    Wow a lot of work in one day. Can you please explain how you did a complete transmission fluid change? Thanks!

    I don't know why I am so intimidated about the trans fluid change. It seems like it requires a lot of steps and I guess I just don't want to screw something up. I do all my own maintenance and maybe I'm just being a wuss about this trans fluid change but why the hell does it seem so complicated??

    @WallyT4R I did a full transmission flush on my Tacoma, very easy if you use a pump sprayer. There's a good write up on Tacoma world that walks you through it. Same transmission as our 4runners

    CariD another email this morning stating working on return up to 24-48 hrs! They said 2-3 business days on 28th. today is 3rd business day now another 1-2 days? WTF And believe me it's not about the $44.xx it's about piss poor customer service.:frustrated: I don't if anyone here has dealt with them in the past BUT I will tell anyone who asked to stay away from them. JMHO:notsure:

    So after sending email that basically said Really another 24-48 for a return! They sent 2 attachments and I gave the box to UPS driver who was at neighbors.

    Nice! Thanks for posting this. So you didn't shift gears in between emptying and filling correct? Just at the end when you properly leveled it?

    Holy shit!

    This is what you have to do to change the trans fluid?

    Toyota might as well require you to complete a calculus equation and do a backflip before you're allowed to loosen the drain plug :rant:

    How about the internal trans filter? Always a good idea to drop the pan, clean the pan and magnet, inspect for anything that doesn't belong in there, and change the filter.

    5,000 mile checkup yesterday. I should have marked the tires to make sure they did rotate them (I really don’t trust dealers). I asked the cost to have a TPSM on the spare tire: $225!!!! Never mind. The evil empire sells them for $30.

    Can you provide details on the harness issue you mentioned? I have not heard of this but want to educate myself for the future.

    Well this POS lasted about five minutes until the adhesive tape gave way and let go. So I used the better 3M adhesive tape. I'll let it set up all night before I put any weight on it. If it doesn't hold then I guess I'll return it. This is the only place I put it that doesn't bug me. I'll have to make it work somehow or I'll probably have to trade in the 4Runner.

    One for my coffee tumbler.... One for my cold tumbler.... I actually use both.

    It's going back anyway. Just won't stick to the side. I'll figure something else out.

    Ordered these RAM Mounts instead.

    I love your color combo. You got the black roof rails, the beautiful white with the gray wheels.
    Not sure why I like the gray wheels (over the black) so much more! I am glad they came on ours also.

    Good luck not going poor from mods.
    I want our build done! It never ends & we have only had it 3 months!
    If you are going to build it; please start a thread! I would love to see it.
    Congratulations again!

    Laptop mount...?
    I thought it was for your phone?

    On a side note. A family friend is a private pilot (owns a personal plane). He has a velcro strap that he used to use for his Ipad.
    It would just velcro around his left leg & he could see all air traffic & a lot more (5 yrs ago).
    He is currently building another so this will likely be obsolete.
    For us, using an old iPad with velcro may be a great idea for paths etc.
    Any pilots on here?

    I’m eyeing a black SR5 with the grey TRD wheels at my local dealership. Just cloth seats but has the roof rack and rails...Pretty good price...And I’m sure it will be even cheaper in a few short months...

    We weren't set on leather (vinyl).
    However after thinking about cleaning & the sunroof. We had to spend the extra $2k for the ORP premium & got both!
