Not super hard, but for the noobs on this board who like pictures, here is where you tap the box. I recommend either removing the box, or hooking up a large amount of extra ATF and keeping the engine running so that the positive pressure expels the chips from drilling/tapping.

Basically just drill and tap like this:

I want to thank you for the multiple parts you've given me for my truck, that was very generous and greatly appreciated. It's been fun hearing about your escapades in the Hammers and other wheeling trips, and Richard loves talking about the packing material he uses for the trinkets he sends you. It's really too bad the mods didn't get to know you better before you got banned or perma-muted or whatever it is they do to you. :beer:

Spent 20 minutes finding a pic to determine if it was "TOYOTA" of "TOYODA"... I think it is the latter.

Agree that this is one of the best mods!

I concur one of my favorite modes. Theirs nothing like being able to turn with the locker on in the big rocks.
My was drilled, taped & rebuild by west Texas off road. They taped the 2nd O in TOYODA and down through the top like 2Fpower last picture.
I sure top or front like nukegoat diagram works.

So, closer to the "a" than the "o". And that should be a "d". Otherwise spot on.

I highly recommend being borderline blackout drunk while doing it as well. My neighbors came by as I was trying to drill it with one eye closed to cure my double vision, told me that was never going to work, and left. Proved his dumbass wrong.
