Little help with the front diff

So it's been a long while since I posted on here but I finally found a front diff with 4.10 gears that I can swap into my taco. Sad news is after trying twice I have come to the conclusion that I have spent far to long away from a wrench, I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the axles out and d/c'd let alone get the diff out to put the new one in. Also the diff I got came off a truck with ADD and I have manual hubs, I trusted the guy who sold it to me who said all I have to do is replace the ADD unit with the pipe of my diff, but I don't have a inverted torx socket to get the bolts off. If any of you has experience with this I would love some help, there is a case of beer in it for ya and all you'd have to do is come hang out and give orders.

Looking forward to being able to come play again this summer, it's been far too long.

You can buy the socket extension for the torx bits at Autozone or the like. It's somewhat cheep and seems to have held up good.

I go experience doing what your trying to do tho... Good luck.

So can I borrow you and your female torx bits for an afternoon? I can come to you or you can come to Boulder. I have all the tools except those bits but I would hazard a guess that you probably do to. Sun Mon works best for me as I have both days all day off but I could probably work a different day if needed. I'd like to meet the new prez as well, last time I wheeled with you guys Chris was prez, then driftinco after that. Man it's been too long. Thanks for the help, I look forwaed to hearing back from ya.

I can't see how that could possibly be interpreted in any way other than how it was intended, unless of course your mind lives in a gutter.

Welcome to the gutter.

Are you sure it's sundowning? I thought that described a degenerating mental state, as opposed to simply being a degenerate.

If that's not the case, I'm sundowning 24/7, in addition to being a lesbian.
