    Went to work. Not for money though. I figure if I made it this far making pennies. I don’t need anything from anybody...

    Replaced my other cv axle as the boot finally tore last week so now I've got the extended CV axles on both sides -

    20210116_123932.jpg

    Here's the one I installed about a month and a half ago or so -

    20201122_163108.jpg

    Issue now though is my cv axle seal may be bad on the first axle I replaced because it's leaking diff oil slightly.

    Also, installed my OME 890 springs now that I've got my dual swing out. Kind of a pain in the ass considering how much longer they are compared to the OME 906 -

    20210103_153907.jpg

    Here you can see the 906 -

    20210113_122830.jpg

    And the 890, with more wraps not to mention additional height. The giveaway being the angle of the panhard bar -

    20210116_123903.jpg

    I've now got about 2 1/2" rear lift versus the 2" that left me level.

    12mm hex tool for the drain bolt.

    Ensure that your fill bolt can be removed first though, as sometimes people strip it after they removed their drain bolt and can't fill up their diff anymore.

    10mm hex tool for the fill bolt.

    I wrote the part numbers on the baggie above for the crush and flat washers for said bolts.

    Out of town, and had to pull off as there are several trails right around where I parked so marked it as a waypoint.

    Before that, found a pic I took from a similar angle...to think it went from this -

    hey guys, not sure this is the proper place for this, but replaced rear struts on hatch, and when I took it to fill the gas tank before gas goes any higher (thanks Biden; sorry Keystone guys), I noticed that my 4Runner's ignition key can be pulled out while the truck is running. Is this normal? my first Toyota, and i'm curious.

    yeah, been thinking about a rolled umbrella that you pull open, use spare tire crank handle to close, double-sided 1 inch velcro strips to keep rolled umbrella shut, attached to cargo box attached to roof rack, storing pair of collapsible poles in box, or maybe in the tube at the end of the umbrella? a tube with a hole through both sides on each end for the spikes of the poles to fit through? Velcro closing strips can be figure-8 wrapped to secure pole to tube. Maybe time for the wife to exercise the Juki ... hummm ......? pics to follow. Thanks for jogging the gray matter.
