on the mechanical side (first rack) and a rack that had an internal seal leak (second rack). They aren't exactly the most robust...

    I run HAM with a 10" solid antenna (compactenna) and I get 15-75 MILES of range. In an emergency I can jump on FRS or GRMS on low power and get through as well. These formats blow CB away by far.

    I did the resistor thing and they get HOT. Like no joke hot. Plan accordingly.

    I swapped to a smart tap relay using a toyota 9 to 12 pin harness I repinned to make it work (and killed my DRLs) in my GX470. 6 ohm is the resistance for hyperflash usually. Make sure you put the resistors where they can cool and not touch any...

    I just loosen the drain plug with a socket and extension and let the oil drain down the extension until I pull it away. Or I just have someone else change the oil when it goes for the next upgrade (usual approach).

    Denso. Bosch has variability in the voltage that will still throw codes a lot of the time.

    This is a fantastic problem. Congratulations.

    Wish I could have made that. :(

    If it's a 4R you should unlock the CDL, shift to 4L then relock the CDL to troubleshoot each function.

    Vlad replied to the thread Four Low Engage.
    Is this a 4th Gen 4R or a GX? Sounds like the CDL wanted to lock or was locked when you attempted to shift? Can be out of phase...but that beep is from the CDL. If it is a 4Runner with the dial, the 4L actuator is right next to the CDL actuator...

    Vlad replied to the thread 2004 prado.
    Sounds like a plug is loose. The ABS module and the wiring on the engine can get knocked a bit while working on a starter. Also, may be a fuse or possible the brake switch (brake light). Otherwise...going to need the codes.

    If you want to bypass, you can do that easily without messing with the actual pump. If you don't have noise and will be in there, I HIGHLY suggest you swap the filter on the SAIS pump while there. It will drastically increase the life. There...

    If you get a proper coil conversion with the right shock it rides better than airbags and is way more reliable.

    yep

    It arrived! Totally worth the effort to see those boys smile :)

    Not something I did to my GX, but I did get the GXOR gifted GX on the way to Idaho from Oklahoma! GXOR bought a GX for a member who lost his wife to cancer and had to sell his GX to cover expenses. She wanted him to get a new one to take their...

    Vlad replied to the thread Help identifying oil leak!.
    Valve cover bolts come loose over time. If you toss a socket on there and tighten each one gentle tight (no ugga) and feel any turning, it is likely the issue.

    You named yourself GXOR on here? hehe. I'm flattered :)
