    Well, today I picked up my Cruiser. Yes, 2/25/04.
    Well, you probably have read the thread when I took my Cruiser in, and I mentioned that I was going to do it myself if it wasn't done. Well, I chickened out and had Toyota do all the work....
    Hose, air Cleaner(bellows boot) + shipping + lab-mechanical $210.62

    Correct seat(move back 2"s) $0.00

    Idler Pulley S/A $66.31
    Idler Pulley Assembly $37.07
    V Belt $14.02
    Alt. Belts $20.54
    _________
    Total(including labor $208) $373.94

    Fr. Axle Gasket Kit $273.83
    Type S oil seal(2) $16.82
    Gear Oil $22.50
    Bearing, Rpt, 20, 52, K $121.96
    Freight $12.00
    _____________
    Total(labor $640) $1087.11



    Total for everything:$1,741.32

    Now all I need is a new antenna kit and gear box....
    Antenna is on it's way and labor will be free. Plus I had a Suzuki Aerio that I got to fool around with. :D

    Anyways, I am just shy of 102k miles. Also, they detailed my Cruiser, but I couldn't wait, so I put it into 4lo and crawled an embankment at a parking lot and I took several runs down the beach. It feel goood to be back in her!!!
    Thanks for your help guys!!

    Don't you dare say that! Don't ever say that! You're not cheap, just inexpensive and I'm sure that I speak for everyone when I say we love you for it. :D

    cheap is in the eye of the beholder,
    I work in the collision repair business and there are two ways to do things I think it applies here as well
    Cheap way: generally s***ty job and unhappy customer
    Right way: giving the customer what they expect in a timely manner(i bit different when you are on an island than here) and charging a fair price for the repairs done.

    if you are happy with what they did and feel they did you right and are happy with the truck then it wasn't grabbing your ankles it was paying to do things the right way.

    I like the fact they had the nerve to charge him some freight on top of that healthy mark up. At least it does look like they did a full repack (assuming the gasket kit includes everything but one set of the oil seals??)

    Unfortunately LX450 specfic parts must be sourced from a lexus dealer. The lenses fall under that category.

    Knob, plain, 33542-20150-C0, list $69.42.
    Knob, leather, 33542-20160-C0. list $205.40

    I am curious about moving the seat back 2", how did they do that? seems like it must have been easy as they charged nothing for it?

    Dan, wouldn't shiping be kinda spendy to the Islands? but still prolly cheaper than retail however. MOst dealers won't install parts you brought in......correct? (however mine has before)

    I know that UPS will ship to AK and to the Islands next day air or second day air. Next day is crazy money second day is not too bad, it depends on the weight. We will install owner-provided parts, with the understanding that if there is a failure it is not our responsibility.

    Christo summed it up once by saying it would be like carrying your own steak in to the restaurant and asking them to grille it for you. ::)

    Of course if they sold a 200 dollar rib-eye it might be worth the effort ;)

    Landpimp, when they took apart my seat and put it back in, they had it too far forward. I'm not the skinniest person and I like to sometimes just sit back. I asked them to move it back 2"s. It's still on it's track with the stripped gearbox. So they didn't move the brackets around, they just moved it so it wasn't so far forward on the track.

    Also, the parts are shipped to the mainland, to Oahu, then to the Big Island.


    Also, do you have the fender flares for the rear doors on the pass. and drivers side?? Or do I need to buy all four(front and the 2 pieces rear)?? Also, do you carry other brands or types of fender flares?? Oh yeah, are they already color coded?? Thank you very much!!
