Replaced upper ball joints today. Drove in to the Toyota dealership with the tires bald on the edges and squealing loudly. Had a group of techs stare at my arriving chariot. They also reminded me that the steering rack is leaking. I have a spare, I don't feel like replacing it. Leaking seals, feed it fluids. Find SAS parts.
Stuck in a new 2012 Sony radio, went north and bought a sunroof cover, tickled 85mph, strongly considered a turbo upgrade, re-aimed my headlights, de-flood patterned my lightbar (now center 2 are spot; outer 2 are flood), and fixed the cigarette lighter.
It's the little things... also getting a CT26 this week for $30.
Well this weekend we wired the light bar. Did oil change and got a spare steering line made. Getting ready for moab! Starting to get excited! Doesn't look like there is enough time to do a shake down run so hope everything works like it's suppose to and hold together for moab.
Swapped out the front diff, found a few teeth missing from the ring gear, fixed the rear pinion seal, stuck on tabs for front turn signals, stuck on tabs for rear flood lights, stuck on tabs for the Rigid floods up front, and greased stuff.
top up rear diff, patch a hole in the exhaust, wire up lights, Cadillac horns, install gauges somewhere, and make a better damn cup holder.
Well looks like the site that I have all my photos on has decided to get greedy and won't display my linked pics on this forum anymore unless I "upgrade" my service. This upgrade is the super premo service and they want $400/year.
Looks like I will be exploring other options.
I will be...
Yesterday we lost a great soul. Molly was friend to many of us here and she was one of the OG cottora people.
Off reading in Colorado would not have been as great had it not have been for her and Troy and the Wonderful H.O.W.'s and the many other events.
We will miss you Molly!
