    I put on TRD decals on my 2005 4Runner. I know some people do not like these because my 4Runner is obviously not a TRD edition but heck I really like the look of it.

    I looked at the receipt and crawled under and checked out the transmission oil pan and it was not removed. The service ticket just said flush and fill. From what I have been told the filter is basically a strainer type. So far I am pleased with the service.

    Started to mock up rear plate bumper. Will have swing outs from both corners, one side will hold spare tire, other side for Jerry Cans.

    Have some minor tweaks to make to pull corner in tighter and match rear hatch shape better.

    I installed a Pioneer AVH-X5800bhs and Sirius. Metra car kit fits to snug around the face of the radio. The radio has a motorized screen which I can not utilize because of how tight it is.

    That's pretty sweet! What did you do to switch out the background? I think mine may be the last year's model. I'm wondering if I can do something similar...

    If you search for Toyota backgrounds for pioneer double din. They should come right up. Use your computer to do this. You will then need a flash drive with nothing on it. Make a file on the flash drive called photos. Then plug the flash into the USB of the radio. Use the drop down menu on your radio select USB. The photo should show up and on your radio there should be an upload button. It's an arrow in a square pointing up. Click that. Then it should ask you which screen you want the logo on. I did both. I know that's a lot. Took me a litttle bit. So if you have issues PM me and I will try to walk you through it

    Ive recently added my CBI rear bumper and now the rear is sagging a bit. I may need to change my shocks out soon. Any body here got experience with the old man emu shocks? Rightnowivego icons on front and rear but im thinking about OME in the back and continuing with ICON on tye front as i prefer the coil over shocks and the ride...

    Had some tinker time

    Was putting these in the rear bumper but changed my mind:
    F69F542B-12F1-4DE6-BF5B-923404A4B841_zps_8c510722364132b571a0b1301d0cc541f8e0ba76.jpg

    Decided here:
    9BDD7668-EB25-402E-A04F-C6C25F3AB9BC_zps_ba3c7fe2bf9943b2d7a4b62ec2d20e5317f374a3.jpg

    Not mounted yet but made the cut:
    2311E70C-E668-47EA-9190-D93A54794965_zps_884b7200d0ec46c491a77b6d49918a2e9bba46c4.jpg

    Put the shift knob in as the plasticement was dry
    7BE9A496-AFF3-44D5-9557-D37CBD720B56_zps_2ca091bffad989de0429708cb3308c1f3824fa9c.jpg

    Had some parts come in for some needed maint as well Valve cover gasket, new plugs, front axle seals, diff and transfer case crush gaskets, antenna stuff for the radio as the scion is only using one.

    That was it - but a lot more coming soon...

    None yet. Just purchased it.
    This has been an on going process with all this but have not been on here for a while and thought I would post up some progress of the Rig.

    I put in a dual battery tray that I sourced (if you would like the parts let me now) and modified to give it a factory appearance. Built a fiberglass switch holder in the sunglass compartment in the overhead and built a drawer system for the back.

    I changed the auto transmission fluid and filter on my '05 V8 Runner.

    IMG_2693.jpg
    Original filter.

    IMG_2694.jpg
    New filter.

    IMG_2695.jpg
    Cleaned the pan and magnets. New gasket.

    IMG_2696.jpg
    All torqued and re-filled. Drained out 4 3/4 quarts and re-filled with 5 quarts of OEM WS fluid.

    Getting the fluid up to the correct temps and pulling the check plug to make sure that the level is above the standpipe is tough to do without burning your skin on the exhaust.

    I don't know what Toyota has against dipsticks-enough of us drive their vehicles. :anonymous:
