You shouldn't have to cut or remove anything for them to fit? What year is your cruiser?I did my tailgate this week too (i found it easier than the hood i did last year).
Also cleaned out the AC cabin box. I bought a dryer lint brush from menards to help clean it out and then AC foaming coil cleaner to clean it (multiple times over a day). I thought my AC drain drained fine but after the cleaning, it is much better and no more drip on the passenger side.
I did order the filters from amazon and just sawed off the tips and the filters fit fine in the stock LC box.

I got a couple sweet coffee table books delivered yesterday. They are used but in like new condition. View attachment 2009029View attachment 2009031
I will be using these to cram for the following PM items this weekend:
1. Heater tees and all related hoses and clamps.
2. Water pump.
3. Timing belt.
4. Serpentine belt.
6. Radiator hoses/flush and fill.
7. Tensioners etc.
Another vote for Rhino Rack bars, if bars are your thing. I eventually changed to Gamiviti for canoe reasons.
Any links to show how the rears are done? I see the fronts just have the single screw. Thanks.
@bentonrover after a few days of research i went for the EBC slotted & dimpled rotors and 6000 series green stuff pads. I initially ordered Yellow stuff but later realized and confirmed thru a few friends that it sheds a lot of brake dust while stopping power is almost the same (unless on a track day).Mine were slightly worst. RF pad material was gone and it was scoring the disk. Replaced everything woth OEM and the brakes are amazing!
Looks great brah@bentonrover after a few days of research i went for the EBC slotted & dimpled rotors and 6000 series green stuff pads.

Here’s a comparison on the OEM Toyota and the new padsView attachment 2009406
The EBC pads already has a shim on it (on double sided adhesive)

While at it I serviced the wheel bearings too made sure it’s still intact (thankfully it is), repacked fully synthetic grease on the hub, cleaned the surfaces too using steel wire brush and semi-detailed the wheel well area, even pulled down the OE skid plate and repainted it full with 2K polyurethane clear lol.

Even came with this:

Looks like it’s a type of anti-seize grease similar to that of what Denso provides with their Oxygen sensors except this is metallic gold in color.
