Yeahhh Chris, its been a freagin while :). Been busy with all kind of different staff, life is crazy, but that is nothing new.
My Yota is still running hard, but I was getting itch for a new 4Wheeler. Had my eyes on 4 Door Rubicon. Almost went to the dark site, however, when I looked at the amount of space in the Jeep's trunk it was a definite no no for me since I got a lot of crap I take with me when I go camping :D. So I decided to stick with my aging Yota, but give her some fresh up make up like timing belt, etc.

I just picked up new tires, now looking for shop to mount those tires for me. I will check Hanlee's shop, its a bit out of the way for me, but if they worth it I will definitely take my Yota to them.


What is up with you? Any wheelings going on in the NorCal? How many of the "old" guys still remain on the forum?

I know the owner and use to work there. These guys are the best on the penninsula;)
Hey I called them yesterday, umm got to say they gave me a pretty hefty price :rolleyes:? Don't know though if I need to do all these things that I was told they will do:

"$850 to $940 quote.

Timing Belt
Water pump
Timing belt hydraulic tensioner
Timing belt idler upper
Timing belt idler lower
Multi Rib Drive Belts (3 of them)
Thermostat Gasket
Thermostat
Toyota Long Life Coolant
Parts Cleaner"

I was thinking that a TBelt should be a job for $500 no more :confused:?

The tensioner and idler pulleys are an optional thing, I didn't change out mine because they seemed fine under inspection. However, if the truck has over 150,000 i would change them. Everything else should be done whenever digging into the front end like that :2cents:

$850-940 seems a bit steep, these engines are really easy to do a timing belt job on. but if that includes pulleys and a new tensioner then i guess its not too bad of a deal as long as it ends up on the lesser side of the quote.

He's gonna see what he can do, he will get back to me.

You have to remember they have a pretty awesome warranty with they're work as well.

25 months/25,000 mile

I don't think any other independent repair shop can beat all the parts,labor and warranty for that price.

replacing the water pump and other drive belts along with the Tbelt is normal with hi mileage. as suggested...optional on some of the other stuff upon inspection.
