The axle that was shipped to me from Columbia was not correctly identified and they picked it back up. They sent me an unlocked axle from a 4R and mistakenly thought it was a locked axle because the VIN identification said "center diff lock" LOL

Got a 2012 FJC axle from Grover, NC and planning on throwing it under the truck this weekend. Surprisingly they didn't hack up all the brake lines and e-brake cables.

Bone head move... I took out the 2 phillips screws on the VAF (22250-66010). I AM AN IDIOT.

I hope to try and re-solder/ connect, get a refurbished, find a salvage, or chance it on a Chinese aftermarket. Not sure what to do since they are Discontinued...

If anyone else is brave enough to admit this failure, let me know how you fixed it...

For reference: FJ80 3FE Air Flow Meter VAF Stupidity!!

Brave enough to admit it. :) Was able to re-solder and carry on. I did pick a spare up out of a junkyard via car-part.com to have just in case.
