    2 weeks ago, I changed :
    Air filter, and fixed cracks in the housing.
    Mass Air Flow Sensor
    6 plugs, 3 wires, 3 coils
    PCV valve and grommet
    1 VSV under hood, just got 2nd one so that is next.
    Had a friend change the VSV on the canister to get rid of the P0446 (which was the fix)

    Just got sway bar and link bushings in so that will be next.
    Waiting on fluids and gaskets to arrive, then I will do both diffs and transfer fluids.

    Nothing fancy - installed a new battery and alternator, then drove it to TN to spend a couple of days with my some of my grandchildren.

    Ran the power wire from the battery to the cab for my ham radio install. (I first need to figure out why my rear hatch will no longer open.)

    Does your new lift gate shocks still allow the gate to come down some after opening? Or not quite full open?

    I recently swapped my out and I thought I would have gotten a fully opened lift gate. Did not work as I had hoped.

    I fully gutted my 4runner interior. After 19 years it was time to do a complete overhaul.Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 10.12.30 PM.jpg
